    the one about honoring your health with gentle nutrition

    the one about honoring your health with gentle nutrition

    In this week’s episode, Hannah and Ali talk all things Intuitive Eating Principle #10: Honor Your Health with Gentle Nutrition. In this week’s episode, Hannah and Ali are joined by nutrition therapist and Registered Dietitian Rachael Hartley. Rachael is a nationally-recognized food and nutrition expert who is passionate about helping others rediscover the joy of eating and foster a healthier relationship with food. Rachael is author of Gentle Nutrition: A Non-Diet Approach to Healthy Eating, which explores the role of nutrition in intuitive eating, so she was the perfect guest to answer all your listener questions about gentle nutrition. Why isn’t it important to eat healthy if it could contribute to reducing morbidity later on? As practitioners, how do we help patients both have freedom with food and make choices that they like and are satisfying, while also stabilizing their blood sugars?  Is it possible to be an intuitive eater and manage a chronic illness at the same time? Do I have to eat fast food or “unhealthy” foods to be an intuitive eater? Is it possible to eat intuitively and just prefer eating healthy foods? We live in a world in which diet culture implies that food and fitness are the only two things that will make or break your health and while they may play a role, in reality, it is a very minimal role compared to environmental factors, socio-economic status, genetic predisposition and many other things that just aren’t behaviors that can be controlled. The research is clear that increasing pleasure, joy, food freedom,and widening the definition of what we consider health while incorporating the ten guiding principles of Intuitive Eating has been proven to improve physical, mental and emotional health sustainably- sounds pretty great right?! Hannah, Ali and Rachael are here in this final episode of the Intuitive Eating series to help guide the listeners to focus on the power of adding food in for health and wellness vs. excluding foods for fear while remembering that health is so much more than the food we eat or the choices we make.

    the one about movement- feel the difference

    the one about movement- feel the difference

    In this week’s episode, Hannah and Ali talk all things Intuitive Eating Principle #9: Movement- Feel the Difference. Exercise can many times go hand in hand with diet culture so when learning how to reconnect to food and start to trust your body, it can get confusing deciding if, when or how to start to exercise. On this week’s episode Hannah and Ali are joined by certified personal trainer Julie Newbry. Julie is passionate about helping her clients use exercise as a form of self-care rather than punishment while focusing on health promoting behaviors rather than weight or aesthetics so she was the perfect person to answer all your listener questions on incorporating movement while recovering from diet culture. As I am exercising more I have been noticing more binge urges and behaviors- do I have to give up exercise that I actually enjoy and which has been helping my mental health infinitely, or do I carry on while consciously ignoring the disordered voices in my head until they go away? Is it wrong to like the changes to my body and attention I am getting as I feel more toned and fit? Is it counterproductive to Intuitive Eating to feel like I need to force myself to exercise? Is it okay to not listen to your intuition when it comes to exercise, especially if it means you’ll give up exercise forever?  Is it okay for exercise to be taking up a lot of my time and energy if it’s helping me get stronger and healthier (vs thinner and more focused on the number of the scale)? Is it okay for exercise to be a huge part of my life and identity? When it comes to exercise, diet culture gives a lot rules and “shoulds” which can make choices feel anything but intuitive. In this week’s episode Hannah, Ali and Julie will help you connect to the ‘why’ behind movement and help you feel the difference when movement is not guided by rigid rules or diet culture B.S.. Oh and spoiler alert- you don’t have a moral obligation to move your body but if you want to, this episode will help you do it in a kind, compassionate and FUN way.

    the one about respecting your body

    the one about respecting your body

    In this week’s episode, Hannah and Ali talk all things Intuitive Eating principle #8: Respect Your Body. To cover this complex topic they are joined by registered dietitian and eating disorders specialist Christyna Johnson. Christyna practices from a person-centered perspective with a social justice lens to help dismantle diet culture which made her the perfect expert to help answer all your questions about respecting your body. How do you overcome the desire to lose weight and be thin, when that’s considered to be more desirable in our society? Can people who fall outside of the thin, white ideal benefit from Intuitive Eating? My body is changing as I work through Intuitive Eating and recovery from binge eating- how do I acknowledge where my body is at and shift away from weight loss as a goal? Is this extra weight I’ve gained as I work on the IE principles really what my body needs, or just a result of overindulging in play food? How do I liberate myself from the negative body image I’ve developed from thirty years of exposure to diet culture? How can I develop a loving attitude towards my body, whatever its shape, when I’ve been conditioned to hate every speck of cellulite I see? Coming to a place of neutral respect for your body is a key aspect in healing from diet culture but it can be complicated especially when the idea of loving your body feels far away. Letting go of the thin ideal can be challenging and the process can feel overwhelming which makes this eighth principle an important step in the journey to find body peace and food freedom. In this episode, Hannah, Ali and Christyna use their expertise to help you take the first small steps towards a place of respecting your body for all the wonderful, incredible things it is able to do.

