Today’s episode features probably the biggest name in body image today - the dynamic, authentic, sparkly powerhouse and Director of the Embrace Documentary Taryn Brumfitt. Taryn vulnerably shares her personal story, we explore the often missed “how-tos” of developing an authentically positive body image, and dive deep into the relationship between body image, eating, exercise and weight.
In this special conversation Taryn and I discuss:
- That we are over hating our bodies.
- How health professionals are as ready for change as their clients!
- Taryn’s viral “Reverse Before-and-After” shot that “broke people’s brains”
- How you can Embrace the miracle of your body.
- Why we need to share our personal body image stories
- Using our social media for the power of GOOD!
- How to become AUTHENTICALLY body positive.
- Judging less and loving more.
- Having conversations with people we DON’T agree with!
- Why it’s important to be vulnerable.
- How to “find your tribe” of supportive friends and health professionals!
- Can you lose weight in a loving way?
- Accepting your body when others around you don’t.
- Creating space for elevated conversations around bodies.
- Dealing with parents and grandparents fat shaming your kids.
- Taryn’s advice for people who feel weight is stopping them finding a partner.
