Why our bodies are hardwired against dieting with Caroline Dooner

Caroline Dooner is a full-time writer on the subject of food obsession and how to heal from it. She spent years as a performer, trying really hard to fit into the tiny/beautiful category. Shebelieved she was a food addict, and so she dieted like it was her job (because it kind of was), and hoped it would help her meet her destiny, but all it did was crush her soul and hurt her body. Now she runs her amazing business calledThe F*ck It Dietand writesabout our relationship to food and weight. I can’t wait for you to listen to her story, including her epiphany on her 24th birthday that kicked off her f*ck-it-diet-journey. We talk all about why restricting food, especially carbs and sugar, makes us MORE insulin resistant and more obsessed with food, as well as how to start taking your power back and heal your relationship to food on a physical, emotional and mental level.

3 reasons you may feel stuck with intuitive eating and how to get un-stuck

Welcome to Own it Babe, a podcast about an unconventional approach to health that isn’t about counting calories and killing yourself in the gym, but rather an approach to food that is rooted in intuitive eating, food freedom, and body acceptance. This episode is based around questions I get a TON from students in my online course as well as my lovely followers on Instagram that slide into my DMs. It’s a question along the lines of “I’ve been trying to eat intuitively and felt it was going well for a while. I love being able to eat my favorite foods again, but now I am stuck! I am so tempted to go back to dieting, because everyone around me is doing the Whole30. I feel I am gaining weight and I also feel hungry all the time and I am so overwhelmed with food choices and omg I don’t think I can do this. What should I do, please help!” In this episode, I will be going through 3 reasons you may feel stuck on your anti-diet journey and how you can overcome those obstacles like the b...

How to avoid the social media comparison trap

It’s no news that we feel crappy when we compare our lives to other people’s lives on social media. I feel like a lot of people are talking about this and preaching to not compare ourselves. Personally, I know on a rational level that I should stop comparing myself. Yet, I’ve had a hard time putting it into practice until I actually understood comparison on social media on a much deeper level. In this episode, I am diving deeper into what it actually means to compare ourselves, because I don’t want this to be just another reminder to, ya know, “not compare yourself” and that’s about it. I want this to clarify how comparison actually impacts our everyday life in a negative way and share 3 things I do to snap out of comparison mode as soon as I detect it. If this episode was helpful for you, share it with someone you love or share a screen shot to your Instagram stories and tag me, @ownitbabe, so I can come say hello and personally thank you!!

Why people-pleasing causes anxiety and how to own who you are with Shaun Frey

Today’s episode is a special one, because I am interviewing my husband Shaun on: * how to start building your confidence and stop listening to your inner critic* how to stop comparing your life to other people’s lives* how to stop beating yourself up if things go wrong or not your way* what to do if people/parents/friends don’t approve of your life decisions* how to know if what you’re doing is for you or for the validation of other people* navigating body image in your relationship, specifically when it comes to feeling insecure about weight gain (it get’s really juicy at minute 40:00!) I did an episode with Shaun before which was all about him supporting me on my recovery journey and dealing with negative body image in a relationship. It’s episode #7, so you don’t have to go back too too far to have a listen. (It’s worth it and one of the most downloaded episodes to date!) I have been with Shaun for almost 7 years and have known him for almost 9 years, so I have seen him e...

Chronic invisible illnesses and why it’s important to have more empathy, with Danie van Kay

Today’s guest is Danie van Kay, body positive facilitator, health coach and eating disorder intuitive therapy coach. She is an anorexia survivor and she suffers from chronic Lyme Disease, which I didn’t know much about until I chatted with her, so needless to say she is working hard to raise awareness for chronic invisible illnesses, like Lyme Disease and I am so glad to introduce you to her today. Her story is an inspiring example of resilience, positivity and strength and I can’t wait for you to listen to my chat with her. We talk about chronic invisible illnesses and why so many of them go unnoticed AND are also accompanied by disordered eating. Danie shares her rock bottom moment with her eating disorder and what her recovery and nutritional rehabilitation looked like (her re-feeding process of eating ‘all the things’). We also talk about the importance of body neutrality and how you can apply it to your life especially on bad body image days. If you enjoy this podcast, mak...

Chronic invisible illnesses and why it’s important to have more empathy, with Danie van Kay

The biggest mistake I made when I stopped dieting

Today’s solo episode is very near and dear to my heart, because I will be sharing with you how I overcame my mindset of perfectionism with food, the mistakes I made while I was trying to recover from orthorexia – an obsession with eating healthy and, let’s be honest, an obsession with dieting – and how I allowed myself to finally relax around food and stop dieting for good. This episode will be super helpful for you if you’re currently in the mindset of “I just don’t understand, I am SO good with everything else, I do great at work, I am a good mother/daughter/friend/partner/human, I work so hard everywhere else, why can’t I control myself around food, why is my body constantly getting in the way of me trying to “eat healthy”? I think what I will be telling you here might be pretty mind blowing and not what you’d expect to hear. Because I won’t be telling you to “just try dieting harder”, to “just cut out more sugar, dairy or gluten”, to exercise harder, or whatever ...

Anxiety – conquering, dealing with + living with this constant companion

Hey everyone and welcome back to the Own it Babe podcast. How are you?? I took a little bit of a break this past week, wasn’t hanging out on Instagram much, didn’t do much work and feel like I haven’t talked to you in forever! I hope you are doing well and maybe not going through what I’m going through right now. OMG, that sounded so dramatic, right? Today’s episode is about anxiety and some important thoughts I want to pass on to you when it comes to dealing with it. Obvi, today’s episode is not a substitute for mental health treatment, because this is solely based on my experience with my mental health journey, therapy, medication, etc. Before I let you listen, I have one announcement to make: My new online program Fearless Food Freedom Blueprint is finally out in the world. If you need help with stopping the vicious cycle of dieting, restriction and then binge eating, eating past fullness or emotional eating, but you want to stop feeling stuck and helpless, this program is ...

Why your brain needs 3 cups of pasta per day to function properly, with Kathleen Meehan

Hey everyone and welcome to the Own it Babe Podcast! First off, I want to thank all of you for the amazing feedback and messages I received after my episode last week. I totally did not plan on giving you a 20 minute life update and rambling away on what’s going on in my brain, but clearly it resonated with a lot of you, so I am glad I shared the episode despite feeling a bit nervous or even embarrassed by what I shared… Today’s episode is an amazing one if you are currently thinking about starting to eat intuitively or you have been doing it for a while, but are confused about how to understand the research behind it or are still tempted by nutrition articles that suggest to cut out certain foods or eat in a way that doesn’t really comply with the Intuitive Eating Principles. Today’s guest Kathleen Meehan is passionate about working with people as they learn to listen to their bodies for guidance to discover what feels good. With an undergraduate degree and a masters degree in...
