I recently came across a great book called Intuitive Eating and it reminded me a lot about TMS in it's approach to eating. I've never had a diagnosable eating disorder but I realized how often I cause myself inner tension with the way I talk to myself about food, "I can't eat that. I'll get fat." "My stomach sticks out too much" " I might as well eat the whole box of cookies since I already ate 2." etc. The book states how this type of negative and perfectionistic thinking hurts you. It also talks about eating beyond fullness in an effort to avoid emotions. I never realized how much I feared feeling hungry until I read this book. It felt like the book gave me permission to be nicer to myself when it comes to what I eat, how I feel physically, and what I look like. In my efforts to cure my TMS I used to be gluten free, dairy free, and sugar free. With a diet like that I never became pain free and I realize that it's because it caused a lot of inner tension that propagates TMS pain. What's everyone else's experience with trying to make peace with food and your body type.
