The Mindful Dietitian Interview Series - Christy Harrison

It was enormous pleasure to speak with our wonderful colleague, Christy Harrison, host of Food Psych Podcast. Christy has spoken to so many incredible leaders in the Health At Every Size and Body Positive spaces, and has been instrumental in supporting both fellow Dietitians and the general community find a voice and a sense of peace in reconnecting with food, eating and their bodies.

Here, Christy shares:

  • Her favourite Podcast guests, and why!
  • How she moved from a disordered, to intuitive relationship with food - yes, whilst being a Dietitian!
  • How do you know if you've healed enough yourself to move into helping others?
  • Her thoughts on the question "Can I do both weight loss and Non Diet Approach?"
  • How the restrict-binge cycle might sneak into our lives in ways that have nothing to do with food
  • Important conversations about bringing feminism and politics into her work
  • How we can take care of ourselves in the work we do

And so much more!
