How To Truly Accept Your Body
This episode is a follow on from episode 207 on your body as your long lost twin. Listen to that here:
Today I talk about three ways to reconnect to that long lost twin inside you and make those important health and weight goals much more easily achievable.
Reconnection Point 1: Eating Presence
What is eating presence? Well, it’s slow eating, Jim - but not as we know it.
Slow eating has probably the same status in your mind as watching paint dry while being poked with a sharp stick - boring and painful.
No lie - it is uncomfortable. But in the same way that many of the great leaps forward in your life (getting married, becoming a parent, getting the promotion) involved discomfort, it is so worth it.
So what has eating slowly got to do with feeling more connected to your body? Well, when you are eating slowly, you are NOT eating fast - and speed eating is a surefire way to check out of your body. It’s as if you have to drug yourself just to sit next to your wounded self in the canteen of life. It’s like Back to the Future where George McFly is the wounded self, Biff the bully is the inner critic, and Marty (Michael J Fox) is the part of you that is eating slowly to sit by George.
Reconnection Point 2: Evolutionary Psychology
Evolutionary psychology is, in a nutshell, the part of our brain left over from our cavedwelling ancestors: our Cavebrain. Fight or flight is one example - you switch into lightning fast reaction mode if you see a dangerous driver or your child runs into the road.
The great news is that you can use your Cavebrain to feel more body acceptance.
Reconnection Point 3: Possibility Shifting
People have been in struggle for years and years around their health. Limiting beliefs are the culprit - but simply telling yourself to ignore them. The truth is that these beliefs are a faulty coping mechanism. In this episode I go into more details on this.

How Twenty Minutes A Day In November Could Change Everything
Join the free planning session for the 3x1 project on Tues 1st Nov 8pm UK/4pm EST (Note different time difference this week only)
The 3x1 Project is a one month, low maintenance way to slide a healthy new habit into your busy life - right under the radar of your self sabotage!
How many times have you started off with phrases like MASSIVE ACTION careering round your brain, high on your good intentions - only to be tripped up by your own resistance ……days later (you insert the number)
What if you accepted that resistance is a fact of life, and instead created a workaround that allowed you to make real, sustainable progress on ONE area of your health?
This is the 3 x 1 plan
One Seedling Change
One Structural Scaffold in your daily routine
Once a day track your progress and celebrate
This approach will teach your mind and body to act in spite of your own resistance AND FEEL AWESOME in the process. You will train your brain to get a hit of feel good dopamine from even small successes. What do you think is going to happen to your motivation? It will skyrocket. And your resistance? It will divebomb.

Listened in to episode 87 with Sarah Iles who shared her journey with anorexia and found it very moving to listen to
Harriet had not only a wonderful voice but a great interview style and asked thought provoking questions
Will definitely listen to more!
Very difficult to listen to
Monotone - and confusing dialogue - where is the correlation to other aspects of life like exercise! - confusing, if you have eating issues as you talk about, are you really the right person to give advise ? You cloud each topic with your experience - as someone who is interested in the topic in a Theraputic sense, Ive never had an eating disorder - I've never also overthought food in the way that this expert clearly does, it would make anyone confused on the topic of food ! What is your point ?
I listened to episode 060, all about the World Cup and how tribal it is. It was a fascinating conversation about how tribal and community influences how you eat and the foods you consume. It made me pause and think about the different tribes in my life and what relationship food has in those circles. Love it, keep going!
