Podcast Roundup

I never wanted to write a book about weight loss. In fact, it was exactly the topic I didn’t want to discuss – there is so much stigma (especially in the health and wellness world) around wanting to lose weight, and for a good reason. Often times the desire to lose weight comes from an external pressure or societal conditioning or even our own less than loving view of ourselves.

But sometimes the desire comes from a place within us – a place that knows that we can take better care of our bodies, both physically and emotionally, and that excess weight (or our troublesome digestive issues) is really just a symptom of another issue that needs to be looked at and cared for.

So I wrote Thin From Within and I came to realize that the very topic I was scared to discuss (weight loss), was exactly the conversation that needed to happen.

In the book, I strove to create a very sane, very “now age” way to approach weight loss. I wanted to provide the space for women to talk about their struggles with their bodies and their weight, and an opportunity to own their goals, weight loss focused or not.

Over the past 5+ months I’ve continued to revisit this conversation – sharing about my book and it’s teachings here with you, on social media, and as a guest on some of my favorite podcasts.

Today I’m sharing some of the more recent podcast episodes so that you can join (or simply listen in to) this exact conversation and the specific way I teach and talk about “weight” loss.

Talking about your health and your body doesn’t have to be taboo.
