Welcome Back Everyone, I’m Yael Trusch your host and you’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess. I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving, if you celebrated it. You know what I did most of Thanksgiving vacation? I decluttered my home. So, while everyone is on a frenzy buying things on Black Friday I’m still getting rid of stuff, selling stuff online or giving it away. Boy does it feel good! That’s all good, but what’s even better is that I also celebrated my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah the Sunday before Thanksgiving and that was amazing. So, this past week was my week to recover from that event. We brought in Rochie Pinson, Author of Rising the Book of Challah, whom you may remember from all the way back in Episode 58, specifically for the Bat Mitzvah! If you’re following me on Instagram you probably caught already some of the pictures.
So, let’s get to today’s interview which is a good one! Let me ask you this: Have you ever been on a diet? Have you been on several diets? Well, according to my guest and other guests I’ve had on the show, this might be a road you don’t want to take, for you could be turning off the natural intuitive eating cues that G-d put into your body. And you might have been doing this for years, which might be exacerbating the problem you want to get rid of in the first place. Ladies, I have Gila Glassberg on the show!
Gila Glassberg is a Master’s level Registered Dietitian and a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor. She became passionate about the field of nutrition and dietetics as a teenager. What happened as a teenager, which led her to the field of nutrition? Being in a dangerous place and being in a borderline place when it comes to negative thoughts and behaviors around food – Can this be turned around? How can you help your child not go down a negative path when it comes to disordered eating? Really, practically, how do we avoid sending the wrong messages to our teens? Trust is a big part of it, mothers. How did Gila come across the non diet, weight neutral approach to health called Intuitive Eating? And, what was the disconnect between her training as a Registered Dietitian and Intuitive Eating? By the way, what is the difference between a nutritionist and a Registered Dietitian? Important to know. We also go deep into the benefits of this approach. Gila works one-on-one and in group settings to help Jewish women break out of chronic dieting, and regain clarity into what is really important to them.
