Have you ever felt trapped in a cycle of dieting and discontent with your eating habits? 🔄

Today on the pod, I am joined by Leah Kern, a unique voice in the field of intuitive eating.

As an anti-diet dietitian and certified intuitive eating counselor, Leah brings a spiritual approach to her practice, a perspective that I was eager to explore. ✨

Our conversation delves into Leah’s personal journey, from her initial struggles with disordered eating to her path of healing through community and intuitive eating.

Dieting and disordered eating can be an incredibly lonely place, and finding a community to support you in your journey is essential.

Leah talks about the friendships that she built that helped her along the way.

I asked Leah what she thinks is the biggest challenge for people to tune into their own messages and how they are feeling.

Leah described the biggest challenge as making that initial switch, tuning out the people who are telling you what to do, what to eat, and how to exercise, and tuning into yourself and what you want.

Part of making that switch is using the universal attunement question, which Leah walks through with me at the end of the episode.

Leah also has a free panel on June 6th. She will discuss some of the common struggles going into the summer through the lens of food. You can find that free panel HERE.

I hope that you enjoy this discussion with Leah as much as I did!
