Episode Info:

This week we are thrilled to welcome Amy Elkins, President of Media & Marketing Innovation at STX, to the DENTalks podcast! If you’re a fan of reality TV, you might recognize Amy. Just last year she was on an episode of Khloe Kardashian’s Revenge Body, the TV series that uses personal trainers and stylists to give two individuals the ultimate interior and exterior makeover. In this episode, we’ll talk about her experience and takeaway from the show, as well as the pressures she faced growing up that influenced her weight gain. As a young athlete taking on four competitive sports, food became a method of self soothing and a way to ward off people’s expectations of her when she didn’t have the language or skills to advocate for herself. While surrounded by the support of well-intentioned people, Amy talks to us about why it’s so important to develop a mind-body awareness to the cause and effect of our decisions and the feelings those decisions bring up, in order to find a path to self empowerment. We’ll also talk about the expectations we set around women, how you can talk to your children about healthy choices, the all-too-common feeling of “imposter syndrome,” and what you can do to change your perspective when you’re stuck in a limited mindset.
