95: "I can't stop eating even though I'm full" Non-diet tricks to leave food on your plate

1/8/2024
Do you find yourself eating beyond the point of fullness, leaving you feeling bloated and heavy? I've been there. I know the feeling of needing to eat everything on your plate, or being unsure when you'll allow yourself to eat next - which often results in overeating or bingeing to the point of discomfort. Sometimes, you'll eat more than you planned - and that's okay! If you struggle with feeling guilty when this happens, go back and revisit episode 54 here: What to do after a binge. Beating yourself up about what you've already eaten won't help - in fact, it will lead to more yo-yo dieting, food obsession and emotional eating later on. Instead, to help you better tune into your hunger and fullness signals, and prevent overeating, I'm sharing my top evidence-based tips so you can begin to stop eating when you notice you feel full. I share my strategies for learning how to leave food on your plate if you've had enough, so you can start eating to your hunger levels and feeling good after eating.

93: Ditch toxic resolutions & set goals for lasting change

12/25/2023
I once fell into the trap of setting wildly ambitious New Year's resolutions that fizzled out before February even whispered hello. It's a familiar story, isn't it? Contrary to popular belief, New Year’s resolutions are not just glorified ‘to do’ items for the first week of January. The New Year can actually be a magical opportunity for small mental shifts that can bring about meaningful change. Each year, around 69% of Aussies make at least one New Year’s Resolution but only around a quarter of us actually stick to our good intentions and achieve the results. Well, I say this year can be different. Here’s how to set New Year’s resolutions that actually stick.

89: How to talk to someone with an eating disorder

11/27/2023
At just 12 years of age, Jaimee Krawitz struggled with an eating disorder and had no idea how to communicate how she was feeling to her friends and family. It's a tricky conversation for adults, let alone a child! Jaimee is now a counsellor who has dedicated her work to transforming the dialogue around eating disorders. Because what should you say to someone with an eating disorder? What language is helpful? It is so important we take the time to find out, rather than saying nothing at all and adding loneliness to an already incredibly lonely time. At the core of her mission lies the belief that language can be a powerful tool to nurture understanding, reduce stigma, and promote positive mental well-being, specifically in the context of eating disorders among young people. Whether you're a parent, teacher, or healthcare professional, you're sure to find an abundance of practical tips to help you navigate these often challenging conversations. I'd love you to share this episode with friends and family, widening the network of support to those living with eating disorders. Want to know more about Jaimee's work?

11/20/2023
Have you been wondering about weight loss drugs? Have you read stories of celebrity weight loss and caught yourself thinking is ozempic actually worth it? Or better still...what is ozempic? Ozempic, a medication initially concocted for blood glucose control but remarketed for weight loss due to its surprising effect. This drug, is injected weekly and works by mimicking the GLP1 hormone and suppressing your appetite. So wait, what's the catch? Oh, there are some not-so-fun side effects... This episode is not a place where I will be shaming anyone who is considering weight loss drugs or have tried them in the past. But a place to remove the diet culture BS and give you the information you NEED, to be able to make informed choices about YOUR life. The world is changing rapidly, and I think this is only the beginning of weight loss medications.

It's time to challenge the diet mentality and embrace a life after restriction, calorie counting and 5am boot camps... unless you LOVE 5am boot camps, then they can absolutely stay. Let's get back to listening to your hunger, the importance of trusting your body's signals, conducting micro-experiments with food and building a sense of trust around your food choices.

Have you ever wrestled with the idea of intuitive eating, only to find yourself buried under weight gain concerns and that pesky voice in your head leading you back to dieting?

Especially if people are on different stages of their own journey in rebuilding their relationships with food and their bodies. But I can't help but often think this is where we lose people back to diet land.

Ever wondered why French women don't get fat, despite their love of good food? Well you aren't alone. There was even a whole book about it. First published in 2004, "French Women Don't Get Fat" by Mireille Guiliano has been translated into 40 languages and sold over 3 million copies worldwide. This book is all about the French's unique approach to eating, which combines a love for satiating full-fat meals, an appreciation for their culinary heritage, a love of cooking and an untainted enjoyment of what they eat. Sound familiar? Focusing on satisfying foods? Cooking at home? Enjoying your food minus the guilt? Is it possible to enjoy food without guilt and still maintain a healthy lifestyle? This episode is more than just an exploration of French eating habits. It's another notch in our belt against diet culture, aiming for a healthier and more joyful relationship with food. So, are you ready to redefine your eating habits and fall in love with food all over again? Once you've listened, you'll be inspired to start cooking at home more... so here are some FREE budget friendly recipes for you. EDIT: No doubt 'Why French Women Don't Get Fat' is 100% a diet book. While eating satisfying foods is something I am a HUGE fan of, there certainly is a lot I don’t agree with in the book. I definitely don’t subscribe or endorse this book or pathetic diet leek soup (which tastes like watery onion nonething-ness). Want to feel more in control around food? My FREE webinar has my top 4 strategies to help you stop overeating. Looking for more support to feel in control around food? I'd love to support you in my Binge Free Academy.

84: My anxiety breakthroughs! How I manage and thrive with anxiety 13 years after diagnosis

10/23/2023
I was told by my doctor that I had clinical anxiety back in 2010 and the diagnosis came as a complete shock. But now, I can see that the writing was on the wall. For months, I had stopped wanting to socialise. When someone would text me asking to hang, I’d see it as a burden. Everything felt like a chore, I didn’t want to do anything. But I'm happy to say, things have changed A LOT since 2010. The anxiety I was experiencing went from out of control, to manageable, to mild and now finally has disappeared. I knew something was finally different when instead of staring at the back of my eyelids, my brain racing like a treadmill on top speed, I fell asleep. No dread. No angst. No catastrophising. No over analysing. It was the first time in decades. And it wasn’t a one off either, but a succession of nights. The only other time my anxiety had disappeared was during my previous pregnancy, and here, pregnant with my second it was happening again. Was it hormones? A coincidence? Was alcohol causing my anxiety? Let's unpack my anxiety breakthroughs along my journey from diagnosis to thriving. Ps. Wondering what kind of drinker you are? Take my FREE QUIZ.

83: Are you eating TOO MUCH or NOT ENOUGH? You might be surprised by the results.

10/16/2023
You often hear dieters say "I really don't eat that much. I have no idea why I can't lose weight". As a past dieter, I know how much I was very religiously sticking to my very few calories that I was allowing myself to have, eating very lightly and not getting anywhere. I would see these diets and meal plans and think 'how do people eat this much?!' But the truth is diet culture BS has made it SO hard to even know how much you should be eating. Are you eating too much or not enough? You know it – and I know it – you can’t live your fullest life on an empty stomach. You’re meant for great things but you can’t reach your potential or live your best life when all you think about is food. Constantly worrying about how much you ate or whether you’re eating the ‘right’ things distracts you from all the important shit you were put on this earth to do! And we can’t have that, because the world needs what you’ve got to share. Lucky for us, our body has delightful inbuilt systems that can give us all the answers. We just need to learn how to listen. Want help with binge or emotional eating? I think you'll get a lot of value from my FREE 5-day course, in which I teach you strategies that helped me to skip the cravings and feel in control around food.
