If you’re on your own journey to body acceptance this podcast episode will help you immensely. Click the player above to listen and read on for a breakdown of what I’ll be discussing in episode 3 of Holistic Health Radio:
What is body positivity? I define body positivity, discuss where it came from and how it’s wrapped up in the self-love movement
My personal experience with attempting to ‘love myself’ by doing the mirror challenge
Why self-love may or may not work for you
How thin privilege plays in to the self-love movement and how to be mindful of this on social media
What is body neutrality and why it is a better option for making peace with food, exercise and your body
Plus my top tips for managing bad body image days (because they’re completely normal and we all have them!)
In this episode I also tackle a listener question on why some foods (aka diet foods or protein baked goods) make you feel full, but not content, and leave you craving something. You can read the full question below and listen to my answer on the podcast!
“Hi Sarah, I’ve been following you on Instagram and love the message that you’re spreading. I’ve had a very strained relationship with exercise and with what I eat, but I’m slowly letting these things go. One thing I still struggle with is letting myself enjoy baked goods and sweet foods such as ice cream, biscuits and cakes. When I do allow myself to eat them I generally make a protein powder based treat from a fitness Instagram account.
Everyone raves about how much they love the taste and I do feel physically full after eating it, however I still find myself searching for something more to satisfy my sweet tooth. Why is this happening? I’m worried that if I allow myself to eat the real version of these foods that I’ll just want to keep eating more once I finish? Thanks in advance for your help!”
