July 18, 2019 - EP 27: Food Psychology 101: It's All About The "Why" with Joni Seeto

 

 We are asking ourselves the wrong question when it comes to our eating habits. We need to shift our focus to "why" we're eating instead of "what" we're eating. 

It is not uncommon for us to search for happiness in all the wrong places and Joni Seeto was no exception. Joni who struggled binge and emotional eating, falsely thought that she was the only one who couldn't stick to a diet and for years believed she could achieve happiness through external things.

Growing up in Belgium Joni never learned how to process her feelings and used food to cope which ultimately led to being put on a diet from an early age.

Now Joni is an eating psychology coach living in Australia where she works to bring awareness around binge and emotional eating and shares with others how to recover from disordered eating.

Listen to this episode if you are ready to learn:

  • what next steps to take to heal your relationship with food
  • how to stop binge and emotional eating
  • why you need to get curious...

July 11, 2019 - EP 26: Do You Fit Into The Body Positivity Movement?

 
Do I fit into the body positivity movement?
This was a question that haunted me for many years and to be honest I thought the answer was no.
No, I don’t fit it because my body does not resemble the people I see calling themselves body positive in media...therefore I cannot be apart of this popular movement, right?
Well as I moved through my eating disorder recovery I began to see the body positivity movement in a different light and I invite you to explore that with me.
 
In this episode I examine:
  • what it means to be body positive
  • misconceptions around this movement
  • relationship between body positivity and intuitive eating
Listen to this episode if you are ready to discover the meaning behind body positivity and how it can be applied to your life in a real way.

June 27, 2019 - EP 24: How To Find Fulfillment Through Hardship- Sara Silverstein

 

"I went from alcohol and drugs to food to people... subbing in different addictions.... Could I sit with myself and be a little uncomfortable with myself? ” -Sara Silverstein

Sara was living the fast life in New York City where for 6 years she was stuck drinking and being a "disaster party girl", often putting herself in unsafe situations and surrounded by bad people. After hitting a low point she began her recovery journey and quickly found herself in the pursuit of money climbing the corporate America ladder. Her life from the outside looked perfect, the loving boyfriend, the established career, the gorgeous home... yet she felt morally bankrupt. 

In this inspiring  and insightful episode, Sara and I discuss how she turned her life around and became a meditation teacher who through the power of breath, now helps others find out what it means to be connected, fulfilled and happy in their own lives.

June 20, 2019 - EP 23: Want to know what recovery really looks like?

 

I get raw. I get real. I get vulnerable.

I share with you my honest account what some days in recovery feel like in hopes that others feel less alone.

Below are excerpts from this episode.

"My eating disorder was my worst enemy and my best friend. You tell me that anorexia is bad, you tell me that bulimia is bad yet you have the audacity to stand there and look me in the eyes and tell me I look beautiful"

"You have no idea the battle people are fighting because you can't always see an eating disorder, it is not obvious... My 6 pack abs were a reflection of the irony that was the societal image of health. I looked like the epitome of wellness while on the inside being the epitome of sickness."

"Eating disorders are not illnesses of the body but illness the mind. So no it may not look like my body is ill but my mind is. So don't tell me I look beautiful, don't ask how to look like me..."

When we talk about it we remove the shame, we take its power and we heal <3
