In this episode I cover how bacon is not a super food. Dietitian Meg McClintock from www.choosenutrition.com.au comes on the show to discuss all you need to know about pre and postnatal nutrition. Meg explains how our relationship with our body directly impacts our relationship with food. She encourages listeners to move away from being a certain weight (or body part - thigh gap / bikini bridge) focus to a health focus being the first step in building a healthy relationship with food.
From there we can learn get back in touch with and trust our body's hunger and fullness cues and learn to eat mindfully. Having good self image (and media literacy) can protect against doing unhealthy things to get skinny. If you love you body, you are more likely to care for it by having healthy behaviours around food and exercise. Meg also has a special offer for listeners if you want a 15% discount on a 12 week post natal Pilates exercises classes visit www.bodybeyondbirth.com and use the code “15” this is also the website where you can read some of her pre/post natal articles.
