Love Marc David. He helps you discover the WHY and helps you dig into your thoughts and emotions to discover the problem and the solution.
I like a lot of the message in this podcast I just wish there were more language around Health At Every Size and Intuitive Eating. I don’t think it’s necessary to ask specific weight since those numbers can be triggering for people with disordered eating which I imagine a lot of the audience has.
An Abudance of Information
This podcast is remarkable in so many ways: 1) no matter the topic, Marc is able to make the podcast relevant for many; 2) the topics are interesting and not redundant; 3) he knows how to make people feel comfortable even through a podcast; and 4) he has so much wisdom to share that I have been able to garner many lessons even though I might not have the same exact issue as the person being interviewed. I am learning so much and hope that others take a moment to listen. It's eye-opening, but could also be life-changing. I know it has been for me.
