Episode 85: The Danger of Comparing Yourself to Others in Hypothalamic Amenorrhea or Eating Disorder Recovery
How often do you find yourself comparing what you eat, how much and what kind of exercise you do, and what your body looks like to others?
This can be an incredibly common experience for those working on recovering from disordered eating, and eating disorder or hypothalamic amenorrhea.
Comparison often leads to feelings of jealousy, guilt, and being “not good enough” and can make it difficult to honour what your body needs to heal.
In this episode of Holistic Health Radio I discuss:
- Why comparing food choices or amount to others can be dangerous
- The scientific reason behind WHY we often compare what we eat to others in recovery
- How to stop feeling guilty about needing to eat more than others
- The assumptions we make when we compare our exercise routine to others
- How comparison invalidates our own unique experience of recovery
- Subtle ways in which you compare to others you may not even be aware of
- My number one tip for getting yourself OUT of the comparison game for good
