Down With Depravation – Isabel Foxen Duke Interview – Episode #004

I chat with Isabel Foxen Duke about being down with deprivation. What happens when you diet, restrict and try to control your food? Does long term weight loss really exist? And how do physical and psychological deprivation impact your ability to control your appearance?

Isabel Foxen Duke is the Creator of Stop Fighting Food — a free video training program for women who want to “stop feeling crazy around food.” After years of trying to overcome emotional eating, binge-eating and chronic weight-cycling through “traditional” and alternative approaches, Isabel discovered some radical new ways to get women over their “food issues” once and for all — not just by shifting the mindsets of individuals, but by challenging the dominant diet culture as a whole.
