    How to Eat Intuitively in 2023 from The Happiness Lab

    How to Eat Intuitively in 2023 from The Happiness Lab

    We’re sharing a preview of another podcast we love, The Happiness Lab. On The Happiness Lab, Dr. Laurie Santos explores all the ways we get our happiness wrong and what we can do to really feel better. She walks through the latest evidence-based strategies for improving your mental health, sharing practical advice on what will really bring more joy. In her latest New Year season of The Happiness Lab, Laurie tackles how to listen to the inner voice of what we really need in the new year. At the start of a new year, we're often bombarded with fad diets, fasting plans and nutritional advice that we can bounce from one way of eating to another without stopping to think: “What do I want to eat?” Psychotherapist Andrea Wachter endured years of disordered eating and obsessing about her weight, until she decided to heed her inner voice and what her body wanted to consume. She explains to Laurie how so-called intuitive eating can free us from both diets and overeating. Hear more from The Happiness Lab at https://podcasts.pushkin.fm/thls6?sid=rebel.

Fat. Proud. Hiding behind skin color.

A “doctor” claims that obesity isn’t a health risk, lol. While they smack their gums crumbs flying. You’re justifying your food addictions. I’m not like the rest of these weak white women who bow at your fat feet, apologizing for my existence. No. Get healthy. Eat what you need, move more, and get enough sleep. Stop eating processed food. This is absurd. Like when I was addicted to heroin, I didn’t make a podcast saying heroin actually isn’t a danger to my health. That’s what this is.
