"It's about staying in tune with our bodies. Yet we’re so in tune with what the media tells us what we should look like, that we are disconnected from what we are and what we need to be."
It's our first expert feature! The Anti-Diet Dietitian, Gisela Bouvier and I have a rich conversation on the work she is doing to help women break free of barriers in the mind when it comes to changing their relationship with food.
We both open up about our past food stories, how the way we think about food has more power over our lives than we think, how we can break the never ending diet cycles and love our foods plus the body that it goes into. You're going to want to dig deep in this episode as she shares many nuggets of truth, practices and exercises that you can implement into your life right away!
