139: Your Holiday Food & Body Image Survival Guide

Molly Bahr, LMHC is a licensed mental health counselor currently stationed for a year in Haiti.  She has a private practice primarily focused on individual therapy for eating disorders, disordered eating, anxiety, depression, and trauma working from a Health At Every Size lens. In addition to the private practice, she also worked at a clinic specializing in care for transgender individuals in Honolulu, Hawaii over the last 3 years.  Prior to that she worked on an inpatient eating disorder unit and an IOP program for substance use disorders in New Orleans, LA. Molly utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and EMDR modalities for treatment. As a Coast Guard wife, she looks forward to seeing where the sails will take them next.   In this episode, we discuss the common struggles and concerns during the holiday season with food, body image, social stress, and more. We discuss these ideas in depth: Diet talk: constant chatter about calories, being “bad” for eating, losing weight, the diet they’re going to go on in January, etc. All or nothing thinking: we see this all times of year but it seems to be especially bad during the holiday season where people are promising themselves that they’ll restrict again in the new year. Feeling worried about family gatherings and judgement or not understanding your choices around food/eating/body image: this one is HUGE for clients. Molly provides some practical advice about how to navigate these tough social situations this time of year. Mixed messages about yummy, enjoyable food experience while everyone sits around and talks about how “bad” they’re being for eating those foods. If this is a hard time of year because you’ve experienced loss, or you’re struggling in other ways: Skills for navigating the holiday season. Molly provides ideas and skills to practice before holiday events, during stressful times and then after difficult situations. Just a reminder! I am taking a two-month break from podcasting during the months of November and December of 2018. Enjoy the rest of this year, everyone, and keep in touch with me via Instagram or Facebook!

137: Happiness isn't a Size: An Interview with Jes Baker, Author of Landwhale

Jes Baker is a positive, progressive, and magnificently irreverent force to be reckoned with in the realm of self-love advocacy and mental health. She is internationally known for preaching the importance of body liberation, hard conversations, strong coffee, and even stronger language. Jes burst onto the body positivity scene when she created her own ads mocking Abercrombie & Fitch for discriminating against all body types—a move that landed her on the Today Show and garnered a loyal following for her raw, honest, and attitude-filled blog missives. When not writing, Jes spends her time speaking around the world, working with plus size clothing companies, organizing body liberation events, taking pictures in her underwear and attempting to convince her cats that they like to wear bow ties. In this podcast episode, we talk about how Jes found body positivity and her career trajectory. We spent a good amount of time talking about her recent book, Landwhale. We talk about what it's like to write a book about all the most intimate and vulnerable details of your life and Jes talks about why she believes you should look at old pictures of yourself. We ended the conversation talking about what the world and the body positivity community would look like if she could wave a magic wand and change things.  Jes is a true force to be reckoned with and pure joy to interview. Enjoy! Links mentioned: Learn more about Jes at TheMilitantBaker.com. Jes's blog post about self-portraits and why it's important to love your body now.

Heidi Schauster, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S just came out with a new book called Nourish: how to heal your relationship with food, body and self and she came on the podcast to talk about the question so many people have: how do I nourish myself? We talk about perfectionism, eating disorder recovery and why we both love the word nourish when talking about nutrition and health. We both believe language matters as we explore our relationships with our bodies and food.   We also dive deep into the common questions we both get about troubleshooting intuitive eating.

130: Why #nuancematters in Conversations about Gut Health & Nutrition Science

Jessie Hoffman, PhD (c) came on the podcast to talk about why nuance matters when it comes to nutrition, health and science. Jessie is an expert in gut health, so we take some time in this episode to debunk some common myths about gut health since it's all the rage right now.   In this episode, she shares her personal story of suffering from an eating disorder. She shares why she initially went into the field of nutrition, but how she found a more balanced and ultimately health-promoting approach to nutrition through time, training and experience. She talks about how she has done her deep dive into the world of nutrition research, she has developed more of a critical mindset and nuanced perspective about food and nutrition.   We talk about how powerful stepping away from binary thinking is in developing a healthy, positive relationship with food.We talk about why it's fine to care about nutrition and the science of it, but it can be taken too far. We talk about how to navigate balancing Health at Every Size, Intuitive Eating and nutrition science. We promise, there's a way to marry all these concepts!   We also are releasing our brand new collaboration: an online course called Positive Nutrition 101—the art & science of nutrition without the gimmicks!

