Physical activity has been co-opted by the diet industry just as food has – in other words, only good to get you to lose weight. No wonder thinking about body movement may send you into a fit of resistance or rebellion or make you feel guilty – feeling you’re not doing enough or not doing the right kind of activity that the experts say you should. If you struggle with binge eating, food addiction or emotional eating, you may struggle in finding a way to move your body that doesn’t feel like something you have to do or something you feel bad about not doing. In this podcast, you will learn:
  1. How to recognize if you’ve experienced exercise trauma.
  2. How to reclaim body movement as a form of self-expression.
  3. What the 3 most common reasons for not being physically active are and how to address them.
