Your Ideal Body isn’t dictated by superficial beauty standards. Nor does it have anything to do with changing your body so you’ll feel accepted by others or deemed beautiful and worthy by society.

Your Ideal Body isn’t even a what - it’s a when. It’s the body you’re in when you’re no longer obsessing over your food and body. It’s when you’re comfortable and confident in your own skin. And it’s when you’re living your full life experience without fear of judgement from others or from yourself.

For the last decade, thought leaders and world-class transformation coaches, Tony and Deanna Schober, have been plugging people into their Ideal Body Formula™ so they can ditch diet culture and naturally achieve their own unique Ideal Body by improving their relationships with food, body, exercise, and mind.

From Tony’s binge eating disorder and debilitating body image struggles, to Deanna’s food and body obsession and yo-yo dieting, they’ve been there and done that. And now they’re helping others overcome these same struggles.

Show topics include:

emotional eating
weight concerns
intuitive eating
limiting beliefs
body acceptance
binge eating
body image
exercise empowerment
self-improvement
healthy eating
habit change
success mindset
mindful exercise
active lifestyle
motivation

#1 Best Podcast for Weight Loss

This isn’t a podcast on how to lose weight, although it helps me with that goal. This is a podcast on how to gain mental strength to build lasting momentum on my journey to health. I needed to hear Tony & Deanna’s advice my whole life. Thank goodness they made this podcast!

The only fitness & nutrition podcast I listen to anymore

First off, the title is not a joke. After I started listening to this podcast, I stopped listening to every other fitness & nutrition podcast in my subscription list.
This podcast is chock full of relatable information that you can apply immediately. You don't need equipment, apps, software, or anything but a desire to get off the merry-go-round of binge/restrict cycles, self-loathing, and judginess that is diet culture. Their definition of the ideal body is brilliant and you can start applying the principles today.
The two hosts feel like your friends in no time at all. They're personable, likable, and upfront with their own struggles and wins. I relate most to Tony’s eating history and personality, but to Deanna as a woman. Both of them are aces. They remind us by example that health and wellness are an ongoing process, not an outcome, that setbacks are a normal part of life, and that consistency counts more than you think.
Did I mention the wordsmithery? These two are hilarious and their banter will ameliorate, not exacerbate, your commute, should you listen to them in the car as I do. Almost every episode gives me some new insight (or epiphany, as Deanna would say) and something to chew on while I drive.
Lastly, I've become an avid fan of Yasso bars, which I heard about here, and hope that the folks over at Yasso are paying attention. Fitness & Sushi are proselytizing your products, guys! Give some of that love back to them!

Great Podcast

Enjoy listening to the interaction between this couple. The length of the podcast are around 30 minutes and not overwhelming long. Now with the individual podcast each host is doing allows me to get to know each struggles and I’m not the only one going through struggles
