Amazing and helpful content

I can’t thank Sarah enough for her wealth of knowledge in helping people like me recover from HA. I’ve been listening to her podcasts for a couple of weeks now and she has really helped me rethink my approach to food and exercise - and just my health in general. I love how she discusses all aspects of HA and beyond - literally any questions I have on it I can usually find in one of her podcasts. Her topics really challenge my motives in the area of health and fitness whilst helping me learn that sometimes a perspective shift is what’s required to really move forward. Sarah dives deep into what it really means to be healthy as she discusses many relevant topics relating to HA but also mental health, nutrition, working out and diet culture.

Definitely recommend for anyone starting their HA recovery journey - you will be equipped with so much info that will benefit you along the way! 🫶🏻

Long time listener

I recommend this podcast for ANYONE with HA, or an unhealthy relationship with food and exercise. Sarah covers so many recovery topics (& all of the nuances in between) in a way that is super easy to understand. She does so whilst being incredibly articulate & not shying away from the science!
Love you Sarah (& Henry ;)
