Listening Club: Food Freedom with Health Coach Lina Salazar | The Yard - Eastern Market Coworking Office Space | Thursday, 28. June 2018

PODCAST LISTENING CLUB: #003 / Food Freedom with Co-Host Lina Salazar, Live Well 
Behold.Her, LiveWell and Sweet Green join forces to hold a podcast club series around food freedom for women in the DMV at The Yard.  Food freedom touches on a variety of issues such as body image, eating disorders, emotional eating, binge eating, self-esteem, fat acceptance, among others. The Listening Club series on food freedom will be a space to have constructive and uplifting discussions around women’s tricky relationship with food/body.
Sometimes we’re aware of it, sometimes we aren’t, but the fear of gaining weight or being fat scares most women. As a result, we become obsessed about what we should or shouldn’t eat, how we should or shouldn’t look.
These thoughts determine the way we experience food and relate to our bodies. We often feel guilt or shame after we eat or look at ourselves in the mirror. For some women this is a mild obsession, for others it turns into an eating disorder.
The opposite of this state of insanity is food freedom, a place in which we’re able to enjoy food and people around us, forgive ourselves when we eat too much and don’t try to “correct” it for the sake of weight-loss, and feel more at ease in our own skin.
Food freedom doesn’t come once we’re able to change our shape and size. We achieve it when we transform the way we think. For June’s Listening Club, we take a step in that direction and challenge the way we think about fat, dieting, body acceptance, health and wellness. Join us if you want to have an open, non-judgemental conversation about making peace with food and our bodies.
