Food Psych Podcast - Intuitive Eating, Positive Body Image, & Eating Disorder Recovery
Helping people make peace with food since 2013. Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor Christy Harrison, MPH, RD, CDN talks with guests about their relationships with food, body image, eating disorders, weight and size acceptance, non-diet nutrition, exercise, self-compassion and self-care--all from a body-positive, Health at Every Size perspective. Along the way, Christy shares her own journey from disordered eater and dieter to food writer and anti-diet dietitian, and offers tips to help you accept your body and let go of guilt about food. This podcast challenges diet culture in all its forms--including the restrictive behaviors that often masquerade as wellness and fitness. Food Psych is designed to offer safe and non-triggering support for listeners in recovery from eating disorders, weight stigma, and body shame. Subscribe for new anti-diet inspiration every week!

Size-acceptance speaker and yoga teacher Rachel Estapa (More to LoveĀ®) discusses how being a larger-bodied child led to early experiences of shame and dieting, why a lack of plus-size clothing options exacerbated her body hatred, why diet culture's promise to "fix" us is so alluring, how an acute illness led to an unexpected truce with her body, why rediscovering her loves and desires was essential to her recovery from dieting, how the practice of yoga helped show her the path to liberation, how she's navigating the transition from blogger to coach and teacher, why running a recovery-oriented business can be so challenging, and lots more!

Rachel Estapa, founder of More to LoveĀ®, is a certified life coach, certified Kripalu Yoga teacher, writer, speaker and social entrepreneur who educates and supports plus size people on approaches to positive body image and wellness, enabling all bodies to lead more empowered lives.
