Re-Claiming Wellness Through Diet Culture: Bridget and Dana from Wellness Lately

Tired of the vicious cycle that is modern dieting?

Learn to eat what your body naturally craves, without depriving yourself of nutrition.

Bridget Shannon and Dana Barron are the Founders of Wellness Lately. Their mission is to reclaim wellness from diet culture. Their work is rooted in body liberation and food freedom, helping women all over the world to escape the painful diet-binge cycle, upgrade their body image, and embrace true well-being. Through their coaching programs, events and community they teach the principles of Intuitive Eating, Health at Every Size, Body Neutrality and Holistic Wellness.

My favorite part of this conversation was our discussion of the vicious cycle that can happen when processed food harms metabolic health, while dieting harms our relationship with food.  These two problems can start to feed each other, and the cycle can feel impossible to escape.  Bridget and Dana use an approach that starts with cultivating a healthier mentality around food, but that then allows for gentle improved nutrition as a natural outcome of that.

In this episode, we discuss:

– How to strike a balance between intuitive eating and eating healthfully

– The difference between ‘diet’ and ‘diet culture’

– Why dieting for weight loss is usually harmful in the long run

– Intuitive eating approaches and tips

– How the process of developing intuitive eating typically looks

Overall, this was an in-depth conversation that applies to almost any woman in the modern world.  You can connect with Bridget and Dana via their free master class (5 shifts to end binge eating), Facebook group, podcast, or Instagram:
