This week we’re talking to Melanie Knights, a self-published author, fat positive artist, and host of the Entrepreneurial Outlaws Podcast. She supports creative entrepreneurs in building successful, fulfilling, soul-aligned and inclusive businesses.Melanie describes her work as being the entrepreneurial intersection of strategy + spirituality + self-inquiry. She advocates for slow business, one that serves your lifestyle on your own terms, and encourages folks to re-write the usual marketing rules while challenging the status quo of modern entrepreneurship.We had an amazing conversation with Melanie about business and entrepreneurship, and also about fat visibility & fitting into spaces where we might not typically belong – not just with the size & shapes of our bodies, but also with our personality types, preferences, and values.Melanie also shares her inspiration and a sneak peak at her brand new sticker collection: Fat Gurl Stickers – stickers and stationery designed to represent diverse bodies eating, walking, sunbathing, playing, and living.Here's where you can find Melanie:WebsiteInstagramTik TokPintrestYou can stay up to date on all things Satisfaction Factor by following us on IG @satisfactionfactorpod!Here's where to find us:Sadie Simpson: www.sadiesimpson.com or IG @thesadiesimpsonNaomi Katz: www.happyshapes.co or IG @happyshapesnaomiFor this episode's transcript, visit: www.satisfactionfactorpod.com
This week, we're breaking down some of the most common forms of hidden dieting behaviors that we see in our work. Because even when we've started to disengage from the concept of dieting for weight loss, some of these behaviors can stick around & have a pretty significant impact on our relationships to both food & our bodies. As always, noticing these things is the first step to making changes, so in this episode we're: identifying 10 common hidden dieting behaviors (plus a bonus behavior that ties them all together!); discussing the origins of these behaviors & how they might be keeping us stuck in diet culture; and offering a framework for how we can recognize sneaky diet behaviors that might not be on this list. You can stay up to date on all things Satisfaction Factor by following us on IG @satisfactionfactorpod!Here's where to find us:Sadie Simpson: www.sadiesimpson.com or IG @thesadiesimpsonNaomi Katz: www.happyshapes.co or IG @happyshapesnaomiFor this episode's transcript, visit: www.satisfactionfactorpod.com

This week, we're wrapping up our 4 episode mini-series on the eating personas with a look at The Intuitive Eater.  Spoiler alert! "Becoming an Intuitive Eater" is not actually about reaching a single endpoint, and it's definitely not just about eating when you're hungry and stopping when you're full. Instead, a practice of Intuitive Eating is about cultivating certain skills that can help us to be more resilient to diet culture. This skillset includes: critical thinking, meeting our needs (for food & a whole lot more), autonomy & self-trust, letting go of perfection, and breaking out of binary thinking. In this episode we break down all of these skills, and discuss how a practice of Intuitive Eating is way more about how we move through the world than it is about what or how we choose to eat.You can stay up to date on all things Satisfaction Factor by following us on IG @satisfactionfactorpod!Here's where you can sign up for Naomi's 1:1 Intuitive Eating coaching waitlist!For all the information about Sadie's upcoming in-person 12-week group Intuitive Eating program at the Black Mountain YMCA, click here or email Sadie for more info - sadie@sadiesimpson.com!Here's where to find more info about us:Sadie Simpson: www.sadiesimpson.com or IG @sadiemsimpsonNaomi Katz: www.happyshapes.co or IG @happyshapesnaomiFor this episode's transcript, visit: www.satisfactionfactorpod.com
This week, we're continuing our 4 episode mini-series on the eating personas with a look at The Professional Dieter.  The Professional Dieter is someone who has tried many weight loss programs (Noom, WW, Keto, Whole 30), thinks a lot about what they “should” be doing to lose weight, has lost, gained, and lost the same X pounds multiple times, may be someone who regularly has cheat meals/cheat days, and knows the calories, points, or portion sizes for many foods. In this episode we discuss: the difference between being anti-diet culture vs. anti-people-who-diet; the health impacts of weight cycling or yo-yo dieting; the overlap between chronic dieting & disordered eating; and some tools for breaking out of the Professional Dieter mentality.You can stay up to date on all things Satisfaction Factor by following us on IG @satisfactionfactorpod!Here's where you can get all the info about Sadie's free Intro to Intuitive Eating workshop at the Black Mountain YMCA!Here's where you can sign up for Naomi's 1:1 Intuitive Eating coaching waitlist!Here's where to find more info about us:Sadie Simpson: www.sadiesimpson.com or IG @thesadiesimpsonNaomi Katz: www.happyshapes.co or IG @happyshapesnaomiFor this episode's transcript, visit: www.satisfactionfactorpod.com
This week, we're continuing our 4 episode mini-series on the eating personas with a look at The Unconscious Eater. This eating style consists of 4 subtypes: The Chaotic Eater, The Waste-Not Eater, The Refuse-Not Eater, and The Emotional Eater. In this episode we discuss: what characteristics distinguish The Unconscious Eater persona, how these eating personas can show up as stress responses & how that can actually be a useful tool, the overlaps between many of these eating personas, and how this persona benefits from things like self-care, stress management, boundaries, and planning.You can stay up to date on all things Satisfaction Factor by following us on IG @satisfactionfactorpod!Here's where you can get all the info about Sadie's free Intro to Intuitive Eating workshop at the Black Mountain YMCA!Here's where you can sign up for Naomi's 1:1 Intuitive Eating coaching waitlist!Here's where to find more info about us:Sadie Simpson: www.sadiesimpson.com or IG @thesadiesimpsonNaomi Katz: www.happyshapes.co or IG @happyshapesnaomiFor this episode's transcript, visit: www.satisfactionfactorpod.com

