It Tastes Like Freedom
Summary: Non-diet nutritionist, embodiment & mindset coach, Chanci Dawn, went from selling weight-loss shakes for a living to devoting her life to setting herself, and other women, free from their constant struggle with food and allowing the size of their thighs to determine their worth. Listen in as Chanci and her guests share inspiring insights, revealing stories and simple strategies that’ll help you transform your relationship with food and your body in the most nurturing, free and loving way possible - through embodied eating. Chanci’s vision is that the raw, no-hold-back, girlfriend kind of convos will inspire and equip you to harness all the misspent time, energy and money on dieting and focus instead on living a life that you adore in a body that feels like home.
Shame - we carry it around like an abusive old friend to the point that we actually feel comfortable in it and fearful of what we’ll do without it. The sad truth is that shame will keep you stuck and often cause you to spiral down even further - never allowing you to experience true freedom. Listen in to inspire yourself to finally let go of this burden so you can create the deepest, most loving relationship with yourself that you deserve and desire.
Eating disorders and disordered eating are extremely prevalent issues in our society - yet they are rarely understood, and sadly, even glorified. Join Chanci and Doreen Fleischer as they discuss: - The difference between eating disorders and disordered eating - Red flags to look out for - How to talk to your teen about disordered eating - The path to healing and freedom - Pleasurable movement vs punishing exercise - Less known eating disorders - The mother/daughter relationship and its impact on the teen’s relationship with food and her body - Why it’s never a “perfect time” to start your path towards healing
Burn your rule book for others so YOU can feel exactly how you want to regardless of how people think, feel and act. In this Episode, Chanci explains why this is critical to your freedom and the practical steps of how to do it!
You’ve probably heard a lot about boundary setting and most likely much of that information is potentially damaging to yourself and to your relationships. Join Chanci in a conversation about setting boundaries that empower and heal.
When you heal your relationship with food and your body everything will shift! You’ll start showing up for yourself like never before!
How do you love your body when it feels like she’s betraying you? Join Chanci and her special guest, Nanci Dueck, as they explore this issue through the lens of living with PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder).
Sometimes the simplest of things can make all the difference! This has been Chanci’s experience with The Urge Jar!
It’s time to eliminate the shame and stigma around emotional eating and to begin to see it as the opportunity it is!
As you’re doing the work to heal your relationship with food and your body you will inevitably encounter circumstances that feel overwhelming. Ones that crush your heart and feel like they’ve set you back big time on your path to healing. For many women having a partner who looks at porn can be one of these things.
HEALTHY - This word is everywhere and if you pay close attention it usually has to do with losing weight or being thin. This is diet culture’s marketing at its finest and has the potential to create a lot of distrust in one’s body, massive confusion and encourages unhealthy practices in the pursuit of weight loss.
Growing up surrounded by fat phobic messages and the diet culture’s lies is HARD! Join Chanci and her teen daughter, Celeste, as they chat about Celeste’s personal experiences with her own food struggles, how she found freedom and how she now lives intentionally choosing what’s right for her over society’s lies.
It’s guaranteed that you’ll experience setbacks in your journey of Embodied Eating that’ll make you feel like you want to scream “screw it!” It sucks but can’t be avoided so let’s make sure you’re equipped!
Have you ever thought “How in the heck am I ever going to love my body when I really don’t even like her?” Trust me, this is a question I (Chanci) hear all the time. We are inundated with messages of body love and positivity and so many women feel crappy about not “getting there”. Enter in RESPECT! For me personally, this was exactly what I needed to shift to in my own journey to body confidence and I was thrilled when I saw that Paula was teaching the exact same message! So get ready to feel comforted, seen and incredibly encouraged as you listen to our convo about what it really takes to grow a loving relationship with your body.

Hustle, burnout, adrenal fatigue, go go go GO … I say NOPE! There’s a better way to show up for yourself and your goals without burning yourself out. It’s a gentle, compassionate and caring way and IT WORKS! Listen in as Chanci shares how she motivated herself to record this very podcast when all she wanted to do was curl up and binge-watch old Sex and The City Episodes.
