In this week’s episode Hannah and Ali talk all things the diet-free revolution. They are joined by clinical psychologist and Certified Eating Disorder Specialist-Supervisor Alexis Conason. Alexis gave Hannah and Ali a sneak peak at her new book “The Diet-Free Revolution: 10 steps to free yourself from the diet cycle with mindful eating and radical self acceptance” and once they read it they knew she was the PERFECT person to answer these listener questions: How do you manage feelings of guilt and shame that come up when you allow yourself to eat foods you enjoy? How do I know the differences between food preferences and disordered eating beliefs? How can I implement mindfulness strategies with eating when I’ve always used busyness to avoid food? How can meditation improve your relationship with food? We spend a lot of time identifying the problems within diet culture and the negative impact on our relationships with food and our bodies but what we don’t always talk about are the next steps. In this episode Hannah, Ali and Alexis will give you a how-to guide for getting started on breaking free from the grip of diet culture and living a life of food freedom.
