Audra

This episode with Audra Dennison was one I recorded quite a while ago so when I relistened before airing it this week I’d forgotten how great it was and how tremendously helpful Audra had been to me personally in my own journey to healing my metabolism and getting my period back after years of dieting and restricting my food. This episode does focus heavily on diet recovery and if you’ve always been a ‘normal eater’ you might think this episode would be boring for you but I’d encourage you to still listen because it will give you insight into the way many people live when it comes to dieting and controlling their food and exercise. I share a bunch about my own story in this episode and open up about where I am at now vs where I’ve been with body image.  We talk about healing your metabolism  and get way into the Minnesota starvation experiment under research scientist Ancel Keys which is REAL fascinating. We discuss the importance of learning to embrace your adult body and not wanting your body to look like it did as a child + many other things so just listen, okay? Trust me it’s a good one.
