    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)

    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!

    Hey Rebel!
    I am thrilled to have Elyse Resch, co-founder of Intuitive Eating, on the podcast today for an insightful discussion about the future of intuitive eating.

    The future of intuitive eating through a social justice lens The importance of autonomy in food choices for raising the future generation of intuitive eaters How struggling with food could result from your needs not being met. & how "failing" at dieting could actually mean you are a success at ego development and not letting people tell you what to do (love this!). Whether you're new to intuitive eating or a seasoned practitioner, this episode dives into those nuances of intuitive eating that you won't get off an Instagram post (we talk about some of the challenges of social media in this episode. too!)

    My Reaction To Oprah's Special: Shame, Blame and The Weight Loss Revolution

    My Reaction To Oprah's Special: Shame, Blame and The Weight Loss Revolution

    Hey Rebel. Recently, an Oprah special came out titled "shame, blame and the weight loss revolution", all about the popular weight loss drugs right now... and it got a lot of attention. So I decided to watch the special so you don't have to and today I am breaking it down with all of my thoughts... and I have a lot. 
    Surprisingly, there are a few things I agree with. But there are more things that I have concerns about...
    Give it a listen to hear all about the special and even more about the science (or lack thereof) behind these medications.

    Quiet The Food Noise: 3 Ways Intuitive Eating Can Help

    Quiet The Food Noise: 3 Ways Intuitive Eating Can Help

    Hey Rebel! Let's talk about food noise.
    Do you feel like you're always thinking about food? Have you ever felt like:
    When sitting down for breakfast, I can't stop thinking about lunch. When sitting down for lunch, I'm already thinking about dinner. When eating dinner, I'm calculating how I could do "better" tomorrow.  When you're trying to sleep, you can't stop thinking about breakfast tomorrow. It is that constant chatter about food in your head. The thinking about food 24/7. And maybe food noise sounds a little bit different in your head, but if it feels all-consuming, if it feels all-controlling, if it's something that you think about literally all the time, this episode is for you!
    I'm going to share 3 powerful ways that intuitive eating can help to quiet your food noise and free up precious brain space for you to focus on more important things in life.
