It’s time for us to rethink our relationship with food, says Eve Lahijani, a Los Angeles-based dietician and a nutrition health educator at UCLA. She offers three common-sense steps to help get there. 1. Reconnect with your hunger.

  • I am just waiting for you to be walking and chatting to the camera and actually pass someone else walking! Where’s all the other walkers?! ��

  • The tip at the end about treating yourself/your body like you would a friend is brilliant and definitely something I will be implementing. One of the things that helped me most with my disordered eating habits is being open about them with friends. It can be hard and embarrassing, but it’s helped so much when friends ask if I’ve ate and encourage me to do so if I haven’t. Sharing your goals and finding a support system can be so beneficial when fixing a relationship with food, because it can be such a hard thing to do on your own.

  • While I’ve never had a bad relationship or an emotional connection with food, I did have an uneducated relationship with it. My issue was not understand what I was actually eating and the effect it has on my body. Learning about macros and nutrition its self has been so freeing for me! And YES, I LOVE cooking and it made my postpartum weight loss much more enjoyable! Thankfully I’m able to stay home with my kids and cook 90% of our meals. One of my favorite places to go is the grocery store…lol I’m such a mom, but I enjoy it!

  • Hi Kara! Thank you for sharing this wonderful and informative video.

    I am 9 days out from my first bikini competition and could not be more excited with the package I am about to bring to the stage. However, since it is my first time competing, I’m worried on what will happen after.

    Will I binge and eat everything I’ve been deprived of?
    Will I restrict myself just as much for fear of putting back on some (needed) weight)?

    What is your best most concise advice. Much love xoxo Danielle

  • just went to several different markets looking for non dairy yogurt with little sugar. impossible. all< 10g sugar. Even non fortified nutritional yeast wasnt available at sprouts,. 10k calorie challenges are so dumb. thx for pointing that out. your moms the best

  • A whole other can of worms is orthorexia… Which can be the ugly side of eating healthy and thinking about how each food benefits you it can easily turn into its own obsession. Probably a topic for another time though 😉 Love this video!!!

  • Thank you for this video! I needed this. So helpful, I struggle when I leave work to just go straight home to eat and not stop somewhere.

  • I love you so much. I’m a runner and it’s hard when you don’t look like everyone else on the starting line and I always compare myself, but you help me realize the being healthy is what’s important most

  • My relationship with food is phucked up as hell.
    Being really restrictive, then binge eating… then starving myself as punishment for eating. I still didn’t lose weight. Even did keto… only lost 2 pounds in two months.

    My mental state was preventing me from losing weight.

    When I decided that I didn’t care and I was going to build my relationship with food, I finally lost weight.
    Your past videos have helped me change my mental health along with ‘clean and delicious’ channel. She has a series about intuitive eating.
    Thank you for this Kara for this! ����

  • I have a horrible relationship with food, but I’ve been working on it. My parents, though I love them very much, are the biggest reason I have such a horrible relationship. All of my life my mom has been on and off diets and both of my parents constantly comment on the way they hate their body and how they’re fat. Because of that I’ve always been obsessed with how I looked and I’ve always felt fat and when I’d try restricting myself, I would eventually binge and then feel so guilty about eating whatever junk I had.
    But now that I’m an adult and learning to love and nourish my body, I will allow myself to have a brownie or some chips if I want, rather than not eating it and then bingeing later. So I just have a little a time when I want it and it makes me binge a lot less. And rather than being focused on my body, I think about my parents health and how I already have a good chance of getting diabetes. SO I think of eating healthy and exercise as a way to both fuel my body and prevent health issues in the future.
    I know this was long and I’m not sure if you read this, but you’re one of the biggest motivators and you teach me so many things. Without you I don’t think I’d be going down the road to better health! So thank you so much <3 I appreciate you so much and I love all of the knowledge you bring in your videos!

  • A lot of good advice and good thoughts! In regards to a conversation you had with another person in the comments, about how some people eat low calories in the form of junk food.
    I was one time watching an episode of “My 600 lbs life” I think it’s called, and the doctor said the person was malnourished. I couldn’t understand how that could possibly be, when they were eating like 8000 or 10 000 calories a day. But they were getting all those calories out of junk food, so no nutrients, no vitamins, nothing. A ton of calories and no nutrients, like drinking coke all day. It was eye-opening for me, since I was having pretty much the same diet, except it was a normal amount of calories. It was one of the things that made me change my eating habits.
    Also, your mom is so subdued compared to you! ��

  • Pizza is junk food in the US but Italian pizza is actually not that unhealthy, it’s just that it’s a lot of carbs but we use only fresh and good ingredients, it’s baked (nothing fried on it), not that thick, plus there at not as many toppings… unfortunately American pizza has transformed a good food into trash >.< Anyway, luv your videos, keep up the good work! P.s. isn’t your name Italian?

  • Thank you so much for this video, I’ve been struggling with my relationship with food lately and this has been so helpful and informative. It’s so appreciated!

  • You need so many more views… this is TRUTH. I feel like no one talks about this stuff and it needs to be addressed way more often. Thank you so much for putting this out here.

  • I like 16/8 intermitent fasting method. Started with it 3 months ago, and I like the effect. Love to hear your words of wisdom Jimmy.

  • When you said that we should all strive to do what is best for our us where we are at right now that really resonated with me. It also meant so much in your previous video to hear that you had been in a season of life were you were only working out twice a week or so. To know that there is so much more than fitness and that our healthy selves will look different and have different routines in different seasons is such an important reminder, one I know I often need. So thank you for your transparency and truth. <3

  • I really appreciate this video. I’ve been working on my relationship with food and making it better. Relationships with food are often emotional and working on this relationship is difficult but rewarding. Thank you for vlogging about this topic and I look forward to your next video!

