How many times have you thought: why do I self-sabotage with food? If those answers haven’t gotten you very far, I have a much better question for you.

“How does my eating protect me?” is a question that will take you far and deep. To guide us with this question and path to your answers, I have the wise Sil Reynolds to talk food, protection strategies, and the root vulnerability in our stories that our food habits are trying, perha...

The Wellness culture we see as we scroll through Instagram or listen to in our earbuds on various wellness podcasts often casts itself as the opposite of Western Medicine. And yet, both industries overlap via the same value system of Puritans and Protestantism. 

From “clean eating” to failed functional medicine protocols because “client’s aren’t disciplined enough”, Protestantism and Puritanism are alive and well in both industries...

“How can I stop stress eating? is a frequent question I get asked. In today’s episode, I share a more powerful question that’s necessary to ask - “What’s eating you?” - to get back in control of food. No white knuckling required.

I share my own current story work related to my burn-out that caused my body to fall apart (and keep 30 pounds of post-pregnancy weight on), answer some listener questions, and offer some client examples f...

Have you ever thought about your birth? If you’re like most people, you probably haven’t. And yet, as Stacey shares, according to Ayverveda’s Sankyha philosophy, 25% of who we are comes from our conception and birth. This makes safety and food intimately connected and tangled from before we even make our Earth-side entrance. 

In order to understand food’s connection to safety, we are starting at the beginning. Specifically, our be...

The past few years have tested each of us.  We’ve been immersed in Grief. Loss. Relationship fissures. Children’s developmental concerns. Money stress. And these individual challenges are nesting dolls of the escalating war on women’s bodies, caretaking, and the Earth. 

With this, it’s not surprising that stress and stress eating are at an all-time high.

In the American Psychological Association's pandemic anniversary surveys, ...

In this special Insatiable podcast episode, I celebrate a major milestone: 30 years as a cancer survivor. 

I’ll share how what resolved my acne, depression, IBS, infertility, and out of control eating was learning how to redefine health beyond losing weight and learning to trust in my body feeling satisfied, not sacrificing and suffering. 

And how this new orientation led to transformational health results I didn’t even know were p...

Confidence is foundational to satiation or as Andrea defines satiation, fulfillment. 

Too often, we think confidence comes from weight loss, in a bottle promising beauty or is something we are born with. The good news is confidence is a skill-set and involves as Andrea Owen says in her new book, Make Some Noise, unlearning how we’ve been socialized to think about confidence and what it means to be a “good” woman.

We live in a world that teaches us to battle our bodies. Fight your hunger. Battle your weight. The war on mental health. This omnipresent battle narrative makes it appear natural and the only choice is to battle our bodies.

Is there another way? Yes. In fact, there are lots of other ways. 

My client Kristin Leslie joins us to discuss how challenging her self-doubt story, which included normalizing distrusting her body and voice, l...

    Did being gluten-free used to feel easy and now it feels depriving? Or maybe you’re burned out and getting back in shape sounds great but feels too much.

Yet when you understand the connection between emotional satisfaction and food freedom, you can unlock powerful energy and motivation to eat well – ...

    An important part of trauma work is building our capacity to be with pleasure and satisfaction. In our interview, Kimberly shares her perspective on satiation, which is asking the question “Wha...

    Learning to cook was an important step in ending my food battle. And then post-Truce with Food, I found myself less interested in food, cooking included. 

    Cooking became “assembling”. We still ate most of our meals at home; it just became some version of frozen vegetable, rice and chicken, give or take some garlic powder. Meh but manageable.  

    Then we became new, sleep-deprived parents and COVID hit. Cooking was important but even ...

    When we think of feeling satisfied from food, we often think satisfaction comes from more and more food and/or sweet/salty foods. Yet with some basic body knowledge, we can decode what’s actually happening instead of thinking more willpower is the answer. And in the end, feel more satisfied from healthy food and in control of indulgences. After some time away from the mic, Ali gives a personal update and shares:

    The COVID behavioral health trajectory mirrors the out-of-control eating cycle. The toll of our COVID era is why many of us turned to food for the first time or eating issues returned for others. Or for others, it got worse, better, or stayed all-or-nothing.

    If we can understand our COVID eating has deeper root causes than “willpower” or “discipline”, we have a genuine shot at profound and radical individual and collective change (...

    We have so many beliefs about working out: mainly that we should do the same thing and always be “crushing it”. But this approach to working out doesn’t honor the ebb and flow of women’s bodies. This often leads to sugar cravings from exhaustion and wanting to reward ourselves for slogging to the gym when a nap would have gotten us better results! To help educate, inspire, and fill in some major missing holes with our female biolo...

      The Piketon Massacre

      The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
