Default IE - Quotes and Motivation

In reading books I've often come to aha moments and want to share some of the words that illuminate my path and motivate me! Please add your own words of intuitive eating wisdom!

"Consuming more than you are hungry for interferes with the pleasure of eating." - Overcoming Overeating

“Many people become compulsive eaters because they respond to the dictates of the culture and start dieting. Others begin to eat compulsively when they are unable to master a new stage in development or when they are in considerable conflict.” Overcoming Overeating

"Controlling your eating and losing weight will never resolve your need to calm yourself with food." Overcoming Overeating

“Eating food that I enjoy is not a character flaw, it’s a goal.” - Me

"The time to take a deep breath is when you don’t have time for it." - a blog I can't remember sorry

"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth
