    Letting go of fear and insecurity around food to open up a path to true food freedom (Rachel's Story)

    Letting go of fear and insecurity around food to open up a path to true food freedom (Rachel's Story)

    Hey Rebel! 
    Imagine waking up every day consumed by thoughts of food, haunted by the scale, and trapped in a relentless cycle of restriction followed by loss of control. If this resonates with you, know that you're not alone. This was once my reality, and it was also the reality for today's guest, my past group coaching client, Rachel. 
    In today's episode, we delve into how Rachel has rebuilt her relationship with food—from a regimen of strict control to embracing body cues with compassion, from emotional eating to savoring meals with genuine pleasure, and becoming a confident intuitive eater. Rachel not only enjoys a wide variety of foods today but also sets an empowering example for her children, raising them now as intuitive eaters! 
    Fear and insecurity around food has opened up a path to true food freedom for Rachel and her family, and I hope you leave inspired by her transformational story!

    Does existing in a larger body cause joint pain? (with Physical Therapist, Dr. Lisa)

    Does existing in a larger body cause joint pain? (with Physical Therapist, Dr. Lisa)

    Hey Rebel!
    Does existing in a larger body automatically lead to more joint pain and daily discomfort?
    You may automatically assume, "yes!"...but what if that's a myth? To help navigate this popular topic I brought in Dr. Lisa, a weight-inclusive physical therapist and body image coach, to help us dive deep into how diet culture infiltrates the physical therapy space and challenge many misconceptions surrounding body size and pain.
    Get ready to hear all about:
    What actually causes pain (and how it’s not simply a result of body size). How to move away from the mindset that it’s your fault if you experience body aches, pains, or ailments. How to better understand the signals your body sends when you’re experiencing discomfort. One daily practice to help protect your body. & more!
    Ps. Pay special attention to Dr. Lisa’s discussion on the shame people feel when they believe their body aches are their fault. You might hear some powerful parallels between the shame experienced from dieting failures and the shame related to physical ailments.

    How I Feel About Coaches Who Say You Need To "Look The Part" (Answering a Listener Question)

    Hey Rebel! 
    Today we are answering a question submitted by a listener named Veronica. She asks, "What do you think about coaches who promote body transformations, the before and after, the way they work? I am a Pilates instructor, became a coach myself, but I don't agree with the system, so I don't promote it."
    In today's episode, I also share my opinion on topics like:
    Progress pictures Weighing yourself every day Tracking macros And coaches who say you need to look a certain way because you are an example If you have your own question that you would like addressed here on the Diet Culture Rebel podcast, then go to dietculturerebel.com/podcast to submit one!

    Overcoming 20 Years Of Body Shame and Stress About Food (Michelle's Story)

    Hey Rebel!
    There's nothing I love more than hearing people who struggled with their relationships with food for so long recount how intuitive eating changed their lives for the better. That's the story you'll be hearing today, as my past group coaching client, Michelle, shares how she went from obsessing over food, struggling with her body image, and overcoming addiction, to now being in a place where she can go on spontaneous dates, listen to her body, and never diet again!
    Michelle shares so much wisdom about the mindset shifts she made to begin challenging her relationship with food. She realized that if you are going to have to eat every day for the rest of your life, you might as well make the best of it!
    You'll also hear her discuss:
    The origin story of her body shame growing up When she realized her food struggles deserved help How she moved through the honeymoon phase The importance of embracing fear throughout the journey & more! I know you'll walk away from this episode with inspiration!
