In Love Your Bodd, Heather Boddy sits down with artists, activists, and health/fitness professionals to discuss body image, race, and how our insecurities make us who we are. The lack of representation in the arts and media is overwhelming. It's time to hold up a mirror to the industry and talk about how it can affect us. It's also time to hold a mirror up to ourselves and truly love that person we see staring back at us. Do you love your bodd?

Naomi S is a college student who has struggled with her relationship with food and exercise since 8th grade. She was diagnosed with anorexia and was told that if she reached a certain weight, everything would be okay... but that REALLY didn't address any of her deeper issues. 

She then discovered Body Positivity on Instagram and started learning as much as she could about Diet Culture and realized that it wasn't a problem with HER, it was a problem with SOCIETY. And that's when she started her instagram account Diet Culture Sucks

Hear her story today!!

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome back, Lovers! 

This week on Love Your Bodd, Heather sits down with Bryan D - A daytime accountant who also teaches Group Exercise and has built a brand for himself in the fitness industry. 

  • We talk about his fitness career and how the brand he got started with made him feel like he would be nothing without them. 
  • We talk about the affect that social media has had on his body image & his relationship with food and how he overcame that comparison and found balance. 
  • We talk about his sexuality and his struggle to express himself as gay growing up in the south with religious parents. We also dig deep into his compartmentalized relationship with his parents. 
  • But his final message is the most important - Be Yourself!

Rank #18: 75 - Megan Y: Common Costly Lifestyle Change Mistakes

Podcast cover
Read more

Hi Lovers! Megan Yelaney is BACK! YAY!! She's been on the podcast a couple times before - her first full episode is titled "Protect Your Mind" and in that interview we dive deep into her journey with exercise and becoming a health/fitness coach.

In THIS Episode, we discuss the many ways her life has changed since then by having clients "Ditch the Diet" and find ways to eat that work best for them. One way she has done that is through incorporating Intermittent Fasting - which we discuss in minor detail. See reference links for more info. 

We also discuss the THREE most common - and also most costly mistakes that people make when they decide to take on a new lifestyle - 

3 Costly Mistakes People Make When Trying to Create a "Healthy" Lifestyle:

1. GOING ALL IN RIGHT AWAY: Having an "all or nothing" mentality inevitably ends up making you feel like a failure after the smallest human mistakes. Baby steps are the way to go. 

2. UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS: Things take longer than you think they will.

3. TRY TO GO IT ALONE: Accountability is KEY. Having others to help you out is not only awesome motivation but it also makes the process more FUN!

Rank #19: 74 - Jenna D: You Don't Need To Look A Certain Way | Body Positivity and Fat Acceptance in the Fitness Industry

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome back, Lovers! 

In today's episode of Love Your Bodd you are going to hear from a body positive personal trainer named Jenna! She's been a personal trainer for 11 years but it hasn't always been so "body positive." 

Jenna has a unique story of gaining weight to improve her health - both mentally and physically. As a personal trainer, she felt she needed to maintain a certain look: flat stomach, no body fat, size zero. Luckily, her discovery of Body Positivity opened up her eyes to a whole new world and way of living. She went from a size zero, miserable, living off supplements with no energy to a size 14/16, intuitively eating and moving, improved energy, and happily/healthily enjoying life. 

Let's listen to and explore her story together. 

Here is a call to action to all fitness professionals: WHERE are my true Body Positive fitness pros at?! Give Heather and Jenna a shout out so they can add you to their arsenal of warriors promoting body positivity in the fitness industry. Moving because you love it, not as punishment. Taking the shame out of gym setting. Taking the need to track every single thing out of the equation. WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!

The organization F.I.T.4ALL (previous love your bodd guest) certainly stands for this. As does another previous Love Your Bodd guest, Shanna Tyler. Now that I'm thinking about it, many previous LYB guests are. Such as Megan Yelaney and Sam Darby! But we need more and we need to be connected!! Jenna and I need a network of Body Positive connections we can send people to all over the world!
