Get Your Body Back or Respect What You Have?

Subscribe or Leave a Review Here

A new mom so deeply in love with her son is struggling with body image, weight, self-care and all the tough transitions to motherhood. She asks Food for ways to get her body back and eat right, yet will Food go down that rabbit hole of dieting, self-loathing? Naaaaw, Food gives insight into ways for this mom to stay connected to herself: the one she has known her whole life and the new person who is now a mom.

Julie Duffy Dillon phones in a friend, Lindsay Stenovec RD, CEDRD, a dietitian specializing in helping women who are postpartum experience body positivity.

Key Points:

  • Motherhood is filled with ups and downs, massive transitions, and zero sleep.
  • "Comparison is the thief of joy" Theodore Roosevelt
  • Dieting followed by a period without dieting will feel chaotic yet exciting. It's not the food's fault rather the dieting.
  • Postpartum can be filled with joy and love AND unfamiliar, disconnected, and full of grief. Commonly, we turn to the body and food to ground ourselves.
  • Saying "I want my body back" = the quickest way to make Julie feel uncomfortable and turn into a raging feminist (that's a good thing by the way)
  • Reaching out to past routines and people can help make the postpartum experience more familiar and less stressful.
  • Hot coffee or a hot meal can keep us new and/or frantic moms stay grounded and promote self-care.
  • Beginner's Mind: imagine how your child experiences your body; they haven't learned about weight stigma yet!
  • New moms working toward body positivity will help her own self-care as well as prevent passing on cultural messages of body hate

When Failing a Diet Really Is Your Success

Subscribe or Leave a Review Here

A woman has been dieting for over 30 years and feels like a failure starting yet another weight loss plan. Instead of being hopeful and excited, she is feeling shitty. Really shitty. Dive in as we discuss health without dieting, family dynamics, and learning to eat again.

Key Points:

  • Diet rock bottom can be exhausting yet an opportunity to regain footing to a healthy relationship with food.
  • New diets can feel hopeful and be a seductive fantasy that life will be better with weight loss. Watch out for my F*bombs!
  • Our bodies do not like bodies. Falling off the diet wagon means you are being a successful human rather than a failure.
  • Binge Eating Disorder is serious and can take 4 to 7 years to recover. Perfectionism will keep you stuck in it longer! Mistakes help you know the best path to recovery.
  • The pursuit of weight loss can keep you from healing their relationship with food whether it is binge eating, emotional eating, and other disordered eating.
  • Lots on why diets don't work.
  • Not dieting is not giving up. It's letting yourself be.

Clean eating. Low carb. Low fat. Do this not that. Now what? Eating is getting too stuffy and complicated. Diets promote harm not health. Plus, they are boring.

This dietitian lists her concerns and pleas to food for help. People don't fail diets. Diets fail people. Let's start a revolution to respect our bodies and reject the diet mentality.

We need a new path to peace. The Love, Food podcast will call an Uber so we can get off the diet crazy train. Each spunky opinionated episode will consider ways to experience food peace and move away from disordered eating, binge eating, emotional eating, and negative body image.
