FREE 1 Week Eating Plan + can’t skip tips to get you on your way to intuitive eating—without binges!
So often, when discussing how they eat, people will declare themselves in one of two camps, I’m restrictive, or I binge—often swinging from one side of the pendulum to the other.
News flash: being a dietitian doesn’t always solve all your food issues. Sometimes, having all that information about how food works rolling around in your brain can lead to obsessive thoughts about …you guessed it, FOOD which can lead to binging and subsequently
guilt and shame you don’t feel you can share with anyone.
That was the experience of my guest today. But she faced it all down and is now living out her passion for helping and guiding others as a member of the SociEATy team.
I’m so excited for this episode and to introduce you to Nicole. If you are in the SociEATy, you know who I’m talking about. She is the QUEEN of our SociEATy Facebook Group, the peanut butter to my jelly, and everyone’s number-one cheerleader.
Nicole is a Registered Dietitian from Pittsburgh, Pa. After struggling her way through disordered eating; she found her passion in helping others navigate their way through Intuitive Eating and live their lives to the fullest!
In this episode, Nicole and I have an honest and vulnerable discussion about the shame and embarrassment she felt as a dietitian who didn’t know how to eat and how she went from feeling like a fraud to facing her food issues head-on to now helping others navigate their Intuitive Eating journey through the SociEATy community.
We discuss the difficulty in getting into the intuitive part of Intuitive Eating and the impact of things like the number on the scale, activity trackers, and even pregnancy if you have body image issues. Plus, how to get the tools and support you need in your Intuitive Eating toolbox.
Listen in for a casual chat between two gal pals with a unique skill set that can help you learn to avoid binge eating and even move on from restricting to live your best Intuitive Eating life.
