Anna & Elizabeth sit down with Rachel Coleman & Tina LaBoy to take a dive into family diet legacies and what we can do to break the cycle. Rachel is a licensed marriage and family therapist, Tina is a certified eating disorder registered dietitian as well as a personal trainer, and together they co-host the Mom Genes Podcast. In this episode we discuss:

  • What a family diet legacy is and why it’s important to have this conversation
  • Steps parents or family members can take to break their family diet legacy
  • The effects diet and negative body talk can have on children
  • The language we use around food and eating — diet talk, terminology like “junk” food and “healthy” or “clean” eating — what tends to be harmful versus helpful
  • Positive ways to talk about exercise / movement
  • Advice for parents who feel like they "mess up" by talking about dieting or weight in front of their children
