#2: Defining and Dismantling Diet Culture

April, 23rd 2024

Welcome back to "Make Peace with Food," I'm your host Emily LaVoie, a certified eating psychology coach committed to breaking down the oppressive norms of diet culture and fostering a space where food is a source of joy, not guilt. Today, in episode 2, we're diving deep into the murky waters of diet culture to understand its complexity and harm it causes to our mental and physical health.


Diet culture is like water to a fish; it's all around us, shaping our thoughts and behaviors in ways we might not even realize. It worships thinness, equating it unfairly with health, and promotes weight loss as the golden ticket to higher social status. But the reality is, not only are these notions unfounded, they are also damaging and exclusive, affecting women, femmes, trans individuals, people in larger bodies, people of color, and people with disabilities most of all.


We'll unpack the four pillars of diet culture as defined by Christy Harrison—worshipping thinness, equating thinness to health, promoting weight loss for improve status, demonizing and prioritizing certain foods and eating styles—and talk about the tangible consequences these ideas have. From the way we view our bodies to the foods we label as 'good' or 'bad,' we must call out diet culture in order to never be victimized again.


Join me as we explore the emotional rollercoaster and social pressures that stem from this obsession with body size and weight, the pitfalls of intentional weight loss, and most importantly, how we can start making peace with food.


Remember, you're not alone in this journey. After the episode, head over to my website for a free 30-minute Zoom consultation where we can talk more about your personal relationship with food.

March, 26th 2024

Welcome to Make Peace with Food, where we believe that food is not the enemy and that eating should bring joy, not stress and guilt. I'm your host, Emily LaVoie, and in our introduction episode, I share pieces of my journey from growing up in the era of supermodels and fat-free diets to becoming an eating psychology coach.

#6: Body Image: How Thoughts Shape Our Perceptions and Daily Lives

June, 18th 2024

In Episode 6 of Make Peace with Food, host Emily LaVoie delves deep into the complex and often misunderstood topic of body image. Emily, a certified eating psychology coach, begins by sharing personal anecdotes about rediscovering joyful movement through biking and roller skating, illustrating the importance of fun and play in physical activities. She then transitions into an educational segment, explaining the nuances of body image, the harmful impacts of diet culture, and the various mental health challenges associated with poor body image. Emily reads a definition from her website's glossary to break down the concept of body image and discusses how thoughts about our appearance can significantly affect our mental well-being, regardless of our actual appearance.


Emily also highlights the gender differences in body image struggles, noting that while both men and women can experience negative body image, societal expectations and responses often vary. She introduces the severe mental health condition known as body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), emphasizing how pervasive and damaging it can be.

 
Listeners will come away with a better understanding of how to recognize negative body image and practical tips for fostering a healthier relationship with their bodies. Emily passionately advocates for early and ongoing education on body image for children and teens, suggesting that proactive approaches could prevent the development of eating disorders and other related mental health issues.


In the final segment, Emily gives a sneak peek into next week's episode, where she will explore the interconnected yet distinct concepts of self-esteem, self-worth, and confidence.

#3: How much thought space are you giving food, your body, & exercise?

May, 7th 2024

In this episode of Make Peace with Food, host Emily LaVoie invites listeners on a reflective journey to understand the mental space dedicated to thoughts about food, exercise, and body image. As an experienced eating psychology coach, Emily provides a safe haven for individuals struggling with their relationship with food and body image.


Emily deep dives into the significance of one's thought space, asking listeners to pause and analyze the percentage of their daily thoughts occupied by future meals, diet culture, and body ideals. She challenges the pervasive guilt and shame associated with eating choices and urges us to reconsider the societal pressures dictating our self-perception.


Listeners will receive real-life examples from Emily's coaching practice, as she discusses the tools, such as journaling prompts, she employs to guide her clients toward setting more realistic goals for their relationship with food and appearance. Discover why striving towards an 'ideal body image' might hinder rather than help, and why a neutral approach to appearance can lead to a healthier mind and body.


Emily gets personal, sharing a revealing moment post-engagement, where her focus unintentionally shifted to food—a common occurrence in the complex web of food relationships.


Drawing upon the concept that movement and exercise are morally neutral, Emily encourages embracing a new perspective on physical activity that isn't tethered to self-worth. Additionally, she offers complimentary Zoom consultations for deeper engagement with the ideas discussed, providing a first step for those ready to venture into a more positive thought space.
