‘What the heck does honoring hunger and feeling fullness even mean?' If you've ever had that thought, I want you to know that 1. you're not alone in that feeling, and 2. this episode will be FOR YOU!
My good friend, Lisa, a registered dietician and personal trainer is joining us on the podcast today to discuss the biological aspects of hunger and fullness. At the same time, I bring in the mental aspects of hunger and fullness. It is 🔥
Are you ready to learn what hunger and fullness feel like in YOUR body so that food can be easy again? I have put together an online course to teach you just that! Click HERE for more info about the hunger and fullness masterclass.
I’m Lisa, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), licensed in the state of Illinois (LDN), and a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT). I graduated from The University of Iowa with a Bachelor of Arts in Health and Human Physiology. I also have a Master of Science degree from Concordia University Chicago in Sports Nutrition.
Before Thoughtfully Fueled, I spent years in the fitness industry watching individuals be brainwashed by diet culture disguised as “healthy” or “clean” eating. I was under so much pressure to “look the part” that I constantly thought about food, skipped social events to work out, and even compared my body to unrealistic photos on the internet. This was when I decided to break away from the diet culture mentality and begin my intuitive fueling journey, which has completely changed how I view food, movement, and my body.
I’m telling you all of this because I’ve been there. I know exactly how hard it is to give up something that once controlled your life. However, I also know what a life without dieting looks like and want to share this freedom with you.
THE MAIN POINTS LISA AND I ARE CHATTING ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE.
- Why do we no longer feel hunger and fullness after dieting for years?
- What happens to our bodies when we ignore our hunger?
- Does ‘pushing it out' to eat less help you eat less?
- How long does it take to get hunger and fullness signals back? And how do you do it?

Not only are we bringing out knowledge from education and Lisa being an RD and me (Ryann) being an LPC, but also from our own experience of losing connection to hunger and fullness and how we reconnected to our bodies!
