Errors of Thinking- #8 Mind Reading

  Mind Reading can happen in two forms.  The first form assumes that someone else should know what you are thinking.  This can happen naturally in relationships.  After all, the more time we spend with someone, the more likely we are to know how they feel about something. We are better able to read their non verbal cues and often recognize needs before they are communicated.  But you can run into trouble when you start expecting the person to act or do something without ever communicating that need. Imagine you are coming home from a really long day.  You still have to cook dinner for everyone, you still have to deal with the dishes and getting everyone to bed. After dinner ...

Is Residential “Treatment” Really Treatment?

I have been saying publicly that residential treatment centers for eating disorders don’t work. Behind the scenes, I have lamented the atrocities my patients have undergone while in residential treatment. Given that this problem has finally been exposed, I would like to share with you some of the experiences my patients have shared with me, as well as my own experience with this exploitive form of “treatment.” Let’s start with the patient that was effectively incarcerated in a residential treatment center for nearly a year. She entered the center at 90 pounds and eleven months later, and only after a court order, she escaped weighing 180 pounds. She described the state of her body at that point as consisting primarily ...

It’s Pi Day (3.14)! Clean Pizza Tutorial!

It’s Pi Day (3.14) and right now the internet is blowing up with photos of pies and pie recipes. Most people who know me, know that I am not a baker. I make pies once a year.  Therefore, I will not be discussing sweet pies today. However, I am all about discussing PIZZA PIE! (You’re shocked, aren’t you?) Here’s the question I am asked every week by new patients: “Dr. Norton, does eating clean mean giving up pizza?” (Wait for it..) No! You can still have your pizza!  (We are going to have to modify it slightly, and I promise you it will taste a thousand times better than any pizza you’ve had before!) One thing that I work really hard ...

Errors of Thinking- #7 Uncritical Acceptance of the Critic

  I’m going to let you in on a little secret, just because someone says you are lazy, doesn’t mean it’s actually true. Even if it’s your mother! Are you shocked? I find that many people suffer from this error of thinking and sadly, it’s often those that are closest to us whose criticisms go unquestioned.  Instead we accept it, and repeat it back to ourselves as if it were true. It’s painful when people who are close to us criticize us. The deeper issue though, is that we define our self worth by what others think of us.  Stop and think about that for a moment. If a person praises us, we think we are worthy. If a person ...
