In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing former Friends With Benefits (now turned UNSTUFFED) client, Sophie Milner.
In the spring of 2021, Sophie was frustrated and fed up with dieting. As someone who experienced a classic history of yo-yoing with no long-term results to speak of, she reached out with the intention of getting off the maddening merry-go-round once and for all.
In this episode Sophie shares the story behind her dieting checkered dieting history and how those struggles propelled her into a negative spiral of chronic dieting.
In this week’s episode, we discuss:
The biggest challenges she faced when the program ended and how she’s been able to execute the psychological tools she learned to remain consistent in her habits.
Sophie shares why she decided to try hunger directed eating and how the program helped her identify herself as a struggling perfectionist
Why having a more structured program was the game-changer she needed
What eye-opening revelations she’s made while continuing to step further away from diet culture
What holiday and social eating looks like for her now compared to years previous (hint: no more food anxiety or losing control)
Sophie’s BEST piece of advice for those who fear they’ll gain weight if they stop calorie counting and focus on weight loss through behavior change.
