The holiday season is a time when diet culture ramp ups and can be difficult to navigate as an intuitive eater. If you aren’t sure how to handle triggering conversations around food and weight or feel nervous to set boundaries with friends and family, this episode is for you.
In today’s episode, I’m talking to Kirsten Ackerman, an Anti-Diet Registered Dietitian and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor. She is the Host of Intuitive Bites Podcast and runs her own virtual private practice helping women heal their relationships to food and body. In our powerful conversation, Kirsten speaks on how growing up her own personal biases and stigma with dieting and weight impacted her choice to become a dietician to heal her own disordered eating patterns.
She explains how to deal with caring, but nosey friends and family who question your eating habits during get-togethers, how to deal with triggering comments, and why it is important to center yourself and check in with your own body during the holidays. What does your body need and how can you honor it today?
