90: Exploring Normal Eating

It's that time of year!

I wanted to publish this conversation right before the holiday season because the end of the year tends to bring chaos and nervousness around food and eating for many people. This time of year can also bring seemingly incessant diet talk and weight loss talk. I wanted to provide a resource for getting through the holidays (and the rest of the year, too) and to provide ideas for developing a skill set around normal eating.

So, how do you approach food and eating without all the shoulds and shouldn'ts of dieting? What does 'normal eating' actually look like?

Luckily for us, many brilliant thinkers have tackled these questions and there's good research to back up the benefits of learning the art of eating competence and normal eating. Today on the podcast, Katherine Zavodni, MPH, RDN, CD and I discuss Ellyn Satter's definition of normal eating and explore the concept of Eating Competence.
