Imagine a graph with two lines. One indicates happiness, the other tracks how you feel about your body. If you’re like millions of people, the lines do not intersect. But what if they did? 

It’s normal to feel and experience an array of emotions which sometimes trigger a downward spiral. What if instead of reaching for food we practice Body Kindness. From downward spiral to upward spiral, Rebecca Scritchfield, RD teaches us to use radical selfacceptance and Body Kindness to never diet again! 

In this episode I discuss 

  • Why you should focus on well-being, not weight
  • The real reason why we keep searching for the solution that will fix our “body”
  • What’s wrong with some of the popular diets
  • What is Body Kindness?
  • The concept of Spiral down versus Spiral up

Last episode of Ask Me, I answered a question from a Facebook follower, “The more I focus on losing the last X pounds the harder it becomes. Why?” In this powerful episode,  I discussed the #1 reason why the more we work hard on getting rid of something or change what we think of as negative about us just becomes bigger and hard. You wouldn’t wanna miss!
