losing the weight of generational dieting with Summer R [Melissa's former client]
losing the weight of generational dieting with Summer R [Melissa's former client]
For years, Summer didn’t even consider her dieting to be a “problem”. How could it be? A self proclaimed “good girl’ - she was convinced clean eating and weight loss were good girl things to do. Her takeaway when diets failed her? SHE was the problem. Coming from a family of generational dieters, and eager to do whatever it took to get dieting “right", Summer eventually wound up in a scary, restrictive on-and-off dieting pattern.  Today, Summer speaks about her experiences with chronic dieting recovery, including insights from her 1:1 coaching work with Melissa inside the No More Guilt Coaching program. This episode will help you: make meaning of the sadly, all-too-common generational diet trauma experience of dieting with your Mother as a teen unpack how magazines like “Seventeen” and “Shape” normalized disordered body ideals and dieting practices explore why so many people say "it's not that bad" about their disordered eating (as Summer shares the scary dieting moment that ultimately brought her to Intuitive Eating) figure out the difference between true Intuitive Eating and just “tricking yourself” you are doing it (but actually you are still dieting) You will love Summer's simple tips on what she did to finally stop snapping back into diet culture in a never ending spiral, and learn what she loves most about her newfound food freedom, just 7 months after starting her work with Melissa inside the No More Guilt Coaching program.

it's never "too late" to become an Intuitive Eater with Patrice W. [Melissa's former client]
it's never "too late" to become an Intuitive Eater with Patrice W. [Melissa's former client]
How long have you been dieting? Has it been an ACTUAL lifetime? Extended exposure to dieting may come new worries: can you really change after all this time? Is it worth even trying at this point? Can you be healthy as you get older AND recover your relationship with food at the same time? Too many women tell themselves "it's not that bad" - further perpetuating the never ending diet cycle! In this episode Melissa interviews her former client Patrice so she can share her successes inside the No More Guilt 3 month program after dieting for 50+ years. As a retired woman in her 60s, Patrice talks about how she approached intuitive eating work (first -on her own, and later with Melissa as her coach) in a way that folks of all ages can benefit from! We discuss: Patrice’s history with the binge-restrict diet cycle and what kept her saying "just one more time" The moment when she realized Intuitive Eating was even “a thing” Different types of support and providers available to help heal disordered eating (and how Patrice decided working with a Registered Dietitian would be right for her) The big question Melissa asked Patrice to help her overcome body image fears in time for her son’s wedding, just as she imagined.

why can't our families be "normal" about food?
why can't our families be "normal" about food?
Do you ever just wish your family was “normal’ when it came to food and body image stuff?  Especially as you start to learn more about Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size, you can’t help but grieve what could have been if only YOUR mother had learned to break the diet cycle so that you didn't have to.  What would life be like if diet culture weren't such a big part of your family's story? I think about that all the time for my own family. And the truth is, we both may never know. What I do know is that grief around your experience with family diet trauma can feel more tender around the holidays as you may be spending more time back inside the family unit your diet trauma came from.  How do we allow differences within our family's healing journey work while also protecting our peace and calm as adult children of chronic dieters? Are  we doomed to stay stuck in our family diet trauma?  With Thanksgiving this week and the holidays around the corner, Melissa is taking you beyond “boundary setting tips” by helping you consider: What does it mean to have a “normal” family when it comes to food and body image? What generational diet response are you most likely to experience over the holidays? What boundaries can- and cannot - do for your Intuitive Eating practice How to cope with kindness while practicing boundary setting with family stuck in diet culture (who might not understand...) The pros and cons of different types of boundary setting techniques you see on social media If this episode made you realize it’s time to get more support in your Intuitive Eating work, dm me @no.more.guilt on Instagram for more information about my current programs.

