Today on the podcast I have Julie Satterfeal who is an anti-diet and weight-inclusive registered dietitian, author, speaker, podcast host, and coach.
She is dedicated to building empathy to break down the shame-based culture of dieting, freeing individuals up to create authentic health and a positive relationship with food and their body.
Today Julie and I discuss:
Victoria Evans Science-Based Intuitive Eating Coach
When you see a photo of yourself and think that you should be skinnier, prettier, etc... I want you to know that you aren't seeing your own beauty.
Quite literally because you can't!
Your energy, your light, your personality, your everything cannot be captured.
Here is the thing my gorgeous girl, you will never truly see yourself.
You will only see photos or videos but you'll never actually see yourself in real life.
This kinda blows my mind thinking about this.
Consider the picture you took of the sunset.
It is never as beautiful as the real thing, am I right?
That photo of yourself that you hate cannot capture the infinite beauty that is you.
You are enough as you are and as you will change.
A photo is a snapshot in time, not a snapshot of your worth.
So take the photo, record the video because we are simply capturing the memories.

Recognize that body dissatisfaction is greatest in times of high stress.
What you think is a body problem is actually a life problem.
When you find yourself unhappy with how you look, ask yourself if it might be about something else.
Are you blaming your body for something that is not really about your body?
Notice that in life when things feel out of our control we try to control things that we feel we can control. This often looks like trying to control how we eat and how we look.
Simply be aware of this and note that we will never be free by implementing control.
Get curious and compassionate. Your body was never and is never the problem.

I was interviewed on an awesome podcast last week...
Your Food Freedom Tip
Regulate your nervous system to lower stress and be more mindful!
Take a second right now and just breathe.
Inhale for 4, hold for 7, exhale for 8.
Do that 4 more times.
You’ve just triggered your vagus nerve and gotten yourself into a parasympathetic state (rest, digest and heal).
Take breathing breaks like this regulates your nervous system and allows you to connect to your body (and eat intuitively).
