014: THS- Samantha's Journey to Nutritional Flexibility
Hey all! Sorry for the absence. Life GOT REAL BUSY. We're back now. This is one of two back logged episodes that we recorded a couple of months ago. I'm so excited to bring you the story of Samantha! I will let her tell you about herself! Samantha: "I am a therapist, and I have a story to share about how I've changed my own eating habits. I had a pretty typical American diet (heavy in processed foods/ convenience foods). I was sick, and I tried changing my diet as a way to heal some of my underlying health issues. I would go on really strict protocols, and I would see results. However, they were so hard to stick to that I would eventually bounce back to my old ways of eating.  Obviously, a lot of extremes and black and white thinking and behaving isn't super effective for long term change!  I changed my whole approach and found that simple, sustainable systems were the key to making a long-lasting healthy change. I also discovered that I didn't have to be so strict to get the benefits of a healthy diet." Check her out at and on Instagram @.samanthaosbornetherapy make sure you leave us a 5 star review on either Facebook or Apple podcasts!!

Well, it is finally here! I am so excited to bring you Episode 1 of the Human Series! In this series we here from real people who have real stories about nutritional behavior change. In today's episode I am joined by Jackie! I will let her explain a little about herself later on in the show notes. Jackie has a great story of how our learning history does not have to control who we are or what we do, but can inform the future decisions we make!! Jackie struggled with a life of yo-yo dieting from a young age and as a busy adult found herself climbing into the same rut. She was able to see the patterns and lean on her personal history as well as some learned nutritional behaviors, to change the future outcomes to what she wanted them to be. Listen to this episode and be encouraged by an amazing story of Behavior Change and honesty.  About Jackie:  Jackie Jackson is beginning her journey as an entrepreneur using all the tools for her experiences in teaching, behavior analysis and nutrition. Just two years ago,  Jackie was deeply struggling with her health and was faced with a choice: accept that she would never be “healthy” or find her own health. Since then she has gone on an incredible health journey and is now passionate about helping others do the same!

004-A Conversation with Steven Hayes
Hey all! Happy Thanksgiving from The Behavior Chef Team! I hope you all have a great holiday, (if you celebrate) and hope you have a great day if you don't celebrate! I hope that today's episode will be one that is so valuable to you. At the beginning of October I had the extreme pleasure to interview Dr. Steven Hayes, creator of Relational Frame Theory and more currently, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. We discussed several topics including ACT and the application to nutrition, pivoting towards personal success and the details behind his new book A Liberated Mind (which can be found at or anywhere books are sold).  My hope for this episode is that you, the listener, get to come along the journey with us to a more vulnerable self-discovery. I know I was able to access a deeper part of myself and relate it to my own personal behavior journey through this conversation with Dr. Hayes and I hope that you can too.  Thanks for Listening! -Clint Evans BCBA-LBA
