Episode Overview

Let’s talk rebellious eating! When you decide to reject diet culture or food rules, you may find yourself eating without abandon… And unable to stop. Every time you think about passing on dessert or curtailing your evening snacking, the rebel inside you awakens and demands food. While it can feel good to rebel against diet culture (we highly recommend it), we also know that rebellious eating for long periods of time may not be serving your long time health and wellness goals.

So how do we meet in the middle? Is it possible to tame our inner rebel? Annie and Jen discuss just that in this week’s podcast.