  • Is there any chance you would do a video about following a good diet on a low budget? It would be SO helpful and wildly appreciated!!!

  • Really appreciated this video!! I’m a big over-analyzer, over-thinker, control freak when it comes to food. I try to “justify” my food choices ALL the time and the more I “deny” myself the foods I crave, the more I desire them and eventually I cave in. It’s a really unhealthy cycle and I’m sick and tired of feeling like a slave to food. I track my calories and macros too but that may be part of the problem… Why do I make this so confusing hahah. Pardon the blabbering ��

  • I like 16/8 intermitent fasting method. Started with it 3 months ago, and I like the effect. Love to hear your words of wisdom Jimmy.

  • Yeii!! Hi mommy!!
    It’s amazing that you have a good relationship with your mom!! Your sunglasses are awesome, it suits your face very good!!
    I need to work on my relation with food… Hehe I have the tendency to think about what is bad about the food I’m eating, instead of thinking about the good things, or eat healthier foods…
    So… This videos are awesome!! You are awesome Marisa!! Keep bringing that amazing content!!!

  • Hi Kara! Thank you for sharing this wonderful and informative video.

  • Gosh this is such an eye opener!! My husband and I are constantly having those battles with food such as what to eat, when to eat and all of those impacts. My mindset has changed over the years and I think I put way too much of a emphasis on it when I wish I could relax when it comes to eating! Thanks Kara for this awesome talk!

  • A whole other can of worms is orthorexia… Which can be the ugly side of eating healthy and thinking about how each food benefits you it can easily turn into its own obsession. Probably a topic for another time though 😉 Love this video!!!

  • I love that last piece of advice! The whole video was a masterpiece with very important info but that last point drove it home! I teared up a little because I thought about my son and my daughter like you’re right I would never starve them or force them to exercise just because they ate something “unhealthy” I’m always telling myself I’m only going to live once I get 1 body 1 life I just need to dial it back on enjoying all the foods I’m a major food lover I cook a lot I make my own breads and sometimes it’s not the best idea to make a ciabatta loaf and sit in the kitchen dipping it in olive oil @12a cause it’s fresh and delicious lol I’ve learned my emotions get the better of me from time to time and when I would have a bad day or my kids wouldn’t sleep all through the night and have a bad day I’d eat the worst stuff possible. My relationship with food has indeed improved I’m not punishing myself anymore I enjoy the little things but I’m very mindful of how it effects me in the long run now. Biggest lesson I learned recently? Sugar=acne for me I cut it out had some candy and a cupcake a few days later had 2 giant pimples on my face felt like a failure but I definitely didn’t punish myself for it.

  • Thank you for making and posting this video. This past week has been rough on me. I’m overweight because of a medical condition and I was feeling hopeless and worthless. This has helped me feel so much better!:)

  • Just think about the mindset of eating for low calories. The whole point of food is to get things, including energy. Low calorie tells me you’re getting off on the high of candy and soda but don’t want to get fat, like a druggie who thinks “just one bump to take the edge off.”

  • It took me a while to get less obsessive with food, either eating too little or too much.
    I stopped rewarding myself with food and using food as a pick me up.

    I treat food the way I do alcohol… That cheat food is when I’m hungry and I fancy it, to celebrate a good moment. Rather to make me feel better or if I’m bored. So if I’m at a party, or a birthday, or a holiday… Then I eat what I want.
    But I don’t beat myself up.

  • This is so helpful I have been having estrogen low for 6 years n I did not even know about it.. now I know n really don’t know what to do? My bones hurt n my vitamin D is less

  • Hi mommy!!
    I’m not proud to say this but it’s part of life. During the last 3 years I have had several stages to discover the food that adapts to my body.
    *I have already exercised, so now I can eat a cookie (the whole package is eaten). I ate salad so now I can order dessert. I have eaten many donuts at breakfast, I ruined my day, so I better finish the popcorn and ice cream once.
    *No, I should not eat pizza, I should not eat cookies, I should not eat donuts… I even got to the point of not eating anything and counting all the calories.
    *The fruit is healthy, the oatmeal is healthy, the salad is healthy, the tuna is healthy, the chicken breast is healthy, so I can eat as much as I want, as long as it is healthy.
    But why am I still fat if I eat healthy?
    … Recently I started using an application to count the macros, and I realized that although I am healthy, I tend to eat a lot. That has helped me lose those extra kilos I did not want to leave.
    And to tell the truth, when I eat without counting the portions, I still have that tendency to overeat.
    And yes! I am an emotional eater!! So, i know the struggle…:(

  • I have a different kind of bad relationship with food. I know the healthy things, I don’t punish myself for eating unhealthy, but I have no healthy habits either. I don’t restrict or have any rules. I just eat a lot of junk. I would like to eat better, but in the moment I don’t want to so I usually don’t. So bad relationship with food, slowly working on it…

  • I struggle with this all day and I feel like I have started my fitness journey over so many times because of my emotional attachment to food. Thank you so much for the tips!:)

  • this was very helpful!! thank you! as someone that is going through anorexia recovery, it is always hard to “treat” myself with something i like, if i been thinking about certain food for the whole week, i go against my mindset and eat it, and i start asking myself these questions: why did it make me angry?(bcz i ate it) why did i have it?(bcz im craving it and im hungry) did it ruin my body? (ofcurse not) did it lead to anything bad? (again no), then chances are my body needed it, and i shouldn’t do an extra run to take it away from my body.

