Are you caught up in the mania that is motherhood? Do you find yourself feeling fatigued when it comes to making decisions regarding your kids' food choices? Does it feel as if your own relationship with food is being challenged? You're in the right place. Julie Duffy Dillon provides a heart-to-heart on this rewarding, but often exhausting stage.

Episode's Key Points:

  • Parenting often triggers many forms of stress.
  • Finding ways to complete tasks in more efficient ways can help relieve some of this anxiety.
  • If you have a history of an eating disorder or disordered eating, you may find these old behaviors and ways of coping return as you are dealing with the challenges of parenthood.
  • Eating for comfort and emotional eating are both very normal human ways of coping.
  • It is not the food choices that are concerning but rather the self-shaming thoughts and feelings we have around the choices we make. When these thoughts come up, call them out for what they are and provide self-compassion.
  • Connecting with a therapist provides a safe space to process your concerns.
  • Gather support from fellow mothers and intuitive eating mom experts.

Do you feel like you have no willpower when it comes to food? Does it seem like you will never get out of the cycle of dieting and bingeing? Are you even wondering if you may have a food addiction? Listen along as Julie Duffy Dillon provides insight on your next steps.

Episode's Key Points:

  • Nutrition Myth: Calories in, calories out is the key to weight loss.--->Fat phobia is actually at the root of this false message
  • Intuitive Eating will help bring about peace with food and your body through rebuilding connections with your body and allowing food to be consumed for both fuel and pleasure.
  • Taking steps to dismantle our fat phobic system and move towards body liberation is key to promoting health for us all.
  • Our worldview of bodies is broken, not our bodies.
  • Research shows that diets don't work for most people.
  • Saying someone is addicted to food is like saying they're addicted to oxygen, water, warmth, and sleep --->we need all of these to stay alive; "We can't be addicted to something we need to survive" --Amy Pershing
  • Connect with as many fat positive people as you are able in order to help move towards body autonomy and body liberation.

Do you ever feel guilt for eating certain foods? Do you fear judgement about what other people will think about your body or food choices? Do you ever catch yourself labeling food "good" or bad?" Are you finding it difficult to feel at home in your aging body? Listen along to this week's episode as Amanda Martinez Beck helps provide meaningful reflection.

Episode's Key Points:

  • Special guest: Amanda Martinez Beck, co-host of the Fat and Faithful podcast
  • Typically, we feel shame when we feel as though we have failed at meeting some type of expectations.
  • When processing body shame, it is often helpful to turn the conversation to, "What is the purpose of my body?" and being able to shift our understanding of its purpose from being a means to control life's uncertainties to being a bridge of connection to other people.
  • Quote to live by: "All bodies are good bodies"--because all types of bodies can form connections with others.
  • Our aging bodies tell our stories and reflect ours and our ancestors' journeys.
