I sat down with Brittany Lynn Kriger, founder of The Soul Food Project, author + anti-diet Health Coach to talk about mindful eating and ditching dieting! 

We talk about how 'perfect eating' is an illusion and how to learn to listen to our bodies and trust ourselves when it comes to food. 


Plus, we go over: 

~ (3:06) How to feel "in control" of your food without a diet plan

~ (5:15) The truth about WILLPOWER + how the diet industry leverages it

~ (11:40) Have your cake and eat it too - how health + hedonism can co-exist

~ (16:05) Eat mindfully with us (bring a snack!)





*Don't miss out on the exercise you can do with us that starts at 16:05.

Bring a snack + do it with us!!!
