In this week’s episode, Hannah and Ali talk all things Intuitive Eating principle #8: Respect Your Body. To cover this complex topic they are joined by registered dietitian and eating disorders specialist Christyna Johnson. Christyna practices from a person-centered perspective with a social justice lens to help dismantle diet culture which made her the perfect expert to help answer all your questions about respecting your body. How do you overcome the desire to lose weight and be thin, when that’s considered to be more desirable in our society? Can people who fall outside of the thin, white ideal benefit from Intuitive Eating? My body is changing as I work through Intuitive Eating and recovery from binge eating- how do I acknowledge where my body is at and shift away from weight loss as a goal? Is this extra weight I’ve gained as I work on the IE principles really what my body needs, or just a result of overindulging in play food? How do I liberate myself from the negative body image I’ve developed from thirty years of exposure to diet culture? How can I develop a loving attitude towards my body, whatever its shape, when I’ve been conditioned to hate every speck of cellulite I see? Coming to a place of neutral respect for your body is a key aspect in healing from diet culture but it can be complicated especially when the idea of loving your body feels far away. Letting go of the thin ideal can be challenging and the process can feel overwhelming which makes this eighth principle an important step in the journey to find body peace and food freedom. In this episode, Hannah, Ali and Christyna use their expertise to help you take the first small steps towards a place of respecting your body for all the wonderful, incredible things it is able to do.
