The battle in our heads between wishing that things weren't so pleasurable, and being terrified that our pleasure from food will be taken away is real. It's challenging to know where to point the finger. Are we weak-willed gluttons or is the food out to get us and life isn't fair? I would suggest that there is probably a little of both (haha), but the reality isn't so sinister. We just need to understand how pleasure is related to pain, and what we actually do have control over. When it comes to having a difficult relationship with food, we have to be on the lookout for our pleasure leaks. This episode simplifies these systems and shows us that we aren't out of control around food, we just haven't quite learned how to work with the systems we have. Find your pleasure leaks, change the way you reward yourself, and watch your relationship with food change along the way. *Shout out the Andrew Huberman of Huberman Labs for making these concepts around dopamine, pleasure, and pain so easy to digest.
