24-Navigating the Medical Provider Relationship with Maggie Landes, MD

Navigating the medical provider relationship

Many of our clients find it complicated to navigate through the medical provider relationship. In fact, they often associate it with uncomfortable conversations about their weight.

As non-diet coaches, we hear from our clients about their fear of bringing up their weight with their medical providers. This is true, especially, from our clients living in larger bodies who are most directly affected by medical weight stigma.

Being able to help our clients navigate the medical provider relationship is a critical skillset to have. Certainly, this will prevent them from missing out on the quality of healthcare they deserve.

That is to say, we need to be ready to support our clients with navigating their relationships with their providers. This means that weight stigma isn’t keeping them out of the healthcare system.

Helping your clients in navigating the medical provider relationship

Weight stigma is a systemic issue that one-on-one coaching can’t erase. However, that doesn’t mean our clients are powerless.

As professionals, we need to have the strategies and tools to support our clients with their medical provider relationship. Furthermore, we help empower them to take action that shifts the focus away from the weight. This will help address their real concerns.

In fact, when we have the right tools, we can coach our clients to create equality with their medical providers. Moreover, we are helping them establish consent (or non-consent), measure the decline unless absolutely necessary. Ultimately, we empower them to be the leader of the conversation with their medical providers.

In today’s episode, we interview Maggie Landes, a board-certified physician, public health nutritionist, and anti-diet wellness expert. She is also the creator and host of “The Eatfluencer Podcast”. It’s where she and her guests dig into the mindset work required to construct a healthy, complete, and high-quality life. A life that is unlimited by the oppression of diet culture.

Maggie will help us navigate the client-provider relationship and how to take weight out of the conversation.

What you’ll learn listening to this episode:

  • The gaps in healthcare that perpetuate weight stigma
  • 3 ways to decline being weighed at the doctor’s office
  • How to re-enter the healthcare system after experiencing weight stigma
  • Navigating the client-provider relationship & informed consent
  • Debunking common myths about weight and health

Anti-Diet Practitioners Success Stories


We have recorded a video for you.

We chatted about their personal and business wins over the last five months, the role of self-coaching in their business success, and how they coach their clients using self-coaching, etc.

Lisa shared how she went from charging $50/month from her client to $500 while Ardelle shared that she got her passion for her work back. Pavlina shared how she got over her anxiety, Jolyn shared how she managed a full-time mother role and now her role as CEO, and Sabrina shared how her marketing approach was completely overhauled.

Anti-Diet Practitioners Success Stories Vol. 2

Here’s the deal.

We are dedicated to making choices from a place of love instead of fear.

Diet Culture is rooted in fear.

The Non-Diet Movement is rooted in love.

We choose to teach from love. We coach from a place of love.

Moreover, we market our business from love. We empower.

Certainly, what happens when you actively rewire your mind to see love instead of fear?

Possibilities. Growth. Success.

The Non-Diet Mentorship doesn’t magically create success for our students: they do. That is to say, they make their success because they do the work with their mindset.

They have lived a diet culture. Moreover, they have lived in fear.

Now, they make the active choice to say: Hell no to fear.

Ultimately, that’s the reason why they are successful. 

What you’ll learn listening to this episode: 

  • Personal and business wins over the last five months
  • The role of self-coaching in their business success
  • How they coach their clients using self-coaching
  • How Lisa went from charging $50 / month to her client to $500
  • Ardelle shared that she got her passion for her work back

22-Are You Ready to Help Clients in an Anti-Diet Approach?

ready to help clients in anti-diet approach


One of the most profound questions I get on consultations is this one: 

How do I know if I’m ready to help clients in an Anti-Diet Approach? 

First off, You’ll never feel totally ready. Waiting for this moment where you will feel ready to go out into the world and launch your program, I’m sorry to say, but you’ll likely wait forever.

Why is it that we never really feel ready? 

One answer: The Human Brain.  

This question is one of the main reasons why I created a mentorship program and NOT a certification. I wanted to help health professionals feel ready and actually help people. 

I wanted to help practitioners get their human brains on board with their amazing talents and potential so they could create an amazing business that will serve hundreds and thousands of people! 

What you’ll learn listening to this episode on are you ready to help clients in an Anti-Diet Approach?:

  • How to determine if you are ready to help people in n anti-diet approach 
  • Why getting another certification is not the solution to feeling ready 
  • 8 tips to get your human brain on board to feel ready

19-Anti-Diet Approach to Health and Nutrition

19-Anti-Diet Approach to Health and Nutrition

anti-diet approach to health and nutrition


Today we will answer two major questions I get when I teach health professionals about the non-diet approach. 

Usually, these questions come right on the tail end of the first time being introduced to the non-diet approach. 

What are those questions that almost all health professionals have at their first encounter with the non-diet approach? 

But, what about health? 

And  

What about nutrition? 

These two questions reveal how entrenched diet and wellness culture along with weight stigma are in our education as health professionals.

It is very important to note that we, as health professionals, were blind to this. We were taught to teach our patient and client how to co-opt diet culture and fatphobia.

We have been trained and learned to believe that health can only result from dieting, thinness and restriction. 

So when faced with an approach to health that doesn’t promote diet culture, dieting, weight loss or food restriction, we assume it’s not “healthy”… 

Anti-Diet Approach to Health and Nutrition

In today’s episode, we will be helping you navigate these two questions when encountering the anti-diet approach for the first time. 

But what about health? 

But what about nutrition? 

What you’ll learn listening to this episode:

  • How to define health within a non-diet approach 
  • The danger of viewing health as personal responsibility 
  • Healthism 
  • The social determinants of health 
  • How to view nutrition within a non-diet approach  
  • Gentle Nutrition

This episode gets very heated… there are 3 solid rants that may trigger you. I want you to remember that triggers are only a sign for us to look deeper and see where we can upgrade and grow.
