The Pursuing Private Practice Podcast with Jennifer McGurk
Fiona Young joins me on this episode to talk about how we can merge MNT recommendations with an intuitive eating, non-diet, weight-inclusive approach.
We talk about how our own eating disorder recovery journeys have led us to want and crave healthier options for food. Nutrition is a big deal to both of us, but it’s only one aspect of someone’s overall health. Health outcomes are largely based on our environment, not our individual personal choices, but we do recognize that the influence that our choices do have can be important.
Some of the topics discussed include:
- Making intuitive eating fit with the treatment of chronic conditions
- Transitioning from leaving full-time work to do part-time work + private practice and then to private practice only
- Transitioning from a scarcity mindset to one of confidence
- How to appreciate eating nutrient-dense foods while also supporting others who shouldn’t be focused on the “health” of foods
Congrats on starting a private practice! I bet you’re so excited, but if you’re feeling overwhelmed with all of the advice coming at you from all over the place–I get it!
