    Overcoming the Fear of Failure & Embracing Change

    Overcoming the Fear of Failure & Embracing Change

    Hey Rebel!
    Have you ever wondered, "what if intuitive eating doesn't work for me"? Buckle in for today's episode as we delve into a topic that resonates with many - the internal battle with doubt and fear that arises when we face the new journey to find a healthier relationship with food.
    We all recognize that little voice of doubt, whispering concerns and fears whenever we're on the brink of embracing change. It's a universal experience, and most importantly, it's completely normal.
    We'll explore the often overlooked consequences of dieting, shedding light on how these practices not only affect our relationship with food but also amplify our fear of failure. This fear can be a significant barrier, preventing us from pursuing the healing we so deserve. However, there's hope.

    Rethinking Your Response To Aging With Midlife Health & Nutrition Specialist, Val Schonberg

    Rethinking Your Response To Aging With Midlife Health & Nutrition Specialist, Val Schonberg

    Hey Rebel! 
    Have you ever thought about aging, menopause, and body changes over the lifespan and felt anxious? It makes sense when the diet and beauty industry prey on us to be scared of these things. But what if you could rethink our response to aging and create a more compassionate, neutral, and realistic narrative around these very normal experiences?
    This is why I had Registered Dietitian and Midlife Health Specialist Val Schonberg on the podcast today! My associate dietitian Angie recommended her to come on after she recently took a continuing education course by Val, and I'm so glad she did because more conversations around aging need to be had!
    By tuning in today, you'll hear about:
    how she went from a rather sheltered upbringing from diet culture pressures to later in life becoming a victim to them and struggling.
    what helped her heal and what has helped her embrace and enjoy the aging process.
    the importance of separating your entire self worth from your body size.
    how to incorporate gentle nutrition as you age.
    You can find Val on instagram at @v.schonbergrd or on her website https://valschonberg.com/

    If The Scale Stresses You Out, Here's What You Can Do

    Hey Rebel. 
    Have you ever felt like the scale holds a lot of power over you? It's like if you step on a scale, that will dictate the following food choices you make and how you feel about yourself. I get it, and so many of my clients have felt the same way.
    I want to share with you some options if you feel this way so that you support your overall wellbeing without the scale getting in the way of that.
    Here's what you can hear in today's episode:
    Reflective questions to explore your relationship with the scale Tips to navigate getting weighed at the doctors office Stories about my own relationship with the scale & more! I hope this episode reminds you that you are not alone with your struggles, and you don't have to keep struggling alone!

Eating Disorder recovery

This podcast has helped me so much along with my therapist, and nutritionist in helping me overcome my eating disorder. I am never going back to dieting again and am so thankful I found intuitive eating and food freedom.

Loved the Scale Stress Ep

I had not realized but one of the underlying reasons why I’ve been putting off a physical (even though I’m soon going off of my parents health insurance and would just love to have one before that happens) is because I’m anxious about the scale, being told things about my weight, and having to be vulnerable with a new doctor. This episode offered some valuable advice that I will try to put into use.

Saved Me!

I started listening to this podcast back in October. I was at my rock bottom and could not stand the thought of the next diet I was going to go on. Food took up so much mental space. This podcast provided so much information that helped move me toward finding food and fitness freedom. Bonnie- you are amazing and I look forward to continuing to gain knowledge from your podcast.
