Season 2, Episode 1: The Missing Key to Sustainable Food Changes: Jess Ivin’s Story
While the health-care and diet industry would like you to believe we are all the same, the truth is:
You are a wonder, not a widget
You don’t need a plan to rebel and restrict you. You need a dynamic framework that changes as you and your body do.
In today’s episode, we’re going to talk with my client Jessica Ivins about the truth she discovered was required for lasting results AND continued progress.
In today’s episode, we’ll discuss:
- What questions she had entering our work together that kept her stuck and what questions she knows to ask now
- How she’s shifted her approach to her Endometreosis diagnosis
- Her empowering experience being fat shamed
- How she’s embraced the continious tweaking of being a dynamic human in a dynamic body
In this episode, we referenced this article Jess wrote about being fat shamed.
