This is a show about health, not weight loss. It’s time to redefine what it means to pursue health, where your well-being matters more than your weight. When you practice Body Kindness®, you create a more satisfying life by being good to yourself. Learn how self-compassion and acceptance help you cultivate a “caregiver” voice and quiet the “inner critic”. HAES Dietitian and Certified Exercise Physiologist Rebecca Scritchfield and her guests have interesting conversations about the cultural influences that keep you stuck in “diet prison” and how you can break free to create meaningful changes in your life. Instead of dieting, you’ll practice self-care, including better sleep, flexible eating patterns, having more fun, and moving in way that feels good, not punishing. Regular guest Bernie Salazar, a former Biggest Loser “winner” shares why he’s happier and healthier as a fat man.

Changing my life

Rebecca’s post cast might be the most important tool in my recovery. I have read the books HAES, Intuitive Eating, and practice these mindsets actively, and of course Rebecca’s book, Body Kindness, but there is something so supportive and nurturing about having her podcast in the background of my day as I go about life. Thank you thank you Rebecca!

Positive Life Change

I found this podcast on a random day when I decided I needed additional support on top of my therapy as a sexual assault survivor. I didn’t know what to expect from Rebecca’s podcasts, so I kept an open mind hoping to shed some light on my own struggle of self-love, appreciation, and binge eating disorder. I quickly fell in routine to listening to the podcast first thing in the morning because of the positivity it added to my days. I am nearing the 2017 podcasts and am so grateful for Rebecca and all her guests and topics. She has helped open the door to body positivity and I can’t thank her enough. Not all days are easy, and without her encouragement, I wouldn’t be able to say it’s ok to have bad days! Thank you again Becca! You are helping for many people and creating a world of positivity! ❤️❤️

So helpful

I just got into HAES, read the book and then also found the BOdy Kindness book which I bought. There is so much wonderful information in both books and the podcasts are incredibly helpful in giving examples and stories to which I can relate. I am a 71 y.o. woman who dieted/restricted/over-exercized since age 18. I quit "dieting" 10 years ago because they only caused more weight gain in the long run (and funny thing, I was dnever heavy to begin with--go figure). I have since tried to concentrate on healthy habits and these podcasts are a perfect reinforcement for that. Thank you so much!
