Episode Summary

In today’s episode of the SHE Talks Health podcast, we’re getting to the bottom of why weight struggles aren’t always about the things we’re eating. I know so many of us struggle with our relationship with food and our bodies. If you’ve ever felt frustrated, confused, or even hopeless about your eating habits or weight, this episode will offer you some hope and understanding. 

I’m thrilled to share my conversation with the incredible Jiordana Sadde, a clinical nutritionist and food psychology expert who knows just how hard our relationship with food can be at times. During our conversation, Jiordana shares her experience with childhood obesity and eating disorders and how she finally found true peace with food. 

She helps us understand that our struggles aren’t our fault — they often stem from subconscious programming that started in childhood. You’ll learn why simply knowing what’s “healthy” often isn’t enough to change our behaviors, and how our thoughts and emotions profoundly impact our body’s response to food. Jiordana’s insights might just help you see your relationship with food in a whole new light.

I hope this conversation offers you some comfort and practical steps forward if you’re struggling with food noise, limiting beliefs around food, self-sabotage, or anything that’s keeping you stuck in a frustrating cycle. Remember, your worth is not tied to your weight or what you eat. You deserve peace and freedom around food, and Jiordana is proof that it is possible.
