Body Positive Podcasts – My Favourite Podcasts To Ditch Dieting And Gain Confidence

Body Positive Podcasts have become my little tribe that I listen to when I am walking, washing my dishes or just do things that don’t require much attention. After listening to lots of these episodes about body positivity and hearing many personal stories from women and men who have struggled with similar issues, I feel like I truly know these podcasters as much as I know some of my good friends.

 

It’s safe to say that many people have insecurities about their bodies and/or their food consumption. It’s just the world we live in. We’re constantly surrounded by messages and images that depict an ‘ideal’ body or an ‘ideal’ diet etc. Whether we realise it or not, we often internalise those messages, make them part of our daily lives and eventually start to believe them. That’s why I really believe we need to make a conscious effort to expose ourselves to messages that empower us, life us up and make us feel amazing and adequate.

 

Try it or yourself!

Each episode starts by reading a listener’s “letter to food,” sharing their story and struggle with their relationship with food.

I always appreciate the gentle way she responds to readers questions, and the way she’s able to break down difficult to understand concepts in such a relatable way.
