Joanne discusses her passion for helping women transform their relationship with food and their bodies, as well as her personal journey of overcoming body image issues and the deeper meaning behind these struggles.

We discuss the societal pressure on women to constantly strive for a certain ideal body image, leading to feelings of dissatisfaction and the belief that their bodies need fixing. We emphasize the importance of shifting focus towards self-acceptance, gratitude, and finding purpose beyond appearance.

Joanne discusses various myths about weight and weight loss, including the belief that eating less and exercising more is the key to long-term weight loss. She also emphasizes the importance of getting to know one's own body and finding a balance that promotes feeling healthy and energized.

We discuss the topic of emotional eating, highlighting the natural inclination to use food for comfort. Joanne also emphasizes the importance of understanding and addressing the underlying needs and emotions that drive emotional eating, as well as the value of community support and self-awareness in overcoming this habit.
