So helpful!

I just discovered this podcast a week ago (date of submission) and have learned so much!

I was feeling down and like garbage, because of a diet I was on that was not working for me. I looked up the diet and found an episode on the company (as well as the other diet company I’ve tried before) and so much made sense! From there, I listened to more episodes about intuitive eating, knowing my body, and paying attention to my body and what it wants. Eating when I’m hungry, having a better relationship with food and more.

So glad I came across it! Looking forward to more episodes!

One of my new favorite podcasts!

Super fun way to delve into topics you never thought to question. I love the dynamic between the hosts and am learning so much about my own body, health, and how to navigate my wellness journey.

Fellow RD Fan!

One of my favorite podcasts! It’s educational, timely, and I always feel like I’m part of Emily & Vanessa’s conversations. Myths are debunked with a whole health approach avoiding the pseudo wellness that is all too common within our diet culture. I’m also a dietitian and a big fan! I love sharing this podcast as a resource to others as well.
