Changed my life
Amazing podcast, very informative, and it already changed my life for the better! Everyone needs to listen to this gem. I am so very grateful for Christy and all her guests who do such an important work. I am on a journey to re-learn intuitive eating and joyful movement after giving up dieting 5 years ago... I just could not leave the mindset behind, I restricted mentally and punished myself with exercise. Not anymore! THANK YOU!!
