Health At Every Size® health coach and certified intuitive eating counselor Linda Tucker joins us to discuss how dieting causes health problems, why intuitive eating is compatible with managing chronic illnesses, how diet culture and its new guise as the Wellness Diet twist the definition of self-care and health, why Linda combines the principles of intuitive eating, HAES®, and body liberation in her work, and so much more! Plus, Christy answers a listener question about how to handle the feeling that things were just *easier* in a smaller body. (This episode originally aired on December 10, 2018.)

Linda works through a truly holistic lens, meaning that ALL aspects of someones lived experience are examined.
