This week we are diving into a post we shared on the value of keeping food IN your house. This is something that worries a lot of people and when we posted this we received a lot of great responses: BOTH: People who agree and have experienced the magic of being able to have food in the house and not worrying about it (particularly the desserts and snacks they used to binge on) AND Those who disagree and state that they just cannot keep food in the house without obsessing over it or bingeing...

3 roles YOU play in dismantling diet culture Welcome to this week’s episode of How to Love Your Body We are talking about YOUR role in dismantling diet culture. We all wish diet culture would not be here. We might feel like a victim of it, fair enough. It’s inhumane, it’s unfair, it’s harmful.   People are working hard to dismantle it - through legislation, through education, through activism…. But do we just sit around and wait for the world to change? That doesn’t feel very empowered. So...

Welcome to How to Love Your Body, on today’s episode we are talking about how to address fatphobic family members. We actually get this question a lot which makes sense because most people have been ingrained with diet culture. So once you are trying to do the work to get out of diet culture and learn Intuitive Eating and UnDieting - it may be really challenging to be around family members who are still constantly talking about either their weight / your weight , what diet they are on or...

Welcome to How to Love Your Body - on today’s episode we are talking about Intuitive Eating on your period or during PMS. That’s right, we are going there today. We have seen many women post about feeling guilty with the cravings and amount of food they eat during PMS or while on their period.  We first want to say we are not experts in this area - if you have irregular cycles, PCOS, endometriosis, etc - this is not a replacement for professional guidance. There are amazing resources you can...

Welcome to How to Love Your Body on today’s episode we are going to be talking about Intuitive Drinking - we aren’t just talking about drinking alcohol, we are talking about drinking anything! We get that in diet culture the only thing “acceptable” is drinking water or low cal/ zero calorie drinks and there are a lot of rules around water too! When becoming an Intuitive Eater and UnDieter there is unconditional permission to eat AND there is also unconditional permission to drink.  We do hear...

Welcome to How to Love Your Body, the podcast that guides you out of diet culture, into a lifestyle of intuitive eating and towards a life of wellness without the obsession. A big concern for many people is that the first phase of this work can feel a little “unhealthy” at times. Eating more than usual and often foods that you didn't allow yourself to eat before. Many people take a break from working out as well. All of this PLUS the idea that you’re letting go of the ideal body you've been...

 Welcome to How to Love Your Body - on this week’s episode we are talking about Intuitive Eating Burnout. How to handle it. And what to do if you are feeling the overload. Let’s first start off by discussing what Intuitive Eating burnout is- this is when you feel like your life feels consumed by trying to listen to your hunger signals, figure out if the diet mentality is talking or if it’s truly your intuition. It’s listening to every IE podcast, reading every book, and ingesting as much IE...

Welcome to this week’s episode of How to Love Your Body. Today we are discussing the worry so many people are having about going back into the world as the pandemic restrictions begin to ease in many places. Firstly, don’t feel guilty if you’re feeling uneasy about getting back into the world because you’ve gained weight, because we’ve all been taught to think this way our whole lives BUT isn’t that horrible, that our society is so fatphobic that we are more worried about surviving a pandemic...

Welcome to how to love your body, today we are talking about how to stop caring what people think.  This is a big part of what keeps people stuck in the diet cycle - worrying about what other people think can really fuel the fire. People will say, I’m doing this for me, it’s not about what others think but since we live in a culture that is so obsessed with thinness and looks it’s almost impossible to untangle what YOU really want from what our society has taught us we are meant to...

Today we are rating and reviewing the 3 worst diets disguised as intuitive eating in 2021. Lets dive right in because we have lots to discuss: Coming in third place:   2B Mindset This is a diet (yes a diet) from Beachbody. The creator has her own weight loss story and uses this to sell the program.  A lot of the messaging does sound so appealing – never be hungry and still lose weight, live your life and still lose weight, it sounds so good. Honestly even when I read it I have a moment of...

Welcome to How to Love Your Body - on today’s episode we are going to be talking about “weight loss for health / weight loss to relieve physical pain.” We get this question a lot - It seems as though people want to justify their weight loss if it’s for health - so let’s talk about this.  No matter what the reason is for wanting to lose weight - dieting/ pursuing weight loss doesn’t work for 80-95% of the population. This means that if you are focusing on weight loss to improve blood work or...

Welcome to How to Love Your Body - I’m Lauren and this is Jenna. On today’s episode we are going to be talking about eating at night when you’re alone. We wanted to talk about this because this specific theme has come up a handful of times in our community in The UnDiet Collective Intuitive Eating App.  We get why eating at night when you’re alone feels like a “habit” you want to stop. Maybe there is even some shame that comes up around night time eating - it might feel secretive and like...

Welcome to How to Love Your Body on Today’s episode we are going to be talking about how to tell if you are listening to your body or listening to your head. There are so many tiny nuances in IE and this is one of them. This is actually a really important distinction between the two. Yes our body and our brains come together and make decisions - so really we are using both when choosing what we want to eat.  But if we skip our body's input when choosing food that is when we most likely hear...

Hello and welcome to How to love your body, welcome to our first episode of 2021! Today we are talking about new year’s resolutions why we keep doing them even when they don’t work and what we can do instead! 1. We’re sold the idea of a fresh start when the calendar turns to January, we think things will be different this time, the things in our life we don’t like will shift and we will be new people! (Also being told that weight loss is life changing doesn’t help) The first step here is just...

Welcome to how to love your body, on today’s episode we are talking about nutrition knowledge. One thing people comment to us often is “shouldn’t people still know about nutrition though? Isn’t it important to know what’s in your food etc”? And in theory yes that would make sense. But let’s look at how things are right now. As a dieter how much nutrition “information” do you have? Do you know a lot about food, what’s “healthy” and what is “best” to eat? And how has that been for you? Has it...

Welcome to How to Love Your Body - today we are talking about a concept that was created by Byron Katie - it’s all about questioning our thoughts and figuring out who we would be/ what would we feel like without the thoughts that cause us misery and suffering. This relates perfectly with our thoughts about food and our bodies.   It’s about questioning these thoughts and asking yourself if they are true. A big reason humans endure so much suffering in their thoughts is because they think...
