Food Psych Podcast
Food Psych is a podcast dedicated to helping you make peace with food.
Each episode, I talk with inspiring guests—including leaders in the body-positive and Health at Every Size movements—about intuitive eating, body image, eating disorder recovery, weight stigma, nutrition, fitness and more, all from a body-positive perspective.
Launched in 2013, Food Psych just started its fourth season. Explore the most recent episodes below, and be sure to subscribe on your favorite podcasting app so you never miss an episode!
