Food Psych is a podcast about intuitive eating, body image, eating disorder recovery, and Health at Every Size.
I'm your host, Christy Harrison, a registered dietitian nutritionist and certified intuitive eating counselor who specializes in helping people make peace with food. Since I launched the podcast in 2013, I've talked with dozens of inspiring guests—comedians, actors, writers, psychologists, and many more—about their relationships to food, weird eating habits, and journeys toward body acceptance. I also discuss the science of eating disorders, share my own recovery story, and offer some nutrition tips along the way.
"This is my absolute favorite podcast out there. ...Every guest on Christy's show, as well as Christy herself, inspire me to love my body and love myself. Christy just recently answered one of my questions on her Ask Food Psych show, and I was so touched that she took the time to answer a question that had been bothering me for awhile. It shows that she truly cares about her listeners and that is something I will always truly appreciate. If you aren't listening, you should be!"
"Really fabulous podcast! Christy has a great voice (not just as in easy on the ears but as in, she is a knowledgeable and qualified and unique voice on this topic). The guests have been awesome and I really feel like this is the TRUTH we need to get back to regarding food and eating and diets."
"Makes me feel like I'm not alone with intrusive thoughts surrounding food and perfectionism while simultaneously giving me hope that if I keep moving forward, things will get better and I will fully overcome this :) ...This podcast allows me to feel included and connected to others who understand the struggle even though I'm just listening! Love it."
"This podcast has been SO helpful in my journey through recovery of an eating disorder. My hope is to one day truly be an intuitve eater. Listening to your show encourages, inspires, and educates me. Most of all, it gives me hope. Thank you so much for all that you do!"

It’s immensely healing and insightful and I love the way Christy interacts so authentically with her guests. This podcast is helpful beyond words - LOVE IT."
"You know when you hear something and it just hits you like a ton of bricks? That's what happened to me with this podcast. A light was turned on about my relationship with food, my body and my self-esteem. I was pulled out of denial."
"I discovered this podcast a short bit after beginning recovery from anorexia. It has helped me grow so much, and allowed me to explore topics I never would have thought of on my own. ...I look forward to every new episode, and I haven't come across one yet that I haven't adored."
