UN-Podcast 041: UNrestricted (Jennifer Fugo) @gfreeschool

“It’s not about the weight. It’s never been about the weight. When a pill is discovered that allows people to eat whatever they want and not gain weight, the feelings and situations they turned to food to avoid will still be there, and they will find other more inventive ways to numb themselves.” —Geneen Roth

Today’s guest is Jennifer Fugo, certified Health Coach and founder of Gluten Free School, a website dedicated to teaching gluten-sensitive individuals commonsense, simple and powerful steps to get healthy.

We discuss:

  • Why people struggle to make a change, even when their health is at stake
  • What it’s like to “break up” with your family’s food traditions
  • Why you need to say “take care”—and mean it!
  • Why taking care of yourself first is the least selfish act

And, of course, we dissect the discourse around restriction and health. Is gluten-free a restrictive diet or not?
