What would it look like if we approached food, eating, and how we view our bodies not with restriction, fear, and shame, but rather with love and compassion? Lucky for us, someone can show us how. Jenna Hollenstein, MS, RDN, CDN is a non-diet dietitian, meditation teacher, and the author of the book: Eat to Love - A Mindful Guide to Transforming Your Relationship with Food, Body, and Life.
I don't normally pre-order books but when I saw this one being promoted by Susan Piver on Facebook, I jumped.
I wasn't disappointed, and you won't be either by this conversation. Jenna is warm, knowledgable, and a delight to speak with about disordered eating, the dangers of 'magical eating', and what we can do to cultivate compassion for ourselves and our bodies.
What you'll learn about intuitive eating (or why you should care):
• What the heck is 'magical eating' and why the diet industry is hell-bent on selling it to you
• How mindfulness and intuitive eating can bring peace to your relationship with food and your body
• Why diets don't work and what you can do instead
• How meditation can transform your hunger and fullness awareness
