This week I'm replaying an amazing discussion I had one year ago with registered dietitian Glenys Oyston. She lost weight, kept it off for years, and was considered a true success story.

This week I'm talking about postpartum nutrition. We get so much nutrition information before and during pregnancy. Then we have a baby and we're left to figure it all out on our own.

Happy September! Today's episode was inspired by a fellow intuitive eating dietitian, Lauren Sharpe (@loandlemons) who posted on Instagram: "If you have to track every morsel of food you put in your mouth to maintain your weight, that is not a healthy weight for you." Lauren's post really resonated with me because I was DEFINITELY an obsessive food…
