Ditch Your Diet with Jenna Hollenstein
Watch Episode 46 with Jenna Hollenstein here:
A lot of people who are self-conscious about their bodies tend to fall into dieting cycles and find themselves confused about what their bodies really need.
What kind of calorie count should you maintain? How much protein should you eat? When does your diet become something more sinister?
Today’s guest is Jenna Hollenstein, an author and registered non-diet dietitian who helps people who are struggling with chronic dieting, disordered eating, and diagnosed eating disorders.
Jenna joins Dotsie and Alexandra to share how she helps her clients find a greater sense of peace and wellness through a non-diet approach.
They also talk about how people’s relationship with food stems from segregating the body and how you can recover from that division.
Tune in to hear how Jenna replaces dieting with healing, what you need to know about Intuitive Eating, how to help your children develop good eating habits, and more.
