Can You Practice Intuitive Eating and Want To Lose Weight?
42:47

Intuitive eating is an evidenced-based approach to eating that helps people tune into their body's unique needs, rather than relying on external food rules to determine what, when, and how much they eat.

In today’s episode we’ll cover:

• The core principles of intuitive eating and what they look like in practice
• Navigating body dissatisfaction while wanting to eat more intuitively
• How diet culture may be informing our food choices and desire to lose weight

Why We're Over it + How to Amplify Black Voices On & Offline
44:15
In the past few days, we've been hit up by countless publications, podcasts, and influencers asking us to be on their platforms to do a podcast interview, host an IG live, or have a conversation on racism. Oftentimes, these requests come with a ridiculously tight turnaround. No, we're not available tomorrow for a 2 hour interview boo. 
 
Here's the thing: we haven't been twiddling our thumbs for the past 10 years waiting for white people to realize the world was racist, so that we can then educate them. We're human beings.  We have lives. Believe it or not, we're actually busy. Also, there's a lot of emotional labor and trauma involved in being vulnerable and sharing our experiences with racism.  
 
Not to mention, we've contributed to COUNTLESS articles (go to our press page) about inclusivity and social justice before it was trending.  We've also done so. many. podcast episodes on these topics (check our BLM highlight for some of the most recent episodes). The work is out there. It's up to you to find it, read it, share it, amplify it. Don't ask us to do the work again.

In this week's episode, we go in on why we're frustrated and exhausted. But we also make sure to include some action items on what you (black, POC, white) can do to amplify black voices both on and offline.

10 Foods You Didn’t Know You Could Freeze
39:04

Coronavirus has complicated food shopping, and you may find that items are sold out, foods are overpriced, or that you have to spend a ridiculous amount of time on checkout lines. There are also the aggressive shoppers that want to race you for the last carton of eggs (if this sounds really specific, it’s because it legit happened to me yesterday). Usually we make a supermarket run every week to grab essentials, but needless to say, we’ve been trying to limit those runs because the experience has become so unpleasant. Also, social distancing is a real thing.

Freezing is an excellent way to preserve foods, and can be especially useful during these chaotic food shopping times. Tune in to today’s episode to learn:

-Our tried and true top foods for freezing that you may not have thought to freeze
-How to package these foods properly 
-Creative ways to use these foods when ready to cook
-Plus how we’re holding up with everything that’s been going on

We all have food issues w/ Virginia Sole Smith
50:50

What’s one good book that you COULD. NOT. PUT DOWN. in 2019? For me, it was The Eating Instinct by journalist & author, Virgina Sole-Smith. In this book, Virginia visits kitchen tables around America to tell her own story, as well as the stories of women recovering from weight loss surgery, of people who eat only nine foods, of families with unlimited grocery budgets and those on food stamps. The book is a deep dive into how we all learn to eat in today’s toxic food culture. In today’s episode we discuss: how Virginia got into this work (it started when her newborn stopped eating) and how Virginia’s relationship with food evolved throughout the years. We also explore how social media has contributed to our heightened stress around food, how to navigate food struggles with kids, and things you can do to make sure you’re not projecting your own body image issues onto your children.

How to Navigate Comparing Yourself to Others w/ Marci Evans
46:16

Do you compare yourself with others? (Raises hand.) Our podcast guest this week, Marci Evans, spoke about social comparison theory at our annual nutrition conference, and it was hands down the most powerful presentation I have ever been to. Social comparison theory states that individuals determine their own social and personal worth based on how they stack up against others. In some cases, comparison can be helpful, but more often than not, it’s bad for our wellbeing. If you have ever compared your success, body image, relationship status, friendships or even living situation to anyone else (especially on social media), you HAVE to listen to this episode. Tune in to learn: Which personality types tend to be more prone to comparing (hint: people who are empaths), what happens to our brains when we make these cross-comparisons, and concrete things you can do to compare less…starting NOW (and for free).

Have you ever been food shamed? You know, when someone makes negative comments about what you are eating, emphasizing why it’s “bad” or “wrong”.

Tune in to learn what food shaming actually looks like, why it’s unhelpful, how to make sure you aren’t the one doing do it. PLUS, what to do instead.
