This week’s Better Than Healthy podcast episode covers the principle of intuitive eating – body respect. Truly connecting with and respecting our bodies isn’t taught in the current diet culture.
Often health culture says to respect our bodies by taking care of ourselves, which sounds a lot like what we discuss in intuitive eating. But there are some subtle differences to watch out for.
Health tips discuss body respect often by what you “should” be doing to respect your body. This can turn into shaming yourself for not “doing the right things.” Like feeling lazy and like you’re not taking care of yourself for skipping a workout.
In this episode, we discuss other signs of self body shaming and tips for building body respect.
