This week I'm tackling listener questions with Eliza Khinsoe - a fellow Nutrition Counsellor at London Centre for Intuitive Eating.

Eliza shares a little about how she got into weight-inclusive practice, what her responsibilities are at LCIE and her work on the Pantry Party Pod to support students and new grads in the field. 

The we go deep into YOUR questions. We cover so much in this episode, but some highlights include:

  • When it’s time for gentle nutrition and how you balance nutrition information with intuitive eating
  • How to learn to respect fullness cues
  • What the deal is with mindful eating and challenging where our ideas around mindful eating have come from – i.e. are they informed by diet culture or are you seeing it more as a process of discovery
  • We talk about comfort eating
  • We also discuss why it’s totally normal in the context of diet culture to want to lose weight with intuitive eating and how you can begin to unpack that desire
  • And why Intuitive Eating invites you to put down the pursuit of weight loss

As per, let us know your thoughts on this episode, and if you enjoyed it please drop 5 stars on Apple podcasts!

In this week's episode my guest, Isa Robinson and I are digging into some of the common myths and misconceptions around Intuitive Eating - aka - what the gym bros get wrong. We get into the nuance and subtleties of IE as a practice and discuss why it's so much more than the 'hunger and fullness diet'.

Some of the topics we cover include:

  • Whether Intuitive Eating really means eating ‘junk’ food all day long
  • If Intuitive Eating is a ‘healthy’ way to lose weight
  • If you can still learn to eat intuitively when your hunger cues have been messed up by diets
  • If Intuitive Eating is compatible with a health condition
  • How to get past the fear that you will 'freefall' or 'spiral' with Intuitive Eating

In this episode I'm being interviewed by friend and colleague Sarah Dempster about the pressure that parents face to raise 'perfect' eaters, from fertility and early pregnancy onwards. 

In this episode we discuss:

✨The messages we receive around nutrition and how these can add to the idea that there is a right and wrong way to eat for conception, pregnancy and beyond
✨Why feeding littles can be such an emotive topic
✨Why it's not your fault if your kid suddenly stops eating certain foods
✨ The long-term repercussions of such an intense focus on 'perfect' eating in childhood
✨ Why using food to soothe can be part of your emotional coping toolkit
✨Why we need to be critical about the messages we share around food and nutrition
✨ Why we need more person-centred care in nutrition and dietetics
