Rejecting Extremes, Finding Magic in the Grey Area of Health and Practicing Patience on the Healing Journey with Meg Dixon

 

Meg is a registered dietitian who works with women healing their gut, balancing hormones and recovering from disordered eating. She believes in the magic of living and eating intuitively. On this episode we dive into so many topics including why health doesn’t have to be your full time job, how to practice wellness without obsession, why there’s so much more to food than calories and labels and why patience and grace is key to healing.

 

We Talk About:

  • How they found their niche based on their experience and serendipity
  • How hormone health, eating disorder recovery and gut health are so intertwined
  • How to develop your own wellness with living life in mind
  • Why wellness is so much more than food
  • How do we pursue wellness with out obsessive behaviors or extremes

  • Meg encourages us to challenge expectations of yourself
  • Why so much of wellness is about being yourself
  • The value of living in the grey area
  • Why calories aren’t evil and they aren’t just a math equation
  • How do we promote a balanced approach to wellness without extremes
  • How do we get people in the happy grey area of wellness
  • Food should not be an extension of your morality
  • Eat based on how it makes your body feel not whether it’s a good or bad food
  • How binging or restricting is a maladaptive form of coping and how we can handle those emotions without abusing food
  • Why intuitive eating isn’t accessible right away to everyone and how to get there
  • Patience is an ultimate healing
  • Grace and patience is the foundation for healing
  • You don’t have to have it all together every day
