If you’ve ever struggled with your relationship to your body or to food, today’s conversation is a powerful one for you. 

Toni Marinucci is the owner of Tips with Toni, teaching people how not to diet. Her team of Registered Dietician’s provide online nutrition coaching to help women break free from the ‘all or nothing’ mindset and encourage balance instead. Toni's mission is to end restrictive diet culture by providing simple tips to healthy living while incorporating the foods you love. She recently gave a TEDx talk and wrote a book titled Once Upon a Diet, where she discusses the parallels between dieting, dating, and romantic relationships, and how we treat them the same.

In this episode, we discuss the parallels between dieting and how we treat our bodies, our relationships, and our businesses. We also discuss the ways in which we withhold from ourselves, we disassociate, and the ways in which we perpetuate old patterns. This is such an expansive and encouraging conversation, that I hope will serve you well.

As a note: today we discuss eating orders and our experiences with them. If this is a sensitive topic for you right now this might not be the podcast for you to listen to at the moment.

Please always honor your needs first, this information will be here for you to listen to whenever you feel ready.
