It's not uncommon for us to be obsessed with moving our bodies while on the diet culture treadmill until we start to feel like we hate exercise. It makes sense that if you're trying to 'be healthy' by living a diet lifestyle while also working on improving your physical fitness, when you pivot and begin to eat intuitively, suddenly, you might not want to exercise at all. The truth is all that obsession with “getting fit” might have left you with a nasty taste in your mouth about moving your body, and now you hate exercise (or do you?). Movement can be super beneficial for both your physical and mental health, offering benefits such as increased energy, a boosted mood, better sleep, AND an improved sex life (I’m here for ALL of it!) Translation: Moving your body is GOOD. And guess what? You probably don't hate exercising—you just think you do. Listen—it's okay to have days when the movement isn't as enjoyable or doesn't feel good. Just like with our eating, we're not always going to get it right. But sometimes, it's just our motivation or our mindset that needs a little tweak. Today on "The No Food Rules" podcast, I'm sharing why you might think you hate exercise and 4 reasons why you actually don’t. Let me be direct—exercise isn’t just about reshaping our bodies. I’ll share some even more motivating benefits that can be gained from getting moving. Tune in to learn why restricting your body's energy is a double-edged sword, creative ways to get in some movement while raising the FUN factor, and why movement doesn't have to be done for a certain amount of time (or at a gym) for it to count as exercise. In this episode, I'm also sharing my easy recipe for a change of pace—easy, fun breakfast sandwiches that are a cinch to make and can be eaten for ANY meal or snack. Plus, I'm examining how different personality types recharge their batteries—being at home or getting out and getting social. I'll share which one moves my needle, and I'd love to hear about what works for you. Reach out via the DMs and share how you recharge, what motivates you to move, and your comments on this episode.

Social media often presents intuitive eating as simply giving yourself permission to indulge in foods like cookies and donuts, which can be misleading. While it's true that intuitive eating involves giving yourself permission to enjoy all foods without guilt or shame, it's not just about mindlessly consuming junk food. However, as we navigate this journey, we may find ourselves swinging too far in the opposite direction and indulging in these foods excessively while never touching a salad. That said, not dieting is definitely a step in the right direction, and it's something to celebrate. Go you! But it's not necessarily true intuitive eating. Intuitive eating is a more dynamic process that goes beyond just eating as much as you want and includes listening to your thoughts, emotions, and especially your body's signals. A lot of people don't realize this. So, they get stuck in just not dieting instead of ever fully embarking on an intuitive eating journey. Today, I'm going to get a little ranty as there are some things on my mind that I would like to put out into the universe as I know how frustrating it can be to be stuck in the ping-pong back-and-forth cycle of restrictive dieting and binge eating that many people experience. In this podcast episode, I hope to clear up some of the misinformation about intuitive eating floating around on social media and provide some encouragement and truth from a registered dietitian who has personally experienced it. Listen in to learn why when transitioning to intuitive eating, it's crucial to consider nutrition to undo the damage of dieting, regain hunger and fullness cues, and establish a healthy relationship with food to promote better physical health. Then, take this quick quiz to help you find out if you are eating intuitively or just not dieting, and check out my one-week plan to help you get those hunger and fullness cues back BEFORE adopting a “No Food Rules” lifestyle. In this episode, I'm also exploring the difference between a true lack of time and a lack of flexibility that may be preventing you from pursuing self-care and interests outside of work. I'll discuss ways to cut through the noise and make time for the things that enrich your life, so you can find more joy in the moment while recharging to avoid burnout. I'd love to hear from YOU, the listeners. Reach out via the DMs with your comments on this episode.

Weight Watchers, meal replacement shakes, the 100 Calorie Packs, and those celebrity fitness gurus leading us through DVD workout after workout. Ah, the 2000s. Good times! Good times! We'd fuel up on 200 calories or fewer and then expect to go out and live our lives to the fullest while walking around with the amount of food in our bodies that we'd expect a toddler to eat. We've all been there, and most of us tried it ALL… and a lot of us have the unhealthy obsessions (and the dusty stack of workout DVDs with toned body instructors shouting, "burn that butter"—if you know, you know!) to prove it, only to feel defeated when we couldn't stick to it. Guess what? We were all set up for failure! The diet industry of the 2000s was gaslighting us and feeding us false promises. But you're not alone! Today, Nicole and I are breaking down the disordered diet trends of the aughts that left us feeling miserable, hungry, and unhappy. We're sharing our own personal experiences and providing a safe space for you, our listeners, while offering hope because no matter how long you've carried it around, it is possible to undo the damage from past diet trends and become an intuitive eater. Join us for a casual chat with two dietitians about the colors we wear, the power of pausing to understand our cravings, and alternative ways to fulfill them (without relying on food). Plus, we'll share a controversial method of intuitive eating that's been making waves in the SociEATy. Let's dive into a casual conversation and leave the 2000s diet trauma behind! Did we miss any of the 2000s diet traumas? We'd love to hear from YOU, the listeners. Reach out via the DMs with your comments.
