Food Is Not Your Enemy

A Size-Zero Model Trapped in an Overweight Lawyer’s Body

In the Lifetime show “Drop Dead Diva,” a size-zero model, Deb, ends up trapped in the body of an overweight, hard-working (and stylish) lawyer, Jane. While Deb subsisted just fine on celery, Jane craves sandwiches and sweets.

The show explores interesting issues of weight–can you become a size zero just by sheer willpower? It’s not likely. Too many other factors come into play–metabolic rate, attitudes about food developed while growing up, emotional eating, and so much more.

Untangling this web of reasons behind weight gain and loss is part of what I do as a holistic nutrition counselor. If you’d like to learn more about my counseling practice, visit my Web site.
