In this day and age people are more concerned about health than ever before. People are exercising religiously. They’re concerned about food quality. They’re dieting; counting calories or macros or having long lists of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ foods. Unfortunately for all their hard work, people aren’t getting the results they’re hoping for. Chris Sandel is a nutritionist and sees these kinds of problems all the time; people who are trying to be healthy, but their attempts are causing more harm than good. In this podcast Chris looks at what health really means, not just the appearance of health but genuine health. He interviews guests as well as doing informative podcasts on his own. His areas of expertise are diet recovery, eating disorders, body image, hormonal health (fertility and thyroid issues), metabolism, habit formation, nutrition, eating habits, physiology, exercise and movement. There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to health, and this podcast will teach you how to listen to your body so you can be best supporting it nutritionally, mentally and emotionally.

    Rebroadcast: Body Image and Self-Worth with Summer Innanen

    On this episode of Real Health Radio, I'm chatting with Summer Innanen. For many of you, Summer doesn’t need an introduction. This is her third appearance on the show and someone I have been a fan of for nearly a decade.



    This episode is all about body image, with Summer and I talking about how we help clients in this area. We cover:

    What body image is and how it’s connected to self-worth

    Confidence and its connection to body image

    The common mistakes people make when trying to improve body image

    Feelings and emotions and how important they are with this work.

    Dieting, exercise, body trust, comparison, and the judgement of others and how each of these is connected to body image

    And much more

A game changer for helping recovery

Chris’ unassuming, curious and compassionate manner of hosting this podcast is incredibly refreshing and has been a key part in helping me face, understand, accept and challenge my eating disorder. The podcasts are always informative and educational and manager to cover the topic of disordered eating from a multitude of different angles and varied speakers.