  • Your last advice made me cry, because i was struggling with an eating disorder for 4 months and i wish someone would tell me what you said. (Now i’m doing good.) You are very inspirational and very smart. Love your content very much. Keep it up <3

  • Don’t eat sugar milk or dairy. Eat cruciferous vegetables, healthy fats, healthy citrus, avoid processed food and gluten. 137.00 for her program smh

  • Can you also do a video on how to deal or overcome the psychological aspects of setbacks like sprained, pulled muscles injuries ect. What to do, how to recover and the mental aspect.

  • Great video Kara!!! Thank you so much for always making your videos so informative!!! Huge hugs �� and keep ‘em coming girl!!! �� ��

  • Have you struggled with eating disorders? Your very knowledgeable about the thought patterns so I’m just curious if this is something you have dealt with?

  • That’s exactly what I do nowadays..I literally just ate way too many fried food but I was like “whatever..it was actually so good and I don’t blame myself for eating that much..let’s rest now and I’ll continue eating well and working out” bottom line is that it’s okay to mess up sometimes but I’ll always continue making healthy choices ❤️

  • Ever since I was a kid I’d reach for food for comfort. Stress eat. Now that I am older I realise how unhealthy it is. Have you ever experienced this, and/or do you have any tips for this?

  • I love this!! Thank you for not encouraging a poor relationship with food like you see so often in fitness and healthy eating instagrammers/youtubers/bloggers.

  • Thank you for the great video. I’m slowly changing my eating to be able nutrition and not boredum. It’s always great to have someone just lay it put for you and make you doing a bit of self reflection.

  • I struggle with this all day and I feel like I have started my fitness journey over so many times because of my emotional attachment to food. Thank you so much for the tips!:)

  • Yes yes yes!!! PLEASE MAKE THAT VIDEO!!!! I am really struggling right now with my relationship with food. I’ve never had an issue before this year. I guess you could call it eating intuitively, but I just didn’t think much about what i ate. Because of that I probably had too much junk food, and would sometimes not eat at all one day and i was always a little pudgier than I wanted. So this year i started making little changes and seeing my body become what I’d always wanted. I was sticking to macros that I’d calculated from info online and lifting a few times a week. I felt great! For about 6 months… then all of a sudden, I started having these crazy cravings. After the first time i gave in, I binged like crazy. And then I started binging a few times a week! I feel so out of control! I’ve gained back about 10 pounds and feel like i reversed all the progress i had felt so good about. In total I had lost about 25 lbs, so I’m still 15 lbs down from where i started and noticeably more muscular, so it’s not all lost, but i still feel so disappointed in myself. And why, why why am i having these issues now when i care more than ever about what I’m eating?! When i was eating “bad” food like fries and burgers and ice cream, I would never binge or make myself feel sick, and now I will eat chickpeas until my stomach is so tight I can barely bend over. What is going on?!

  • I’ve been trying to lose weight for awhile and I find I’m at my thinnest when I watch your videos and am being more mindful about what I’m putting into my body. Love you so much!! Thank you for being so inspirational!!!!!!!!!

  • Hey Kara! Thank you for this really helpful video. I noticed one reason i overeat and have a bad relationship with food is because when hungry i feel very sick and nauseous and it’s a lot of pain for me. Do you know what’s wrong with me? Are there hacks to help relieve the pain?

  • You’re an amazing person with such a big heart and beautiful soul. You should have WAY more subscribers. Thank you for always being so open and understanding, and for sharing your knowledge with us. I am currently at the beginning of my fitness journey and I am so glad I came across your channel. Much love. ��

  • Can i just say any time i see you pop up in my notifications i get so damn excited and literally wait untill i can sit down and rake notes because you teach me so much every video

  • I love that last piece of advice! The whole video was a masterpiece with very important info but that last point drove it home! I teared up a little because I thought about my son and my daughter like you’re right I would never starve them or force them to exercise just because they ate something “unhealthy” I’m always telling myself I’m only going to live once I get 1 body 1 life I just need to dial it back on enjoying all the foods I’m a major food lover I cook a lot I make my own breads and sometimes it’s not the best idea to make a ciabatta loaf and sit in the kitchen dipping it in olive oil @12a cause it’s fresh and delicious lol I’ve learned my emotions get the better of me from time to time and when I would have a bad day or my kids wouldn’t sleep all through the night and have a bad day I’d eat the worst stuff possible.

  • Wow this is coming at exactly the right time! I want to give up dieting and counting because I was soo lost in what everyone on YouTube and Instagram was telling me to eat. Now I realized only my body knows what I need. nobody else does.

  • I always feel hungry. I will eat a big plate of veggies with some pasta or rice, fruit and yoghurt etc. I never feel like I have had enough, my stomach will still cramp and grumble.

    Any tips??
    Xx

  • I still struggle with tracking, if I track I can’t see the numbers go above 900kcal, it just bugs me. The same with weighing myself, I stopped because I noticed I had started weighing myself everyday and seeing the numbers go down made me feel really good. Thanks for this video, made me rethink some things:)

  • Ah I needed this, the past couple of weeks, I’ve had such a bad relationship with food and beating myself up for eating certain things. Thank you for this video! ❤️

  • The tip at the end about treating yourself/your body like you would a friend is brilliant and definitely something I will be implementing. One of the things that helped me most with my disordered eating habits is being open about them with friends.

  • Girl, thank you! I’m all for intuitive eating but that in itself seems to come with its own set of rules lately, which I think defeats the whole purpose. I loved your comment that you can still have a good relationship with food and be counting calories/macros. Thanks for all you do ��

  • I do not have an eating disorder but I was depressed for a very long time and I lost 20 pounds. I’ve never been restricting with what I’ve eaten before that depressive episode but due to me not eating when I eat now I can’t really eat enough. It has been over a year and I still can’t put my weight back on. I don’t know how to “stretch” my stomach so I can eat enough to actually get back to who I used to be.

