Have you been told that you need to lose weight and cut carbs to manage your PCOS symptoms? That's the advice a lot of people get, problem is, that can be super triggering for anyone who has a history of disordered eating or who wants to build a healthy relationship to food. But don't sweat, I'm joined by non-diet dietitian and PCOS genius Julie Duffy Dillon to talk about how to manage your PCOS from a non-diet, non-restrictive perspective. In this episode we discuss:

✨ What PCOS is
✨ Why dieting and cutting carbs don't work for PCOS
✨ What the research does (and doesn't!) show
✨ Which supplements and medicine can be helpful
✨ How to handle cravings w/o getting into a binge restrict cycle
✨ The importance of sleep + stress management
✨ Inflammation + omega 3s
✨ Movement + exercise
✨ Protein, carbs, + gentle nutrition

I'm SO PUMPED to share this episode with you, I think you're going to love it! Today I'm talking to Evelyn Tribole, registered dietitian and co-author of Intuitive Eating. Yup, Evelyn is the OG creator of the Intuitive Eating concept, and evidence based approach to building a healthier relationship to food. Evelyn has such a depth of knowledge and incredible insight into the IE process, she is so awesome and I can't wait for you to listen! In this episode we talk about:

✨ The history of Intuitive Eating
✨ What Intuitive Eating is (and isn't!)
✨ The research (evidence base) behind IE
✨ How IE is being co-opted by diet culture and what we can do about it
✨ How reframing 'screw ups' as learning experiences can help facilitate the IE process
✨ How to reject the food police and practicing food neutrality
✨ Common fears about IE
✨ How essential gentle nutrition is as an anchor for the process and why it shouldn't be introduced too early
✨ How diet culture undermines your trust in your body, but every time you honour your hunger or appetite you help rebuild that trust

HEY OH! Look who's back. Coming in with a book update, followed by a conversation that desperately needed to be had, and I couldn't think of a more perfect guest for it than dietitian Paige Smathers (of the Nutrition Matters podcast). Paige and I are addressing some recent criticisms made about the non-diet movement like we're a) telling everyone to eat doughnuts all day long and b) shaming people who want to lose weight. This is in response to an article that was published recently which criticised the non-diet movement without appreciating some of the subtleties or nuance of the approach. Paige and I are discussing the concerns, doing a little reflecting, and trying to figure out how we can make the approach more accessible.

We discuss:
✨ Why it's important not to jump into nutrition too fast or too hard
✨ Knowing your audience and protecting the most vulnerable
✨ Why it's important to expose people to a variety of foods
✨ How we can bring make out message accessible to people without alienating others
✨ Why we need to be critical of the non-diet approach to help it move forward
✨ Why being critical of the non-diet approach doesn't mean you're for diets
✨ Why you shouldn't feel ashamed for wanting to lose weight or being on a diet BUT
✨ Why it's also important to understand the forces working on us that make us feel like we need to lose weight to he healthy, happy, or comfortable in our bodies
✨ Why doing the work of a non-diet advocate is HARD and why I had to delete Twitter the other week
