The “Bite Sized Education” Series

This week we are chatting about life after chronic dieting. When we let go of the routine, rules, and structure that diet culture offers as a safety net for eating, we are often faced with the unknown of how to be a mindful eater. We know that diet culture is toxic and the rules ignored our body attunement, but how do we switch gears? Especially when dieting has offered us reliability in an unreliable life. We share tips for mindful eating, offer journal prompts to explore the fears of letting go of dieting, and how to let go of control over our bodies to find body trust.


Our amazing listeners also wrote in and in this episode we will answer the following question:


Dear Mom Genes, 

I am over it!  I have dieted for, literally, my entire life. I was put on a diet by my parents as a kid and have just continued that cycle throughout my entire adult hood.  Now that I have given up on dieting I feel lost and very scared about the unknown as well as what my future holds.  Am I capable of doing life without dieting?  One of the main reasons that I am rejecting dieting is for my kids, because I don’t want them to grow up with the same lifestyle that I had, but I feel pretty lost.  What is next?  HELP! Wandering Parent
