About a year ago, I started being interested in podcasts. I now play them during my commute in the car or on the subway. Since discovering podcasts, I have found many which focus on helping listeners heal their relationship with food and foster body positivity. Although there are many amazing podcasts out there, I thought I would present 4 podcasts I have really enjoyed.
Love, Food Podcast
by Julie Duffy Dillon
Julie is an award winning dietitian and food behaviour expert. In this unique podcast, Julie invites listeners to write letters to food explaining their complicated relationship with food and their body. She then addresses the main issues in the letters providing tips, insight and lots of compassion. She also invites various guests to provide their perspective and resources. Letters address various topics such a binge eating, emotional eating, weight preoccupation and diet culture. You can learn more and listen to the podcast here.
by Glenys Oysten and Aaron Flores
Glenys and Aaron are both dietitians who believe in promoting wellness from a Health at Every Size® and intuitive eating perspective. They discuss a variety of topics to inspire listeners to give up diets forever, embrace body respect and learn to eat intuitively. Both Aaron and Glenys talk a lot about their personal experiences with dieting and food obsession and how it led them to become HAES® dietitians. A truly amazing duo! Check them out here.
by Meret Boxler
Although this is a newer podcast, Life. Unrestricted. has quickly become a favourite in the body positivity/Health at Every Size® community. Meret describes herself as a "42 years old writer and ex-radio DJ that is currently on a mission to heal [her] mind and body from diet-culture." In this podcast, Meret invites fabulous guests to share their perspective on diet culture, Health at Every Size®, body acceptance, size discrimination and intuitive eating.
