Let Us Eat Cake

Sep 30, 2021

In this week’s episode, Hannah and Ali talk all things Intuitive Eating principle #3: Make Peace with Food.They are joined by registered dietitian Alissa Rumsey, a nutrition therapist, certified intuitive eating counselor, and the author of Unapologetic Eating: Make Peace With Food and Transform Your Life. Given the title of her book and her expertise in advocating for women to reclaim the space to eat and live unapologetically, Alissa was the perfect person to help answer all your questions about making peace with food. What happens if you can’t trust yourself to have certain foods in the house? Why is it that I’m still so freaked out about bingeing if I’m eating consistently throughout the day? What does it really mean to have “unconditional permission” to eat all food”? Would you say eating fast food every single day because you “feel like it” is intuitive eating? Does unconditional permission ever cross a line that isn’t healthy anymore? How do I begin to start practicing food freedom when the idea of incorporating so many previously off limits foods terrifies me? Making peace with food sounds great in theory but often leaves people stuck in the “how” when their fears come up. Diet culture loves to reinforce the rules and fears around what to eat. In this week’s episode, Hannah, Ali and Alissa go step by step into this important third principle- what it is and how to start making peace with food.
