123. The Importance of Self-Compassion with Emilia Thompson PhD

Today on the podcast I’m joined by Registered Nutritionist Lecturer and Educator in Sports Nutrition and qualified Life Coach, Emilia Thompson.

Emilia intertwines evidence-based nutritional programming with the equally as evidence-based methods of mindfulness, self-compassion, gratitude and behaviour change to support clients’ attainment of their goals.

In today’s podcast we discuss her own personal health and fitness journey including her time spent competing in bodybuilding, the messy middle ground between diet culture and anti-diet culture, what self-compassion is and why it’s so important to achieving not only your goals, but a healthy relationship with food and exercise.
