As a journalist, Virginia Sole-Smith tells stories of women. With her new book, The Eating Instinct: Food Culture, Body Image and Guilt in America, Virginia explores how we can find the power to reconnect to our bodies and our own innate understanding of how to eat in a culture that’s constantly giving women so many mixed messages about both those things.    In this episode, Virginia shares about how she began her career giving diet advice in teen and women’s magazines and experiencing cognitive dissonance as she navigated her own body image struggles. Virginia shares how her daughter suddenly stopped eating as a newborn and how this affected her as a mother. She explores how seeing her daughter struggle with food helped Virginia challenge the dominate narrative that demonizes food. The Eating Instinct tells the stories of women, men, and children, all learning how to eat again, on their own terms and shares more about how her daughter finally reconnected to her eating instinct.   Links mentioned: Virginia's book: The Eating Instinct Virginia's website: https://virginiasolesmith.com/ May's Positive Nutrition webinar is for registered dietitians: ACT Mindfully: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in Dietetics Practice and will be worth 1.5 CEUs - May 21, 2019 at 10am MST Subscribe to keep in touch Positive Nutrition for Life: Heal Your Relationship with Food online course Positive Nutrition 101: The Science of Nutrition without the Gimmicks online course Mindful Eating Workshop online course Donate to the podcast Positive Nutrition Blog Follow Paige on Instagram