how to get past fear of needing medication with Kristie Messerli, RD, CDCES
how to get past fear of needing medication with Kristie Messerli, RD, CDCES
Do you take any medications? If not, do you ever worry you’ll have to go on them some day because of your health habits? Many people worry no longer dieting will lead to health concerns that require medications. This idea is a MAJOR roadblock to progressing in your Intuitive Eating work. How do you stop letting this common fear hold you back from becoming an Intuitive Eater? In this episode Melissa talks to fellow Dietitian Kristie Messerli about why even the IDEA of going on medication comes with so much guilt, fear, and shame and how to get past it. As a Certified Diabetes Educator, Kristie shares how to use informed decision making when it comes to deciding (with your doctor!) how medication might fit into your health care plan. Though these examples center on Kristie’s experience with diabetes medication, this episode is a must-listen for anyone trying to understand more about Health at Every Size and how the philosophy considers medication as a tool for health. We discuss: Common fears people experience before going on medications What different diabetes medications do in the body - including pros and cons Can you go from pre-diabetes to normal range without medication? What kinds of things should you be considering before you go on medication? What is informed decision making? How can you practice it in your everyday life? Of course - Kristie and I are Dietitians, but we’re not YOUR Dietitian so please consult with your doctor before making any changes to your lifestyle behaviors or medication usage. Our opinions are our own and do not serve as a substitute for medical advice. Are you new to the pod? Been here a while? Your 5 star review and feedback means the world!

is it okay if eating sweets makes you happy?
Favorite halloween candy on three! 1, 2, 3. JUNIOR MINTS! Whatever your go to halloween sweet - we need to talk. It's okay if you love sweets - including halloween candy. And, it's okay if you love food in general. Too often new Intuitive Eaters try to banish their love of food by turning Intuitive Eating into a restrictive diet. When it comes to sweets, if you focus too much on *whether or not you should keep sweets in the house* and *stopping when full* you miss the bigger picture: allowing SATISFACTION to guide your eating effortlessly, so you finally feel free! What if you could relax, and confidently keep sweets in the house with no more guilt? This week, you can use available halloween candy as an opportunity to learn how to create this exact kind of relationship with sweets. Instead of spiraling out this week over candy, Melissa will use this solo episode to show you how to find some peace as you: Let go of food morality, guilt, and shame that hurts your intuitive eating process Consider the satisfaction you get from your food (and life!) - this week, and generally Feel more comfortable with an “All foods fit” mindset as part of your gentle nutrition approach Self-assess where candy binges are coming from if you’ve already stopped dieting and no longer really call foods “good” and “bad” in your mind Melissa also gives you some reflection questions to reframe your relationship with food by surfacing thoughts and feelings that might be getting in the way.  Dm Melissa @no.more.guilt anytime you’d like to say hello and share a favorite takeaway from the episode.

how does diet culture impact you during the college years? with Dr. Hortencia Jimenéz
What was your relationship to food and body image like in college? Many clients report their disordered eating behaviors began or worsened during the college years. And many did not receive care or support during this time which is why, in part, they still struggle with food and body image today. What is the impact of diet culture on college students? In what ways does the college environment impact students from marginalized communities differently? Especially for those in bigger bodies who were routinely prescribed and praised for their (often harmful) weight loss efforts during the college years: what are ways you can heal from disordered eating, even years after you've graduated? In today’s episode, Melissa interviews Dr. Hortencia Jimenéz, professor, sociologist, and health coach to discuss her perspectives on: What it means to consider eating disorders and anti-diet work from an anti-oppressive lens How generational diet trauma gets tangled up with college educational systems and environments  How to make meaning of your own disordered eating behaviors during your college years so you can experience healing today 3 ways community care can impact and support individuals at risk for eating disorders and disordered eating in the college setting Episode Resources: Follow Dr. Hortencia Jimenéz on Instagram @drhortencajimenez Support Hortencia’s work on Venmo with a donation: https://account.venmo.com/u/Hortencia-Jimenez-4 Read about White Supremacy Culture: https://www.dismantlingracism.org/uploads/4/3/5/7/43579015/okun_-_white_sup_culture.pdf Hortencia mentions the book “Decolonizing Wellness” by Dalia Kinsey - available on Amazon Join the Break the Diet Cycle Podcast Community: @break.the.diet.pod Connect with Melissa on Instagram: @no.more.guilt This episode was sponsored by No More Guilt with Melissa Landry Get the 3 Steps to Eat without Guilt Guide: https://mailchi.mp/d9207e0baf90/nomoreguiltguide Want coaching support for a life of No More Guilt?

