Welcome Back after Shavuot! I hope you all had a good holiday. Are you perhaps feeling guilty about all the cheesecake and blintzes you ate during the Holiday? Maybe you didn’t celebrate Shavuot, but you went away for Memorial Day weekend and indulged in a way that has left you feeling out of sorts. Can someone relate to feelings of guilt, shame, uneasiness around food, around weight… obsessive thoughts about what we put in our mouths and what we don’t? Today, I have a very open and raw conversation about this topic with Rena Reiser. Rena is a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and the founder of Mind Over Munchies. She has changed the lives of countless women all over the world who have tried dieting, and are “fed up” of being distracted by food. If you are a woman looking to create a healthy relationship with food, leave diets behind, and reject the diet mentality for good, you must listen to today’s show. Through her Intuitive Eating coaching, Rena helps women truly get pleasure from the food they are eating, feel at peace and ease with themselves. As you will hear from today’s interview, Rena’s work is greatly emotional and deeply spiritual, and it’s positive effects will ripple further than your relationship with food into other areas of your life. I am thrilled to have found Rena and her work, and am so appreciative of her sensitivity, her warmth and honesty. Today, you will hear about her own journey, learn about Intuitive Eating – what is it and what it’s not – and hear Rena’s wise take on one powerful confession I made of something that shocked me coming into the religious world.
