This week Lauren and Jenna discuss the realities of self acceptance in a world that is obsessed with looks, weight and "fitting in".

Is it fully necessary to accept everything as is? Are there times or considerations where fitting in or conforming is useful? 

What is YOUR line when it comes to makeup, hair, clothes and other things that fall into the category of changing the way you look?

This is all discussed in this episode and the conclusions may surprise you!


This conversation may surprise you. Jenna and Lauren discuss instances and nuances where "restriction" may be suitable in the intuitive eating process.

Please note: Anything discussed is not a recommendation for anyone, simply examples of the nuance of this work.

Lauren and Jenna talk about the Spotlight Effect. Ever wonder why you feel like everyone is looking at you or judging you? You walk into a grocery store or get on public transportation and you immediately think that of course everyone is judging the way your body looks etc... If you have ever felt this. Tune into this episode and learn more about the spotlight effect and what skills you can take on to tackle this! 

If you enjoy the pod, we would so appreciate if you could rate/review so we can spread the UnDiet message! 

Jenna and Lauren discuss a reel that starts off sounding non-diet but quickly turns into tricky and more subtle than usual diet tips. 

This kind of messaging is so common lately now that obvious diet marketing is on the out, it is no longer trendy so diet 'pros' are now using popular language and techniques to sell dieting in sheep's clothing.

Tune in to hear the example and learn how to spot diet messaging.

This week on How to Love Your Body, we have a discussion around belonging in a dieting world.

Our community of UnDieter's have done some serious rebellious things (according to society). We choose not to diet even though the world tells us to. But does this mean we dislike dieters and they don't belong?

Some choose to not dye their grays or get lipo. But does that mean the people that do choose to do these things are bad and wrong and don't belong?

Everyone belongs somewhere but maybe we don't have to belong EVERYWHERE.

This week Lauren and Jenna discuss a tv show that just feels tone deaf, a dieting app that we all love to hate (but never seems to die) and some uses of intuitive eating that are WAY off base.

It's 2022 and we are ready for the world to catch up!

This week on How to Love Your Body, we dive into a conversation about the difference between nutritional consideration vs nutritional obsession.

This isn't about what the person next to you in putting (or not putting) in their bodies.

This is about what feels best to you AND the autonomy you have to choose what you put in your body. No good/ bad, right/ wrong. It's your body.

We brought up this conversation to dive even deeper into why you do the things you do. It's okay to consider nutrition but when will you draw the line before it turns into nutritional obsession?

Tune in to this week's podcast to assess the amount of freedom you have around food and the choices you make.