is it okay to track as an Intuitive Eater with Jessi Haggerty RD
So you deleted your MFP (myfitnesspal) or other food tracking apps but still sometimes find your thumb hovering over the “download” button on your negative body image days? You're not the only one and it’s time we talk. Even when you want to stop tracking, you mind may gravitate toward it without your permission! In this episode, Melissa and fellow Anti-Diet Dietitian Jessi Haggerty RD talk it all out to help you use tracking and journaling in ways that are consistent with Intuitive Eating work. We answer: - Is there room for tracking on an Intuitive Eating journey?  - What’s the difference between “tracking” and “journaling”?  - What are the pros and cons of these methods when you are trying  to find food freedom?  - Is it “bad” to want to track? - What are examples of things you could journal as an Intuitive Eater? Jessi is the author of The Daily Check-In Journal (available on Amazon) and gives her perspective on how to meaningfully grow the “intuitive” side of “intuitive eating” with realistic journaling practices. We also talk about how to approach non-diet journaling of your emotions, thoughts, periods, and poops (!!) - all of which can relate to your gentle nutrition and food freedom work.

Sam Abbott (@pcos.nutritionist) is back on the pod to share something near and dear to her heart: reality television.

We explore storylines from the Real Housewives franchise, Love is Blind, Love Island, Selling Sunset, and more. We hope you’ll learn how to use your body image skills to enjoy the “escapism” of these shows without activating disordered thinking, eating or body image struggles. We talk about how to challenge harmful body norms that impact both your individual anti-diet work and society as a whole. Sam is a fellow registered dietitian nutritionist who helps those with PCOS ditch diets, improve insulin resistance and balance hormones without feeling guilty or stressed about food. She is the owner of PCOS Nutrition Company, where nutrition coaching services are centered around improving hormone balance without a side of diet culture or weight stigma.

getting over Intuitive Eating fears with Aston M
getting over Intuitive Eating fears with Aston M
So many people love the idea of Intuitive Eating but struggle with putting it into practice because it feels WAY too scary to start on your own. In this episode, former No More Guilt client Aston Moody shares her main fears about Intuitive Eating before coming into the No More Guilt program over a year and a half ago, how she overcame her fears of weight gain, redefined “doing the right thing” around food, and what’s been happening since she graduated. She talks about her love of Enneagram and how she used it as a tool alongside Intuitive Eating skills to heal her lifelong struggle with dieting. We talk about the impacts of growing up in the 80s and 90s on food and body image. Aston talks about what life is like now that she is no longer measuring time in terms of whether or not she is on a diet, cheating on a diet, or gearing up for the next one. Aston will share some key insights for your Intuitive Eating work, especially for anyone who considers themselves a “black and white thinker” who is too often hard on themselves in this inspiring episode.

when "eating what you want" backfires
when "eating what you want" backfires
Do you ever worry “eating what you want” will 100% backfire on you? Like you can’t handle the responsibility of being without ANY kind of structure or plan? You’re not alone. Having grown up in a diet culture - it would make sense! Many generational dieters never had a role model for a healthy relationship with food and need more structure than the boilerplate Intuitive Eating advice to “eat what you want”. In this solo episode, Melissa covers what can go wrong when you don’t have enough structure in your Intuitive Eating journey, how to figure out how much structure you need, and how to recover from common pitfalls like: feeling even GUILTIER as an Intuitive Eater than you did on a diet, struggling with excessive fullness, feeling low-energy, or feeling like you’re only eating “junk” food all the time. Melissa covers how to plan ahead, without getting “diety” and how to stop falling trap to the latest tik-tok food trend that makes you feel bad about the way you eat. Loving the pod?

