Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 59: Health At Every Size with Molly Bahr

Molly Bahr believes in body liberation. You are not the food you eat, the beliefs you have and the guilt you feel after that cookie. She focuses on helping people make peace with food and their body while creating a full and meaningful life. 

Molly Bahr is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in private practice in Miami, Florida and also provides virtual sessions to residents of Florida and Hawaii. Molly works with disordered eating, body image, body shame, anxiety, depression, and trauma. She is a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, trained in EMDR, and practices from a Health At Every Size lens. Molly has worked in a variety of treatment settings including inpatient and outpatient programs for eating disorders, substance abuse disorders, and an outpatient transgender clinic.

Today Molly and I bust some myths about diet culture, discuss intuitive eating and how to listen in to your body’s signals. We also dig into social influence and how a comparison culture creates negative internal talk. 

I love Molly’s encouragement to liberate your body, realizing that it is not your identity, and that you have so much more to offer the world. As she said, “Your life purpose is not to lose weight.”

You can find her on Instagram where she promotes body acceptance, body liberation, information to improve mental health, and your relationship with food and body @mollybcounseling

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 34: Intuitive Eating with Sydney Spoon

Sydney Spoon, MS, RDN, CSSD, LD is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Sports Dietitian. She has her Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition Sciences and her Master of Science degree in Exercise Physiology. After spending time working in a clinical setting she has started her own private practice and teaches at UNLV.

Today Sydney and I get real about diet culture, the clean plate club and the belief that restriction is a good thing. We debunk intermittent fasting, emotional eating, celery juice and the world of detox. 

Sydney talks about the benefits of intuitive eating and how we’ve learned to ignore our body’s own brilliance. 

Grab your green juice and let’s dig in. 

Thank you so much for joining today! I love Sydney’s overarching message that moderation is our friend, and that all the vegetables are good for you. She also speaks from the heart when she talks about her value being far more than the body she inhabits and a beautiful message for women and girls.