  • yup, my attitude used to be ” well the day is ruined now, i might as well eat junk food the rest of the day and start over tomorrow” lol self sabotage

  • Really enjoy your balance of both fun and knowledgeable content. In addition, with your personal experience, you’re real. You’re not fake Kara. And I love that about you.
    Stay real homegirl ❤️

  • Great final advice! I love your videos, they always motivate me to do better and try harder.
    I don’t think I ever really had a good relationship with food. I restrict myself too much and then lash out. It’s like a roller-coaster ride.
    What I noticed is when I’m actually hungry but can’t eat for like an hour or so (for wathever reason) I stop feeling hungry and just feel really tired and kind of sick. I think I kind of trained myself to repress the feeling of hunger (probably because I associate eating with negative emotions). So now I struggle to know when I’m really hungry. Do you have any tips for that?

    Thank you for your videos!

  • I’ve been following you since the early days of your channel, and I have to say that I love your dietician talks because they really do fill an empty niche in the female fitness community. There aren’t many women on YouTube who are legit professionals who understand nutrition + who do more than Instagram modelling. Jeff Nippard had a slow start gaining followers but his scientific approach has paid off…could defo see you offering something similar for women. Don’t get me wrong I still love people’s booty videos and hauls, but your knowledge and experience are �� Keep up the good work! Much love xxx

  • One meal a day 23 hour faster since last month here, I’m 1.5 months in and feeling good for it it really does make you think of food differently and appreciate it, as opposed to mindlessly consuming as a result of habit

  • Can you do a video about how you eat as a celiac? One of my friends is one and it would be cool to learn about how you go about it ☺️

  • just wondering is the seed rotation diet recommended for all adult women, or for women over 40 or 45 when the 2 hormones start to imbalance?

  • In all kindness must admit. I fast forwarded this quite a bit because it took a while for you both to get to the point can you continue but with more actual points x

  • Is anyone else having trouble when putting their name/email (required) from the above link, to get the info on Magdalena’s Estrogen Reset Program? It is not working for me, and I have tried several times. I’ll keep trying…

When you were talking about the spaghetti and meatballs being a source of carbs and protein I was nodding along like “yeah!” and I totally realized it was watching your channel that has really made me think that way! When I try to eat intuitively, I often tend to under eat throughout the day and then binge at night because I’m so dang hungry. I never realized that was why until I started tracking calories. So tracking calories will help me realize my breakfast or lunch was way too low cal and I need to eat more at that meal! Anyway, I’m excited for part two of this video!

  • yup, my attitude used to be ” well the day is ruined now, i might as well eat junk food the rest of the day and start over tomorrow” lol self sabotage

  • Let’s show Marissa lots and lots of our love and support as her subscribers and fans and help boost her subscriber count higher i want to help this channel grow with enough positivity from my message and encouragement from the subs

  • This is super helpful. I dont have the greatest relationship with food. I’ll use these tips in times when food and I arent getting along.

  • Marissa… dude iv been ONLY watching other fitness you tubers… AND. THEN…. I found you and you have completely changed me whole perspective on so many things and my goals went from “looking like Heidi sommers” to “I want to be healthy and have energy and live a LONG happy life” you’re amazing

  • Really enjoy your balance of both fun and knowledgeable content. In addition, with your personal experience, you’re real. You’re not fake Kara. And I love that about you.
    Stay real homegirl ❤️

  • Thank you so much for all you do to try to help us! I’ve gotten to the point that I can wait for each new video. I love your relationship with your mom!

  • Can i just say any time i see you pop up in my notifications i get so damn excited and literally wait untill i can sit down and rake notes because you teach me so much every video

  • Thank you for this video. Like you mentioned in the beginning, I feel like I can’t eat if I don’t workout or at least eat in a macro maintenance even though I’m trying to lose weight. And when I do workout I feel like I can eat without felling bad about eating. Also, I feel like I can’t eat unless I track everything…..I’m still trying to work on my relationship….it’s not easy but I’m taking it day by day….

  • I also struggle with justifying the expense of buying the food as well as consuming it particularly if it’s slightly more on pricey and/or tasty

  • I’ve never really commented on a YouTube video before, but.. just wanted to get this out. I’ve been subscribed to you for a little while, and you really do feel like a friend. You’re so genuine and give off so much positive energy, it really is awesome.

    I’ve been on a healthy eating journey for many many years. Losing weight, gaining it back rinse and repeat over and over again. I don’t have a great relationship with food. If I’m bored, I eat, sad I eat, angry I eat.. if it’s there, I eat it. It also doesn’t help I work in a bakery. I am constantly surrounded by food, and not the “good kind.”

    I keep telling myself tomorrow I’ll do better. And the tomorrow’s turn into many tomorrow’s. Anyway. Sorry for the long comment. I just wanted to say thank you for your channel. You inspired me to switch my way of thinking to something else. To just… Try.

  • Can you also do a video on how to deal or overcome the psychological aspects of setbacks like sprained, pulled muscles injuries ect. What to do, how to recover and the mental aspect.

  • Gosh this is such an eye opener!! My husband and I are constantly having those battles with food such as what to eat, when to eat and all of those impacts. My mindset has changed over the years and I think I put way too much of a emphasis on it when I wish I could relax when it comes to eating! Thanks Kara for this awesome talk!

