#94: Exercise Resistance, Consciousness Studies and Overeating with Francie White (part 2)

The Eating Disorder Trap Podcast

May 16 2022 • 26 mins

Francie White infuses philosophies of consciousness, creativity, mythology, archetypal psychology into her four decade history treating all types of eating, exercise and body image problems. She has written and taught extensively on the 5 types of overeating and her naming and treatment of exercise resistance syndrome. Although she is retired from her masters level dietitian nutritionist practice, where she owned day treatment centers, she recently completed her PhD in philosophy. Her newest work brings recent discoveries in neuroscience, consciousness and cosmology in search of a new paradigm of meaning, awe and wonder into daily life. She uses the new science discoveries about consciousness to expand theories on eating disorder recovery to include a wider lens through which to view the psyche.

We discuss topics including:

  • What are consciousness studies?
  • Consciousness studies, eating disorders and body image
  • What is “overeating”? And the five types of overeating
  • A person needs to be at a certain place in their recovery to discuss consciousness studies
