Dietitians Unplugged Podcast

Welcome to the Dietitians Unplugged Podcast with Aaron Flores and Glenys Oyston.  Join us as we explore the idea of health and wellness from a new perspective. Each episode we will discuss topics that we hope to help you improve your health, body image and fitness without obsessing on the scale or counting calories.  We believe in Health at Every Size®, Intuitive Eating, and body positivity and we want to help you build the confidence to ditch the scale, and embrace your health without shaming your body.

Aaron and Glenys continue their conversation with their friend and colleague, Fiona Sutherland, Health At Every Size® and non-diet dietitian and director of The Mindful Dietitian in Melbourne, Australia.

Fiona is host of the podcast “The Mindful Dietitian” and teaches across Masters Level Dietetic training programs at several different Universities in Melbourne specifically in Counseling Skills and Weight Inclusive Approaches in Dietetics. Fiona is also a dedicated mindfulness practitioner and Yoga Teacher, bringing a particular emphasis on embodiment, mindful eating and body image into her work and training. She is a great lover of ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and trauma-informed approaches to Dietetic work.

In part two, they discuss:
-How trauma and chronic stress impacts our bodies and minds
-The need for our bodies to feel safe, and how intellectualizing feelings backfires in feeling safety
-The brain science behind mindfulness and how it can help integrate body and mind
-The importance of a trauma-informed approach to mindfulness
-How we can practice mindfulness even when we don’t want to meditate
-How becoming more mindful can enable helping professionals to show up better for those in pain