  • So much goodness in this interview! ➡️ Magdalena’s Estrogen Reset Program: http://bit.ly/femest ➡️ Get my FREE Moon Chocolate Recipe: http://bit.ly/femchoc

  • Just think about the mindset of eating for low calories. The whole point of food is to get things, including energy. Low calorie tells me you’re getting off on the high of candy and soda but don’t want to get fat, like a druggie who thinks “just one bump to take the edge off.”

  • Thank you for this video! I needed this. So helpful, I struggle when I leave work to just go straight home to eat and not stop somewhere.

  • Is there any chance you would do a video about following a good diet on a low budget? It would be SO helpful and wildly appreciated!!!

  • Marissa… dude iv been ONLY watching other fitness you tubers… AND. THEN…. I found you and you have completely changed me whole perspective on so many things and my goals went from “looking like Heidi sommers” to “I want to be healthy and have energy and live a LONG happy life” you’re amazing

  • I am just waiting for you to be walking and chatting to the camera and actually pass someone else walking! Where’s all the other walkers?! ��

  • I always feel hungry. I will eat a big plate of veggies with some pasta or rice, fruit and yoghurt etc. I never feel like I have had enough, my stomach will still cramp and grumble.

    Any tips??
    Xx

  • Your last advice made me cry, because i was struggling with an eating disorder for 4 months and i wish someone would tell me what you said. (Now i’m doing good.) You are very inspirational and very smart. Love your content very much. Keep it up <3

  • I’ve been trying to lose weight for awhile and I find I’m at my thinnest when I watch your videos and am being more mindful about what I’m putting into my body. Love you so much!! Thank you for being so inspirational!!!!!!!!!

  • This was a really awesome video and something I definitely needed to hear! my relationship with food recently has made me really prone to binging cycles and while I think i’ve been able to pull myself out of it for good, there are a lot of old habits and behaviors and thoughts that are hard to get rid of, especially using food as a reward and eating “bad” food making me want to binge on even more “bad” food and throw all of my progress out of the window. On a side note, I was wondering if you’d ever consider sharing recipes you have for lower-carb meals? I’m trying to experiment with different macro values because i’ve always eaten pretty high carb and wanna see how i feel on other proportions. thanks and have a really awesome day! <3

  • one time at camp i wasn’t very hungry but our supper was steak and all that so i ate supper ate snacks all night i literally ate so much that i threw up later that night, in the morning i ate a giant muffin and giant peach, wasn’t very hungry again but, ever since i bought the muffins and peaches for camp i couldn’t wait to eat them, not sure if i have a good relationship with food or not but im trying lmao

  • My stepdaughter has the best, most innocent relationship with food. It cracks me up sometimes. She loves candy and cookies and goodies like any other 6 year old, but she will ask me if something is healthy for her cause she genuinely wants to know. She asked tonight if the green beans we ate with dinner were good for her, and when I said yes she said “well then I love them, cause they’re healthy. And I love healthy stuff”. I loved that so much, and my thought was if only I could see food the way my daughter does I would feel so much better about it. ��

  • Lovely Video! Apologies for chiming in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you heard about Chireetler Stubborn Fat Rule (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a good one of a kind guide for discovering what to eat to balance hormones and eliminating trouble fat spots minus the headache. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my work buddy after many years got great results with it.

  • Hey Kara! Thank you for this really helpful video. I noticed one reason i overeat and have a bad relationship with food is because when hungry i feel very sick and nauseous and it’s a lot of pain for me. Do you know what’s wrong with me? Are there hacks to help relieve the pain?

  • I’m so happy you’ve made this video! I watched the video about how to know if you have a good relationship with food but had no idea how to improve it! Thanks for the tools ��

  • Let’s show Marissa lots and lots of our love and support as her subscribers and fans and help boost her subscriber count higher i want to help this channel grow with enough positivity from my message and encouragement from the subs

  • Wow this is coming at exactly the right time! I want to give up dieting and counting because I was soo lost in what everyone on YouTube and Instagram was telling me to eat. Now I realized only my body knows what I need. nobody else does.

  • This is awesome! Thank you for going over this. I struggle with PCOS. So i am estrogen dominant. It has also caused estrogen related seizures. So definitely not something to mess around with.

  • Honestly Kara, have you thought about having your own podcast? Because these videos have valuable content and I would love to bring your voice along with me when I go out for a run:-)

  • My relationship with food is phucked up as hell.
    Being really restrictive, then binge eating… then starving myself as punishment for eating. I still didn’t lose weight. Even did keto… only lost 2 pounds in two months.

    My mental state was preventing me from losing weight.

    When I decided that I didn’t care and I was going to build my relationship with food, I finally lost weight.
    Your past videos have helped me change my mental health along with ‘clean and delicious’ channel. She has a series about intuitive eating.
    Thank you for this Kara for this! ����

  • this was very helpful!! thank you! as someone that is going through anorexia recovery, it is always hard to “treat” myself with something i like, if i been thinking about certain food for the whole week, i go against my mindset and eat it, and i start asking myself these questions: why did it make me angry?(bcz i ate it) why did i have it?(bcz im craving it and im hungry) did it ruin my body? (ofcurse not) did it lead to anything bad? (again no), then chances are my body needed it, and i shouldn’t do an extra run to take it away from my body.

  • Yes yes yes! You’re always right there with the things I need to hear. This was so good, thank you!! And I agree with others podcasts please ❤️

  • today was the biggest milestone in my eating disorder recovery where I willingly increased my calories to account for the exercise I did this weekend. Sounds tiny to everyone else I’m sure, but for where I’m at in my journey (recently out of hospital) it’s the first step to using food as fuel, rather than as fat. the anorexic brain jumps right from “this food has bad fat” to “I am bad fat” and by faking it until I make it, I am loving learning about all of the different dialogues and connections I can make between my food and my body and all the different ways it can nourish my mind and my body and my soul and my culture <3 thank you for such a wonderful video

  • One lifetime later I am kind of beginning to feel tired of the constant guilt that comes after literary every bite I swallow… Kind of…not yet at the stage of “I want to fix my relationship with food!” (if I ever get there), just at sort of the beginning where I maybe acknowledge that I guess I’m kind of tired of being like this. Baby steps!:D Thank you for the video!

