Diet Brain vs. Formal Dieting
Bridget and Dana discuss the difference between formal dieting and having a diet brain, and why it's not enough to just stop dieting to heal our relationship with food. We have to actively work on healing the diet brain, which is possible to have without being on formal diet, or counting points, calories, carbs, macros, etc.
I’m Afraid I Won’t Stop Eating if I Stop Dieting
In this episode Bridget and Dana address the incredibly common fear around letting go of dieting. You might think that if you’re allowed to eat anything and everything that you want, you’ll never stop eating. But there’s a research-backed phenomenon that all but ensures that if you’re practicing the 10 principles of intuitive eating in earnest, you will not, in fact, want pizza and cookies every, single day. You might even get sick of them and crave vegetables in the very near future.
Beauty Culture: Should I Care About How I Look?
Bridget and Dana talk beauty culture and ask: where's the line between a sense of pride in your appearance and harmful self-objectification? Does the patriarchy win every time we curl our hair? Should we stop shaving our legs? It's normal and okay to care about how you look, but how far are you willing to go in order to fit into beauty standards to seek validation from others? Essentially in this episode we're asking ourselves, and you, a lot of thought-provoking questions about beauty culture.
Food Freedom Story: Theresa

21+ Real Life Benefits of Intuitive Eating
In this episode, Bridget and Dana dive into the real life benefits of intuitive eating, rambling listicle style.

Back to School Vibes: How to Harness the Power of a Fresh Start without Dieting
In this episode, Bridget and Dana explain why we're all feeling those back to school, fresh start vibes, and how to harness them in order to *actually* take better care of yourself, if that's a goal for you, instead of slipping back into the painful diet cycle.
Amazing, feel-good resource 💜
Dana & Bridget are the real deal when it comes to Intuitive Eating and making peace with food & bodies. I love listening to their honest (and funny!) chats, always feel like I learned something, and truly enjoy their podcast. I’m an IE therapy & recommend this to clients often.
Just found! Loving!!!
Listening to 4 reasons you eat when you’re not hungry, SPOT ON!!! I’m only 4 months into intuitive eating and your episode nailed it!! This is 100% my experience after two decades of dieting & being under my set point range!
Wise and refreshing!
This podcast is so helpful! It unearths beliefs (and lies) we tell ourselves about our bodies, eating choices, and fitness practices that are insidious, oppressive and damaging. I consider myself pretty self-aware on these topics, but I’ve been surprised and delighted by the new insights and information Bridget and Dana bring to the table. Very freeing! Their wisdom really helps me access the simple joy of just being in my body!
