We all need a hearty helping of resiliency when it comes to food, nutrition, and body image. The truth is, we live in a toxic diet culture where we are inundated with messages telling us our bodies aren’t good enough or that we are projects that need to be fixed.
We are constantly confronted with unrealistic body ideals and endlessly told that we need to lose weight in order to be healthier and happier or to feel more comfortable and confident.
All of this messaging can make healthy eating overly complicated, stressful, anxiety-inducing, or guilt-inducing. This can make us mistrust our bodies, and it’s no wonder that we are having a hard time feeling resilient when it comes to our food and eating.
In this episode of Leading Lady, we are doing another podcast takeover with Leading Lady Ambassador Elizabeth Harris! She’s a registered dietitian and intuitive eating counselor with a virtual nutrition practice. She empowers women to find peaceful solutions to food and nutrition without dieting or stressing about the scale with intuitive eating and body image healing.
Elizabeth is diving into the topic of resiliency when it comes to our healthy choices. There’s so much information out there that it can be so frustrating and easy to feel like you just can’t do what you are “supposed” to do. Elizabeth is sharing mindset shifts that will help you become more resilient when it comes to your health.
In Today’s Episode We Discuss:
- Why toxic diet culture is taking us away from true health and well-being
- Shifting our focus away from our weight
- Getting clear on steps to opt-out of diet culture
- Understanding that there is no perfect way of eating
- Connecting with your innate eating cues and body wisdom
- Focusing on small changes
- Ditching the scale for good
It’s all about looking at your nutrition through the lens of self-care. It’s not about using nutrition to lose weight, it’s not to get your pre-baby body back, it’s not to fight belly fat in menopause. It’s nutrition to enhance your quality of life.
