This week we are releasing a bonus episode that we usually share only with our Live Free Collective Members.  In the non-diet world, it’s hard to get personal support and community on a regular basis. Like when you’re eating dinner and everyone is talking about their diet. Or at a baby shower and your great aunt is giving the mom to be tips for how to lose the baby weight. It can feel like you are the only one in the world who wants to stop dieting. It can be hard to take action after listening to our podcast because change doesn’t happen in isolation. Change happens with a community of support.  You need community because the community you are coming from is stuck in diet culture. You need a support system that is moving forward in the anti-diet world. You need to know that there are others working to stop weighting and show up exactly as they are.  When we do this work in community, we actually get results. That’s why we are launching the Live Free Collective, a membership where you can get the support and strength you need to leave diet culture behind and LIVE FREE.  Each month members have access to: An exclusive meditation they can access right on their phone Desktop and phone wallpapers that will keep you encouraged A downloadable workbook with journal prompts and mantras Access to group discussions Monthly Coaching call with Q & A Don't "WAIT" another moment to Live Free!

Have you ever thought about what kind of eater you are?  We’ll dive into why this is a helpful piece of information for you as you recover your intuitive eater.  This episode is about the eating personalities, as defined in the Intuitive Eating book by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch. They’ve identified some of the main types of approaches we have to eating in order for us to understand our subconscious way of feeding ourselves. Learning about what type of eating personality you often default to will help you from getting too hungry, from disconnecting with your body, or from missing your last bite threshold. This all is part of building interoceptive awareness.   MENTIONS Episode 120 Interoceptive Awareness  Episode 99 Health at Every Size    SHOW SPONSORS Just Thrive Probiotics - Get 15% off your first order using code: tonyabythespoonful Save the rejected produce!

WTF is Interoceptive Awareness?  Interoception involves communication between a bodily sensation and our brain processing the information to support physical and emotional wellbeing, and ultimately a response.  The ability to access interoceptive awareness varies greatly from person to person; for some it is relatively easy and little guidance is needed and for others, it can take training and practice.  Any type of conscious restriction causes us to detach from our body signals and ignore what is happening. The disconnect causes us to be confused and unable to read what our body is actually telling us.  In this episode, we discuss how Intuitive Eating helps us tap into our interoceptive awareness.

You may have heard about toxic positivity. Toxic positivity is the belief that no matter how dire or difficult a situation is, people should maintain a positive mindset. It's a "good vibes only" approach to life. If you look at social media they would have you believe that body positivity is about loving your body and thinking good things about it at all times. That you have gone from hating it to loving it and there is never an off day. The problem with that is we are not robots, we can’t only ever feel one way. We call that Toxic Body Positivity.  Check out this week's episode for what we encourage you to practice instead.

One of the main reasons we turn to dieting is because we don’t feel safe, valued, or accepted in our bodies as they are. So we disconnect from it and force it to change. ⁣ ⁣ We are so obsessed with the way our bodies look on the outside, we are not present inside of them. We look outside of ourselves for how to care for it.⁣ ⁣ Embodiment is the act of being present with our body, tuning into what it is telling us and connecting with it. ⁣ ⁣ In this week's episode, WTF is Embodiment?, we talk about how we can use embodiment to heal our relationship with food and our bodies. ⁣ SHOW SPONSORS Rothy's Get $20 off your first pair.

In this episode, Tonya talks about her deconstruction and reconstruction of faith. She talks about her struggle to reconcile what she was taught about her body and caring for it, versus what is actually her truth. Tonya addresses the effect purity culture had on her intimate relationships as well as how dieting within the church became toxic for her. This is a vulnerable yet important topic to dive into, as most of us are struggling with the role of the evangelical church in our society and in our lives.    SHOW SPONSORS Save the rejected produce!

If you scroll through social media you might see photos of women showing off their rolls and proclaiming they love them. Which we are all about, we think that visibility and representation are so important and we need to see all bodies, not just the ones that the media portrays. The problem is, your relationship with your body can’t be captured in an Instagram photo. Just like everything else on Instagram, it is a highlight reel and it isn’t a true picture of what your relationship with your body looks like. You can have a good relationship with your body and loving it isn’t a prerequisite for doing that.

This episode answers the question, what the actual eff is HAES?  You might have heard a bit about Health at Every Size when you’re learning about Intuitive Eating, but not really understood how it correlates with the anti-diet movement. Measures of body weight and body size do not accurately reflect an individual’s health status and often lead to ineffective interventions rather than efforts that actually enhance health and wellness. In this episode, we unpack a few common myths of HAES® and truly hope you walk away with a better understanding of how the Health at Every Size principles are based on inclusivity and support the Intuitive Eating movement.    MENTIONS https://asdah.org/ https://haescommunity.com/ Episode 27 HAES Explained   SHOW SPONSORS Tonya by the Spoonful Intuitive Eating Coaching: Schedule your free consultation today!

We have been conditioned from birth to hate the way we look. Movies show us the stereotypical fat girl who can't get a man until she gets a make over. She's the best friend, the butt of the joke, a consolation prize never the main character. We have tv shows like FRIENDS who portray fat Monica and make jokes about her eating small children. We go to the doctors and instead of diagnosing why we are there, they prescribe weight loss as the only way to cure disease.  We see celebrities like Adele completely transforming the way they look. And others who are bullied and ridiculed for gaining weight.  Is it any wonder we have such a hard time accepting and love our bodies? ⁣ On this week's episode of the podcast we are talking about how to reframe and take back your body image from diet culture.⁣ Thank you to our episode sponsors: Ready to stop weighting and start showing up exactly as you are?

Episode Notes This week we have the pleasure of speaking with the founders of Her Health Collective, Crissy Fishbane and Cindi Michaelson. HER Circle is a supportive, welcoming community for moms. Her Health Collective focuses on Improving the lives of moms with a dynamic social community supported by women’s health experts. In this episode, Cindi and Crissy speak on mom guilt, overwhelm, and the feeling of judgment that often appears in the "mom arena." They are both incredibly passionate about women embracing the idea of being perfectly imperfect. This includes shedding the idea of an ideal body, being a perfect mom, or having it all together and embracing and loving who she is right now.   GUEST INFO  https://herhealthcollective.com/ Facebook @HERHealthCollective Instagram @HER_HealthCollective Twitter @HER_HealthCo   SHOW SPONSORS Thred Up - Online Thrift Store : Get $20 off your first purchase or if you’re ready to sell, get free expedited processing on your first kit.

In the episode, we go over some common wellness culture terminology so you can spot the sneaky wellness culture influence and identifying your place in wellness culture. Wellness culture is sneaky. We don't even realize how it creeps up into our thoughts around food and body, let alone how we spend our time and money.  Wellness culture is the cousin of Diet Culture. It’s that quiet nice sidekick to the loud annoying villain. The one where you almost think you could get along if it wasn’t for their affiliation to the enemy. We challenge you to think about how wellness culture thoughts or habits have affected your ability to care for yourself in an authentic way. If our podcast has been in any way helpful, we would love to have you be a part of the Live Free Collective to support ongoing production, as well as be a part of our non-diet community.
