    what would you say to your inner child about body positivity? with Zoë Bisbing, LCSW

    what would you say to your inner child about body positivity? with Zoë Bisbing, LCSW

    Today we’ve enlisted Zoë Bisbing, an eating disorder therapist, activist, mother of three and co-founder of @fullbloomproject to talk about body positive parenting skills and inner child work.

    If you’ve ever felt like you *WANT* to be body positive (so you can push back on the very diet culture that hurt you!)…but struggle to feel positive about YOUR OWN larger or changing body, you’re not alone. 

    We talk about where the disconnect between your body positive heart and mind, why it's so hard to heal from past diet trauma, and what you can do to move forward, while preventing harm to others around you. 

    In this episode you’ll learn:


    The difference between your body genetics and body ancestry on body positivity
    What it takes for the word  “fat” to become a neutral descriptor if you have a history of bullying, shame, and trauma around the word “fat”
    Creative techniques to approach your own reparenting,  or inner child work, around food and body image, especially if you didn’t have a body positive parent yourself!
    How to create a body positive environment for kids you encounter: as a parent, aunt, or, anyone close to young people!

    Loving the pod and finding benefit? I’d love your honest review! Want to be my ABSOLUTE hero? Go on and share your favorite episode with someone you care about. Spreading the word helps us Break the Diet Cycle, together!

    losing the weight of generational dieting with Summer R [Melissa's former client]

    losing the weight of generational dieting with Summer R [Melissa's former client]

    For years, Summer didn’t even consider her dieting to be a “problem”. How could it be? A self proclaimed “good girl’ - she was convinced clean eating and weight loss were good girl things to do. Her takeaway when diets failed her? SHE was the problem. Coming from a family of generational dieters, and eager to do whatever it took to get dieting “right", Summer eventually wound up in a scary, restrictive on-and-off dieting pattern. 

    Today, Summer speaks about her experiences with chronic dieting recovery, including insights from her 1:1 coaching work with Melissa inside the No More Guilt Coaching program. This episode will help you:


    make meaning of the sadly, all-too-common generational diet trauma experience of dieting with your Mother as a teen
    unpack how magazines like “Seventeen” and “Shape” normalized disordered body ideals and dieting practices
    explore why so many people say "it's not that bad" about their disordered eating (as Summer shares the scary dieting moment that ultimately brought her to Intuitive Eating)
    figure out the difference between true Intuitive Eating and just “tricking yourself” you are doing it (but actually you are still dieting)

    You will love Summer's simple tips on what she did to finally stop snapping back into diet culture in a never ending spiral, and learn what she loves most about her newfound food freedom, just 7 months after starting her work with Melissa inside the No More Guilt Coaching program.

    If you loved this episode, let me know! Your review helps keep this show going, so if you have a moment - review the pod, or, share this episode with a friend. I’d be so grateful!

    it's never "too late" to become an Intuitive Eater with Patrice W. [Melissa's former client]

    it's never "too late" to become an Intuitive Eater with Patrice W. [Melissa's former client]

    How long have you been dieting? Has it been an ACTUAL lifetime? Extended exposure to dieting may come new worries: can you really change after all this time? Is it worth even trying at this point? Can you be healthy as you get older AND recover your relationship with food at the same time? Too many women tell themselves "it's not that bad" - further perpetuating the never ending diet cycle!

    In this episode Melissa interviews her former client Patrice so she can share her successes inside the No More Guilt 3 month program after dieting for 50+ years. As a retired woman in her 60s, Patrice talks about how she approached intuitive eating work (first -on her own, and later with Melissa as her coach) in a way that folks of all ages can benefit from!

    We discuss:


    Patrice’s history with the binge-restrict diet cycle and what kept her saying "just one more time"
    The moment when she realized Intuitive Eating was even “a thing”
    Different types of support and providers available to help heal disordered eating (and how Patrice decided working with a Registered Dietitian would be right for her)
    The big question Melissa asked Patrice to help her overcome body image fears in time for her son’s wedding, just as she imagined.

    why can't our families be "normal" about food?

    why can't our families be "normal" about food?

    Do you ever just wish your family was “normal’ when it came to food and body image stuff? 

    Especially as you start to learn more about Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size, you can’t help but grieve what could have been if only YOUR mother had learned to break the diet cycle so that you didn't have to. 

    What would life be like if diet culture weren't such a big part of your family's story? I think about that all the time for my own family. And the truth is, we both may never know. What I do know is that grief around your experience with family diet trauma can feel more tender around the holidays as you may be spending more time back inside the family unit your diet trauma came from. 

    How do we allow differences within our family's healing journey work while also protecting our peace and calm as adult children of chronic dieters? Are  we doomed to stay stuck in our family diet trauma? 

    With Thanksgiving this week and the holidays around the corner, Melissa is taking you beyond “boundary setting tips” by helping you consider:


    What does it mean to have a “normal” family when it comes to food and body image?
    What generational diet response are you most likely to experience over the holidays?
    What boundaries can- and cannot - do for your Intuitive Eating practice
    How to cope with kindness while practicing boundary setting with family stuck in diet culture (who might not understand...)
    The pros and cons of different types of boundary setting techniques you see on social media

    If this episode made you realize it’s time to get more support in your Intuitive Eating work, dm me @no.more.guilt on Instagram for more information about my current programs.

So helpful!

I am so grateful for finding this podcast. Melissa and Delina offer such great advice and their episodes are easy to listen to. I feel like they gave me a compass after years of being lost and struggling because I was following the wrong maps.

Intuitive eating for your soul

Melissa has a way of teaching important, profound truths without making them too heavy or hard to understand. She is not just extremely knowledgeable in her subject, but she has a gift for teaching and inspiring. I discovered Melissa when she was a guest on another podcast, not related to diet, and I was immediately intrigued by her style of speaking and down to earth approach. Now I’m hooked! I’m still early on in my intuitive eating journey but I’m loving the positive guidance and inspiration provided by this podcast. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and joyful attitude with the world!