If you grew up in a family that valued thinness and diets… and then went on to diet yourself for YEARS - your brain is now set up to think of food as series of rules and steps to follow.  Then enters Intuitive Eating with all its messages to: “jUsT LisTeN to YouR BoDy” and “eAt WHaT yoU wAnT”. Especially if you are a black-and-white thinker who *LOVED* the structure of dieting, this new world of Intuitive Eating can feel terrifying.  If you’re sure that you’re done with diets, but still struggle to trust yourself to be “responsible” with the flexibility of Intuitive Eating – we're going to talk about how you can move forward. In this episode, Melissa's client Meg shares her experience as a WW "lifer", her reaction to finding Intuitive Eating for the first time, how she approached things on her own vs. with a coach, how she let go of need for rules by inviting "healthy structure" into her IE journey. This episode will help you think about the best ways for you to learn intuitive eating based on your own preferences for structure and support. WE LOVE A GOOD CLIENT STORY! I’d love to hear your takeaways after hearing Megan today! Just message me on Instagram @no.more.guilt - I always love connecting with you between episodes.

does eating more help you lose weight? [part two]
does eating more help you lose weight? [part two]
Last week we replaced the question “does eating more help you lose weight?” with an even better one: "what regulates our weight in the first place?" And is it even food? As it relates to nutrition, there are two accepted theories about why some people are in bigger bodies compared to others. We talk about which theory makes sense with our available research, and which one doesn’t - as we continue chatting our way through a review paper from a prominent researcher in the weight loss world. Melissa breaks down the limitations - and findings - of the current available population studies, as well as diet intervention trials as they relate to weight and diet. She talks about why Intuitive Eating professionals come to different conclusions about what current research data means compared to weight loss researchers. Melissa talks about ways you can be open, but critical, to new research findings from the weight loss world so you don’t fall trap to more diet culture thinking. Melissa also helps you consider what to do instead of dieting, if you agree it’s not effective for your health. She offers 4 health behaviors that benefit everyone, regardless of body size, and shows you how to work on your nutrition as a lifelong, n-of-1 self-study using your body cues as data to decide which nutrition, movement, and self-care choices best line up with your personal health values. If you loved this 2 part series - Melissa wants to know! Rate, review, or dm her on Instagram @no.more.guilt to tell her how you are using the episodes in your Intuitive Eating work. Episode Resources: In this episode Melissa discusses a review paper by Dr. Kevin Hall and colleagues, you can read it here: https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/115/5/1243/6522166 She also mentions a specific meta analysis of 121 dietary intervention trials that was selected as one of the works reviewed inDr. Hall’s review paper.

does eating more help you lose weight? [part one]
As the harms - and ineffectiveness - of dieting become more well known, Melissa has noticed an interesting phenomena. A lot of “weight loss experts” are starting to give you messages like “of course you’re not losing weight, you’re not eating enough!” - in stark contract to older messages like “learn to eat less”.  In this episode, Melissa explains why this messaging is just more diet culture keeping you stuck in the “calorie model” and how “eating more calories” isn't the magic bullet to weight loss they say it is. In this 2 part series, Melissa walks you through a recent research paper to give you background so you can feel more confident in your choice to become an Intuitive Eater (and maybe, get better at explaining to other people!). We talk about the two main theories of why some people may be at a higher weight than others, and why rat and genetic studies aren’t really telling us much to prove them.

What's Your Money Mindset? with Bola Sokunbi
In the work Dalina and Melissa do, we uncover a lot of *stuff* about mindset - and often hear the refrain "I realized my relationship to food is kind of like my relationship to money". Have you ever noticed this too? It’s like sometimes mindless, other times too restrictive, other times too "spendy” (aka a money binge)? That’s why we asked Bola Sokunbi – Certified Financial Education Instructor, money expert, best-selling author, and CEO/founder of Clever Girl Finance – to talk a bit more about money mindset with us on this episode! We answer how to measure financial health, how your parents' relationship to money impacts you today, common money mindset roadblocks (and ways to overcome it!) and more about financial health, so you can explore this important part of your overall health.