    the one about coping with your emotions with kindness

    the one about coping with your emotions with kindness

    In this week’s episode, Hannah and Ali talk all things Intuitive Eating principle #7: Cope with Your Emotions with Kindness. Learning to validate and cope with your emotions can be a very important step in the process of Intuitive Eating which is why Mimi Cole was the perfect guest for this week’s episode. Mimi is a 2nd year graduate student in the Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counselling program at The University of North Carolina and co-host of The Lovely Becoming podcast. On her podcast, Mimi interviews mental health and eating disorders practitioners from all over to discuss topics related to Intuitive Eating, systems of oppression, anti-fat bias and much more so there was no question Hannah and Ali had to have her on this episode to answer all your questions about emotional eating and coping with your feelings. How can I just rely on physical hunger to guide my food choices? How do you break the vicious cycle of emotional eating? Is it wrong to eat for boredom? Is it ever okay to eat for emotions? How do I stop using food as punishment when I feel I have made a mistake with my eating? What do you think about using food or treats as a reward? How do I break the cycle of using food as a motivation? Emotional eating is a topic that diet culture likes to use to create guilt and shame around choices to eat. Human beings eat for a variety of reasons including for pleasure, joy, comfort, nurturing, excitement, celebration, and many more including nutrients. The diet world wants you to believe that the only permissible reason to eat is physical hunger and eating in response to anything apart from hunger cues is wrong. Hannah, Ali and Mimi are here to call B.S. on this harmful rhetoric and help to support you in your journey of learning to cope with your emotions while remembering there are no conditions on “unconditional permission”.

    the one about feeling your fullness

    the one about feeling your fullness

    In this week’s episode, Hannah and Ali talk all things Intuitive Eating principle #6: Feel Your Fullness. They are joined once again by Certified Body Trust provider and registered dietitian Aaron Flores. Aaron joined Hannah and Ali last season on one of their most popular episodes about body trust so they knew they had to have him back again. Aaron has worked in eating disorders in a variety of settings with a focus on Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size where he helps individuals make peace with food and develop body-positive behaviors so there was no better topic to bring him back for then answering all your listener questions on fullness. Does fullness lead to weight gain?  Is it okay to feel fullness? How do I stop the guilt and shame I feel with fullness? What does fullness actually feel like? How do I learn about fullness when I have always been a member of the clean plate club? Will fullness cues become more tolerable over time? Why is it that I always feel full as soon as I eat? Diet culture tries to reduce Intuitive Eating to simply the “eat when you’re hungry, stop when you are full” diet but the connection to our body is SO much more than that. The purpose of Intuitive Eating is to connect body, mind and the food we eat which means learning to allow and respect the sensations that come with fullness. In this week’s episode Hannah, Ali and Aaron will start you on the path towards using this sixth principle of Intuitive Eating to give you permission to truly feel your fullness while tuning into and trusting your body.

    the one about discovering the satisfaction factor

    the one about discovering the satisfaction factor

    In this week’s episode, Hannah and Ali talk all things Intuitive Eating principle #5: Discover the Satisfaction Factor. They are joined by registered dietitian and certified intuitive eating counselor Kathleen Meehan. Kathleen is passionate about satisfying food and respectful care for all bodies, and helps people reconnect to their needs through curiosity and a practice of non-judgmental awareness so she was the perfect guest to answer all your listener questions about satisfaction. How do you reconnect with pleasure in eating when you’ve lived your whole life according to food rules? How do you know you’re satisfied with a meal? What do you look for and where do I start to connect to satisfaction? What if the only foods that satisfied you were high in sugar and fat or fast food? How can I be certain that if I let myself be satisfied I won’t eat forever and ever? Is it true sweeteners make you more hungry and you’ll end up eating more? The idea of truly allowing satisfaction can be a tricky one as diet culture has co-opted this concept once again with fear and anti-fat bias. Diet culture wants us to believe that adding pleasure or satisfaction is indulgence but Hannah, Ali and Kathleen are here to tell you this important principle is possible for all. This episode will give you all the goods on this fifth Intuitive Eating principle and be sure to leave you feeling satisfied!
