Podcasts are a great way to dip into the world of intuitive eating, or to dig deeper into specific topics related to intuitive eating. Many of my colleagues who are experts in this area host fabulous podcasts. Here is a list of 13 of the best intuitive eating podcasts (IMO) to help you integrate the principles of intuitive eating and anti-diet approach into your life.

When it comes to learning about intuitive eating and putting the principles into practice, there are so many free or low cost resources available now. (I’ve got a bunch of my favorite resources rounded up for you!). The podcasts space has just exploded in the past few years, and there are so many wonderful podcasts about intuitive eating and food freedom. I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite intuitive eating podcasts below!

The podcasts below all feature experts in the area of intuitive eating exploring topics related to pregnancy, advocacy, gut health, diet culture, wellness culture, weight, etc. For each podcast, I share a short description and recommend a couple of episodes to get you started.

You can also listen to my podcast interviews on Food Psych (breaking free from food restriction), Food Heaven (trouble shooting intuitive eating), and Intuitive Bites (navigating diet culture in the new year).

And if you’ve got any other favorites that I didn’t list, please comment and share with me below.

Happy listening!

I recommend starting with episode #006: I’m Full. Now What? (Feel Your Fullness), or episode #007: It Hits Different (Discover the Satisfaction Factor).

9. Maintenance Phase with Aubrey Gordon and Michael Hobbes

Aubrey Gordon, author of What We Don’t Talk About When We Talk About Fat, and co-host Michael Hobbes release biweekly episodes dedicated to debunking the science behind health fads, wellness scams and nonsensical nutrition advice with a side of humor along the way. Maintenance Phase is listed as one of the top 100 podcasts on iTunes. I recommend starting with the episode on: The Body Mass Index, or the one on: Bonus: Fad Diets, or: The Trouble With Calories.
