Let’s be honest…most of us have tried some kind of diet at some point in our lives. And most often, it is to lose weight or achieve some kind of body ideal that we have set in our minds.
But dieting can easily send us on a track to disordered eating, negative body image and poor self-esteem. When we fixate on foods being good or bad, numbers on the scale, and the never ending quest to lose “just 5-10 pounds,” it can lead to feelings of depression, anxiety, and even trauma.
The diet industry makes millions of dollars by marketing unattainable standards of thinness to women that are based on western beauty standards and completely dismiss healthy living and eating habits based on ethnic, religious or other cultural traditions. And when we have these images delivered to us constantly through tv, social media, and print, it is very easy to develop a negative with food and the scale.
Join Jamie and her guests, Tonya and Tracy as they explore how you can push back against the diet fad industry, find peace with food, and develop a more positive relationship with your body.

Meet Tonya + Tracy:
Tonya Beauchaine and Tracy Vazquez have been friends for a decade, they have been through ups and downs, weight gains and weight losses together. Their podcast, We’re Not Weighting started out because they were both fed up with waiting around for their lives to start. Waiting to be a certain size, lose a certain amount of weight, or waiting to look a certain way. They have conversations about life, weight, Intuitive Eating, Health at Every Size, the pressure to be thin, and live up to these standards of society. Tonya is a certified Intuitive Eating coach Health at Every Size® advocate and nutrition counselor. She’s working to break the mold of who and what a nutritionist is. She works with others to find freedom in their relationship with food. Her favorite part of working with clients is helping them set up an Intuitive Kitchen. Tracy is a body image coach. She helps women find confidence in the bodies they have. She’s no longer waiting to be a certain size but accepting her body the way it is. She’s on a mission to help women feel confident and comfortable right here and now.
