Episode 99: Feelings and Fat Thoughts with Special Guest Julie Norman It's Not About Food Podcast with Laurelee Roark

    • Mental Health

Fat thoughts are the kind of thoughts we have when we are criticizing our bodies, calling them too fat, too ugly, too big or too “whatever.” These thoughts are learned from our cultures’ fat prejudice and body hatred. Sometimes when we are young and experience shame or uncomfortable feelings. We change them into body hatred. When we begin to understand that our fat thoughts and body hatred are learned, then we can take the blame off our body, and process the deeper feeling in far more constructive and fulfilling ways. 
 Julie Norman, BS (nutrition/dietetics), E-RYT (Experienced, Registered Yoga Teacher), ES (Equine Specialist), CHC (Certified Health Coach)
Julie delights in guiding others in experiences that foster growth and healing from a place of self-love. She believes this is essential for both individual and collective peace. Her career as a registered dietitian in eating disorders treatment and her own recovery inspired the creation of Body Karma Healing (BKH), her signature yoga program that guides women to peace with their bodies and food for authentic empowerment. Julie has two book offerings; Poems From The Path of Peace, Volumes 1 & 2 that share musings from her own healing journey. She's available for public speaking engagements, coaching and consulting on yoga, horses as healers, creativity, eating disorders, body image, mindful eating, stress management and wellness.
