    [REPLAY] #51 - Is Intuitive Eating for Everyone?

    Often when we talk about Intuitive Eating with new people or on social media, we hear variations of "I'd love to eat intuitively, but I can't because..."

So this week, we're talking about who gets to practice Intuitive Eating! We're digging into all the nuances of whether or not Intuitive Eating is really for everyone, including: whether you need to lose...

So much love for this podcast!

Naomi and Sadie are good people. I find the folx who are interviewed to be broad-reaching who bring helpful lessons to the topic of fat liberation. Naomi and Sadie themselves are approachable and are providing much-needed community. Love this podcast!

A great and practical addition to anti diet culture

Naomi & Sadie are charmingly themselves in supportive relationship with each other as they walk through the journey of deprogramming from diet culture. They don’t pretend to be perfect, and they give you permission not to be either. Instead, they dig into the ups and downs of finding a new way through intuitive eating and other tools.

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.