The Truth about Diabetes and Health
The Truth about Diabetes and Health
As anti-diet dietitians we encourage you to eat what you want. This may be VERY different from what you have heard in the past about food, so it’s expected that we get asked: “what about health?” or “what about diabetes - are we REALLY going to tell people with DIABETES to eat what they want?” - and the simple answer is YES! You are allowed to eat foods that taste good while you manage your diabetes. We talk about what the different forms of diabetes are, how you can treat and work with family history of diabetes through your Intuitive Eating work, and what it really means to “pair foods” for better blood sugars.

What is Orthorexia? with Lauren P [Melissa's Former Client]
What is Orthorexia? with Lauren P [Melissa's Former Client]
Do you think about food 24/7? Does it make you feel distracted and guilty? Many people minimize this experience by telling themselves “it’s not bad enough to get help” - which is why we want to share Lauren’s story as a former client of No More Guilt group coaching. Lauren talks about the ways in which her disordered dieting behaviors get normalized - and even praised through her life. We discuss what orthorexia is and how it doesn’t always link to body image concerns. Lauren reveals when she realized her relationship to food was a valid problem in her life, and how she overcame the idea that certain foods are “good” and others are “bad” in order to let go of dieting for good. Through Lauren’s story, you’ll get an honest take about how to overcome the challenging parts of Intuitive Eating  - plus hear what she’s doing now to deepen her recovery over time! This is a do not miss episode if you’ve ever wondered if your own relationship with food was worthy of help. DM us after this episode - we want to hear your take!

Is It Wrong For You To Be Eating Out So Much? with Shana from @the.nutrition.tea
Is It Wrong For You To Be Eating Out So Much? with Shana from @the.nutrition.tea
Do you remember hearing the words “hay comida en casa? Or “there’s food at home” whenever you asked your Mom to go to get pizza on the way home after school? The expectation to ALWAYS eat at home (or else risk being wasteful and unhealthy) sticks with us! Especially if like Dalina - your Mom did EVERYTHING by hand and taught you not to waste money. Or maybe your Mom would always say “this is so bad” if relying on take-out for dinner. If you had ANY of these experiences, it makes sense if you feel guilt for wanting to eat out today. In today’s episode we’ve enlisted fellow Registered Dietitian Shana Minei Spence, MS, RDN to talk about why eating out feels SO taboo, and, we’ll help you enjoy eating out as an Intuitive Eater going forward: listening to your body and without guilt.

Dalina and I are not in menopause - but WE ARE NOW CONVINCED - we need to talk about menopause WAY sooner! We realized through this recording: we know nothing about our mother’s experience - and her story can be a major “tell” of how your menopause will go. And if you are in menopause? “THE CHANGE” has you managing symptoms like hot flashes and body changes – so we know diets can feel especially compelling. You’ll do anything for relief!

How Can I Be More Sex Positive If I Struggle With Body Image?
How Can I Be More Sex Positive If I Struggle With Body Image?
Many clients tell us that intimacy issues come up because of their body image. If you’ve ever had the idea your body was not sexy or desirable because of your shape or size – you may wonder: how do you start to become more sex positive as part of your body image work? What do you do if you had a negative experience in the past where a partner made a negative comment about you or someone else’s body? This stuff is hard to talk about, so Melissa and Dalina brought in Cindy Luquin, a bilingual certified sex educator from @howlatthewomb so we could discuss: What is purity culture? How does it impact our body ideals? How do you reclaim pleasure for yourself vs. positioning the you look as solely serving your partner? What do you suggest to help our listeners feel more at peace with parts of their body they’ve long felt shame about: bigger bellies, body hair, stretch marks, saggy boobs? We felt nervous to talk about as the kids on TikTok call it (we explain why that is, too!), but in the end found ourselves empowered by this conversation! How did you feel considering sex positivity in your body image work? DM us on instagram with your reaction, or, leave an honest review wherever you listened!

