Body Kindness

This is a show about health, not weight loss. It’s time to redefine what it means to pursue health, where your well-being matters more than your weight. When you practice Body Kindness®, you create a more satisfying life by being good to yourself. Learn how self-compassion and acceptance help you cultivate a “caregiver” voice and quiet the “inner critic”. HAES Dietitian and Certified Exercise Physiologist Rebecca Scritchfield and her guests have interesting conversations about the cultural influences that keep you stuck in “diet prison” and how you can break free to create meaningful changes in your life. Instead of dieting, you’ll practice self-care, including better sleep, flexible eating patterns, having more fun, and moving in way that feels good, not punishing. Regular guest Bernie Salazar, a former Biggest Loser “winner” shares why he’s happier and healthier as a fat man.

#3 - Learn & Grow Part 3 - Reflections on Intuitive Eating from Principles to Practice

Our original interview was released in 2016 and replaced with this update. In the third episode of our Body Kindness for Beginners podcast series “Learn and Grow” Bernie and I reflect on ways in which the practice of intuitive eating has helped him reject dieting and we discover new growth opportunities going forward. Tune in if you’ve ever felt confused about what the heck intuitive eating is and why it may be exactly what you need in your life. (Hint, the goal is to heal your relationship to food, not lose weight). So what is intuitive eating? It’s not a diet. It’s a way to reconnect with your body and listen to its signals, so you can meet your body’s needs. It’s not a quick fix – it’s a beautiful practice that you can learn and use for the rest of your life. Here’s what we talked about...

#51 - Why Diets are Bad for Your Brain with Neuroscientist and TED Talk Superstar, Sandra Aamodt, PhD

Neuroscientist Sandra Aamodt's TED Talk "Why dieting usually doesn't work" has been viewed over 4 million times. She really didn't want to do a TED Talk, but she was so driven to put a science-based, anti-diet book out into the world that she marched her introverted self onto the TED stage, stood on the big red dot, said what we needed to hear, and eventually landed her book 'Why Diets Make Us Fat: The Unintended Consequences of Our Obsession with Weight Loss'. Tune in and listen to Sandra and I discuss why dieting and the brain are NOT friends and why dieting will never support a human's healthy brain function. Sandra explains how and why body weight is regulated by the brain (thank goodness!) and that may mean (gasp) that fat people will be fat no matter what they do! And people who diet are likely to end up regaining the weight they lost (and then some). We get into genetic factors that impact our weight and have a laugh at the idea of canceling our'memberships' to the BS-measurement, otherwise known as the BMI. You'll hear us talk about stress, the pros and cons of cortisol, the value of sleep, and why mindful eating is such an essential part of self-care. By the time you're done listening to this show, you will either feel super pumped about your commitment to never diet again -- OR you'll realize that dieting is a losing game, you'll probably get angry, (I did!) and then you'll get to work at creating your better life with Body Kindness.

#55 - Resilience through an Eating Disorder with Christy Harrison, host of Food Psych Podcast, HAES Dietitian, and Intuitive Eating Counselor

Have you ever felt like your body has betrayed you? Bad things happen to good people all the time. Yet when we go through something painful, we often lack the self-compassion and optimism it takes to find our way out of our suffering. What makes some people more resilient than others? Their mindset -- believing they will get through the adversity and in some cases, believing the difficulty changes them for good. Resilience is a process we can all learn. The power of stories experiences. That’s why I created this Body Betrayal series. I’m bringing you the stories of people who have gone through difficulties with their bodies and found their way to a better well-being through self-compassion and acceptance.

#45 - Is This a Diet Too? Why 'Healthy Eating' is So Confusing for Non-Dieters, with HAES Dietitian Glenys Oyston and Body Image Coach Sarah Vance

In this episode I talk with fellow HAES dietitian Glenys Oyston and body image coach Sarah Vance about the confusing and difficult space between “non dieting” and “healthy eating”. There’s a process to changing to a non-dieter, which includes letting go of food rules, and then working with your individual food preferences as you build intuitive eating skills and learn how to “feel your feels”. We go many different places in this conversation from the “Unicorn Drink Craze” that showed us how sugar phobic our culture really is today and how emotional eating can be informative and even helpful in life, especially while you’re overcoming dieting and working on coping with negative emotions in ways other than food. Overall, we complain that dieting has ruined the idea of healthy eating because it labels individual foods as good or bad vs one’s overall pattern of eating, which literally can include all foods. We agree that “healthy eating” is highly individual and should not be tied to weight. We close out our chat about weight stigma and the fact that we wouldn’t be so obsessed with “healthy eating” and dieting if we didn’t have fat phobia. Plus we reaffirm that giving up on dieting is not giving up on health (total MYTH!) and in fact giving up on dieting is one of the most important things you can do for mental health. About Glenys Glenys Oyston is a registered dietitian and eating coach who dares women to stop dieting and start living. As someone who struggled with her weight and feeling out-of-control around food for years, she knows exactly what others are going through and how to get them to food freedom. She coaches people in person in her Los Angeles office, online or by phone through one-on-one and group coaching programs.

