Rank #9: Ep 022 Why focusing on your set point weight is damaging
In this episode we share with you why focusing on your set point weight is damaging.
As ex dieters and now fully intuitive eaters, we know you cannot become free around food without letting go of trying to control your weight (SPOILER ALERT: you dont have control over it anyway).
Many people think if they stop obsessing over weight loss they will all of a sudden gain a bunch of weight, that is not how it works. Obsessing over it is actually what’s keeping you in the restrict/binge cycle which is actually what has you gain weight overtime.
This is not to say weight gain is bad, but if your main goal is to lose weight, obsessing over it is not the way to go about it!
You may think you are eating intuitively but if you are still terrified of weight gain or thinking about how IE might help you lose weight, you’re not, this is just another diet.
In Intuitive Eating you’ve probably heard of the weight set point, this is discussed in intuitive eating because when you tune into your body instead of being on the diet rollercoaster your body WILL find a happy place to land, this is rarely your “goal weight” but it is a place your body can be comfortable and maintain for a long time.
Your set point weight can be less than it is now, more or the same, it doesn't matter, it’s about finding stability NOT finding weight loss.
This is where things can get tricky because people think, oh i've let go of focusing on weight loss, now i'm just waiting to get to my set point weight….. This is the same thing.
NOTE: Your set point weight will change over time, from aging, circumstances, pregnancies, hormones etc.
You will learn the reasons why waiting for that infamous set point weight is preventing you from finding freedom and balance with food and your body.

Rank #10: Ep 050 - The only way to accept yourself now AND work towards goals
Does accepting yourself scare you?
"Am I giving up?" "Will I ever be able to work towards goals ever again?"
The real question is -- how can we find peace in the moment and have some dang goals in life to work towards?
THIS is how - and honestly, it's the only way to achieve this balance.

Rank #14: Ep 036 - The Truth About Your Weight
We did a poll on our Instagram asking about the #1 concern when becoming an Intuitive Eater and weight gain was pretty much the only answer.
Diet culture has really taken a toll on us when we would rather obsess and worry about food all day than have the possibility that we may gain some weight (not that that possibility isn't there with dieting but the diet industry likes to pretend that weight gain doesn't exist in dieting).
Here are some ways that you can work around these fears AND the truth about your weight.
