Special Insatiable podcast: COVID: The Emotional Eating Arc of the Pandemic
The COVID behavioral health trajectory mirrors the out-of-control eating cycle. The toll of our COVID era is why many of us turned to food for the first time or eating issues returned for others. Or for others, it got worse, better, or stayed all-or-nothing.
If we can understand our COVID eating has deeper root causes than “willpower” or “discipline”, we have a genuine shot at profound and radical individual and collective change (yes please).
In this episode, Ali shares:
The six COVID phases, which mirrors the out-of-control eating cycle How the COVID uncertainty trigger intensity and duration influenced our eating How we end up being all-or-nothing with our eating Beginning steps to get out of this cycle and rebuild better than before Recovery ideas for your body and mind\ If this podcast resonated with you and you want to go deeper for individual insights, join my upcoming free coaching workshop on May 12 at https://alishapiro.com/covid-out-of-control-eating-workshop/

Season 11, Episode 7: How to Exercise to Prevent Sugar Cravings with Alisa Vitti
We have so many beliefs about working out: mainly that we should do the same thing and always be “crushing it”. But this approach to working out doesn’t honor the ebb and flow of women’s bodies. This often leads to sugar cravings from exhaustion and wanting to reward ourselves for slogging to the gym when a nap would have gotten us better results!
To help educate, inspire, and fill in some major missing holes with our female biology, Alisa Vitti joins us to discuss:
How society is set up on a man’s hormonal clock and why we need to change to honor our female, infradian clock (and why no one is talking about this)
What the infradian clock is and how it’s a root cause of health, immune and weight issues How to work-out so we honor our bodies needs and don’t turn to sugar from exhaustion or stalled results When our metabolism is slower and faster and how to eat and work-out to align to ensure a healthy metabolism
Season 11, Episode 6: Quitting Alcohol and Managing Sugar Cravings with Laura McKowen
Alcohol is one of the most consumed forms of sugar and quitting alcohol can lead to an increase of sugar cravings and consumption. In this episode, We are the Luckiest author Laura McKowen and I discuss:
Her process to sobriety, which included recognizing our collective, unhealthy story around alcohol and her most important practice
How she learned to own her personal story and discern what was her truth versus the judgments she had about herself to heal her pain
The relationship between her drinking and history of eating disorders
How she stopped eating so much sugar after it initially increased with sobriety
I love this podcast. Ali does an amazing job of exploring the grey area in health/wellness. I love how she approaches topics and explores all sides. I have learned so much from this podcast! Highly recommend
found a friend
I found Ali through my medium, Erika Gabriel, and her words of wisdom have demystified many of my issues with food, and the diets that plague our culture. Ali is incredibly eloquent and approachable. She speaks clearly and with a warmth that cuts straight through the shame and confusion that clouds our minds surrounding food and our bodies. Her podcast is a blessing and I’m grateful to be a listener.
Literally life changing
I do not say that lightly. I found Ali about a year ago through another teacher (Laura McKowen of Spiritualish and Home). I dove into the archives and have now listened to hours and hours of Ali talking about food and healing our relationship to it. But I stay because of Ali’s ability to see and convey that food is only the tip of the iceberg. I’ve learned more helpful information about the female reproductive system, the history of our industrialized food system, and exercising for sustainability than I had anywhere else. And, Ali is always interviewing other experts in their fields which has led me to other amazing teachers!
Because of the information I’ve received from the show I’ve started to finally heal my blood sugar which has been a total game changer- not only for cravings, but for mood, energy, sleep, and relationships! Go. Listen. Now.
