I had so many “aha” moments during this conversation. You could say that Stephanie Dodier helps women break away from diet culture. But that doesn’t do her work justice. She promotes counterculture principles that permanently change how women relate to their bodies, including how to de-link self-love from body love and how to disrupt harmful generational knowledge transfer. She is empowering women to change the world from the inside out.
Stephanie is a Clinical Nutritionist who created the Going Beyond the Food Method, a cornerstone of her Conquer and Thrive program. She uses her own experience with food and her body to sustain her investment in sharing how she approaches personal health.
Here are the main topics of this amazing conversation:
Why the podcast has a new name Introducing Stephanie Dodier and how she inspires What “being healthy” has come to mean 14:00 Why Stephanie cares so much about the culture associated with being healthy 15:00 Stephanie’s experience accepting and loving her body is ... other people Many sectors profit off of women feeling like they aren’t good enough Stephanie’s journey with food and her body Women who ask for help with weight gain are ostracized by society because they don’t fit the typical need profile About diet culture and societally imposed body ideals for women There is diversity in women’s body size going back millennia- as far as we can trace back How and why the medical industry participates in diet culture Self-love versus body neutrality The effect of living in a patriarchal society on “programming” girls’ relationships with their body Generational norms contribute to the persistence of diet culture Jenn’s early experiences with diet culture How to begin pushing back against diet culture 43:00 intuition 43:20 how to deal with sabotage- how to re-think sabotage Redefining health to be more than just a physical body Linking “optimum health” to social justice Moving away from the idea that everyone is meant to prioritize being perfectly healthy Diet culture affects girls’ behavior as early as elementary school How the pandemic is affecting body relationships We should be teaching in schools how to process emotion, which would affect our relationship with food How Jenn and others feel when processing all of the topics covered in this episode The Conquer and Thrive program and Stephanie’s podcast Hoping this episode supports you on the path of knowing, accepting, and loving who you truly are.
