096 | Alexandra Jamieson on Food, Desires, Listening to Your Body, Riding the Waves of Life

Alex-JamiesonAlex Jamieson is such a cool person so I was thrilled to get her on the show. I first discovered Alex when I was in high school and I saw her documentary Super Size Me in health class. Since then I’ve followed her journey of authentically sharing online as she’s grown and changed both her relationship to food and her life in general. We talk about authenticity, life transitions, and also get into the topics of her newest book Women, Food, and Desire. Alex is the ‘Cravings Whisperer‘ guiding people to follow all of their true cravings in life. She dares us to face our cravings head-on, to make the self-commitment to no longer hide out behind food, self-loathing, or the limiting expectations of others. With love, deep compassion, and fearless honesty, she encourages us to boldly use food as a just one of many tools lift the nutritional, emotional, physical, and mental blocks that limit our ability to live full, meaningful, and joyful life. We talk so much about pleasure in this episode, finding pleasure in our food but also through sex, relationships, community, and career. I loved relistening to this episode as I put it up and I can’t wait for you to hear it now too.
