15 ways I learned to love my body

6/29/2022
Lyndi used to hate her body. Like really hate her body. But no matter what she weighed, it was never good enough. Every time she overate, felt guilty and loathed her body even more. Eventually she realised, her weight was never the problem. The problem was a lack of self-acceptance. So how do you go from hating your body to loving it? It doesn’t happen overnight, or even after a week of nights. If you’ve been hating your body for years, it’s going to take some time to repair that...

6/27/2022
Like with all things in the health space, there is a lot of confusing information out there.

Does your mum criticise your body? Listen to this.

6/22/2022
Lyndi has spoken to many women who tell a similar story and ask “how can I stop my mum commenting on or criticising my weight and body?” So it's time to tackle it on the podcast. Because remember when people comment on your weight or body – or criticise how you look – it stays with you and affects your self-confidence and relationship with food. It does more harm than good. The truth is that IF your mum is commenting on your weight or criticising your body and food choices – it says a lot...

6/20/2022
As grocery prices continue to rise, many people are having to reassess what they are putting in their carts. In this episode we had a great listener question from Erin, about how to the overcome fear or worry around using 'normal' and cost effective ingredients like flour, real butter or full fat meats. Do you really need to spend extra money on honey, or is sugar a good alternative? Spoiler alert: the real ‘health food aisle’ is you find where real, whole foods. Foods that don’t cost the...

I have to "finish everything off my plate". Wellness or Wankery?

6/13/2022
From the moment you were born, you intuitively knew how much food your body needed to get enough energy. You cried when you were hungry and stopped eating when you were satisfied. You did not need a meal plan to tell you the best way to eat for your blood type or a diet book to guide your eating. You were born understanding how to best fuel your body so that you thrived, grew strong and healthy. But for many of us, we have lost this. Being told to always finish everything on your plate,...

‘Bouncing back’ after baby, and other BS

6/8/2022
The beautiful, the brutal and the downright ugly. Before Lyndi physically birthed a tiny boy she was blissfuly ignorant about the realities of motherhood. Of course as a dietitian by profession, she was aware of the nutritional requirements for breastfeeding but only now having experienced it herself does she truly understand the insatiable omnipresent hunger. The rude shock of childbirth and its groundswell of hormones and emotions, instantaneously gave way to the even ruder one of being...

But this definitely applies for Lyndi, Jenna and our listener of the week, Gabi, who sent this question across. While your parents may have said or done things accidentally that impacted your relationship with food (making it harder to enjoy food without guilt, stop eating when you feel full and love your body), you can help raise your...

Am I addicted to sugar?

5/25/2022
Do you feel like you’re addicted to sugar? If you get sweet cravings, it sure can feel that way. Today, 70% of the products in grocery stores have added sugar.

Am I on a diet or eating intuitively? Wellness or Wankery?

5/23/2022
Diets don’t work – 96% of them fail long-term. So why are more people on a diet than ever? Welcome to a brave new ‘wellness’ world where diets are dressed up and paraded as a ‘healthy lifestyle choice’ or ‘a way of eating’. This sly rebrand tricks you into thinking you’re doing the “right thing” for your body. But diets, like the Atkins Diet, Cabbage Soup Diet and Lemon Detox Diet to name a few I’ve tried over the years, were much less damaging when they said what they were on the tin...

How much am I allowed to eat? Wellness or Wankery?

5/16/2022
23 almonds. 2 cheese slices. ½ cup pasta. 21 grapes. A virtuous way of eating, or a gazillion reasons to have an untrusting relationship with food? Portion control. It’s something we’ve been taught. A system that can help us eat correctly. A way to lose weight. A means for exercising willpower. But the clue to its insidious inflicted misery is in the second half of the name. Control. Portion control creates shame and guilt about what we eat. It makes food a moral issue. It amplifies our...

It's here! The first official episode of the No Wellness Wankery podcast... and we are starting with a doozy. "I feel fat". ‘Feeling fat’ is something Lyndi & Jenna know too well. For Lyndi, it was triggered by a number of things, like seeing a photo of herself where she looked much bigger than she wanted to, feeling uncomfortable in her clothes, scrolling social media and comparing herself to others. Or after a weekend of eating more than she planned or not exercising as much as she...
