Dr. Gia Marson: Intuitive Eating for a Healthy Food Bond | Self-Improvement Atlas #49

Building a healthy relationship with food often takes several rounds of trial and error—and sometimes it feels cyclical—especially with diet culture popularized by the media. But in recent years, ‘intuitive eating’ has been making waves. So, this week on Self-Improvement Atlas: The Personal Science Insights Podcast, host Marie Stella is joined by a psychologist, Dr. Gia Marson, to learn more about the anti-diet approach.

As a psychologist, Dr. Gia has had over two decades of experience helping adolescents and adults with their coping skills, but outside of the clinic, she has written several articles for PsychologyToday and Goop, as well as authored ‘Overcome Emotional Eating and Find Freedom with Food’ and co-authored ‘The Binge Eating Prevention Workbook’. But even more impressively, Gia has served as the founding director of the UCLA Counseling and Psychological Services Eating Disorders Program.

In this episode, Dr. Gia first starts by outlining the core principles of intuitive eating, as well as the main purpose of the anti-diet approach. She surmises that intuitive eating is beneficial particularly to those who struggle with low self-perception, and offers advice on applying these principles to everyday life. Together, Marie and Dr. Gia discuss the challenges to be wary of when attempting to practice intuitive eating, along with common misconceptions about the anti-diet approach.

So, tune in this week for exceptional insights and advice on making intuitive eating work for your goals and your life!
