This week I want to share a new perspective on food.
Can you imagine having a neutral relationship with food? One where food is not bad or good, and what you eat doesn’t define how you feel about yourself? My guest on the podcast this week is Ali Shapiro. Ali is the creator of Truce With Food, a unique approach to helping individuals separate from diet culture, body positivity, and food fixation.
Ali specializes in the intersection of food, psychology, and change, rooted in research in Adult Development Psychology and Behavioral Change. Many of her methods will sound familiar if you have been on your own change path with alcohol.
Here are some of the powerful points that Ali and I discuss:
- How food issues hold us back from real life
- Food as medicine
- The backlash against ‘wellness’
- Toxic diet culture (thin at all costs)
- Her philosophy of “loving my body is doing loving things”
- Food is the solution, not the problem.
- Option “C”
This conversation is so important, especially in this day and age where women continue to get pulled between body image and body positivity. Ali is a master at mindset and learning to love ourselves first.
Her flagship program, Truce With Food, is now open. You can connect with Ali and find out more HERE
