S2; Ep. 10: Healing Your Relationship with Food / Eleonora Bastos


When it comes to transforming our bodies, food can be a prickly topic. If you struggling with calorie-counting or restrictive diets then you know how frustrating it can be to find balance. But what if you could get off the diet train forever and eat what you wanted without guilt or shame? 

On today's episode I'm chatting with Eleonora Bastos of The Diet Free Project about how we can heal our relationships with food once and for all. In this episode we are discussing: 

  • Cultural mixed messages that lead to body shame and unhealthy relationships with food. 

  • How body dysmorphia influences our self talk and body image. 

  • The emotional and psychological reasons we over-eat, binge or have hangups about food. 

  • The difference between stress eating and binge eating and why so many of us struggle in this area. 

  • Why you don't need to have an eating disorder to heal your relationship with food and your body. 

  • How stress impacts your nervous system and stifles your weight loss goals. 

  • How to eat for pleasure while staying healthy 

  • How to decide which foods are best for your body 

  • How to cultivate mindful eating habits so you feel satisfied and can avoid cravings.
