The SociEATy Podcast is born! My name is Colleen Christensen, and I am a registered dietician who helps you learn to eat intuitively while ditching restrictive diet culture. I myself used to struggle with negative feelings about what I ate and how I saw my body, but I overcame those struggles, which means that you can too! My experience was a very long and tiresome process, but guess what? Yours doesn't have to be, nor should it be! This podcast will not just tell you what to eat; it will teach you how to eat, and while some episodes will be solo, I will also be bringing on guests such as experts and even women like you who are in the process of their own intuitive eating journeys. After all, one of the main reasons why I started The SociEATy was to assure people on this journey that there are people who understand them, people who are struggling with the same types of issues. Since starting The SociEATy, I have heard inspirational stories that I will share with you on this podcast, stories that will help you on your journey toward eating intuitively in a way that feels good mentally and physically – again, without restrictive diet culture!
