    What does it feel like to not have your mental health be impacted by how your body looks?
     
    In this podcast episode, Colleen talks with Alex Light; body confidence influencer, author and inclusive swimsuit creator about her journey through anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder, her faux-glamorous life as a journalist to her present-day true happiness with her body, her work and her marriage. 
     
    Discover what helped Alex learn to love herself and no longer give a damn about what anyone says about her body. Alex vulnerably shares her journey of learning that her body is ok, right now…it isn’t all about inspirational quotes or running away from triggers. 
     
    We think you’ll be just as shocked as we were when a dermatologist went way-the-hell outside of their lane and be just as thrilled to shop for a swimsuit…even a bikini…after tuning in.

    Can you think of a time that you ate so much of a forbidden food that your stomach was wildly uncomfortable and you were weighed down with heaps of guilt and shame?
     
    What if you kept doing it, even though you were desperate to stop?
     
    In today’s episode, I vulnerably share about my own journey with disordered eating, food rules, and how, later, I learned to break those food rules to finally find food freedom. It wasn’t always pretty: we’ll talk about the rock bottom part, too. I’ll share what perfect storm brewed with my food issues (it includes a wall of cereal) and why I think “just listen to your body” is b******t.

    Beauty Redefined [feat. Dr. Lindsay Kite]

    Beauty Redefined [feat. Dr. Lindsay Kite]

    What is body image, according to an honest-to-goodness expert? We’re talking PhD level expertise. 
     
    This may surprise you, but body image can’t be seen with a mirror. In this episode, we meet Dr. Lindsay Kite, a Ph.D. in female body image, expert, and co-author of More Than A Body with her twin sister and fellow body image expert. You’ll learn (and be disgusted by) how much of what we think of as normal – like bonding over our bodies and what makes us uncomfortable – is learned behavior. Good news: we can unlearn it too. Tune in to find out how awareness is the first step and what to do next to cultivate body image resilience.

    Food is Fun Again [feat. Erin Morrissey Of Erin Lives Whole]

    Food is Fun Again [feat. Erin Morrissey Of Erin Lives Whole]

    We don’t talk about Bruno (I mean, mental illness).
     
    In this week’s podcast episode, we follow Erin Morrissey through her tumultuous journey of disordered eating and compulsive over-exercising through her recovery and the launch of her wildly successful food blog, Erin Lives Whole. Today, Erin knows how to nourish her body and has learned to love the experience of eating and sharing food with her fiancé, friends, and family…not to mention her multitude of global followers, including a banana bread baker in Ukraine. In this episode, you’ll hear her candid feedback about why having a mental illness is kind of like having a little friend and what parts of her recovery felt the most uncomfortable…and also the most important. You’ll also learn who encouraged her to start her blog, to begin with, and what life feels like in recovery from her eating disorder…does it ever fully go away? You’ll need to tune in to find out. We are talking about Bruno!

    Erin’s favorite recipes from her blog are her one-pot pasta and tahini brownies. Check ‘em out below!
