Food Psych Podcast
Welcome to Food Psych, a podcast dedicated to helping you make peace with food and your body.
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, fat acceptance, nutrition, and more. This podcast challenges diet culture in all its forms, including the restrictive behaviors that often masquerade as wellness and fitness.
Launched in 2013, Food Psych is now one of iTunes' top 100 Health podcasts and the world's leading anti-diet podcast. Explore the most recent episodes below, and be sure to subscribe on iTunes (or your favorite podcasting app) so you never miss an episode!

"I came to Christy's podcast to hear Rachel Cole's interview- and I am now working my way through back episodes. It's real and refreshing and inspiring to hear stories of folks like myself. I am learning new information and feeling connected to the guests and Christy. There is a sense of connection and community that comes through. So glad I found you guys!"
"Thank goodness someone is talking the real talk about food and body image! This podcast is a great way to get an overview of Health at Every Size and Intuitive Eating. Folks who are curious about eating disorder recovery can find encouragement, science, support, and permission to eat."

"The best of the best. This podcast is perfection. You absolutely need this in your life. It WILL make a difference. A significant difference. After listening to only one episode I was so happy with it that I joined her online program. It's AMAZING! It's also extremely generously priced. I am now hooked on this podcast."
"Amazing resource. I love this podcast. I am doing my dietetic internship right now and don't have the money to pay for specific intuitive eating training yet, but this podcast provides me with a ton of helpful information and amazing insights into the realm of body positivity!"
"I had spiraled into an ugly unhealthful calorie counting/binge cycle after having to weigh in at a corporate wellness event, I am so thankful I found this podcast.

"The ONLY food & nutrition podcast I listen to. From one RDN to another, Christy Harrison is bringing a much-needed paradigm shift to the food & nutrition world! Thank you!"
"I love this podcast! My story is similar and I just can't explain how nice it is to hear someone else validating my struggle. This is such a thoughtful and well done show. I especially love the focus on intuitive eating, particularly, I appreciate the perspective on "food addiction" and "clean eating". It is nice to hear from a licensed a nutritionist who has gone through an eating disorder and is recovered. So many nutritionists are sick themselves and can be promoting diet culture."
"Healing and positive! I have struggled with emotional eating for years and am so glad I discovered this podcast! I feel like I am finally beginning to heal. I love to take long walks and listen, I have learned so much! Thank you!"

Christy has an amazing way of being relatable, charming, and compassionate as she shatters the beliefs about health and body image that many of us have been taught by mainstream culture. ...I hope all people hurting or recovering from body shame and fearful relationships with food can stumble upon this podcast. Christy's competence in the field of nutrition and her authentic and honest communication style make this podcast so engaging and inspiring. It is truly my favorite! Thank you so much, Christy!!"
"I have been listening to Christy's podcasts for a while and as a fellow RD, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this podcast. Not only do these episodes hit a nerve personally but they help me be a better dietitian. The intuitive eating and body positive movement is SO incredibly important for the health and happiness of all of those struggling with their relationship to food and their bodies. Dieting is NOT the answer. I cannot say that enough. Thank you Christy and keep the good work coming!!"
"As a person recovering from an eating disorder, this podcast is exactly what I need. In a world filled with physical appearance and an obsession with dieting it is easy to get absorbed and lost in it all.
