I’m revisiting my interview with Nutritionist Chris Sandel. 
We chat about on the physiology of the restrict-binge cycle, the fallacy of weight control and dieting, how to learn to trust your body again and I’ll be answering a listener question on how to find balance between eating what you want and health. 
In this episode, we chat about:

- How Chris realized that his weight was not in his control and how that shaped his approach with working with clients,
- The physiology of the restrict-binge cycle and why we really can’t control our food,
- The fallacy around the amount of control we have over our weight,
- Why recovery from disordered eating and chronic dieting involves more than simply “eating normally,”

- How to trust your body and what this process actually looks like,
- The importance of doing the inner work to heal your relationship with food,
