Ali Sempek – Modern Day Diet Culture, Food Relationships, and Shifting Away From Food Shame (Ep. 173)

I wish I had this young woman’s mindset and knowledge back years ago but I want every woman to hear this conversation because it is so important to joy and fulfillment in life. Your body is the least interesting thing about you and it’s possible to shift away from food shame and have food freedom while loving the body you’re in.
