137: How to Improve Your Body Image Despite Toxic Diet Culture: A Podcast Takeover with Elizabeth Harris


How can you show up in business or life if your body, or more precisely, how you feel about your body, is holding you back? 

This is something that so many women struggle with. If you think this way, please know that you are not alone. It’s really hard to be a human – especially a female – in the diet culture that we live in. 

Your body is most definitely not a problem. The problem is the toxic diet culture we all live in that tells us there’s a right way or a wrong way to have a body or that promotes unrealistic, largely unattainable, and frankly, ever-changing body ideals.

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. 

Your body is not a fashion statement. We may not be able to change the culture itself, but we can change how we react to it. Elizabeth explores how we can turn inward with science and self-compassion and weather the storm of diet culture.

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • The ideals of bodies through time
  • Turning our focus inward
  • The impact of your thoughts and mindset 
  • Your body is not a problem
  • How to remind yourself about the things that matter
  • How to develop a body gratitude practice
  • The importance of self-compassion 

Remember,  your body is your home. You are so much more than just a body. We’re not here to decorate the earth. We are here to experience and impact it, so don’t forget to offer yourself lots of self-compassion. 

To learn more from Elizabeth, make sure to check out her website and join her Facebook group.  She is also going to be launching a podcast called Wellness Rebranded this week so make sure to watch for it!
