    How To Actually Be Mindful Ft. Lisa Hayim

    How To Actually Be Mindful Ft. Lisa Hayim

    Sami and Aleen are joined once again by registered dietician (and fan-favorite) Lisa Hayim, aka @thewellnecessities, to talk all about mindfulness. They start with a reflection on the overwhelming anxiety many of us are feeling right now, and share some emotional tools to deal with these feelings. They talk about connecting with resources to help you, including breathing techniques and physical touch, and share how to use these tools in your own life. Next, they discuss staying in the moment, why it’s impossible to always stay as mindful as we’d like to be, and why Lisa takes a week (yes, a week!) off from her phone. Plus, they talk about identifying real danger vs perceived danger in order to gain perspective on your own thoughts. Finally, they finish out the show with a conversation about gently untangling your own emotions the way you would a piece of jewelry.

    So You Want To Try Intuitive Eating

    So You Want To Try Intuitive Eating

    Aleen and Sami are back to talk all about intuitive eating. They start with an explanation of what exactly intuitive eating means, including how Aleen first gave it a chance after returning from her honeymoon. They talk about the lack of pressure involved, and describe what an intuitive eating therapy session is like. Plus, they discuss the role of fatphobia in our eating habits, and how important it is to acknowledge that role before you can make a mental shift. Next, they discuss what it’s like to stop checking yourself in the full-length mirror (even if you grew up in a house of mirrors). They talk about the overuse of the term “mindfulness” and why it doesn’t seem to have any real meaning anymore. Finally, they close the show with a conversation about how to eat less by simply giving your body exactly as much as it wants.

    Sami and Aleen are back to talk about Sami’s upcoming wedding ceremony and how to plan a wedding in a pandemic.

Next, they discuss the pressure to lose weight for your wedding and how you carry yourself differently when you’re confident in your body. Then Aleen gives Sami her best wedding advice, which leads to a conversation about living in the moment and being mindful of your experiences.

    Does Size Matter (When It Comes To Health) Ft. Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford

    Does Size Matter (When It Comes To Health) Ft. Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford

    Aleen and Sami are joined by Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford, obesity medicine doctor and health policy expert from Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. They start by talking about how she got into obesity medicine, both as a researcher and practitioner, and just how new the field really is. They discuss the definition of obesity, whether or not BMI is a useful measurement, and why it’s important where you’re carrying weight on your body. Next, they talk about the ‘health at every size’ movement, and what the medical evidence tells us about the level of control we actually have over our own bodyweight. Plus, they discuss the gaps in our healthcare that are influenced by race, income, and opportunity, and just how hard it is to see those gaps when they’re right in front of you. Finally, they finish out the show with their Non Scale Wins, leading to conversation about not stressing over bikini season.

    Feel Free To Take Up Space Ft. Chrissy King

    Feel Free To Take Up Space Ft. Chrissy King

    This week Sami and Aleen are joined by Chrissy King, fitness coach and creator of the Body Liberation Project, to talk about anti-racism in the wellness industry and why a woman’s self-worth should not be tied to how her body looks. Chrissy starts with the story of how she got into fitness and eventually found self-acceptance by hitting rock bottom, inspiring her body liberation philosophy. They discuss the #takeupspace movement and explain why you shouldn’t shrink yourself for the comfort of other people; plus, the impact of white male mediocrity on the available space for women, and women of color in particular, to thrive. Next, they discuss the role of fat phobia in our daily lives, including the historical connection with racism followed by answering a listener email about setting boundaries with friends. Finally, they close out the show with their Non Scale Wins, including a story about literally turning your back on the scale, and another about not judging yourself for not working out.
