Episode’s Key Points:
Nutrition Myth: Calories in, calories out is the key to weight loss.—>Fat phobia is actually at the root of this false message
Intuitive Eating will help bring about peace with food and your body through rebuilding connections with your body and allowing food to be consumed for both fuel and pleasure.
Taking steps to dismantle our fat phobic system and move towards body liberation is key to promoting health for us all.
Our worldview of bodies is broken, not our bodies.
Research shows that diets don’t work for most people.
Saying someone is addicted to food is like saying they’re addicted to oxygen, water, warmth, and sleep —>we need all of these to stay alive; “We can’t be addicted to something we need to survive” –Amy Pershing
Connect with as many fat positive people as you are able in order to help move towards body autonomy and body liberation.

Episode’s Key Points:
We know that diets don’t work long-term… and yet, the New Year brings the tempting diet message to the forefront, especially for those of us in larger bodies that face weight stigma.
What is intuitive eating? How can it help us to find Food Peace™?
The more we try to restrict, the more we feel chaotic around food, and the more likely we are to experience weight gain and eating disorders.
This process of Food Peace™ is SO much harder if we live in a larger body!
Diets are this big, seductive fantasy designed to keep us stuck in ideas around what makes us worthy.
Let’s find a way to make our bodies acceptable right NOW.
Diets also hold this idea of hope for connection and acceptance, which is part of what makes it so tempting.
I believe in body liberation and body autonomy… you can do what you want with your body! But I still encourage you, when you feel the pull of dieting, to consider what triggered that thought process. Investigate it, and if the root of it is yearning to connect with others, consider that connection is what you really want, not weight loss.
Working towards radical self-acceptance can feel isolating! Remember that part of the seduction of dieting is hope for connection and acceptance to and from others.
People in larger bodies are often praised for seeking out weight loss. It can help you feel more accepted and create a mode of connection… but that doesn’t mean it’s the right way forward.
It’s possible that diets are trying to help you meet unmet needs of acceptance and connections. Diving deeper into the WHY is so important!!
Shame is likely a part of this as well, so investigate that and unwrap the true motivations behind this urge.
