"But I feel better on a plan!" This is a sentiment Heather's heard many times and even said herself. But, today, she talks with a dietitian and eating disorder expert, Amy Carlson about what's underneath that feeling of needing a food plan to feel like we're doing "okay" in our bodies. Amy and Heather unpack why we feel guilty or like we're doing something "wrong" when we aren't following a plan.
They talk about who and how we decide to follow certain diets or adopt certain food rules. They also talk about how many women hold tightly to the belief that they will feel better, more loved, less rejected, and more once they are in a smaller body. Yet, how many women who have found food freedom can say with certainty that being thinner never gave them those feelings of security they thought it would.
There's so much good stuff in today's episode. If you're the type of person who has always felt better when following a plan or if you're just longing to feel better in your body and aren't even sure if it's possible, today's episode will inspire and encourage you!
