This is a show about health, not weight loss. It’s time to redefine what it means to pursue health, where your well-being matters more than your weight. When you practice Body Kindness®, you create a more satisfying life by being good to yourself. Learn how self-compassion and acceptance help you cultivate a “caregiver” voice and quiet the “inner critic”. HAES Dietitian and Certified Exercise Physiologist Rebecca Scritchfield and her guests have interesting conversations about the cultural influences that keep you stuck in “diet prison” and how you can break free to create meaningful changes in your life. Instead of dieting, you’ll practice self-care, including better sleep, flexible eating patterns, having more fun, and moving in way that feels good, not punishing. Regular guest Bernie Salazar, a former Biggest Loser “winner” shares why he’s happier and healthier as a fat man.
How to Deal with Diabetes Diagnosis Shame
This is Episode 1 in a new mini-series for Body Kindness: Self care for diabetes. We need to talk about diagnosis shame because it’s real. Doctors, family and strangers on the internet make it seem like “it’s your fault” if you get a diagnosis of diabetes or a “warning” of “prediabetes” and it’s especially mean when your weight is to blame. Tune in for our tips on shame resilience and taking meaningful action toward positive change. Show notes bodykindnessbook.com/171. Sponsor: SelfCare4Di

Why We Need to Brave Body Shame in 2021 with Julie Sweeney
You aren't born feeling body shame. It's decided for you, conditioned in you & you become entangled. Dominant culture’s body ideals can keep you ensnared in your own self-loathing. But what if you want out? Make a pivot and CONNECT to your body, even if you wish it was different. Braving body shame is leaning in with empathy & compassion, saying "it's OK, I'm here... I want to care for you." My guest Julie Sweeney discusses the virtual conference Braving Body Shame where people share their body stories.