  • This is super helpful. I dont have the greatest relationship with food. I’ll use these tips in times when food and I arent getting along.

  • When you said that we should all strive to do what is best for our us where we are at right now that really resonated with me. It also meant so much in your previous video to hear that you had been in a season of life were you were only working out twice a week or so. To know that there is so much more than fitness and that our healthy selves will look different and have different routines in different seasons is such an important reminder, one I know I often need. So thank you for your transparency and truth. <3

  • This was exactly what I needed to hearI haven’t felt like myself this past week, therefore haven’t been going to the gym and have been eating garbage. I just reached a milestone of being able to bench press 70 lbs and was thinking today how I’m ruining all my hard work. Between last night and today, I even ate almost an entire bag of cookies! You reminded me that one rough week isn’t the end of the world and that I need to treat myself like I would a friend. Thank you, Marissa!

  • Hi mommy!!
    I’m not proud to say this but it’s part of life. During the last 3 years I have had several stages to discover the food that adapts to my body.
    *I have already exercised, so now I can eat a cookie (the whole package is eaten). I ate salad so now I can order dessert. I have eaten many donuts at breakfast, I ruined my day, so I better finish the popcorn and ice cream once.
    *No, I should not eat pizza, I should not eat cookies, I should not eat donuts… I even got to the point of not eating anything and counting all the calories.
    *The fruit is healthy, the oatmeal is healthy, the salad is healthy, the tuna is healthy, the chicken breast is healthy, so I can eat as much as I want, as long as it is healthy.
    But why am I still fat if I eat healthy?
    … Recently I started using an application to count the macros, and I realized that although I am healthy, I tend to eat a lot. That has helped me lose those extra kilos I did not want to leave.
    And to tell the truth, when I eat without counting the portions, I still have that tendency to overeat.
    And yes! I am an emotional eater!! So, i know the struggle…:(

  • Needed to hear this. My husband has been deployed for two months and I was doing well until a few weeks ago. I fell off my consistent workouts and began rewarding those bad emotions with bad food. Thanks for your tips

  • Ah I needed this, the past couple of weeks, I’ve had such a bad relationship with food and beating myself up for eating certain things. Thank you for this video! ❤️

  • Can you do a video about how you eat as a celiac? One of my friends is one and it would be cool to learn about how you go about it ☺️

  • If I eat logically then I reach my goal. If I eat emotionally including celebrations holidays,Then I’m slightly side track. By five ish pounds Hmm living life to blame lol. Oh yah five birthdays in one month. Bring me the cake I says!

  • My stepdaughter has the best, most innocent relationship with food. It cracks me up sometimes.

I loved that so much, and my thought was if only I could see food the way my daughter does I would feel so much better about it. ��

  • I have a different kind of bad relationship with food. I know the healthy things, I don’t punish myself for eating unhealthy, but I have no healthy habits either. I don’t restrict or have any rules. I just eat a lot of junk. I would like to eat better, but in the moment I don’t want to so I usually don’t. So bad relationship with food, slowly working on it…

  • I’m so happy you’ve made this video! I watched the video about how to know if you have a good relationship with food but had no idea how to improve it! Thanks for the tools ��

  • I’ve never really commented on a YouTube video before, but.. just wanted to get this out. I’ve been subscribed to you for a little while, and you really do feel like a friend. You’re so genuine and give off so much positive energy, it really is awesome.

  • I think my relationship with food is bad, but ever since I started watching your videos and the other fitness channels you suggested in your starter kit I started to notice my bad relationship with food. Now can’t wait for that video on how to repair the relationship.

  • today was the biggest milestone in my eating disorder recovery where I willingly increased my calories to account for the exercise I did this weekend.

  • I love you so much. I’m a runner and it’s hard when you don’t look like everyone else on the starting line and I always compare myself, but you help me realize the being healthy is what’s important most

  • one time at camp i wasn’t very hungry but our supper was steak and all that so i ate supper ate snacks all night i literally ate so much that i threw up later that night, in the morning i ate a giant muffin and giant peach, wasn’t very hungry again but, ever since i bought the muffins and peaches for camp i couldn’t wait to eat them, not sure if i have a good relationship with food or not but im trying lmao

  • I’m working on improving my relationship with food. This video is so good. You explain so many things I couldn’t put into words myself

  • It took me a while to get less obsessive with food, either eating too little or too much.
    I stopped rewarding myself with food and using food as a pick me up.

    I treat food the way I do alcohol… That cheat food is when I’m hungry and I fancy it, to celebrate a good moment. Rather to make me feel better or if I’m bored. So if I’m at a party, or a birthday, or a holiday… Then I eat what I want.
    But I don’t beat myself up.

  • A lot of good advice and good thoughts! In regards to a conversation you had with another person in the comments, about how some people eat low calories in the form of junk food.
    I was one time watching an episode of “My 600 lbs life” I think it’s called, and the doctor said the person was malnourished. I couldn’t understand how that could possibly be, when they were eating like 8000 or 10 000 calories a day. But they were getting all those calories out of junk food, so no nutrients, no vitamins, nothing. A ton of calories and no nutrients, like drinking coke all day. It was eye-opening for me, since I was having pretty much the same diet, except it was a normal amount of calories. It was one of the things that made me change my eating habits.
    Also, your mom is so subdued compared to you! ��

  • One lifetime later I am kind of beginning to feel tired of the constant guilt that comes after literary every bite I swallow… Kind of…not yet at the stage of “I want to fix my relationship with food!” (if I ever get there), just at sort of the beginning where I maybe acknowledge that I guess I’m kind of tired of being like this. Baby steps!:D Thank you for the video!

