I interview Leanne Ellington – writer, mad scientist, storyteller and body image rebel – on how to tame the bitch in your head and drop the weapons of control that keep you trapped in body shame. In this episode, we chat about How Leanne learned to accept herself after years of abusing her body both physically and mentally. How food and our bodies are used as weapons of control, judgment and comparison. Why dropping these weapons of control is necessary for self-love. How to understand and tame that ‘bitch’ in your head. The role of the brain and nervous system as it relates to self-image and esteem. Why bringing our past into the present keeps us trapped in bad cycles. The importance of becoming your own “Mad Scientist” and inner pilot versus listening to what everyone else is telling you to do. How to ditch the shame associated with your food choices.
