Diet Culture, Intuitive Eating and Embracing Your Body with Shanna Hutcheson, RD

Sharing is caring!

SHOW NOTES: Episode 19

Do you know what intuitive eating is? Shanna Hutcheson, an intuitive eating Registered Dietitian is here with us today to talk all about adopting a non-diet intuitive eating approach for long term health and happiness. Shanna is passionate about helping women and moms improve their health and overall well being through delicious food, joyful movement and self care. 

On today’s episode, Shanna shares her story of how she became interested in nutrition at a young age, how she came to the realization that she had an unhealthy relationship with food and exercise, and how she shifted from being a Registered Dietitian to an intuitive eating Registered Dietitian.

We chat about what intuitive eating is, learning how to get out of the diet mentality, and the transition to honoring your body and caring for it through food, nutrition, and joyful movement and how intuitive eating teaches you self compassion. We also talk about how the goal of intuitive eating is freedom for your body, learning to trust your body, and being patient with yourself and understanding exercise is a form of nourishment for your body not a form of punishment.

Shifting out of diet culture into intuitive eating can feel like a really scary transition. Just remember, it’s a long journey and you are on your body’s team forever and ever. Partner up with your body and think about how you can love yourself and show up for yourself everyday because it is an incredible feeling to have that freedom in your life.

I’m so thankful for Shanna coming on the podcast today. I hope this episode helps you truly make peace with your body and you learn to love your body well. Thank you for listening! I would love to connect with you on Instagram (@loveyourbodywell) and hear what you thought about today’s episode!
