This podcast is an archive and no longer actively being updated. Enjoy this super casual podcast by Caroline Dooner (me, hi!), the author of The F*ck It Diet and Tired as F*ck. Really. It's very casual. Expect rambling, dog barks, and a long chunk in 2017 when I know how to set the correct volume on my microphone. Previously titled The F*ck It Diet Podcast/Radio.
Enjoy these archived episodes from 2016 - 2022, where I chatted about The F*ck It Diet, and all of the things I learned and shared while I was healing my relationship with food. I answered frequently asked questions about extreme hunger, bingeing, mental restriction, emotional eating, exercise, and more, and chatted with lots of experts who study intuitive eating, weight science, metabolism, and body image. This is a podcast for people who want to heal their relationship with food from chronic dieting, and also for people trying to heal from eating disorders.

The F*ck It Diet changed my life, but after writing about it for 10 years, I'm leaving the podcast as a relic, and I'm now writing about other things over at carolinedooner.substack.com, and have a new problematic podcast over there too.
This Podcast is Ending + The Nervous System with Irene Lyon (again)
Big update! The chaos is ending. Listen to this episode's intro for the explanation.
This podcast is about to become an archive of old episodes, dedicated to The F*ck It Diet. But before it ends, I need one more chaotic moment: having to repost this episode that I already posted last month. Why? After all of that, trying to merge my old podcast into substack, I decided instead, to "split" my podcasts again, and leave The F*ck It (Diet) Podcast as it's own, standalone archive, that's specific to the food healing journey. This way, it will better be able to support new people who are reading the book, or just finding the information for the first time.
But because I had the podcast merged for a few months over on substack, there were a few episodes that were posted on the new substack feed, that were not posted on the old feed. My episode with Irene on our nervous systems is one of them, so now that I've "split" the podcasts, it has to be "reposted" over here again, if I want it to be on this feed. And, I think this episode is really relevant to "The Emotional Part" of The F*ck It Diet. So I want it to be here! You may have already listened to my conversation with Irene back when I posted it last month! If that's the case, you can just listen to my new intro where I explain why I'm ending this podcast, and starting fresh somewhere else.
My new podcast will be over at carolinedooner.substack.com (there, you can find the actual podcast link listings. So if you want to find my new podcast on spotify or apple, you're going to have to separately follow me over there!)
Also! If you've listened to my conversation with Irene already, she is currently enrolling her yearly program Smart Body, Smart Mind through September 19th, 2022. If you've been wanting to go deep on nervous system and trauma work, make sure to check it out. To get some of her trainings for free, check out her free video series (it's like 2 hours worth of video lessons!).
My Conversation with Irene
Today I am sharing my conversation with Irene Lyon, a trauma expert, educator, and trained somatic practitioner. We talk about some of the basics of the nervous system, the body holding onto trauma, and some myths and misconceptions about how healing works.
If you’ve read The F*ck It Diet or Tired as F*ck, you know how passionate I am about this method of healing, even though… I have been thinking about how much I should be getting back into focusing on it... And, as I say at the end of the episode, I actually just now am back into focusing on it. I just took Irene’s 21 Day Nervous System Tune Up. And I love it all so much, that I am now an affiliate for it.
What that means is, if you use my link for her program, and sign up, I will get a commission.
As I mentioned above, Irene is currently enrolling her yearly program Smart Body, Smart Mind through September 19th, 2022. If you've been wanting to go deep on nervous system work, make sure to check it out! To go through some of her trainings for free, check out her free trauma healing video series (it's like 2 hours worth of video lessons!)

Cancel Culture Chat – with Seerut Chawla
Note: This episode was actually recorded for my other podcast, Problematic. But I originally recorded the conversation when, for a short time, my podcasts were merged. So don't let the outtro confuse you!
Today I’m sharing my conversation with Seerut Chawla. We talk about her brief foray into cancelling someone on the internet, her change of heart, and both of our experiences waking up to the insanity and cult dynamics of cancel culture… It’s a good one!

Leaving Fundamentalism and Finding Trauma Healing
Today's episode is a conversation with Lindsey Lockett, trauma educator and coach, and she tells her story of how she left Fundamentalist Christianity, the fallout in her body and mind of living so long in such a binary belief system, and how she found trauma healing and nervous system work. It's an amazing story, and I can't wait for you to hear it!

Diet & Purity Culture in the Church
Today I am sharing my conversation with Leslie Schilling, MA, RDN, CSCS, CEDRDS-S, where she talks about diet culture and purity culture in the church (and how is mirrors our culture at large!). We also chat about Gwen Shamblin, the infamous "Christian" cult leader, and the way the bible was (mis)interpreted.
Though, today's episode is from the perspective how to change the mindset in the church from a focus on purity, to one of love, acceptance, and "grace" (a word Leslie breaks down in the conversation!). This episode is for all people, regardless of your religion, because the parallels run so deep.
And next episode will be a different conversation of leaving Fundamental Christianity and finding trauma healing.

When Anti-Diet Culture Becomes Culty Too
Is the anti-diet world culty too? Yes. It can be. (Anything can be!)
Therapist and Coach Catie Lynch and I unpack extremism in the anti-diet world, black and white thinking, “cancel” culture and mob mentality online, as well as what true healing from an eating disorder looks like beyond outrage.
“Can we focus on actually creating the life that diet culture took from us, instead of spending the rest of our life angry at diet culture?”
I also talk about microdosing, medical marijuana, restless leg syndrome, human design (we are both “projectors”), and MORE.

Also! My second book is out! You can read more about extremism and my restless legs in Tired as F*ck
Anxiety and The F*ck It Diet
Hello! Today's episode is short and sweet... I'm starting off with a 10 minute audio-chapter from the audiobook of Tired as F*ck. And, that audio clip just so happens to be about anxiety, and what it's like to be a person with a normal amygdala (aka, not a psychopath).
Then, I go over the three different "categories" of anxiety you will deal with when healing your relationship with food and weight!
This episode is brought to you by Tired as F*ck, coming out on February 8th! Read the beginning! Get your pre-order bonuses!

Speaks truth to the Woke
I love this podcast and I LOVE Caroline Dooner. She is slaying dragons with this podcast and on her Instagram. Finally someone young and smart who will ASK THE QUESTIONS about Biden’s food price hikes, “vaccine” injuries, everyday toxins, the dangers of 5G… Super knowledgeable and building an amazing community of un-woke humans!
