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.

260: The National Alliance for Eating Disorders with Johanna Kandel
Today on the show I'm chatting with Johanna Kandel. She is the founder and CEO of the National Alliance for Eating Disorders and the author of Life Beyond Your Eating Disorder. We talk about Johanna’s eating disorder, her recovery, and how she founded The Alliance and how it has grown and changed over the last 21 years. Then we cover many topics from her book and some of the wonderful exercises and analogies she shares in it.
Rebroadcast: Health Inequality
This week on the show it is a solo episode where we look at the topic of Health Inequalities. It's so common when talking about health to focus on "choices" and "personal responsibility" and that "health is in your own hands". But the truth of the matter is that at a population level, health is most directly connected to where you live and socioeconomics. Something we explore in great detail by looking at the recent report "Health Equity in England: The Marmot Review 10 Years On."
