Can You Accept Your Body and Still Want to Change It?


“Can I accept my body and still want to change it?”

That question is on the mind of many women as they begin their journey undieting their life. 

On today’s podcast, I will help find the answer to this question—the best answer for you, your body and your life.

My role as a coach is not to tell you what is right or wrong with you but to help you gain the confidence and autonomy to make a decision for yourself.

Can you accept your body and still want to change it? 

The answer can be yes or no… You’ll make this decision. 

I’ll coach on 3 questions to ask yourself in order to find your answer. It will take time and reflection, but you’ll find the answer the best suits you.

You have the power to make choices about your body. My advice is to make sure you like and respect the reasons why that fueled your choice. That the reason you decide to change your body or not serves YOU, not diet culture.

For that, the beliefs and thoughts that lead you to a choice should come from a place of love for yourself and your body instead of fear.

The key to happiness, confidence and a peaceful life is that first we are in a position to be autonomous and have agency over our own life.

In this episode #296 of the Going Beyond The Food Show, we will discuss:

  • How my relationship with my family has changed
  • What does body acceptance truly mean
  • Why is there not 1 answer for everyone to the questions
  • 3 questions to ask yourself to find the answer to the question to find the best answer for you
