Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Welcome to body cons. Thank you so much for listening. I'm Molly Forbes. And this is usually the part of the podcast when my co-host Loti says I'm Lottie story except Lahti is actually sitting here with me today during the pandemic were actually recording this slightly different days. So if you're listening to this thinking why is molly on her own whereas Lottie gone? This is not some sort of salacious gossip. There's no drama. It's not like when Jerry left the spice girls or I don't know when Robbie went solo leaving tape that no not at all. Laci is very much here. She's done the interview this week and next week it will be me during the interview. And we're basically taking in tons so if you've listened to previous episodes of body cons previous series. You'll know that usually it's very much a conversation between me and Lottie together around our kitchen table and then we go off together and we travel around the country and we interviewed various different experts. Oviously that is not possible at the moment. Lachey lives in Bristol. I live in Devon so. We're recording the POKU separately. I'm putting it together and hopefully you will still appreciate this. Glorious Mishmash the brilliant different people that we're speaking to and you'll be kind to us and not be to cross the audio. Might not sound as polished as you used to so normally we shy going up or going down but we thought for this emergency series of party cons. No one needs to head the going down going down around us everywhere the moment so we thought instead we would just take it in turns to chef from that. We both love so this week. It's my turn and I wanted to share something that I saw Ruby Tondo tweets last week there was a TV show on BBC solely problematic TV. Show I'm not gonNA name it because I'm not going to be negative but I was not a fan and Ruby. Tondo is not a fan either and so she wanted to chef some loveliness and joyous stuff about eating and food and kind of a healthy relationship with food even looks like and this is actually something that I read in tally. Reis Book recently. It's a quote from Ellen. Sata from her book which is a one thousand nine hundred. Eighty three book called secrets of feeding a healthy family. Ellen Sata is a Dietitian and psychotherapist and I just saw the way that she talks about eating and what normal eating in inverted commas is. I just saw. It was just really lovely so I'm going to read it to you. Normal eating is eating competence. It is going to the table hungry and eating until you are satisfied. It is being able to choose foods you enjoy and eats it and truly get enough of it. Not just stop eating because he thinks he should normally eating is being able to give some thought to your food selections so you get nutritious food but not being so wary restrictive that you miss out on enjoyable food. Normally eating is giving yourself permission to eat. Sometimes because you are happy sad or board or just because it feels good normally ting is mostly three meals a day or four or five or it can be choosing to munch along the way. It is leaving some cookies on the plate. Because you know you can have some again tomorrow or it is eating more now because they taste so wonderful. Normally eating is over eating at times feeling stuffed and uncomfortable and it comes under eating at times and wishing you had more normal eating is.
