In this episode, Gregory discusses the links between Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) and adult obesity. He also gives insight into his personal childhood trauma, how it led to his childhood obesity, the coping mechanisms which arose from it, and how he deals with them now. Let’s talk about childhood trauma and obesity! For a great compendium to this episode listen to the Confessions of an Obese Child podcast or the How I Lost Over 100 lbs. series.

In this episode, Gregory goes very introspective and personal by giving a step-by-step explanation of the causes of his childhood obesity and later how the neuroses and self-loathing of his adolescent obesity sabotaged his past, current, and all future relationships.  Growing up obese caused him to create coping mechanisms, like OCD and controlling tendencies, which later doomed future relationships, including the one that just ended in Dec. 2017.

Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
