    Season 10, Episode 5: Food Freedom 4 End the Restrict-Binge Cycle

    To end the restrict-binge cycle, we have to address the three root causes of bingeing: deregulated blood sugar, restriction and our story that makes us be all-or-nothing, with food just being one area we approach life like this. 
     
    We’ll discuss:
    How to stop restricting after a binge using the “3-5” rule How to get out of the all-or-nothing cycle that is the root cause of the bingeing in the first place. The three stress responses that lock us into all-or-nothing and how to start seeing new choices To join this round of Truce with Food, visit https://alishapiro.com/truce-with-food

    Season 10, Episode 4: Food Freedom 3: Redefine Self-Acceptance

    Season 10, Episode 4: Food Freedom 3: Redefine Self-Acceptance

    There are many definitions of self-acceptance when it comes to accepting our bodies. I used to think self-acceptance meant resignation. And that didn’t feel like freedom.  In today’s episode, we’ll redefine self-acceptance and discuss:
    The four stages to mastery of self-acceptance for our goals and food choices so we can embody the full range of our true, magical capabilities How taking responsibility for our food allergies can enable us to become intuitive eaters and powerful leaders in our lives. How to not feel deprived with food allergies or life for more eating consistency

    Season 10, Episode 3: Food Freedom 2: Feel in Control, Not Controlled by Food

    You want to want to make a healthy choice. And you don’t want to feel deprived. How do we sink below this seemingly conflicting choice of eating the cookie and feeling crappy or not eating the cookie, feeling deprived and setting ourselves up for overeating or a binge?
     
    In today’s episode, we’ll discuss:
    How Intuitive Eating is a great start yet doesn’t go far enough in helping us feel in control of food
    The difference between control and choice and how choice gets you further with your nutrition, health and weight-loss goals
    How to choose to align with your physiological and psychological feedback loop so you can feel good and not deprived with your food choices.

    Season 10, Episode 2: Food Freedom 1: Stop Monitoring Yourself around Food

    Season 10, Episode 2: Food Freedom 1: Stop Monitoring Yourself around Food

    Many of us monitor ourselves with food. It becomes an obsession; we monitor if we look fat. We monitor if other people are fat or thin. More scrutinization often ends in exhaustion, leading to “I know I shouldn’t but F@$# it”. In other words, more monitoring is counterproductive. 
    But there is hope, and a way to break this cycle. In this episode, we will grapple with the questions of: 
    How do we get out of this monitoring but not executing cycle? 
    How do we rebalance our body and brain chemistry while also healing the emotional?
    How do we not restrict, and instead, discern what is right for our physiological design?
    How do we feel satisfied, satiated, and healthy so that we actually feel great in the skin we are in, not just resigned to a body that we’re not really comfortable in and doesn’t feel healthy because we feel like bad feminists or otherwise shamed by the body positivity movement?

    Season 10, Episode 1: The 6 Freedoms of Sustainable Weight Loss

    In my approach,  weight-loss as a side-effect of balancing your body with the right foods for you (i.e. there isn’t one way of eating that works for everyone) and addressing the emotional reasons we fall off track by overtime, rewriting our story. 
    This approach unlocks options and freedoms previously unknown to you.  In this Insatiable episode, I’ll share how your food and weight battle can serve as post-traumatic growth, the 6 “food freedoms” unlocked by the Truce with Food process based on the 6 most common ways that clients and listeners say their weight obsession “handcuffed” them and more of my own story about how I did this for myself and tips for you to get started for yourself

This is a great podcast

I just found this podcast and can’t recommend it enough . Each of the five episodes I’ve listened to so far contained information that I’ve never heard before and gave me new insights that I think will help. Also I really like the experts Ali brings on.

Outstanding

Ali digs very deep. This is a super helpful podcast for women to understand WHY they react the way they do or think the way they do. Outstanding stuff!
