Overcoming Weight Struggle As A Nutritionist
Stephanie, how do you deal with your weight struggle?
This was the starting point of this episode. A podcast listener submitted this question, and I sat on it for weeks.
At first, I’ve got to be honest, I took offense… then I reflected. Why is this offensive to me?
Because I know that answering this question is going to ruffle feathers. My viewpoint on weight is significantly different from most health experts’. I live it every day… since the age of 14.
To answer this properly, I also I had to answer these 2 questions:
Why do you think you need to answer people who challenge your weight?
People who say harming yourself by not dieting?
So, this is a beast of an episode… likely one that will upset many… but also one that will help many. I knew that in writing this episode, a hundred one women would have their AH AH moment that would enable them to start their own transformation.
Are you going to be one of them?
In this episode I discuss
- My personal journey from my dieting years towards transforming my life and overcoming weight struggle
- What drove me toward my transformation
- Why investing in yourself is key in developing a healthy relationship with yourself
- The many reasons why I ditch the diet mindset
- How I deal with people who challenge me with my weight
Last episode was a very special episode of The Beyond The Food Show podcast. I teach the Food Freedom Map 4 steps process. This Map will move you from being a victim of your food habits to eating when hungry and stopping when full. Yes, eating normally.
If you are tired of dieting, over-exercising, and yet another fad program… Or, you are overeating or binging and wish you could just be a normal eater, and are fed up by these scenarios, you gotta listen in! Click here.
