Nick asked this question in my Facebook group. What psychological tools could we use to avoid relapse into disordered eating? Stay right where you are because psychologist Dr. Connie Stapleton, who specializes in bariatric surgery, is with me today to give you answers.

Hi, I’m registered dietitian nutritionist Dr. Susan Mitchell. You’re listening to the Bariatric Surgery Success podcast episode number 70. Most of my career I’ve worked in some type of media, particularly radio where I did morning drive nutrition spots for over 18 years. That’s what lead me to start podcasting and ultimately to you. I created Bariatric Surgery Success to provide you with life-changing information based on science along with simple strategies and tools to help you be successful in your transformation and your entire journey. So happy you’ve connected with me. You’re in the right place and I’m glad you’re listening.

She has vast experience in the field of bariatrics and shares practical skills for improving your post op relationships with food, other people and most importantly your relationship with yourself. She teaches you better ways to deal with life’s stuff.

Welcome back to the podcast, Dr. Connie! What are you working on in Atlanta?

You heard the question at the beginning from Nick. He wants to know what psychological tools could we use to avoid relapse into disordered eating? From many years of practice, I understand and appreciate the tight interface between my work as a dietitian and yours as a psychologist. Our work goes hand in hand. You can have a fabulous diet but emotions can derail your best efforts. Talk a little about psychology and then start with some of the top tools you use and suggest to avoid relapse into disordered eating.

Listen to the podcast for the 20 minute discussion.

If you have more questions you want Dr. Connie to answer the next time she’s here, let me know. You can messenger me thru Facebook or reply to one of my newsletters. I read every email that comes in. Take care of you. You're worth it.
