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 ...

A Lack of Information is Fattening

“I am lazy, stupid and fat!”  A cruel statement, right? But this is what my patient who is recovering from Bulimarexia hears in her head every day, all day long. The reality is that she is a hard worker, very smart and a normal weight after years of struggling with an eating disorder. But her fear of suddenly or somehow becoming “fat” is so intense that it may take another couple of years for this voice in her head to go away, and it may never go away completely. Sound crazy? It isn’t unusual for people to think this way.  We are afraid of being obese as a culture. The sight of an obese person strikes fear in the hearts of ...
Preparation

#MotivationMonday Stage 3- Preparation

Here we are in the third week of my #MotivationMonday series on Change. If you looked for me last week, but didn’t find me, it’s because I was honoring Labor Day. Everyone deserves a day of rest! Last time we met, we were talking about the contemplation stage of change. You know where you want to be with the change you are seeking, but you aren’t quite ready to go. Preparation is the third stage of change. Most people at this stage are planning to take action within the month, and they are making adjustments before they begin. What does this look like? Let’s go back to my example of a patient who binges at 4 p.m. everyday on candy. ...

Change- A Seven Week #MotivationMonday series

This week I’m starting a seven week #MotivationMonday series on Change. If you’ve ever tried to change a behavior, then you will understand just how difficult change can be. But I’d also guess that you would say that change was the best thing you ever did for yourself. Change can be the ultimate act of self love. There are six stages in the process of change. Does that surprise you? My patients find it reassuring to discover that change does not happen overnight. I don’t expect them to wake up the following day and be onboard with everything I ask of them. Often, my first contact with a patient is when they have really hit rock bottom. But that’s when the seeds of ...

Eating Disorders Among Female Baby Boomers May be a Function of Food Pollution

Growing old is not easy in any culture, but it is particularly difficult for middle-aged women in the United States. Americans obsess about thinness and worship youthfulness. Joan Rivers’ tragic death  last month was was a good example of the extremes to which women in American society will go in order to maintain these unrealistic ideals. Ms. Rivers is not alone. Remaining young and fit is getting harder all the time because of the food we eat. U.S. food is polluted with ingredients that attack the immune system, accelerate the aging process and drive obesity. Aging is scary enough without a rapid decline in one’s health and an ever-expanding waistline. And that is exactly what Baby Boomers are experiencing today. ...
Body Dysmorphic Disorder treatment

Body Dysmorphia and Anorexia

Systems theory tells us that in order to solve a problem we have to use the right set of assumptions. Further, it tells us that if we use the wrong assumptions, the problem will continue to get worse. Suffice it to say, the underlying assumptions of those suffering with eating disorders are incorrect. One good example is the role that body dysmorphia plays in driving disordered eating – Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is not the same thing. I should point out that not all individuals that suffer from Anorexia suffer from body dysmorphia, but many do. The underlying assumptions of those Anorexics suffering from body dysmorphia include: Imagined defects in appearance. “My thighs are fat.” Or  “My belly sticks out ...