#13 - Can You Be Body Positive And Want To Lose Weight?

Today we’re talking about body positivity and weight loss. Can you be body positive and want to lose weight? Whether it’s the election or TV shows, there’s been an explosion of stories about weight stigma, self acceptance in the news and social media. We think it’s great that this conversation is growing so we’re diving right into this timely topic today. Here's what we talked about: What is body positivity? There’s not a singular approved definition. It’s a way of life and philosophy of respecting our bodies and treating them well that had its origins in the fat acceptance community. Body positivity is trending so much that I’m nervous it may jump the shark. There is growing chatter about mixing weight loss diet culture messages with body positivity messages and it’s making some people angry. Those who started the body positivity movement are moving to terms like “fat activism” and “fat positive” to ensure there are safe spaces where you can be fat, not just a fat person trying to lose weight. We talked about the tendency to “give credit” to weight loss when we achieve goals. For example if you make lifestyle changes and happen to lose some weight and have less knee pain, you attribute that to the weight loss rather than your actions. This associates knee problems with weight when people of all sizes have knee problems! There’s a lot of nuance there, but if we need to understand that weight loss may not be a helpful conversation in a body positivity space. My view is you can't control your honest desires and "wants" - they are thoughts and feelings - but you can accept you feel that way, acknowledge that diet culture and society plays a role in creating them, but focus on the actions you would take - losing a certain amount of weight is not an action. So you can be body positive, reject dieting (and want to lose weight at the same time) and focus on a healthy approach to habits. If you lose weight you're not kicked out of the body positive club. We discussed our mixed feelings about the new show This Is Us which has a fat character Kate. I was disappointed that Kate’s weight battle was such a part of her story, when it looked like she is buying foods to binge eat - not healthy at any size! Bernie hated that her fridge was full of junk food and felt it was extreme and cliched. I loved that her family does not judge her based on her weight. When she asked her brother to tell her to lose the weight, he did not. Kate’s own voice is the loudest that her weight is a problem. I would like to see the real problems get addressed - her mental health. If you Google “Trump weight stigma” there are 340,000 results with articles on fat shaming, weight bias and weight stigma from major media outlets. I’d never have predicted that this election would put these topics on the agenda. These issues go beyond partisan politics and I’m grateful they’re getting attention and entering our conversations as we need to be aware of the harm of weight bias and stigma.

#44 - How Can I Still Love My Body If I Want To Get to a Healthier Place? with Registered Dietitian Holley Grainger

Holley Grainger is a registered dietitian -- "the expert", but even experts struggle. Holley e-mailed me privately and asked about a family member who wanted to try the HCG diet (on top of the other dozens she tried that have not worked) and I asked her to join me on a podcast to discuss it. In this episode Holley opens up about her genetically larger body compared to her peers, her weight gain during her fertility treatments that gave her two healthy girls. "How can I still love my body at the same time while I want to get to a healthier place", she asks. Weight concerns make sense because our culture sucks. I help Holley understand that diet culture keeps her stuck in an "I’m not good enough" mental place and continually believing her body is a "problem." I share a story about a client who was body shamed by her gynecologist and the Kevin Hall NIH research on NBC’s The Biggest Loser that shows the metabolic reasons why dieting -- cutting calories and over exercise -- is followed by a “fight back” from the body that leads to weight regain. I also define HAES for Holley (gee, wish we learned this in nutrition school.) Finally, I explain how I would help her family member, if this person was a client of mine, essentially to help her understand there is a process for changing habits and mindset that is weight neutral to improve well-being regardless of any changes to one’s appearance, and even IF the client really wants to lose weight. I’m glad Holley had the courage and interest to speak to me about personal concerns in a public setting. Hopefully it helps you too. Tune in and let me know what you think by leaving a rating or review. About Holley Holley Grainger is a nationally recognized lifestyle, culinary, and nutrition expert.

[Repost] #26 - Be the Expert on Your Body: Intuitive Eating as an act of Body Kindness with Evelyn Tribole, co-author of Intuitive Eating book and workbook

Dieting is unethical. But how do you approach eating if you never want to diet again? By now you probably heard of intuitive eating, but do you see yourself eating intuitively and feeling happier about your relationship to food? The co-creator of Intuitive Eating, Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD wants people to understand what intuitive eating is and is NOT. One big NOT… intuitive eating is not a diet or weight loss plan (though it has been co-opted as such “lose weight with intuitive eating!” (NOPE! Run far and fast from that if you see it advertised.) On this podcast, we chat about how we use intuitive eating as a model for being the expert on your body when it comes to nourishment. We swap client stories of struggles and how we have helped them overcome their challenges. We dig into the research a bit to show the positive, life-enhancing benefits of ditching diets for intuitive eating. We also touch on diet culture and body oppression, especially of fat bodies that get “concern trolled” so often by society…. “Oh, you really DO need to lose weight…. for health.” Nope.

The co-creator of Intuitive Eating, Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD wants people to understand that dieting is associated with weight gain, the opposite of it's promised intention.

