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. Fresh pods every Friday. #dontsaltmygame

In this killer ep Laura + Sarah, a Registered Nutritionist, jump into the world of child feeding + answer frequently asked parents' questions when it comes to raising intuitive eaters. 

In this episode they discuss:

✨ How messages from diet culture + (mostly) well-intentioned friends + family can encourage kids to undermine their internal hunger + fullness cues
✨ Responsive feeding, the Division of Responsibility + how these approaches can help take the pressure of parents + carers
✨ What overt + covert control is + how they can lead to kids eating in the absence of hunger
✨ How to speak to kids about bodies in a helpful way
✨ How to come back from micromanaging kids' eating
✨ The fact that Sarah DOES sometimes take her kids to McDonald's

We want to reassure you that this isn't an episode where we tell you everything that you're doing wrong, and that if you have been engaging in some of the less helpful practices that it's never too late to introduce a different way of doing things!

This week Laura chats to Jes Baker, bad-ass author + unabashed fat chick. They sink their teeth into healthism, compassion + just how god damn hard it is to go from dieting to a more intuitive relationship with food + your body. 

In this episode they discuss:

✨ Protecting your mental health online
✨ Being gentle with yourself when you're starting out with rejecting diet mentality + to try and let go of shame + guilt
✨ That doing a total 180 from dietland to donutland is totally fine + normal 
✨ How it can sometimes be important to take a break from movement when we're transitioning from exercising as part of diet culture to moving for enjoyment
✨ The fact that self compassion is our best friend on this journey of finding peace with food + our bodies
