Lovely radicals, podcast joy ahead…!

This week, on the “Life. Unrestricted.” podcast, we all have a chance to meet Beth Rosen.

Beth is a Registered Dietitian in private practice in Southbury (Connecticut, USA) and virtually everywhere else. She subscribes to a non-diet philosophy to wellness and is a Health At Every Size® practitioner. Beth has an undergraduate degree in Dietetics, and a Master’s degree from Columbia University in New York City in Nutrition Education. She has been a Registered Dietitian for over 20 years. Currently, she works with chronic dieters who are struggling with the vicious cycle of dieting to ditch all diets, learn to eat fearlessly through self-regulation and Intuitive Eating principles, and respect and care for their bodies. As someone who knows how it is to live with serious food intolerances, she loves sharing recipes and food ideas for joyful eating. Being a mother, she also writes about parenting, sustainable living, gardening and crafting. In this talk, Beth shares with us:
– How she was taught to feel about her body
– How her mother’s (and grandmother’s) relationship to food and weight got passed on to her
– How dieting became the “normal thing to do” for her
– How her brothers were affected by her mother’s obsession with thinness
– How she learned that girls “bonded” through body-hatred and diet-talk
– How diets mess with our body’s signals in a harmful way
– What kind of people she met in her studies to become a Registered Dietitian
– That – disturbingly! – even people with full-blown eating disorders were allowed to take these courses
– Why what is being taught at nutrition school is always to be taken with a grain of salt
– Why she made herself a disservice by following the advice she learned at nutrition school
– Why all foods – fun-foods included! – are important
– How the “stocking”-method words to get over the fear of certain foods
– How she remembers the moment she herself snapped out of her diet-obsession
– How her “way out” looked like when she decided to leave diet-culture behind
– What traps she fell into when she started intuitive eating
– What keeps us from actually letting dieting go, even if we know that it’s imprisoning us
– How to create new, better inner self-talk
– What it takes to make a new habit – like positive self-talk/not dieting – stick
– Why it is so important to separate the negative voice from ourselves and personalize it
– Why dealing with body image issues before motherhood is so crucially important
– How she made sure that she passes on a positive or at least neutral body image…

… And so much more!

Lovely radicals!
In today’s episode of the “Life. Unrestricted.” podcast, I get to talk to Marsha Hudnall from Ludlow, Vermont. Marsha is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, and she really has been a voice of reason and a thought leader for the last three decades in helping women move away from restrictive notions of food and health.

Ever since 1986, Marsha has been a guiding force at Green Mountain at Fox Run, the Vermont women’s retreat that pioneered the non-diet approach to health and weight. She now serves as president and co-owner, and she is passionate about all of her work. She is an accomplished writer who has written hundreds of articles for popular magazines, and professional journals and has worked extensively to educate the public about nutrition and about the impact of dieting and the internal diet-mentality that drives our eating behaviors and obsession with weight. Marsha is also the president of the Center For Mindful Eating and a former board member of the Binge Eating Disorder Association.
Listen in as Marsha talks about:
– What it was the set the stage for her quest for thinness
– How her mother’s body image and diet-obsession influenced her
– Why her personality type is typical for a person with an eating disorder
– What perfectionism has to do with eating disorders
– Why she never talked about her bulimia to anyone
– How her bulimia has affected her health long-term
– How restriction exacerbates any food-issues and causes food-obsession
– What the diet-industry has taken from our experience of “eating”
– Why that diet-mentality-induced guilt for eating created so many problems
– Why she became a dietitian
– What the steps to her healing looked like
– Why Green Mountain At Fox Run literally changed her life
– How her husband’s mother became the pioneer in the non-diet approach
– What the non-diet approach is REALLY about
– How best to move away from body-hate
– Why having a community and supporting each other can make all the difference
– Why accepting size-diversity is the key to self-acceptance
– How she introduces the concept of Health At Every Size to women who haven’t heard of it before
– What she means when she talks about structure around eating (it’s not what you think)
– Why eating fun-foods is very much part of a “normal” eating routine
– Why sugar addiction is nothing but another misleading marketing tactic
– How we can overcome those feelings of “addiction” with food
– What kind of feelings and thoughts people are trying to cope with by obsessing over food and weight
– How she deals with difficult feelings
– What makes community the key ingredient to healing for people…

… And so much more!