In this episode we discuss: what characteristics distinguish The Careful Eater persona, how careful eating can be a way of coping with feeling out of control, the fine line between careful eating and disordered eating, and how this persona interacts with food sensitivities & intolerances.You can stay up to date on all things Satisfaction Factor by following us on IG @satisfactionfactorpod!Here's where to find us & information about our 1:1 Intuitive Eating coaching offerings:Sadie Simpson: www.sadiesimpson.com or IG @thesadiesimpsonNaomi Katz: www.happyshapes.co or IG @happyshapesnaomiFor this episode's transcript, visit: www.satisfactionfactorpod.comReferenced in this episode:Intuitive Eating Counselor DirectoryNational Eating Disorder Association (NEDA)Carolina Resource Center for Eating DisordersAlliance for Eating Disorder AwarenessProject HEAL
This week, we're deconstructing the common diet culture concepts of authority, discipline, and accountability. In particular, we're looking at: what systems are being upheld by these concepts; how these concepts can interfere with our self-trust and autonomy; how we address these concepts within our work with clients; and how interrogating the language we use can help us better identify & meet our needs.You can stay up to date on all things Satisfaction Factor by following us on IG @satisfactionfactorpod!Here's where to find us:Sadie Simpson: www.sadiesimpson.com or IG @thesadiesimpsonNaomi Katz: www.happyshapes.co or IG @happyshapesnaomiFor this episode's transcript, visit: www.satisfactionfactorpod.com
This week, we're each sharing some recent personal experiences of being confronted by diet culture, and discussing how we've both built the skills to talk back to diet culture over the years. There's a common misconception that being able to talk back to diet culture requires bravery. The good news? It doesn't! In this episode we're talking about: how responding to diet culture & assumptions about our bodies is a skill that evolves over time; the privilege associated with feeling safe in these conversations; and how to cultivate confidence when having tricky conversations.You can stay up to date on all things Satisfaction Factor by following us on IG @satisfactionfactorpod!Here's where to find us:Sadie Simpson: www.sadiesimpson.com or IG @thesadiesimpsonNaomi Katz: www.happyshapes.co or IG @happyshapesnaomiFor this episode's transcript, visit: www.satisfactionfactorpod.com
This week, we're talking to Kelly Cutchin of Casual Magic Writing. We had the pleasure of talking to Kelly about all things self-expression, including: how diet culture robs us of belonging, how discipline is a tool of oppression, and how writing is a place where everyone fits.Kelly should’ve been named YELLY because she's never not exclaiming something! She's a writer, writing coach, and founder of the Casual Magic Writing Community, a space where folks gather to express themselves fully and on purpose. Kelly is the unruly broad who sees you exactly as you are while creating a space for you to finally declare who you want to be by telling *all* your stories and showing yourself (and everyone else) exactly who you are. Breaking News, pals: templates for How to Write Well are a scam, and so is the belief that you have to be “talented” to write. You're invited to hang out with Kelly while she bust some myths about who gets to be creative, what it takes to be a writer, and why you’re way more creative than you think.You can find learn more about Kelly and Casual Magic Writing on Instagram @kelly.m.cutchin and @casualmagicwriting, and on her website casualmagicwriting.com.You can stay up to date on all things Satisfaction Factor by following us on IG @satisfactionfactorpod!Here's where to find us:Sadie Simpson: www.sadiesimpson.com or IG @thesadiesimpsonNaomi Katz: www.happyshapes.co or IG @happyshapesnaomiFor this episode's transcript, visit: www.satisfactionfactorpod.com
This week's episode is a little bit different  and special episode for many reasons, one being we’re interviewing Sadie’s, older sister Rev. Carrie Carpenter! With today being the first day of Lent (Ash Wednesday) we wanted to talk to Carrie about diet culture and how it shows up in church culture, specifically this time of year when it’s a common religious practice for folks to either fast or give up specific foods for Lent…which can be triggering for those with a disordered relationship with food.Carrie shares with us how she observes Lent as a clergyperson in the United Methodist Church, and how, for her, it’s not necessarily about fasting or giving things up; instead, it’s about being reflective and more intentional. It’s also about observing where there are needs that need to be met within her community, finding opportunities to consider how to live into grace, care for the people who are on the far margins of our society, and have authentic conversations about reconciliation and restoration.…and that it’s not all about giving up candy and potato chips for 40 daysWe also chat with Carrie about other ways diet culture intersects with church culture and have a mini-exploration of faith-based diet books and programs: The Daniel Plan, Eat and Stay Thin: Simple, Spiritual, Satisfying Weight Control, The Weigh Down, and more!

We're chatting about: how making friends as an adult can be hard (and why we really think there should be a dating app for friendships); why social media is actually a great (and very underrated) way to make new friends; how ditching diet culture makes us more selective & intentional about cultivating deeper friendships; the importance of cultivating community with people who share our values; and so much more!  You can stay up to date on all things Satisfaction Factor by following us on IG @satisfactionfactorpod!Here's where to find us:Sadie Simpson: www.sadiesimpson.com or IG @thesadiesimpsonNaomi Katz: www.happyshapes.co or IG @happyshapesnaomiFor this episode's transcript, visit: www.satisfactionfactorpod.com

In this week's episode, Naomi & Sadie are talking about beauty standards: what they are, how they’re harmful, and how we can approach certain beauty rituals in an autonomous way that gives us the freedom to decide what we actually want to be doing vs. what society expects us to do in regards to our appearance. We also cover Hype House, grey hair, and how being told you look younger than you are is a weird compliment to receive. Plus, we’ve shared before that complimenting weight isn’t a great idea because it upholds societal standards that smaller is better (which is inaccurate). But what about complimenting someone’s hair?  Or their clothes? Or their overall attractiveness? Is that okay?
