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 17 of the best intuitive eating podcasts (IMO) to help you integrate the principles of intuitive eating and anti-diet approach into your life.
I mentioned in this post some of my favorite books for learning about intuitive eating and helping you put the principles into practice. Let’s face it though, we all struggle with packed schedules and sometimes it is tough to find the time to sit down and read a full book. Podcasts are a wonderful alternative! They have become super popular in the last few years as a way to entertain and educate on the go.
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.