127: Tips for Shifting from Rigid Meal Plans to Flexibility with Food

Devrie Pettit, MS, RD is a registered dietitian who has gone through an interesting professional journey from selling meal plans online to supporting a message focused on Intuitive Eating, HAES, and restriction recovery. She and her best friend started an online business a few years ago selling meal plans where they did their best to promote flexibility within their programs. Soon they realized that people who were participating in their programs were rigidly obsessed with the meal plan and not taking the ideas as a framework and guidelines rather than rules and Devrie started to feel like she wanted to make a change with her offerings and focus.   She eventually re-branded her business to be more in alignment with her personal philosophy around food and discovered the weight-neutral approach. She still has a soft spot for those who are wrestling with these concepts, and she came on the podcast to talk about her best tips for embracing flexibility with food.   In this podcast, we discuss food plans: the good, the bad and the ugly. We talk about how to detect diets in all their sneaky forms and we talk about strategies for incorporating flexibility into your life with food. We discuss why food plans in all the forms can be so seductive and alluring and provide some ideas for moving forward without rigidity.   Links mentioned: Devrie's website: https://www.happilyfed.life/ Listen to episode 111: Breaking Down Weight Science with Fiona Willer Leave a review for the podcast here.

126: The Intersection Between Addiction and Nutrition

Nutrition during addiction recovery is an often very misunderstood and mischaracterized element of healing. Healing from addiction requires a multi-faceted approach and nutrition can play an important role. However, it's not the end-all-be-all of wellbeing. In this podcast episode, Tessa Acker, MPH, RD and I talk about our work in the Substance Use Disorder (SUD) world where we both engage in nutrition groups for those in recovery.    We talk about why this intersection is so tricky and how the structure of recovery is helpful in so many ways but can often be extremely challenging when navigating food.   Tessa Acker is a registered dietitian with a Master's in Public Health Nutrition from the University of Minnesota, where she focused on underserved and disadvantaged populations. She pursued this field with the belief that nutrition is the foundation for a healthy life and wanted to help others obtain, learn about, and enjoy healthy foods. She began her career working on international nutrition issues with the United Nations and Clinton Foundation in Peru and Malawi, but has since returned to the United States to work with her brother, Ian Acker, at Fit To Recover (FTR). FTR is a community center and gym for people in recovery from SUDs. Tessa is the founder and lead dietitian of the nutrition pillar, Food to Recover, where she aims to help people in recovery see the role nutrition can play during recovery and in their everyday lives, develop and maintain a healthy relationship with food, and gain skills and knowledge to feel confident making their own food and nutrition choices. Tessa is also a certified yoga teacher and enjoys all of the adventures that Utah has to offer.   Links mentioned: Fit To Recover website: https://www.fit2recover.org/ Listen to episode 94: Food Addiction—Fact of Fiction Leave a review for the podcast here.

124: Performative Health vs. Embodied Wellbeing

This podcast episode dives deep into some of the most critical and core concepts within the realm of health and healing. I spoke with Dr. Lilia Graue, who is both a physician as well as a psychotherapist, to dive into the distinctions between performative health versus embodied wellbeing.   Lilia Graue, MD, LMFT, is an eating disorders specialist and clinical supervisor; mindfulness, compassion and mindful eating instructor; and Certified Body Trust® Provider. With 18 years of clinical experience, she is intimately familiar with bodies and minds and our healing processes, and how we relate to, nourish and take care of ourselves and our bodies in ways that bring us closer to wholeness, radical presence, fierce embodiment and joy. Lilia practices at the intersection of different healing modalities, centering lived experience and the body as a source of knowing. Her own life experiences with developmental and complex trauma, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, and a healing journey through psychotherapy and mind-body practices, have shaped her approach. Her practice is trauma informed, and rooted in intersectional feminism. She is Mexican and provides services in both English and Spanish.   Lilia loves working with providers navigating the challenges of advocating bravely for body liberation, embodiment and freedom from performative health who wish to cultivate and honor boundaries that allow for their self-care and replenishing empathy and compassion. Lilia is an avid amateur cook, baker, and foodie. She and her partner share their home with their beloved cats, Thomas and Ziggy.   In this podcast, we explore what the word "holistic" actually means and talk about the power of reclaiming words that get co-opted by gimmicks. We also discuss the concepts and frameworks of performative health versus embodied wellbeing and explore metaphors of how to distinguish between these two approaches. We talk about the incredible work of Niva Piran and her work on the theory of embodiment. We warn against approaching health and wellbeing with an all-or-nothing mindset. And, we close the conversation by exploring the power of joy and pleasure in health.   Links mentioned: Lilia's coaching website: https://www.fiercelyembodied.com/ Mindful Eating Mexico website: https://mindfuleatingmexico.com/ Niva Piran's Amazon page.

