Karly Randolph Pitman on Sugar Cravings, Eating Disorders, and How to Avoid Cookies in the Conference Room

Karly Randolph Pitman

Today’s show is with Karly Randolph Pitman, an inspired woman teaches others how to heal the emotional roots of food stuff – sugar addiction, binge eating, and overeating – through unconditional self love.

Karly is the author of several books and programs on gentle healing, including Overcoming Sugar Addiction,  The 30 Day Lift, Heal Overeating: Untangled, and Heal Your Body Image. Karly’s work has appeared on Yahoo!, MSN, ABC, The Huffington Post, and in two films, The Inner Weigh, and Sugar Addiction.

Karly struggled with bulimia, binge eating, sugar addiction, emotional eating, body hatred, and weight obsession for over 20 years. A speaker, coach, and workshop leader, her passion is practicing, teaching, living and spreading the message of unconditional love. Karly lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and four children.

In today’s show, Karly and I discuss:

  • What to do when you encounter a cookie in the conference room after a long, hard day of work
  • How to confront and diffuse rabid sugar cravings
  • How to come to terms with a history of eating disorders and body image issues
  • The “no willpower” way to build impulse control

Here’s the show.

  1. Thanks so much for having Karly as a guest. It was brave of you to go off the straight and narrow of guests who talk about Paleo food, Paleo exercise, and turning off lights after dark to address the emotional dysfunctions that drive some of us to seek personal purity/perfection through Paleo.

    Ms. Pitman’s journey and eloquence really resonated with me, and I’ve listened to this podcast twice now. At it’s core, it seems like she’s advocating the Vipassana Bhuddist practice of self-metta, or in therepeutic language, self-acceptance/self-love. The core of this practice, as Ms. Pitman elaborates so well on, is the idea that one is worthy of compassion and doing things that are good for oneself (like a Paleo lifestyle) on that basis alone. From that stance, any harshness directed at yourself doesn’t make sense, either as a motivator or a penalty; you can’t hate yourself into loving yourself.

    Self-metta should be a given for all of us, but it’s clearly something many people didn’t get as a gift from their parents/caretakers while growing up. Thanks to Ms. Pitman (and her teachers) for showing us all a path to get there.

  2. I just listened to this wonderful podcast / lady, and I will listen to it again, and again. This helped me tremendously, and I will share it with others who can use these words of wisdom. Thanks Karly and thank you Abel.