We dig into the research a bit to show the positive, life-enhancing benefits of ditching diets for intuitive eating. We also touch on diet culture and body oppression, especially of fat bodies that get "concern trolled" so often by society.... "Oh, you really DO need to lose weight.... for health." Nope.

#66 - How to Do “Body Positivity” with Megan Crabbe (aka BodyPosiPanda), author of Body Positive Power

Megan Crabbe, author of Body Positive Power joins me. In our conversation, we address how difficult real body positivity work can be -- issues of privilege, intersectionality, diversity, and the idea that barely sitting outside “the norm” of weight and beauty is not enough to create necessary change in our culture. Megan says we must watch out for the “trolls,” give compassion to people still entrenched in diet culture, and keep doing this work because it’s helping people.

#41 - Not All Eating Disorders Are 'To The Bone': Discussing ED Stereotypes With Chevese Turner From the Binge Eating Disorder Association

When the Netflix Original 'To the Bone' was released many helping professionals who work with people with eating disorders were not too happy. The primary complaint was concern that (once again) stereotypes for eating disorders would be reinforced by centering the story around a very thin white woman. See here: How Current Eating Disorder Discourse Fails The LGBTQ Community. And How We Can Change That To the Bone: creating eating disorder awareness or doing harm As An Eating Disorder Therapist, I’m Worried After Seeing Netflix’s ‘To The Bone’ Why We Need More ‘Hunger’ And Less ‘To The Bone’ I sat down with Chevese Turner, founder of the Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA) to discuss the myths and misconceptions about who gets eating disorders (we all do) and how we can all do better to identify and help those struggling find recovery. It’s pretty tricky because many people with weight concerns show up to diet programs and weight loss centers when they could have an eating disorder. In this episode we also discuss the appropriateness of using the word “fat” as as descriptor, why we need to acknowledge our privileges, and the story for how Binge Eating Disorder became acknowledged as it’s own eating disorder. (hint: weight stigma and diet culture are major reasons why BED is under diagnosed and treated today). Tune in and let me know what you think by leaving a rating or review. Get to know Chevese Chevese Turner founded the Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA) in June 2008 recognizing the need for an organization to advocate on behalf of individuals affected by binge eating disorder (BED) and the providers who treat them. Turner’s well-rounded career in the health care, pharmaceutical, political and non-profit arenas, as well as her many leadership roles within these fields, prepared her to launch BEDA, the only organization specifically suited to support individuals and treatment professionals managing BED.

#5 - Learn & Grow Part 5 - How Mindfulness Helps You Handle Bad Emotions

Our original interview was released in 2016 and replaced with this update. If you’re new to #BodyKindness our podcast mini-series, Learn and Grow, was made for you. Bernie Salazar and Rebecca Scritchfield reflect on Bernie’s early days saying “bye-bye” to his relationship with The Biggest Loser and diet culture forever! In Episode 5, you’ll hear us discuss mindfulness and the beautiful and subtle ways in which Bernie has been able to embrace mindfulness and emotion regulation skills in his life. Here’s what we talked about... What is mindfulness? It is awareness. It’s about being present in the here and now. Studies have shown we spend only about 5% of our time in the present. I explained that the core of Body Kindness is about trust and a commitment to self awareness - a mindfulness-based practice. This means feeling all our feelings and making room for them all without judgement. Starting a mindfulness practice is simple - you just need to start noticing things in the present moment. Ask yourself one simple question: what the heck is going on? Check out my Grow Better Health Through Mindfulness post for some great and easy-to-do ideas for being more mindful - http://bit.ly/1QwCIJW I explained how mindfulness is the starting point for long-term behavior change. As you notice things without judgement, you can ask yourself questions like - what am I doing? How do I feel about this? How is this impacting what I care about? It can remind you of the benefits of positive action. Mindful.org is one of my favourite resources for mindfulness information and inspiration.

#22 - Why Healthy Eating Should Not Look Like Dieting, Award Winning Chef & Dietitian Ellie Krieger

Is your healthy eating plan really a diet? Most of today’s diets look like healthy recipes touting the benefits of eating wholesome foods, but they also carry with it a bunch of ridiculous (and restrictive) rules. I’m looking at you, “no beans allowed” Paleo lovers. In this episode, I chat with award winning chef, dietitian, and mom Ellie Krieger. She shares how she has been burned by gimmicky weight loss diets from her modeling days and why it’s so important to her to sit down as a family and enjoy a delicious meal together. Ellie shares some fabulous tips for getting food on the table without overthinking it and she helps you understand why a little butter and salt can be a good thing. --- Get to know Ellie Host of the new cooking series “Ellie’s Real Good Food” on Public Television, and well known from her hit Food Network show “Healthy Appetite,” Ellie Krieger is a leading go-to nutritionist in the media today, helping people find the sweet spot where “delicious” and “healthy” meet.

She is a New York Times bestselling, James Beard Foundation and IACP award winning author of five cookbooks, including her most recent, You Have it Made: Delicious, Healthy Do-Ahead Meals.
