My fav podcaster

Hi Em, I’ve followed your journey for years through social media but only recently started listening to your podcasts. I first listened to your BII podcast as I myself believe this us something I have been also dealing with. Thank you so much for sharing your journey and for bringing Dr. Brain Lee on. These have been extremely helpful to me and have given me the courage to book my explant. I’ve since then binge listened to the rest of your podcasts on my way to and fro work. I love how you use scientific knowledge to back up what you are saying but also keep it really interesting and easy to understand. P.s you are killing it! it makes me so happy to see your finally getting results and also gives my currant situation hope. Thanks - keep doing you xx

I learn more from Em than I do at school!

I’m sixteen and the world is full of bad role models for young people and I’m super proud to have found EmBody Radio to learn from. I’m learning so much from these podcasts and they help in my disordered eating recovery more than you could ever imagine.
Em delivers an easy to follow guide to the world of fitness and how to find the truth in all the false information which is SO helpful cause I’ve been doing things wrong for so long! 😂
Thank you for changing my outlook on diet and weight training💙
I’m my own wonderwoman!!
