Steph interviews Michelle Shapiro, an integrative/ functional registered dietitian about how to approach body composition change and health in a more holistic way. Michelle has helped over 1000 clients reverse their anxiety, heal their gut issues and approach their weight lovingly. Michelle is vocal in the functional nutrition space about bridging the gap between body positivity and intentional health changes. In this episode, they talk about the diet industry, health at every size movement, and the shame some women feel when they have the desire to change. They talk about the emotional and spiritual side of weight loss, a part that often gets neglected in traditional calories in, calories out models. Michelle shares what’s been working for her clients, which doesn’t come down to having more “willpower”. You’ll love the honest dialogue between these two practitioners and walk away feeling more seen, heard, and understood.