123: Answering Common Questions about Being a Health at Every Size Private Practice Dietitian

Have you ever wondered what it's like to be in private practice? Have you wondered about how it works to be an entrepreneur who is offering a counter-cultural approach to food and nutrition?   Jessi Haggerty, RD is a fellow dietitian in private practice who also has a podcast, and joined me on the podcast to answer the most common questions we get about our work.    We go through the following questions and more: How we got started What we were most afraid of when we started How we finally made the leap of faith What happened when we started to take our businesses seriously and started making commitments Our process of how to organize your business What to consider when getting started with private practice How to network and get referrals How to decide about insurance  Why we both started enforcing our policies (especially cancelation policies) and why it's hard to do it sometimes How to keep yourself accountable to finish tasks and stay on schedule with due dates Attracting clients with a HAES and non-diet approach Getting over the fear and taking the plunge How to deal with impostor syndrome Whether or not it's true that you should get clinical experience before opening a private practice How to navigate branding and marketing EHR (electronic health records) versus paper charting Whether or not we get sick of talking about food and body image all the time   Links mentioned: Jessi's website and podcast A Dietitian's Guide to Starting a Private Practice Leave a review for the podcast here.

122: Let Freedom Ring—Body Liberation & Emotional Freedom

On this day of Independence—at least for the United States listeners—I'm sharing a podcast episode all about liberation and freedom as it relates to food, dieting and bodies.   Dr. Joy Cox is a social justice advocate, using her skill set in research and leadership to foster social change through the promotion of diversity and inclusion. Her research in Communication focuses on matters of intersectionality addressing race, body size, accessibility, and "health." She is the creator and host of Fresh Out the Cocoon, a podcast centered on the lived experiences of fat Black women and femmes, and in teaching she inspires students to find their voice and confidently share ideas, making learning fun, relatable and empowering.   Dr. Cox came on Nutrition Matters to talk about her dissertation and research in fat positive activism and communities and related the most important findings from her research. She gave a great synopsis of the body positive and fat positive movement and explains what communities can do to be more supportive, inclusive and helpful in aiding social justice progress.   She also shared her personal story of body liberation and talks specifically about the physical things she's done to heal and to free herself as well as the emotional and mental side of healing and liberation. She shared practical examples that will resonate with anyone who's ever struggled with accepting their body.   Links mentioned: Dr. Joy Cox's website: https://freshoutthecocoon.com/ Fresh Out of the Cocoon Podcast Leave a review for the podcast here.

121: What it's Like to Feel You Don't Fit In with the Non-Diet Message

Have you ever felt like you don't fit in with the non-diet message? Have you ever scratched your head about a post you saw on social media from someone who represents the intuitive eating approach, Health at Every Size, or anything else along those lines? Have you ever wondered if there's a place for you in the non-diet movement? The short answer is yes. But, listen to the entire discussion, because we explore a very real feeling of not fitting in going on in the non-diet world. You're welcome here. Listen in as I talk with Sarah Pannell, LMFT about her experience of wondering whether the non-diet community would welcome her. Sarah spent many months down a rabbit hole of trying to cure her chronic illness with food. Eventually, she chose to stop trying trying to cure her chronic illness with food and accept my body as it is, and she learned to care for it by cueing into her intuition (being mindful in planning, not relying on hunger/fullness cues in the same way, etc). Her experience of learning how to care for her body gives her empathy for others for who may not be able to have an "all foods fit" approach to food, including those with food allergies. We talk about how we're all in our own process with exploring the non-diet approach to nutrition and health and how this conversation is still relatively new and young.   We talk about the language of invitation and the fact that the non-diet community really does need more stories and more exploration of how rejecting dieting looks for people from all walks of life. Otherwise, we're vulnerable to becoming just another iteration of a laundry list of rules and exclusivity. We talk about the nuance we need moving forward to be as inclusive and welcoming as possible.   Links mentioned: Sarah's website: https://www.wepsychotherapy.org/ Leave a review for the podcast here.

108: How Nutrition & Weight Messages are Affecting our Children

We all want the same things for our kids—happiness, health and overall positivity. After spending years listening to adults talk about the formative messages they received about their body and food during childhood, I have some strong opinions on how adults portray messaging about food and bodies with children. We mean well, but often our best efforts at nutrition messages are unhelpful at best and harmful at worst.   This is what we're covering in this episode of Nutrition Matters Podcast. We're taking a good look at the nutrition messages we give our kids and breaking down why certain ways of talking about food aren't advised. I invited my friend Dana Snook on to talk about this topic who is  is a registered dietitian who specializes in pediatric nutrition and family feeding dynamics.    We talk about why it's best to talk less about and show/do more when it comes to food and kids. We talk about what is actually effective in helping kids to develop healthy eating patterns and an overall healthy relationship with food. We dive deep into action items parents and teachers can do to help kids navigate food and bodies in a mentally healthy and physically healthy way.   Links mentioned: Dana Snook's website The lunchbox cards from The Feeding Doctor Leave a review for the podcast here Positive Nutrition online course coming soon!
