    episode 26: the one about coronavirus

    episode 26: the one about coronavirus

    In this special episode, Hannah and Ali talk all things coronavirus. In times of stress and uncertainty it makes sense that we look for things to control. One of the things that feels like it is in our control is how we feed and move our bodies… and even that feels threatened in light of grocery store shortages and social distancing recommendations. Hannah and Ali get together for a bonus episode to tackle the questions coming up about food, nutrition and health during this pandemic. Are there any foods that can prevent or cure COVID-19? How do I handle the stress of these food shortages, especially when I can’t go to the store often or buy what’s normally on my list?  Are canned, frozen or dried foods less healthy than fresh foods? How do I manage the fear of weight gain when my exercise schedule is disrupted and I have constant access to food? If your question hasn't been answered today make sure to head over to @eatcakepod on Instagram where Hannah and Ali will be answering questions, sharing new resources, and much, much more. Please join us on our social media outlets so that even though we are keeping social distance, we know we are definitely not alone. Oh, and PLEASE don't forget to wash your hands!

    episode 25: the one about eating disorders

    episode 25: the one about eating disorders

    In this week’s episode Hannah & Ali talk all things eating disorders. As always this episode focuses on listener questions and shining an informed light on this complex topic. What’s the difference between an eating disorder and disordered eating? What causes eating disorders? How do you support a loved one if you think they’re struggling with their eating? How do you explain your eating disorder to your family and friends? How do you face the scale or approach intuitive eating if you’ve had a history of an eating disorder?
    February 1-7 is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week. If any of the information in this episode is relevant to you, know that there is no such thing as looking like you have an eating disorder. Eating disorders do not discriminate; they are severe and far reaching, and affect people of all ages, cultures, genders, socioeconomic status and of ALL weights and shapes. Early access to support is one of the most predictive factors in finding a healthy relationship with food and your body. Unfortunately the stigma associated with this illness often prevents people from accessing the supports they need. This has to stop. Eating disorders can’t afford to wait. Hannah & Ali are here in this special final episode of season 4 to let you know that you are worthy of support, you are deserving of care, and you are not alone.
    If you or someone you know is struggling with your relationship with food, your body or exercise, the first step is asking someone you trust for help. Going to your GP or a trusted healthcare professional is a great place to start. Here are a few of the online resources mentioned in today’s episode:

    episode 23: the one about women's health

    episode 23: the one about women's health

    In this week’s episode Hannah and Ali talk all things women’s health. The diet industry works hard to convince women of their body’s shortcomings, and Hannah and Ali are here to shine a light on some of the amazing things the female body can do. They dive into the research to answer listener questions from start to finish. The episode starts with breaking down the science behind menstrual cycles and how nutrition impacts hormone production. What’s the difference between dietary fat and body fat in supporting hormone health? Does having a history of an eating disorder impact fertility? Is there truth to the recommendation to lose weight in order to alleviate symptoms of PCOS or endometriosis? If I am a “normal” weight why don’t I have regular periods? The more we learn to appreciate the many incredible things our body does, the easier it can become to nourish, fuel, and love this miraculous machine.
