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!

Season 2 premiere! Food Psych is back, but this season we're taking a more leisurely approach, posting new episodes roughly once a month. This episode we talk with journalist Jane Lerner about how she developed an impressively healthy relationship to food, the business of food writing, the difficulties of dating as a "food person," and lots more.

Jane Lerner is a Brooklyn-based writer and editor and the organizer of BK Swappers, a food-swap barter event. Since moving to NYC from San Francisco in 2002, and with a particular interest in music, food, travel and culture, Jane has worked as the assistant to Madonna's publicist; helped launch the Smorgasburg food market; acted as the copy chief for the Daily Note, the newspaper of the Red Bull Music Academy New York 2013; and contributed to, fact-checked and/or copy edited for publications such as New York, Bon Appetit, NY Post, Rolling Stone, Us Weekly, and Print. She is currently the editor of Front & Center, the official blog of Rockefeller Center.
