Do you struggle with your diet? Rather, do you struggle with STICKING to your diet? Today's guest is Dr. Kori Propst. Kori is a health psychologist at the Diet Doc and the Mental Edge program, where she works to uncover the motivation(s) behind and the mindset of eating. She helps clients work on what and HOW we think, tendencies we have, triggers we have, and developing emotional agility. In today's show, we had some amazing conversations about diet, the mindsets/tendencies we have surrounding diet, our triggers, and so much more. Here are some highlights of our conversation:
-Emotional agility and learning to do backbends over barriers,
-Becoming more aware and open minded of our dietary thoughts/behaviors,
-Coaching from a strength-based perspective vs a shame-based perspective,
-Being able to identify where our problems, issues, and triggers stem from,
-Self control when it comes to eating and the "what the hell" effect,
-Deep-rooted fears of rejection, lack of connection, and the desire to belong with our "tribes,"
-Developing the skill of emotional regulation,
-Why willpower doesn't work (and what does),
-Why self sabotage is actually just self protection,
-"Intuitive" eating vs. "intelligent" eating
-So much more!
Dr. Propst is such a wealth of knowledge. You can find her here:
Today's episode of EMBody Radio is brought to you by Four Sigmatic. Four Sigmatic provides the best in adaptogenic/therapeutic mushroom products. You’ve seen me post about this stuff on Instagram and IG stories all the time, and I wanted to take a sec to tell you a little more about them today. I started using them because I love adaptogens, and many of their mushroom products are just that – adaptogens. Adaptogens basically help you respond better to physical and emotional stress. I run a business, run multiple social media platforms that tie into my business, I’m a student, and I have a life outside of all that that I’m trying to live, so stress management is key. Mushrooms can also be used to help everything from your gut health to your skin.
My favorites are the Lion's Mane Mushroom Elixir and the Mushroom Hot Cacao with Reishi... Be sure to listen to the whole episode to learn why ;). If you want to try Four Sigmatic products, use the code "EMDUNC" to get 15% off your order at foursigmatic.com/emdunc.
