You are stuck, hopping on and off diets, and trying the latest one with a glimmer of hope that it will bring you the life of your dreams…the perfect partner and family, an awesome closet of clothes that look amazing on you, remarkable vacations that people only see on pinterest, a fulfilling career that lights you up, best girlfriends and an exciting social life…
I hate to break it to you but the diet is not going to get you there.
It’s actually just going to restrict good food and fun from your life, and leave you binge eating a pint of ice cream when you can’t handle it anymore.
So instead of a soul-sucking diet, you need to start soul-searching to help you figure out what activities, career, and relationships will fill your soul on a regular basis.
And that’s exactly what we do here on the Quit Dieting for Good podcast. We will dive into diet culture, intuitive eating, all forms of self-care, emotional eating, body image, and more through teachings from me, your health & lifestyle coach, and honest conversations with amazing women from around the world that have valuable nuggets of wisdom to share.
I'm here to let you know that I'm going to be pressing pause on the show. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed in my life at the moment (more on that below), and the podcast was on the list of things I don't "have" to be investing time into right now. (But it WILL be back!) Let this be your invitation to take a deep breath and see what you might be able to press pause on in your own life.

How Do I Stop Emotional Eating?
Navigating uncharted territory while dealing with lots of emotions can result in using food as coping mechanism. From boredom (hello quarantine!) to frustration to loneliness to feeling celebratory; if you use food to deal with an emotion, that's emotional eating. We all do it, and only we can decide if it's working for us or not.

Can I Eat Dessert Everyday?
At the end of the day, only you know what is right for you. You don't need to work off of some sense of "good" or "bad", and you don't need to get outside approval. Figuring out whether you'll eat dessert everyday is a fun chance to get to know more about yourself and your body!

"Bouncing Back" After Having a Baby
So....my body isn't exactly "bouncing back" to what it was pre-baby. And you know what? That's okay! Part of my intuitive eating practice right now is really learning how to love and appreciate my body as it is. That's an ever-evolving journey, and I wanted to give you a sneak peak into how it's going.

Tired of constantly dieting?
This is a great podcast to trash the diet. Such a relief to hear Caitlin support body love and switch the diet mindset from restriction to enjoying life. A must for anyone who has food guilt.
Hi! So I’m here for self care! My therapist actually sent me your list of self care suggestions and from there I’m listening to episode 100! I’m taking your challenge of adding 2-3 self care things into my daily life!
A must listen!!
Caitlin does an amazing job of helping women begin and continue on the path of intuitive eating & reconnecting with their bodies. This is a fantastic place start for anyone looking to get off the diet train and just feel good again! Thank you Caitlin!
