Happy Satiated Saturday! 

Being stuck in patterns of binging, emotional eating, and yo yo dieting can feel all consuming. You're either trying to heal from the food patterns, immersed in the food patterns, or recovering from a recent episode of the food patterns. 

I know when my binge eating was at its worst, I felt like I had tunnel vision. All I could focus on was trying to stop the binge eating. There was little space for curi...

Happy Satiated Saturday! 

There is ongoing confusion around body acceptance, how to live in a body and be at peace with it, and pressure that you need to figure out body appreciation all on your own.

I personally don't believe in the saying, "you need to love yourself before anyone else can love you."

I did NOT love my body when I met my husband over a decade ago. I was very open about that with him from the beginning. I w...

In my early 20's, I used to get panic attacks. It's part of what led me to explore meditation to be able to befriend my body and make more space to sit with what is. 


One of the very first suggestions I received to navigate panic attacks was to describe my environment. It was my first experience of a somatic concept called pendulation, where you acknowledge what is happening in your body and then cre...

I remember the first thing my parent's taught me how to cook in the kitchen. It was an omelet. 


It was an amazing experience to take all these ingredients to form something delicious and that I was able to make for myself. 


Over the years, I've felt incredible gratitude that there was a love of cooking and making recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation in my family. 


What memor...

Here we are. Several hours left of 2022. 

You may have started to feel the marketing from Wellness and Diet Culture already start to pick up steam and tomorrow is the day they've been waiting for. 

There will be an increase in ads for diets, weight loss, detoxes, and cleanses. These ads will tap into your deepest fears about your body and this is why January needs to become a month where you're showin...

Happy Satiated Saturday! 

I have not engaged in a binge eating experience for over a decade now. But, prior to that, binge eating would come and go in my life. I would go through periods of binging and then utilize dieting as a way to put a stop to all of it. Of course, the binge eating would come back at some point because I had not addressed what was fueling my binging. 

When I finally started to heal the dysregulation in my body, ...

Happy Satiated Saturday! 

Have you felt that intense urge that going back on a diet would just solve everything? It may have felt that your needs, physically and emotionally, became too big and dieting would keep everything in check. 

So you go on a diet, and for a while, you feel in control. All your needs can get shoved aside to only focus on the need to feel successful at this diet. 

And the moment that you crave something off the ...

The holidays can be one of the hardest times of year when it comes to food behaviors. Stuck in the restrict-binge cycle, so normalized around this time, it can be difficult to be in your body and fully present with those around you.

Body image concerns, family, difficult conversations can make this a dysregulating time. And when you're trying to step off of the diet culture wheel, it can feel confusing w...

When I was stuck in the restrict-binge cycle, Thanksgiving would be one of the times of the year I would allow myself to eat whatever I wanted in whatever quantity with no judgment afterward. The interesting thing I noticed was that I never ended up eating as much as I thought I would just by giving myself permission ahead of time to eat. 

The relaxation I felt knowing I was going into a situation allowing m...

Happy Satiated Saturday! 

Being around certain people and foods during the holidays can bring up all sorts of reactions. These family members and friends and food can be perceived as threatening to your well being and safety and so your body moves into a fight or flight response. 

In this state, you might find yourself trying to gain control by restricting your intake and then binging later for your body to get what it needs nutritio...

I have said this before and I'll say it again. Your food behaviors are happening for a reason. Binging, restricting, chronic dieting, and body image concerns all come up to support you and satisfy a need that is not being met. 

They are there to help you feel safe and in control. 

And so, healing disordered eating or an eating disorder will mean addressing the root cause that is fueling your food and body...

Two decades ago, I was navigating being on and off diets, binge eating, emotionally eating, overexercising, and doing anything I could to run away from my body. My body was the place that was holding on to trauma and food was the answer to feeling regulated and safe. 

On my journey to healing my relationship with food and body, I explored yoga, multiple different therapeutic modalities, and experimented with...

When it got to a point where I felt like something needed to change with my patterns of binge eating, one of the steps I took was when I felt the urge to binge I would put on music and move my body. 

At the time, I was living by myself in a small 1 bedroom apartment. I would put the music up as loud as I needed and move in ways that I probably would not do in front of other people. I would get down on the fl...

Have you ever felt like there was an internal war playing out about your body and its appearance? 

You have the thoughts that play out that judge and criticize your body. And then every now and then, you have another set of thoughts when you look in the mirror appreciating and liking your body.

This can create the uncomfortable experience of cognitive dissonance where it feels like one of these body thoughts ...

Yoga was my first entry into the world of the mind body connection. Since my early 20's, I have been curious about the body and what other modalities are out there that help tap us into the wisdom of our body and learn how to communicate with it. 

One of the interesting modalities that is out there is called EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique. It's also referred to as tapping as you tap certain parts...

I have noticed a war between the body acceptance/body positivity movements and the lose weight/change your body movements. 

I have even had those I work with me ask me, "If I want to change my body does that mean I don't love my body?" 

It can feel really confusing and you're just trying to do the best you can to take care of you and your body.

The truth is, that only you will know what is best...

Over the summer, I was interviewed by Raakhee Natha, who has her MS in journalism, over a decade of experience in behavior change, has certificates in Brain-based Coaching (ICF Accredited), NeuroLeadership, Mind Body Eating Coaching, and is writing a book. 

She wanted to hear my thoughts on Body Wisdom, Somatic Nutrition and my creation of Somatic Eating™. 

I loved this interview so much I wanted to share it.

I spent years in patterns of binge eating and emotional eating. The healing path was messy and confusing. I figured out a lot on my own. 

Part of what drove me to create the Satiated Podcast was that I never wanted anyone to feel like they needed to navigate this journey alone. I wanted to create a space for others on a similar adventure to receive baby steps in creating the kind of relationship they wanted ...

As the movements of Health at Every Size and Body Positivity have grown, I have seen more and more confusion around how to have relationship with food. 

I've found myself in so many conversations that if a person wants to challenge their body, change their body, change their weight, does that mean they're no longer a person who is appreciating their body?

It can be incredibly confusing!

We all have many parts of us. You have an inner child, an inner teenager, an inner perfectionist, an inner people pleaser, an inner worrier, and many more. 

Your parts were created at a time when you needed them. They were trying to support you, protect you, and make sure you would be alright. 

As you grow older, these parts show up when their beliefs about what will support them in feeling safe is threatened...
