The Food is Not Bae Podcast is a podcast that goes beyond the typical verbiage of weight loss and diet culture. In a homegirl, down-to-earth, yet professional, type of way, Dr. Ebony chats with you about ways to free yourself from societal, familial, and cultural messages rooted in the diet culture that is keeping you stuck in a toxic relationship with food. Dr. Ebony will discuss the issues we don't want to talk about or want anybody to know - those internal (and external) issues leading to weight gain and the underlying struggles to take it off. Yes, she goes there! Dr. Ebony, a licensed Psychologist, Author, and Food Relationship Guide, talks about the difficult issues in efforts to help you, and your communities, better understand where toxic relationships with food begin and how to restructure them in healthier ways. Episodes focus on the links between food and issues like rejection, betrayal, trauma, loneliness, grief, confusion, pain, religion, politics, culture, social approval, and so much more. Dr. Ebony goes beyond the regular path of providing dieting advice and, instead, digs deeper into real life issues. She connects how these issues are tied to mindset, food choices, disease, and the overall struggles people have with losing weight, being consistent, and following through. After digging into areas that have been hidden for so long, Dr. Ebony provides you with real talk and real tips and strategies for overcoming internal struggles and regaining control of your life and your health - on your terms!

THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE!!!!

Dr. Ebony has changed my views on how I viewed myself and my relationship with food. If you haven’t read her book ‘Food is not Bae’ then you NEED to get it. It was like she was speaking to my entire childhood and adulthood. In her podcasts, she piggybacks on the same concepts that we should change our narrative in order to change our lives. Every time I listen, I am shaking my head in agreement like “yep, she’s right. I do do that..”! She makes me feel comfortable in my own skin and happy about the changes I am making in my life whether large or small. If you want to break away from your toxic relationship with food then this is the place to get some motivation and encouragement!!!
