The topic on the table today is, always a fav, your relationship with food and your body. My guest and I know this journey well. And, we both wholeheartedly believe in the following quote.
“The relentless attempts to be thin take you further and further away from what could actually end your suffering: getting back in touch with who you really are. Your true nature. Your essence.” – Geneen Roth
