Thank you, Sarah and Cassidy, for coming on to share you experience with religious fasting after an eating disorder! Here's the link to read the mentioned article that Sarah wrote: Not Pregnant, Just Fat.
Answering the below questions from you guys. I hope you enjoy! For the post version, click here.
“How do you handle or how would you handle your kids around family that does not do intuitive eating? Such as extended family members with really unhealthy behaviors around food (very into diets, overly controlled portions, passing up meals, etc).”
"How can I get truly started with intuitive eating? I feel like I kind of follow the principles, but want to get better at listening to my hunger cues.”
“Can you clarify the benefits of structured/mechanical eating and how it compares to IE?”
“How do you keep social media boundaries and make it a positive place?”
“How much should I pay attention to food? I want to nourish myself and get enough fruits and veggies, but I don’t want to focus on it too much. Where’s the balance?”
"Can you discuss intuitive eating while pregnant? I know there are guidelines about gaining 25-30 lbs when pregnant, but I’d love to hear more non-diet tips for navigating a healthy relationship with food while pregnant."
Once a month (the fourth Tuesday of every month), I'd like to do a throwback episode where I talk you through an old post - what I still agree with and what I see differently now. First up: blaming your body + tolerating being bored.
My favorite type of post: 5 Thoughts! Sharing some food recommendation, my reading line up for 2021, religious fasting post ED call for help, home management tidbit that's helping me, and realization on how God is anti-sin, not anti-happiness.
I'm going to start narrating my blog posts for you! Just in case you are like me and prefer listening to things over reading! This year I'll be recording me reading my latest blog posts and adding some extra commentary! We're kicking of 2021 with a life update. I hope you and your family are doing well :)
