Welcome to this special series of Don’t Salt My Game celebrating the release of my new book How to Just Eat It. For the next several weeks, I’ll be posting two new episodes of the podcast (Tuesdays and Fridays) that correspond with a chapter of the book to help you take your learning further and deepen your intuitive eating practice. How To Just Eat It is out now! Episode 12 of this series will drop on Friday 12th Jan!

 

In today’s episode, I’m talking to Jake Gifford, a personal trainer and doctoral researcher at Brunel University London whose aim is to reframe fitness and what it means to move our bodies. In this episode, we’re talking about the bigger-picture and socio-political considerations that often get left out of the conversations about movement. 

 

In this episode we talk about:

 

  • How a lot of public health rhetorics around moving our bodies make oversimplified recommendations 
  • Healthism
  • Some of the problematic discourse around how exercise is described e.g. “exercise is medicine” 
  • Looking at the bigger picture of movement
  • Factors that could stop an individual from engaging in movement
  • Hierarchies of exercise - and why they’re problematic
  • How to make movement more inclusive
  • Issues with movement being associated with morality
  • Structural and social determinants of health

 

Jake talks us through how movement has historically been associated with moral righteousness and personal responsibility; as well what we can do to shift the narrative so ensure it becomes more inclusive and accessible.

Welcome to this special series of Don’t Salt My Game celebrating the release of my new book How to Just Eat It. For the next several weeks, I’ll be posting two new episodes of the podcast (Tuesdays and Fridays) that correspond with a chapter of the book to help you take your learning further and deepen your intuitive eating practice. How To Just Eat It is out now! Episode 11 of this series will drop on Tuesday 9th Feb!

In today’s episode I’m talking to Tally Rye. Tally is a London-based Personal Trainer and Content Creator, who specialises in weight-inclusive, non-diet fitness. She is also the Author of the book ‘Train Happy’ and hosts the ‘Train Happy’ podcast.  In this episode we’re talking in-depth about all of the principles of Intuitive Movement. Tally shares her experience and advice on how we can reframe exercise in a way that feels good for us, rather than it feeling like a punishment. 

In this episode we talk about:

  • The principles of Intuitive Movement
  • Reframing the way we think about exercise
  • Ways movement can be a tool for self-care
  • The problem with fitness watches/trackers
  • How diet culture has co-opted mainstream fitness
  • Why we might have a complicated relationship with movement

Tally shares how one of the biggest benefits of Intuitive Movement is regaining valuable headspace that has been lost to diet culture; through numbers or counting or “rules”, and how we can channel that back into the really meaningful parts of our lives.

Welcome to this special series of Don’t Salt My Game celebrating the release of my new book How to Just Eat It. For the next several weeks, I’ll be posting two new episodes of the podcast (Tuesdays and Fridays) that correspond with a chapter of the book to help you take your learning further and deepen your intuitive eating practice. How To Just Eat It is out now! Episode 10 of this series will drop on Friday 5th Feb!

In today’s episode, Laura gives us the run down of Chapter 9 of How to Just Eat It - Feeling your Fullness. Laura gives some useful tips on how we can reframe our negative thoughts when we start to feel uncomfortable with feelings of fullness, as well as why ‘what I eat in a day videos’ need to get to fuck!

In this episode we talk about:

  • Feelings of fullness
  • How Diet Culture has distorted our idea of how much food we really need 
  • Why ‘what I eat in a day’ videos are problematic
  • How we can reframe fear mongering language around feelings of fullness 
  • Tips on what to do when struggling with feelings of fullness

Laura explains how learning about fullness is a process and something that we don’t need to get ‘perfect’ every time. She reiterates that throughout this journey, self-kindness and compassion are key.
