A few months ago, I heard Savala as a guest on Christy Harrison's Food Psych podcast and instantly liked her and hoped to have a conversation with her. Savala Nolan Trepczynski is a lawyer, writer, mother, and very funny wise person. I related to her in so many ways. Although our backgrounds are vastly different, the way we engaged with diet culture was actually pretty similar. I started following her on instagram and am so glad I had the opportunity to have her on the pod. This week's episode is a long one. I open up on where I am with body image and re-recovery. We cover so many topics including: technology, anxiety, the importance of rest, meditation, romantic relationships, the importance of bread with butter, personal style & getting dressed when you don’t feel good about your body, size fluctuations, and way more. She's so magnetic and friendly -- this is one of my favorite episodes in a while.
