Are you fed up with food? Disgusted by diets? Bitter about the whole body-beauty industry? This is *not* another weight-loss program. Host Ali Shapiro, Founder of Truce With Food, dedicated academic, and well-known integrated health expert, shares a more truthful approach to freedom from cravings, emotional eating, bingeing, bargaining, and other diet derailments. Join Ali for interviews, practical advice, and radically honest discussions about food, truth, psychology and change.
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 (...
Ali gives a pep talk about how to navigate the building post-quarantine weight loss pressure diet culture will be capitalizing on. She also offers accessible ideas and free resources of what to do instead of trying extreme detoxes or diets to feel comfortable in your body when it finally comes time to leave the house for more than a grocery store run.
Ali shares a personal health and podcast update on the new Insatiable 13 release date.
Ali shares details about the next Insatiable podcast season and a personal update on why there will be no Fall season and ways to connect and work with her until next season.
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...
Alcohol is one of the most consumed forms of sugar and quitting alcohol can lead to an increase of sugar cravings and consumption. In this episode, We are the Luckiest author Laura McKowen and I discuss:
PMS cravings. Sleep disruption caused by perimenopause. The pain and emotional toll of endometriosis. All of these issues can be exasperated by sugar and also the reason we turn to sugar. How can we get out of this downward spiral?
In today’s episode with Fix Your Period author Nicole Jardim, we will discuss:
Since childhood, sugar has been used to reward us. Whether it was for being good for Dad or Grandma, reading books for Pizza Hut Pizza’s Book It or treating ourselves for losing weight, the “I deserve this” eating pattern is reinforced constantly.
We will explore the root cause of this emotional eating pattern and how to overcome it.
In this episode, we will discuss:
Not eating the right foods for our unique bodies creates anxiety. This anxiety shows up as a felt sense of anxiety AND also “needing something more” to eat but not knowing what that is or a general feeling of being unsatisfied with what they just ate.
To help us go into depth and teach us about this sugar-anxiety feedback loop, I’ve invited a holistic psychiatrist and my friend Dr. Ellen Vora onto the show. In this episode, we will...
Loving sugar or salty carbs isn’t only about taste. The main root cause of craving processed foods is it’s often your body's way of trying to “keep the lights on” from physiological imbalances.
In today’s episode with Ali Miller, holistic RD, we will discuss:
Before we can end our dependence on processed foods (whose main ingredient is sugar), we need to understand root causes of how we ended up with a highly addictive food supply. How did the radical or unnormal become so normal? To turn our understanding upside down to right side up, we will discuss:
Insatiable is back with a special podcast to support you now. In this episode:

Ah, sugar…referred to as the sugar dragon, sugar siren, and sugar addiction. There are physical and emotional root causes and solutions of how to reduce sugar in your life.
In this episode, we will discuss:
How can you enjoy your favorite indulgences without the guilt so that one piece of dessert or pizza doesn’t turn into “well the day is ruined, let’s keep going.”. We’ll discuss how to do this, specifically with:
To end the restrict-binge cycle, we have to address the three root causes of bingeing: deregulated blood sugar, restriction and our story that makes us be all-or-nothing, with food just being one area we approach life like this.
There are many definitions of self-acceptance when it comes to accepting our bodies. I used to think self-acceptance meant resignation. And that didn’t feel like freedom. In today’s episode, we’ll redefine self-acceptance and discuss:
You want to want to make a healthy choice. And you don’t want to feel deprived. How do we sink below this seemingly conflicting choice of eating the cookie and feeling crappy or not eating the cookie, feeling deprived and setting ourselves up for overeating or a binge?
In today’s episode, we’ll discuss:
Many of us monitor ourselves with food. It becomes an obsession; we monitor if we look fat. We monitor if other people are fat or thin. More scrutinization often ends in exhaustion, leading to “I know I shouldn’t but F@$# it”. In other words, more monitoring is counterproductive.
But there is hope, and a way to break this cycle. In this episode, we will grapple with the questions of:
In my approach, weight-loss as a side-effect of balancing your body with the right foods for you (i.e. there isn’t one way of eating that works for everyone) and addressing the emotional reasons we fall off track by overtime, rewriting our story.
This approach unlocks options and freedoms previously unknown to you. In this Insatiable episode, I’ll share how your food and weight battle can serve as post-traumatic growth, the 6 “f...
