Ditch the Diet and Eat Intuitively with Megan Hadley
We all want to be healthy, but is dieting the answer? Diets have a high failure rate, and many side effects, not the least of which is an increase in stress response and a decrease in quality of life. That’s why episode 25 of The Positively Living Podcast is about ditching diet culture and eating intuitively!
In this episode of The Positively Living Podcast, Megan Hadley and I are sharing the importance of body positivity, curiosity, and self-awareness as it relates to the weight loss world we live in today. In our conversation, we cover:
- Dieting: what it is, why it doesn’t work, and what you can do about it.
- How everything about diet culture is asking us to be disconnected from what we need and how we can care for ourselves best.
- The debunked myths that weight correlates to health and how behaviors are the real indicators.
- Studies and data that may surprise you about BMI indicators and one of the most frustrating things for all dieters: that weight loss is a predictor of weight gain.
I find that a support system to go with trusted resources will help you most. If you are ready to ditch the diet, whether you’re dipping your toe in the pool or diving into the deep end head first, I highly recommend following Megan on social media and through her website simplenutritioncounseling.com.
