I have such a treat in store for you today – not one but two guests, Nicole and Mindi! Nicole and Mindi are here to chat all things The SociEATy and what it's like to be a part of it! This is a pretty casual conversation in which we dive into some girl talk about The SociEATy and also intuitive eating in general, with the main point being to give someone an idea of what they could expect from being a member!
Nicole and Mindi share some background information about their pasts and histories with diet culture and unhealthy relationships with food as well as how they found intuitive eating and The SociEATy. They share their frustrations with diet culture and disordered eating and also enthusiastically credit The SociEATy for being a source of community, comfort, and support, helping them celebrate wins and being there to catch them when they fall! They also, of course, give a few actionable tips that can be acted upon today!
It was so much fun having this casual and vulnerable chat with Nicole and Mindi about their intuitive eating journeys and what they get out of The SociEATy!
