    #34 - Breaking Down Our Top 10 Hidden Forms of Dieting

    #34 - Breaking Down Our Top 10 Hidden Forms of Dieting

    This week, we're breaking down some of the most common forms of hidden dieting behaviors that we see in our work. Because even when we've started to disengage from the concept of dieting for weight loss, some of these behaviors can stick around & have a pretty significant impact on our relationships to both food & our bodies. As always, noticing these things is the first step to making changes, so in this episode we're: identifying 10 common hidden dieting behaviors (plus a bonus behavior that ties them all together!); discussing the origins of these behaviors & how they might be keeping us stuck in diet culture; and offering a framework for how we can recognize sneaky diet behaviors that might not be on this list.

    #32 - Communicating Our Needs: Skills for Mother's Day & Beyond

    #32 - Communicating Our Needs: Skills for Mother's Day & Beyond

    This week, we're building on a conversation Sadie started on her Facebook page around Mother's Day last year about how we can better communicate our needs & wants in order to make the day more satisfying. In this episode, we're exploring how this concept applies far beyond holidays & talking about: the importance of treating communication as a skill we can hone; why repetition is kind; why it's helpful to understand the different ways that people prefer to communicate; the benefits of boundaries; and how learning to communicate our needs can make our whole lives more satisfying. Plus, we each share about how we practice & hone these communication skills in our own work & personal relationships!

    #30 - Finding Your Eating Persona: The Intuitive Eater

    #30 - Finding Your Eating Persona: The Intuitive Eater

    This week, we're wrapping up our 4 episode mini-series on the eating personas with a look at The Intuitive Eater.  Spoiler alert! "Becoming an Intuitive Eater" is not actually about reaching a single endpoint, and it's definitely not just about eating when you're hungry and stopping when you're full. Instead, a practice of Intuitive Eating is about cultivating certain skills that can help us to be more resilient to diet culture. This skillset includes: critical thinking, meeting our needs (for food & a whole lot more), autonomy & self-trust, letting go of perfection, and breaking out of binary thinking. In this episode we break down all of these skills, and discuss how a practice of Intuitive Eating is way more about how we move through the world than it is about what or how we choose to eat.

    #29 - Finding Your Eating Persona: The Professional Dieter

    #29 - Finding Your Eating Persona: The Professional Dieter

    This week, we're continuing our 4 episode mini-series on the eating personas with a look at The Professional Dieter.  The Professional Dieter is someone who has tried many weight loss programs (Noom, WW, Keto, Whole 30), thinks a lot about what they “should” be doing to lose weight, has lost, gained, and lost the same X pounds multiple times, may be someone who regularly has cheat meals/cheat days, and knows the calories, points, or portion sizes for many foods. In this episode we discuss: the difference between being anti-diet culture vs. anti-people-who-diet; the health impacts of weight cycling or yo-yo dieting; the overlap between chronic dieting & disordered eating; and some tools for breaking out of the Professional Dieter mentality.

Just-in-time guidance on how to amplify my autonomy

Several times when I’ve listened to Satisfaction Factor, I’ve wondered if Naomi & Sadie have been reading my mind all week. They shed light on patterns that I’ve been noticing and messaging/norms I’ve been questioning on my own (always pushing me one step further than I would have gotten independently). I’m so grateful for how gracefully they share their experiences in confronting diet culture. They give concrete ideas on how I can identify threats to my autonomy or to body diversity, and help me think about how I want to respond in ways that are authentic & tied to the world I want to live in.

It’s only getting better!

The first few episodes and getting to know Naomi and Sadie were awesome! The beginning is a great introduction to the world of ditching diet culture and it keeps getting better and better the deeper it goes!! There’s always something that grabs my attention and I can relate to in each episode!! I recommend this podcast every chance I get and I especially love recommending specific episodes to clients. Keep the awesomeness coming ladies! Thank you! 🥰💕✨

An Engaging Convo Among Friends

I found this podcast by complete happenstance. I live in the same area as Naomi and Sadie, and I found them individually on Instagram. I was excited to hear when they started a podcast. It is like a conversation among friends where I learn something each episode and feel validated in my own perspectives while also being challenged. Give it a listen. It’s so worth it!
