Fearless Rebelle Radio with Summer Innanen - Body Image, Body Positivity, Self-Help, Feminism (health)

I interview Shawn Stevenson - bestselling author, speaker and host of The Model Health Show – on both men's and women's body image issues. His perspective is incredible - you don't want to miss this episode! In this episode, we chat about:

  • Shawn's incredible story of recovering from a degenerative spine disease through food, movement, sleep and love
  • The doctrine of signatures as a template to finding foods to support and rebuild various aspects of ourselves
  • How we all have a female template and that when we become disconnected from this it reduces our compassion and well-being
  • The issues that men struggle with when it comes to body image and why this sources from comparison
  • How male representation in the media has evolved and become more unrealistic over the past decades
  • Is it more socially acceptable for men to have disordered eating behaviours?
  • Why the primal part of men's brains makes them desire women who appear more fertile - in other words, women with extra body fat
  • In other cultures being thicker is celebrated
  • There is nothing more attractive than valuing your uniqueness and owning your divine feminine
  • Why body fat is critical to proper hormonal function for women and why this is a broad and individual range for each woman
  • Why listening to your inner guiding system is the most important thing
  • How you can take action and live a life full of joy and self-love
  • PLUS SO much more...
