Music to my ears
A huge shout out to Louise Green for launching this podcast! I just turned 50 and I’m finally doing the daunting work of shedding the shame from decades of diet related trauma. It’s a journey that is often painful, lonely and confusing. We need your valuable insight and those of your guests! I’m eagerly awaiting each future episode. Cheers from a fellow Canadian 😊
This podcast is exactly what I needed. The guests and Louise are willing to talk about the tough topics and do it in a way that’s thoughtful and inspiring. As a plus size womxn, this is the type of insight I only wish I had sooner. It’s a must listen.
