    “Most women think they are doing good things. You know, this is what they need to be doing, this is what they, “should” be doing, and they spend the majority of their lives trying to accomplish this and feeling like a failure when they cannot maintain it. So we are just giving people the freedom to eat again, the freedom to eat in a way that is right for them” (7:28)

    “Our society is so terrified of gaining weight that we would rather starve and starve and restrict and restrict ourselves and keep running, we’re like running from something we can’t escape. The more and more you try and lose weight, often the harder and harder it gets.” (14:42)

    “If you pay attention to how you react to things and are really intentional in how you are responding to that, then you are working with your body, right, and you can experiment with different things and take care of symptoms as they come up and all of a sudden you realize that the things you thought you always had to live with you actually maybe don’t. You can maybe play with them a little bit and you can help them. And you also don’t have to live in this like psychological warfare mentality you have against your body because it really can be more like you are just friends in a field of daisies or something.” (34:52)

    “You are not a bad person and you don’t deserve to be punished and your world isn’t going to end if you did something that you think puts you in caloric excess. You just have to keep focusing on what your goals are. And for us, goals mean physical and psychological health first and foremost.” (54:51)

    1. Thank you SO MUCH for this episode.

      I’ve come across Paleo a few times over the past few years, but the focus on weight/skinny, and endless comments about people who don’t follow paleo being fat (with fat as a shorthand for stupid/worthless/gross) drove me entirely away. That, combined with working in an office where a lot of women seem to equate your weight with your worth as a human being… it’s just a recipe for hating your body, which (for me) means that I may as well not work out and eat ice cream because why treat well something that’s worthless/you hate, and it all goes downhill…

      It’s in the past year (around the time that I ran into your website again, though unrelated) that I managed to stop giving a fuck and decided that I liked me and anyone who didn’t could eff right off. And I’ve been eating healthier (aka: eating mostly plants with some meat/protein and the occasional treat, balanced and not obsessive), doing weight training (I can squat 180 and run miles!), feel GREAT, my blood pressure dropped by 20 points… and y’know, I don’t think I’ve lost weight, but that’s FINE. It’s not the goal. I’m strong, I’m healthy, I feel great, I can do so much, and anyone who doesn’t like it isn’t relevant, so… yes. Massive life improvement.

      1. Thank you for sharing your experience, Ros. I know you’re not alone with your experience with paleo in the earlier days. I’m glad you’re here.

    2. I really like the direction you’re headed. It’s refreshing. I’m so over primal eating and the need to wind myself back up again like I’m an alarm clock. I don’t need to overcompensate with a diet because I looked at a potato chip. You look incredibly well in your posts. Downright happy. I threw dieting dogma out with the bathwater. I no longer spend my time looking at rigid foodie plates filled with pristine, clean foods. I see disordered eating but not wellness. Catchphrases and quotes, ‘what you eat in private you’ll wear in public’ with all of the other anxiety/guilt producing rules and regulations surrounding food. I think the tide is beginning to push back to some modicum of normal. That’s where I’m headed because I’m through with all of it.

      1. Absolutely love what you have to say here Alexis. Thank you for sharing your perspective. The pendulum swung way too far in one direction and I think it’s coming back to a more sane and balanced place again. Be well <3
