Don't Salt My Game | With Laura Thomas, PhD

Join Registered Nutritionist Laura Thomas, PhD for conversations with game changers. Laura talks to people in wellness, foodies, bloggers, entrepreneurs from cool brands, creatives, nutritionists, doctors, body positivity people, mindfulness experts, and anyone else who is shaking up the wellness world, to find out how they stay on top of their game – and to help you do you, but better. It’s not all handstands and courgetti though - she and her guests aren’t afraid to dig deep into the darker side of wellness and WILL call BS on weird, faddy trends, that don’t have any legitimacy or scientific merit.

Guys, I'm so excited to be joined today by Zanna Van Dijk - Girl Gains Cofounder, blogger & PT and (surprise!) eco warrior. We talk about what drives her passion for sustainability and why she's a hippy at heart. She shares her hot tips for living a more conscious and environmentally friendly life and we talk about the importance of not putting too much pressure on yourself to nail everything all at once; just do you and do what you can/want to. We also talk about meditation & mindfulness and how Zanna got into it to help her business. We also talk about labels and not putting yourself in a box.

Alright team, it’s just you and me today. I got asked to share some more information on mindful eating. It plays an important role in intuitive eating and helps us tune into our hunger and fullness cues and it enhances our enjoyment of food (yay!). I’m also sharing a short mindful eating meditation so grab yourself a piece of chocolate and join in. Plus, I’m challenging you guys to one mindful meal a day for the next week to see what discoveries you make! I really hope this episode helps clarify what this really helpful and game changing concept actually means and how to approach it.

HEY OH! I can’t wait to introduce you to this week’s guest, because she’s someone I’ve followed for years, she’s one of the people who originally got me interested in intuitive eating, health at every size and non diet approaches to health and nutrition. Kelsey Miller is senior features writer for Refinery 29 in New York where she writes the column the Anti Diet Project which is all about intuitive eating, body image, and sane fitness. She’s also the author of 'Big Girl:How I Gave up Dieting and Got a Life'. And today we talk a little about her intuitive eating journey and how it’s really hard so don’t buy into the BS on Instagram where bloggers are like, I used to eat clean but now I eat intuitively without any concept of what it actually means (or any carbs on their plate. We also talk about how to be an advocate for body positivity from a place of thin privilege, we talk about recognising other types of privilege in the body positivity space and how unless you’re talking about intersectionality, then you’re kinda part of the problem. And she also gives a lot of great advice about how to get more comfortable with your body and spoiler; it involves getting out of your comfort zone. Really love this conversation.

⚠️ TRIGGER WARNING: This episode may not be suitable for people with an active eating disorder or for those who feel vulnerable.

Daniella Isaacs is an actor who is recovering from orthorexia; she’s written a one woman show called Hear Me Raw about her experiences of how the wellness scene enabled and normalised her eating disorder. In this episode Daniella explains how she got into wellness, how things got bad, then worse, then she lost her period and developed osteopenia - so things got pretty bad before she was able to take a step back and figure some stuff out and give herself the space to find what well looked like for her. I love Daniella's honesty and bravery as she opens up and explains what she went through and she brings an awesome energy and makes this interview really fun even though we're talking about heavy stuff.
