The Wellness Revolution Podcast with Amber Shaw

TWR 026: Nurturing, Loving, and Caring for Your Body with Holly Toronto

The general diet culture imposes such a high level of restriction and commitment, that what was supposed to be an easy process, becomes a nightmare for a lot of people. It’s hard enough for someone who wants to lose a few pounds, so imagine what it’s like for girls dealing with eating disorders and, at the same time, facing a certain pressure from society to “change” and lose weight in order to be “worthy”.

In this episode of The Wellness Revolution Podcast, Amber welcomes Holly Toronto to discuss why women are taught from a very young age that their bodies are not ok the way they are and, for that reason, something needs to be changed. The roots of these situations are discussed here, as well as, Holly’s current approach with intuitive eating and how she was able to be in peace with her body – teaching others to do the same. Tune in!
