About This Show
Aren’t you tired of hating your body, tired of counting calories, tired of making your scale decide whether you get to feel good today or (more likely) not? Aren’t you tired of feeling guilty for eating what you like, tired of exercising obsessively to get rid of that guilt? Tired of the negative self-talk-chatter in your head?
Aren’t we all?
So. Welcome home.
Let’s start this journey toward body positivity, a better body image, acceptance of diversity and a more balanced approach to health; goodbye to body negativity, fat-phobia, disordered eating and a compulsive relationship to exercise. Confidence is an inside job and it’s high time we bust the myth that weight should dictate our worth. Let’s start this journey to loving our bodies from a Health At Every Size perspective and let’s nourish our body, mind and soul without going crazy.

Download Episode! Hey there, lovely radicals... podcast time! This week on the "Life. Unrestricted." podcast, I get to talk to Dr. Michelle May from Phoenix, Arizona. Dr. Michelle May is a former physician, mindful eating speaker, and recovered yo-yo dieter who founded the "Am I Hungry?"-company that offers mindful eating programs and training. "Am I Hungry?" empowers people to end chronic dieting and to get back a fulfilling life without deprivation and guilt. She is also the award-winning author of the book "Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat" and, based on the success people had with her first book, Dr. Michelle May wrote and published three more books: "Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat for Diabetes", "Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat for Binge Eating" and "Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat for Bariatric Surgery". Her books, programs and retreats are all designed to help people increase self-awareness of beliefs, habits, thoughts, feelings and physical sensations, to finally understand why diets do not work, to discover simple yet powerful methods for knowing when, what, and how much to eat without restriction. Since finding her passion in helping people get out of their dieting traps, Michelle has retired from her medical practice to focus fully on sharing the mindful eating method. Along the way she has been featured on countless media outlets and publications, her personal success story is featured in "Chicken Soup for the Dieter’s Soul", and it could well be that Michelle’s unique yet common sense approach will change the way we think about eating. Today, Michelle talks about: – How she felt in her body as a child – Why she though she "needed to go on a diet" when she was only 11 years old – How easy it is to market anything "weight-loss-y" to people, and what specific product her mother bought to "suppress her hunger" – How much we tend to keep believing the "weight-loss guaranteed"-products/programs because their advertisements is so convincingly designed, and at what cost that comes – What lies she bought into as she was looking
