Rank #5: 28- Ditching the Scale, Overcoming Body Dysmorphia, and Learning to Trust Yourself Around Food with Sophie Bertrand

Podcast cover
Read more

Can you develop an eating disorder and body dysmorphia even when you're in an already "thin ideal" body? YES! 

No matter your body size or shape, we are all vulnerable to the impact of culture on how we view ourselves. Eating disorders are mental illnesses, and we cannot determine someone's emotional suffering based on what someone looks like. 

In today's episode, I talk with dietitian, food blogger, and eating disorders professional, Sophie Bertrand.

We discuss:

  • Why Sophie became an eating disorders dietitian
  • How Sophie's relationship with food progressed through her career training
  • How her definition of health now includes chocolate and cake
  • Effect of perfectionism on development of ED's
  • How body obsessions can drive food obsessions
  • How body size does not determine mental suffering
  • How Sophie stopped weighing herself
  • How healing her own body image helped her have more compassion for others
  • and so much more!

Sophie gives some really great actionable tips for helping you find what foods you actually enjoy!

Rank #12: 21- Contentment Without Weighing Yourself with Nickie Snyder

Podcast cover
Read more

Aside from actually being “thin”, that feeling we are all craving is contentment. We want to get to a point where we just FEEL good about our bodies. We are told that the feeling will come once we lose the weight, but more and more women are coming forward and telling us that this isn’t exactly the case. There are so many other things that we can invest in that will bring a sense of pride and there are so many more aspects of ourselves that will give us a full and meaningful life beyond what number pops up on a scale.

In this ep, you'll also hear:

  • My interview with podcast host, Nickie Snyder and how she has found contentment for her body
  • Nickie’s journey with Weight Watchers
  • Size, what it means to Nickie and how people “in the middle” handle life in the world of extreme’s
  • What she wasn’t willing to sacrifice for the sake of “thin”
  • How to find contentment in your own life with three actionable tips
  • and more!

I'd venture to guess that when you have been in a GREAT romantic relationship, you didn't "have an issue" with food or your body. It's super common!

  • How our love and romantic life affects our relationship with food and our bodies
  • Why Love can be a barrier to full recovery
