"How would you eat if you weren’t trying to lose weight?" - Rachael Hartley

My guest, Rachael Hartley, and I will discuss how to change your relationship with food from one of eating only to lose weight to do what she calls “gentle eating.” She discusses her approach to gentle nutrition and intuitive eating. Rachael also talks about how trauma can impact intuitive eating and what to do about that.

In this show you will learn:

  1. What are some of the psychological effects of dieting?

  2. What is intuitive eating?

  3. What is the difference between the pursuit of health and the pursuit of thinness?
