We’re back for another media literacy episode, where we dive deep into a recent piece of media as it related to body acceptance, eating disorder recovery, and health (from a HAES perspective. This week we are digging into an article entitled “10 Simple Ways To Stop Craving Carbs All The Time,” sources from Mind Body Green.
If you’ve been a long-time listener, you can already guess how many problems I have with an article like this, just based on the title alone. But if you’re not sure why the idea of trying to resist or ignore our carb cravings (or our cravings in general) is problematic then you’ll definitely want to make sure to tune in!
I know I talk a lot about carbs and why they’re so gosh darn important, so this may not be totally new info if you’ve been listening for a while. But it may serve as a much needed refresher, given that we’re headed into the holidays (traditionally a very body-politically-charged time of year) AND with all of the low-carb rhetoric floating around the internet these days.
I hope you enjoy!
This episode is a loooooong time coming, and I couldn’t be more stoked to share it with you all. Kelsey Miller is a writer, author, editor and speaker based in BK, New York. She’s the founder of the Anti-Diet Project, author of the book Big Girl, and the forthcoming I'll Be There For You (which is now available for pre-order!), and an all-around staple in the world of body acceptance, Intuitive Eating, and non-diet living.
We’re back with another solo episode! The first of the season, where I’m sharing some of my most crucial beliefs about self care through the recovery process.
I truly believe that one of the most crucial, foundational parts of sustainable recovery is self care. But not just the bubble bath, self-pampering kind of self care (that’s all great, but…) I’m talking self care that is about tuning in to your needs, being with yourself for long enough to know how you need to be supported, and tapping into your senses in order to come back to the present moment.
This may seem a little abstract right now, but I promise the episode goes in deep about all of this and more, and will leave you feeling ready to put some energy back into yourself, in the most gentle of ways.
