Jessica Rothley on PCOS, Hormones, and Diet Culture

Podcast (7).png

This week on the podcast I am bringing you another guest episode! I am so excited Jess Rothley (@whollyhealed) wanted to sit down with me for a second time to talk about all things Hormones, PCOS, and diet culture.

In this episode we dig into PCOS (and the two different types), Estrogen Set Point (how each body has a different one and why it relates to how we are fueling ourselves), lowering stress (and how your body might not see exercise as a stress relief in the same way you do), why we should stop shaming our cravings (and why they are important), symptoms of underfueling yourself, what qualifies as a diet, how losing weight and restricting calories can actually harm our health, and more.

A little about Jess: Jess is a Certified Eating Psychology Coach who specializes in Functional Endocrinology. She is passionate about empowering women in their health journeys in a way that is size inclusive and diet culture exclusive. You can catch her discussing the taboo topics of women's health, body image, and society in her signature series #WHTabooTuesday on Instagram or posting pictures of her dog Kevin.

I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as i did!

Naomi on Binge Eating and Dropping out of Diet Culture

Podcast (2).png

This week on the podcast I am bringing you my FIRST guest episode of season 2.. an amazing interview/conversation with Naomi (@dietculturesucks).

On this episode we dig into how Naomi got to a place of body acceptance and out of the diet culture mentality. Why she doesn’t think we need to love our bodies all of the time to recover. How much time/brainspace diet culture steals from us. Self care and how we can expand the definition. How binge eating/emotional eating is demonized in diet culture and how we can start removing the shame around eating. How to be curious about our behaviors, thoughts, and feelings rather than judging them. Thin privilege, fat phobia and so much more.

A little about Naomi: Naomi is a former marathoner and diet culture dropout who chronicles her experiences with eating disorders, exercise addiction, dieting, and binge eating on her insta blog @dietculturesucks. She is passionate about body positivity and Health At Every Size. She writes to share the things she wishes she learned as a young girl struggling to recover in a culture that validates disordered behaviors as normal aspects of being a woman.

I hope you enjoy this episode!!