  • Thank you for making and posting this video. This past week has been rough on me. I’m overweight because of a medical condition and I was feeling hopeless and worthless. This has helped me feel so much better!:)

  • Have you struggled with eating disorders? Your very knowledgeable about the thought patterns so I’m just curious if this is something you have dealt with?

  • Honestly Kara, have you thought about having your own podcast? Because these videos have valuable content and I would love to bring your voice along with me when I go out for a run:-)

  • Great video Kara!!! Thank you so much for always making your videos so informative!!! Huge hugs �� and keep ‘em coming girl!!! �� ��

  • I had a vegan/gluten free cauliflower crust Hawaiian pizza with vegan cheese the other day, so amazing!! Canada has a pizza chain called “Pizza Pizza” and they revamped their menu with healthier options!! I don’t normally eat pizza or anything junky, but when I do I definitely don’t feel guilty! =)

  • Your mom seems like your best friend. That’s awesome!:) does your mom and/or family eat similar to you? as in healthy and whole?:)

  • Thank you for the great video. I’m slowly changing my eating to be able nutrition and not boredum. It’s always great to have someone just lay it put for you and make you doing a bit of self reflection.

  • I ACCIDENTALLY DELETED MY COMMENT SO I’M GONNA HAVE TO REWORD WHAT I HAD HERE i really needed this bc for a little bit after your sugar addiction video, i commented about how much i saw sugar differently by seeing treats as actual treats instead of any type of candy/sweet was something i should eat. as in, eating these kinds of foods mindfully. but as i’ve gotten closer to my goal weight (like literally, seven pounds….. it feels so close), i’ve begun to binge even more bc events or parties would happen and i wouldn’t know how to deal with the food and i would just go wild on the spread of food. couple this with how i kept reading about how much protein i should eat, what foods were super duper detrimental to my health, and how intermittent fasting could work better w/ certain foods, i was feeling severely restricted. so now my relationship to food is really shot. i’ve increased my fasting window and stopped counting calories too bc i think it wasn’t serving me at all. and now i’m trying to practice eating more whole foods with more color on my plate and reducing my sugar intake (but not cutting it out completely… yet(?)) and i think this video as well as your next one on this topic will help me steer towards the right path! your videos are very inspirational, really bc your food looks so delicious and it is definitely great fuel!

  • Needed to hear this. My husband has been deployed for two months and I was doing well until a few weeks ago. I fell off my consistent workouts and began rewarding those bad emotions with bad food. Thanks for your tips

You reminded me that one rough week isn’t the end of the world and that I need to treat myself like I would a friend. Thank you, Marissa!

  • This video was just what I needed as I am battling an unhealthy relationship with food but I am working really hard to change that. When are you getting your new glasses, I am very curious to see which glasses you chose ��

  • Great video! I wonder if you could talk more about why you take creatine and also I would be curious to hear about your motivation for being so strong/muscular and what your eventual goals are in that realm…

  • I’m young, (11 years old, 5”4, and 112 pounds) I hate my look, and I am trying to loose weight. But the problem is is that I like exercises but I am way way to self conscious to exercise in public and I don’t have anywhere to go. Tips? I’m really struggling

  • I also struggle with justifying the expense of buying the food as well as consuming it particularly if it’s slightly more on pricey and/or tasty

  • I got out of an eating disorder faculty last week and right now for me a healthy relationship with food is three meals and two snacks at structured times throughout the day, and within those the only restriction is “if I show this plate to someone else, would they think it looked like a normal meal/ snack” e.g. no bowls of zero calorie jell-o for dinner. I’m looking forward to becoming more confident with this regime so that i can regain my hunger cues and hopefully eventually end up at a place where I can really appreciate what individual foods do for my body. For now though, I’m just proud that I’ve managed to start working out all the good things food in general does for my body!

  • You need so many more views… this is TRUTH. I feel like no one talks about this stuff and it needs to be addressed way more often. Thank you so much for putting this out here.

  • You are so right about justifying food. I find myself doing that all the time. Like “well, I barely ate today so it’s okay that I ate a ton of food at dinner and now I feel full” instead just eat or don’t eat and leave it be. I’m going to be more conscious about that because it just causes tension with your relationship to food

  • Thank you for this video. Like you mentioned in the beginning, I feel like I can’t eat if I don’t workout or at least eat in a macro maintenance even though I’m trying to lose weight. And when I do workout I feel like I can eat without felling bad about eating. Also, I feel like I can’t eat unless I track everything…..I’m still trying to work on my relationship….it’s not easy but I’m taking it day by day….

  • Thank you so much for all you do to try to help us! I’ve gotten to the point that I can wait for each new video. I love your relationship with your mom!

  • I think I’ve always had a bad relationship with food. When I got depressed I went from overeating to not eating at all over and over. Currently the depression is worse and I’m constantly having thoughts about not eating anything as a punishment, or just as a way for others to see a physical wrong with me and not a mental one, as that’s very hard for many people to understand. With all that said, I just had a healthy breakfast and planning to cook my own dinner today instead of eating out or just having cookies. �� By the way, that mug is awesome!

