“Heal the Heart, Change the Mind, Heal the Body.” with guest Angela Lutz
December 17, 2012
Hosted by Mary Woods
According to the National Eating Disorders Assoc., approx. 11 million people are battling an eating disorder in the U.S. Further, almost 41 million women and more than 37 million men were reported obese in 2009-2010, says the CDC. Our guest, Angela Lutz, takes an approach to healthy living that will guide viewers to quit the numbers game. Lutz believes society is obsessed by numbers, rules and strict diet plans, all so we can fit into the accepted body image, size and look. Disorderly eating and a poor self-image are not things that can be remedied with a product off the shelf. Our issues are more than skin deep when unhealthy situations from the past dictate current behaviors. Freedom from numbers can only be found by uncovering and overcoming the root issues that drive beliefs regarding food and body image.
