Chronically Healing Podcast

Sep 30, 2020

Y’all… I LOVED THIS EPISODE! I had such an amazing conversation with Lisa Kilgour all about the dieting hamster wheel and how that affects us in so many ways.

We talked about what happens when we restrict, restrict, restrict and how these diets we’re on (even for health reasons) are meant to be for a period of time… not forever. We talked about how our body will always win. So how do you want to work with your body?

We really hit home on dieting culture and how it affects all of us. Let’s step away from “guilty foods” and “good foods” and instead step into a space of undieting. Women are powerful and beautiful - why are we so focused on those few extra pounds?

I can’t even write all of the amazing nuggets I learned from Lisa during our session, so head on over to the episode and listen in!

Also, l’ll be doing a giveaway with her book, “Undieting: Freedom from the Bewildering World of Fad Diets” over on Instagram, so make sure to check that out!

In today’s episode we chat about:

  • Holistic nutrition and what is “undieting” and “real life healthy eating”

  • Lisa’s story and path that got her on the path of becoming a holistic nutritionist 

  • The real place we want to get with eating is understand what our body is saying and what makes it feel good

  • How fad diets can mess with the ability to understand what your body ACTUALLY wants and needs

  • The importance of putting an “end date” on all of those chronic illness and AIP diets that are out there. We have to ignore our body during that time to heal, but it’s not meant to be a long-term option for most people.

  • What would happen in the world if women weren’t focusing on those few extra pounds?

  • Dieting culture and women’s self worth is wrapped up in what’s attractive “right now”

  • Lisa’s book, “Undieting: Freedom from the Bewildering World of Fad Diets” and why she decided to write it