  • Thank you so much for making this video! It really helped me reflect more upon my relationship with food, especially in regards to the way that I eat.
    Do you have any tips on how to increase calories, I am using a calorie tracker and I am only just hitting 1200 a day.:/ Thank you:D!!! Keep up your great content

  • Yes yes yes! You’re always right there with the things I need to hear. This was so good, thank you!! And I agree with others podcasts please ❤️

  • thank you for this video <3 you are just my favorite (seriously stopped studying for my exam because i needed marisa time ) i hope to one day gain a healthy relationship with food. Unfortantly i have very little hope for that. Ive had my battles with almost every eating disorder since i was 19 and im 28 now. I sometimes lose hope that i will never gain that healthy relationship again but its something i really hope i will get back, i miss those moments when i was young and didnt over think something as small as food i ate when i was hungry and didnt when i wasnt. Ive battled anorexia, bulimia, beinge eating. right now its been orthorexia and i just wish it could all stop. The thoughts in my head is something i wouldnt wish upon my biggest enemy its such an ugly place. Thank you for spreading your knowledge and i hope young girls watch this and take your advice versus all the crazy instagram fitness models <3 your a real G <3

  • You’re an amazing person with such a big heart and beautiful soul. You should have WAY more subscribers. Thank you for always being so open and understanding, and for sharing your knowledge with us. I am currently at the beginning of my fitness journey and I am so glad I came across your channel. Much love. ��

  • Thanks for the Video! Apologies for the intrusion, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you heard the talk about Chireetler Stubborn Fat Rule (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a smashing exclusive guide for discovering what to eat to balance hormones and eliminating trouble fat spots without the normal expense. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my work buddy at very last got astronomical success with it.

  • I do not have an eating disorder but I was depressed for a very long time and I lost 20 pounds. I’ve never been restricting with what I’ve eaten before that depressive episode but due to me not eating when I eat now I can’t really eat enough. It has been over a year and I still can’t put my weight back on. I don’t know how to “stretch” my stomach so I can eat enough to actually get back to who I used to be.

  • Your videos and personality are healing to me in alot of ways. Your kindness and positivity are soothing after a day spent around less than kind people at school. And the education I get from your content teaches me how to live a healthier lifestyle, and keep a healthy mindset while doing so. I thank you for both from the bottom of my heart, and I wish you all of the success in your endeavours.

  • I’ve been following you since the early days of your channel, and I have to say that I love your dietician talks because they really do fill an empty niche in the female fitness community. There aren’t many women on YouTube who are legit professionals who understand nutrition + who do more than Instagram modelling. Jeff Nippard had a slow start gaining followers but his scientific approach has paid off…could defo see you offering something similar for women. Don’t get me wrong I still love people’s booty videos and hauls, but your knowledge and experience are �� Keep up the good work! Much love xxx

  • I do track, because I try to eat borderline keto (I’m not a huge meat eater so I have veggie days when my carbs go up a bit) but let’s say if we go and have burgers, I will get salad in place of the bun but won’t torture myself for all the delicious sugary sauces and enjoy every bite. I sometimes schedule my fast days right after the ones when I know I’ll be eating less healthy than usual but if I would fast anyway is that bad? Or actually relationship aside what is better for the metabolism? If I have like 2 “normal” days after that burger/junk/whatever and then fast for 24-30h or otherwise right after that? Does it make any difference? I normally do such fast once 8-10 days depending on my schedule.

  • I have CFS/ME and POTS and the way things are going I don’t think I’m ever going to be able to work out again. I’m trying to do super gentle yoga but even living leaves me in alot of pain in all of my joints.

    Any tips for seeing food as fuel when you feel like you have nothing to fuel? it seems hard to accept my need for food if I cant even go for a walk let alone work out for real.

    I’ve been working on this but no one ever teaches you how to have a good relationship with food, especially not a family of obese people…

  • Great final advice! I love your videos, they always motivate me to do better and try harder.
    I don’t think I ever really had a good relationship with food. I restrict myself too much and then lash out. It’s like a roller-coaster ride.
    What I noticed is when I’m actually hungry but can’t eat for like an hour or so (for wathever reason) I stop feeling hungry and just feel really tired and kind of sick. I think I kind of trained myself to repress the feeling of hunger (probably because I associate eating with negative emotions). So now I struggle to know when I’m really hungry. Do you have any tips for that?

    Thank you for your videos!

  • Days where I’ve eaten extra the previous day I use to go a bit harder in the gym a’la… Like a bulking day? If that makes sense. I’ve been maintaining weight for the most part so I’m not too concerned about the day where I over indulge a bit. That said, I’ve not always felt this way, but after living life this way for nearly a decade you learn to.

    Missed the past 2-3 vids �� #newjobnotimelife

  • I love love LOVE ur vidoes I binge watched like 10 of them yesterday lol!!! this is a really great topic to discuss thank you! Can you make a work out routine with no weights for people that aren’t able to access the gym? ��

  • I still struggle with tracking, if I track I can’t see the numbers go above 900kcal, it just bugs me. The same with weighing myself, I stopped because I noticed I had started weighing myself everyday and seeing the numbers go down made me feel really good. Thanks for this video, made me rethink some things:)

  • It’s really hard to stop seeing food as a bad thing when you have been overweight most of your life like me. I’m still struggling with losing weight even tho I’m down like 40 pounds and I look like a “normal” person. I hate feeling fat and with all the info around saying that carbs and sugar are the devil what else can you do but think that they’re actually terrible so you end up binging on “bad food” sometimes and try to cut the calories just to work with it. I hate it because I love food but that’s how it goes. Nice video

  • I haven’t even finished watching the video and I completely 100% agree with your statement on how we react to the food we’ve eaten. Just last night I had a moment where.. idk, I had a revelation of exactly what you had said here! Thank you for putting it a lot more eloquently than I ever could!!
