Jul 17, 2019

How did we get to this point in history when the majority of school age children want to change their bodies and we've all become obsessed with the scale, our weights, and what we look like?

It seems as though our obsession with losing weight and "being healthy" has actually done the complete opposite though. In this episode, Dr. Reinold dives deep into:

  • The History of the Scale
  • How BMI became SUCH a big deal... and why it really isn't
  • The REAL scoop on body size as it relates to health
  • Set Point Weight- the factors that increase it... and the reality that it IS technically possible to lower your set point weight also!

This episode is full of lots of statistics and figures pulled from a presentation. If you'd like access to these slides and sources, click here.

Jul 03, 2019

It's hard to feel good about your body in the middle of swimsuit and shorts season. The more we reveal our bodies, the more we vulnerable we can feel. And then all the negative thoughts come in... and then the diet thoughts come in... and before we know it, we're pages deep reading the latest diet book or health blog with hopes and dreams of changing our body ONE. LAST. TIME.

But what if you could feel good in your body RIGHT NOW?

082 ⎮Ditching the Scale, Overcoming Body Dysmorphia, and Learning to Trust Yourself Around Food with Sophie Bertrand

Jun 05, 2019

Can you develop an eating disorder and body dysmorphia even when you're in an already "thin ideal" body? YES! 

No matter your body size or shape, we are all vulnerable to the impact of culture on how we view ourselves. Eating disorders are mental illnesses, and we cannot determine someone's emotional suffering based on what someone looks like. 

In today's episode, I talk with dietitian, food blogger, and eating disorders professional, Sophie Bertrand.

We discuss:

  • Why Sophie became an eating disorders dietitian
  • How Sophie's relationship with food progressed through her career training
  • How her definition of health now includes chocolate and cake
  • Effect of perfectionism on development of ED's
  • How body obsessions can drive food obsessions
  • How body size does not determine mental suffering
  • How Sophie stopped weighing herself
  • How healing her own body image helped her have more compassion for others
  • and so much more!

Sophie gives some really great actionable tips for helping...

May 22, 2019


How does someone get on a weight loss television show? What's it really like behind the scenes? How do doctors and the medical community affect our relationship with food and body? 

As anyone who has ever struggled with food and eating issues can attest, our issues usually begin young and begin with unique motivations, usually involving some form of acceptance or health.

We discuss:

  • How Jacqui first began her obsession with food and body (Spoiler alert: It has to do with her doctor!)

  • Effect of dieting on relationships
  • How she got onto a weight loss television show and her experience on the show and with media

080 ⎮ Trauma, Sexuality and Love with Lindsay Gibson

May 15, 2019

>>DISCLAIMER: My guest, Lindsay Gibson, shares her violent sexual assault story on the podcast today. If you do NOT want to hear her story or it will be triggering to you, please fast forward first 15 minutes.<<

 For many of us who struggle with food and our bodies, trauma- whether big or small- is likely a part of our story. Even if you think that your childhood wasn't "that bad" or nothing "really traumatic" happened to you, you may be surprised to know how much we internalize from traumatic moments. In fact, trauma is not defined by the severity of the event, but by the severity of the impact on the individual.

In today's episode, I talk with my dear friend, Lindsay Gibson- author, speaker, trauma and maternal mental health advocate, and devoted mother. 

We discuss:

  • Lindsay's violent sexual assault at 16 years old and her journey through PTSD and recovery
  • What we need to know about trauma and PTSD
  • How MOST of us likely have experienced some form of trauma
