You guys are in for a really interesting episode about psychology and food… This weeks interview is with the author, speaker and diet industry disruptor, Dana James who is is a triple certified nutritionist, functional medicine practitioner and cognitive behavioural therapist. She takes a rare approach to women’s weight loss by putting self-worth and personality types at the centre of the conversation. 
In todays show we talk about Dana’s book, The Archetype Diet. It is a brilliant book! Dana breaks down diet plans based on 4 personality groups after studying thousands of women and began to see there were 4 strong personality patterns that influenced eating behaviours and food choices. This interview and Dana’s work helps you to understand your archetype and how you can change your biology by eating in a way that supports your psychology. You may want to take the personality test on dana’s website to find out which archetype you are - https://danajames.com/female-archetype-quiz/
I hope you enjoy todays show as much as I enjoyed recording it.

A little bit about the NOT PERFECT podcast. Thank you for reading this and thank you for being here. The intention for this podcast is to share conversations on the subjects that can nurture our life from the inside. Just like physical exercise takes work and commitment, I believe our emotional health requires the same attention. Life throws curve balls unexpectedly and these can feel much more manageable when we know more about our mind. I hope these episodes are helpful in sharing tools, tips and insights into our brilliant hardware that can feel faulty but always fixable. I would love to hear from you if you have any feedback or guest suggestions, please find me on instagram @poppyjamie and @happynotperfect.
