In this episode we talk with health coach Isabel Foxen Duke about emotional eating, weight bias, the Health At Every Size movement, her own eating disorder recovery, and lots more!
Isabel Foxen Duke graduated from Tufts University with a BA in sociology (a discipline which has informed her coaching substantially), and received her certification in health coaching from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She spent several years of her young adult life studying various spiritual practices, including but not limited to Zen Meditation at Ryukoku University in Japan, and Transpersonal Psychology in Bali, Indonesia. She is also the editor of Mirror Mirror: Reflections on the Way We Look, an exploratory anthology of body-image-related prose.
Isabel is really into body positive photography and pleasure as a spiritual practice, and has very strong opinions about why most people are getting the “emotional eating” conversation backwards. Find her at IsabelFoxenDuke.com.
