Have you heard the saying that in order to change the future, you must understand the past? Well, Kelsey and Heather are diving into the history of dieting and how diet culture became a THING. And it's SUUUUPER interesting!
Not to be total Grinches, but the holidays are a great example of how diet culture ruins everything. Ever been to a party and binged on food, only to feel guilty for weeks after? Or maybe you turned down your favorite foods but obsessed over them the entire time. Heather and Kelsey unpack this idea and offer suggestions to navigate food choices without guilt or shame.
Diet Culture. What is it?? And why are we Dun Dun DUN'ing?? Diet Culture is insidious. It's everywhere. It's baked right in. And it's harmful. We're going to tackle Diet Culture this season, but we're going to start by defining it. Or trying to.
Join Heather today as she chats with Belkis Crowe. Belkis owns her own meal prep service, so she has ALL the tips for faster food prep. She also understands the foundational relationship between food and loving yourself (or someone else!).
Self-care has no definition. For some, it's a spa weekend and facials. But for most of us, it's about foundational habits that keep us at the top of our game. Kelsey and Heather share their tips and own habits for self-care.
This week, Kelsey is joined by Caroline Skelly to talk about the "why" of food addiction. Specifically: trauma. What is trauma? Spoiler alert - we all have trauma, even if it's "just" being called fat when we were kids. Caroline shares the why and how of working through trauma so we can move to what we're seeking: healing.
On today's episode, Heather and Kelsey talk with Jessie Golden. Jessie works with women to get to the bottom of addictive patterns of eating. Rather than using abstinence, she advocates for an intuitive based approach. In the past two episodes, Kelsey and Heather have focused on abstinence from addictive foods. This approach is the other side of the coin and the conversation will get your wheels turning!
Tune in to this week's episode to meet Jessyca Reynolds, hear her story, and learn practical steps to address your food addiction!
When it comes to abstainer/moderator traits, there is no good or bad. These are personality indicators of who we are. The fight comes in when we want to be something we are not. But understanding what these indicators are and making adjustments to our decisions and routines is key to sustainable nutrition changes.
