Body Kindness®: Transform Your Health and Never Say 'Diet' Again

By: Rebecca Scritchfield RDN Certified Exercise Physiologist
  • Summary

  • This is a show about health, not weight loss. It’s time to redefine what it means to pursue health, where your well-being matters more than your weight. When you practice Body Kindness®, you create a more satisfying life by being good to yourself. Learn how self-compassion and acceptance help you cultivate a “caregiver” voice and quiet the “inner critic”. HAES Dietitian and Certified Exercise Physiologist Rebecca Scritchfield and her guests have interesting conversations about the cultural influences that keep you stuck in “diet prison” and how you can break free to create meaningful changes in your life. Instead of dieting, you’ll practice self-care, including better sleep, flexible eating patterns, having more fun, and moving in way that feels good, not punishing. Regular guest Bernie Salazar, a former Biggest Loser “winner” shares why he’s happier and healthier as a fat man.

    My guests Abbe Greenberg and Maggie a.k.a. “The Anxiety Sisters” have built a lasting friendship and a thriving online community over their lifelong struggles with anxiety. In this episode, you’ll learn about why there is no one-size-fits-all approach to managing anxiety and how their new book THE ANXIETY SISTERS’ SURVIVAL GUIDE can help you cope with anxiety and find ways to laugh along the way. That may sound strange, but seriously, this book has humor and actually makes anxiety seem fun, or at least less overwhelming and lonely.

    Hey, listeners! Bernie and I continue our conversations on 'connection' and 'numbness' as we re-connect to each other after a year or so apart (thanks global pandemic).

    This is episode 2 of 3 in our series where Bernie goes deeper in describing his feelings of numbness and explores more about where they are coming from, why they're there and what he can do now.

    I chime in with my usual... 'it's OK to be here, wow look at your strengths, B... and let's make sense of this...' rah rah support.

    With heart and humor, we tackle what it feels like when you're spiraling down and disconnected.

    CW: Bernie re-discloses a childhood trauma, he doesn't go into any detail about it, the focus is not on his trauma. It's a naming and an acknowledgement.

    We're baaaaaack! Bernie and Rebecca managed to chat one more time before the end of 2021 and it was bittersweet. Tune in and find out what a sh*tstorm it has been for us. Bernie shares how his coping mechanisms of shutting down and feeling "numb" have returned and Rebecca helps support a gentle kindness toward re-approaching self-care practices. This is the first in a three episode series. Join us as we go deeper into exploring this feeling of "burnout" and "rock bottom" emotions. How do you "spiral up" when the sh*t is going down? If you want to send Bernie words of encouragement, his email is bernie@bodykindnessbook.com.
