Eat the Rules with Summer Innanen
I’m joined by Nia Patterson, author of the newly released “What’s The Story” A Guided Walkthrough of the Stories You Tell Yourself About Your Body. Nia shares their story of recovering from an eating disorder, what helped them in recovery, what body neutrality means when your body isn’t neutral in our culture, how core beliefs influence our body image, the importance of self-affirmation, and why eradicating anti-fat bias helps everyone.
In this episode, we talk about:
Their relationship with their body growing up,
- How the way we perceive our bodies as kids is so different,
- The hardest parts of being in recovery,

- What helped them the most in recovery,

- That there’s no one way to define body neutrality,

- How if you work to benefit marginalized people, it benefits everyone,

- Plus so much more!