How Do You Let Go of Wanting to Lose Weight?
How Do You Let Go of Wanting to Lose Weight?
For many people, the idea of no longer dieting is the easy part of Intuitive Eating. If you’ve dieted since you were 15 years old - you’re SO exhausted by now. It’s kind of a relief to hear “diets don't work” - because you’ve known it all along. But then what?! What often DOESN’T feel like relief for clients is the idea they are going to be stuck in a bigger body that feels uncomfortable. Today, Dalina and Melissa talk about how to work toward body neutrality, that is, respecting your body, so you don’t feel so much guilt and rebellion around food. First we’ll describe how to imagine body image on a spectrum, then we will cover some tips to go from there. You’ll learn: How to surface and calm your inner body police based on your lived experiences in a bigger body Why body neutrality matters to staying motivated (and being realistic!) with the body image process 3 exercises for body neutrality you can consider to find more neutrality in your bigger What did you think of our conversation today?

[repost] but how do I deal with family judging the way I eat?
This episode is WORTH repeating. Why? Trying to be the first in your family to break the diet cycle can be HARD. Do you often struggle with family members making comments about your body and food choices? It's like in one breath they want you to eat all the food on your plate, but then make comments on your weight. This is super tough, especially if you are new to intuitive eating and just trying to figure it all out for yourself. On this episode we discuss how to handle comments from your family and friends and how to be comfortable with setting boundaries.

This season, Melissa and Dalina are offering an Intuitive Eating series where they will walk you through the 10 principles of Intuitive Eating. Before this series starts, this episode will help you consider common mindset traps that have to do with the relationship between your family culture and American diet culture, like: How public health nutrition messaging may have negatively impacted your ideas about what you should eat How your family culture impacts your ideas about when and where to eat If your family is more “individualist” or “collectivist” [and what that means for you when you are trying to set boundaries as an Intuitive Eater among them!] Melissa and Dalina make the suggestion to actually write down your thoughts and feelings around the prompts in these episodes so that you can start labeling and addressing roadblocks within your family culture as you go through the Intuitive Eating process.

why do dietitians disagree about weight loss? with Maria Sylvester Terry MS, RDN
If you follow Registered Dietitians for advice and tips on Instagram you may notice two VERY different worlds. Some Dietitians promote dieting for weight loss, while others adopt an "anti-diet" or "non-diet" approach of weight inclusivity. If you find these mixed-messages confusing, you're not alone. Like many evidence-based fields leaning on new and emerging research, there are differing philosophies around weight loss, including if and how it should be approached! In today’s episode we called on fellow Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Maria Terry Sylvester MS, RDN, LDN to discuss: the difference between a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and a nutritionist what training ALL Registered Dietitian Nutritionists receive how to know if the Registered Dietitians Nutritionist is right for your needs how to navigate nutrition messages that confuse or trigger you Episode Resources: Follow Maria Sylvester Terry on Instagram: @vitamin_ri and check out her work @eatfitnola Join the Break the Diet Cycle Podcast Community on Instagram: @break.the.diet.pod Connect with Melissa on Instagram: @no.more.guilt  Connect with Dalina on Instagram: @your.latina.nutritionist Subscribe to Break the Diet Cycle on Apple Podcasts This episode was sponsored by No More Guilt with Melissa Landry.

Do men struggle with food and body image? with Aaron Flores RDN
Do men struggle with food and body image? with Aaron Flores RDN
We often hear clients ask "do you have any good accounts for men who struggle with food?" In today's episode Registered Dietitian Nutritionists Dalina Soto and Melissa Landry interview fellow Dietitian Aaron Flores, RDN for his perspective on "bro culture", the danger of assuming all men's experiences with body image are the same (they're not), and how diet culture hurts all genders. In today’s episode we discuss: do men worry about dieting and body image as much as women? what unique pressures are men facing from diet culture? how do we help boys and men experience positive body image? Is it different from other gender expressions? partner dynamics across all genders: what do you do if your partner doesn't get why your ditching diets? what if one person wants weight loss surgery and the other believes in intuitive eating? How can you be more sensitive to your partner's experience around food and body image, especially if you are in a smaller body than they are and don't face the same societal pressure to lose weight?
