Happy New year team! Today I’m talking to the incredible Marci Evans about body image, self-acceptance, and food ‘addiction’. Marci is a certified EDRD, a body image healer, and intuitive eating counsellor. Our conversation is a great antidote to all the diet culture BS you’re seeing everywhere right now. We talk about why it’s so challenging to develop positive body image, what real body positivity actually means and thin privilege. We also look more closely at self-acceptance and self-compassion and why developing practices around these concepts can help you heal your body image. Finally we go deep on the science around the idea of food ‘addiction’ and discuss what the evidence really means; plus some ideas on how to help build a healthier relationship with foods you feel you might be addicted to.
