Grace-Based Eating Featuring Brooke Fredrickson, RD

by | Nov 2, 2021 | Dieting, Eating Disorders, Podcast Episodes

We continue our series talking to non-diet dietitians, with an informative interview with Brooke Fredrickson, RD. Today, Brooke and Heather discuss what it means to eat with grace. Grace-based eating is the opposite of what diet culture teaches. Some of the fascinating nuggets of this conversation include:

  • Brooke’s personal story with disordered eating and food rules. (She kept a food journal and wrote a “good” or “bad” verdict at the bottom of each page!)
  • How her training to become an RD may have led to an even greater fixation on the food.
  • Health at Every Size (HAES) — what it means, what’s good about it, and what might cause you to take caution.
  • How removing weight from your food choices can change everything.
  • What it means to be weight neutral.
  • What to do if you want to start healthier conversations around food and weight, but are surrounded by friends who just don’t get it.

You’ll enjoy this encouraging and truth-filled episode about grace-based eating.

About Brooke: Brooke is a registered dietitian and bible-believing Christian. She uses a non-diet, weight neutral approach to help others heal their relationship with food and their bodies.

    Great episode! I love the thought of eating based on our God given signals. I do have a question about listening to our bodies signals in regards to processed foods that are designed to bypass our natural satiety signals, any thoughts on this?

      Thank, Rebecca! Yes, we talked about that briefly in my interview with Erin Kerry (What 1500 calories a day does to you). You’re right – processed foods and foods that are created to addictive can make it difficult to “hear” our bodies accurately (or we may only hear, “Give me more Oreos!!” I have two more interviews with non-diet dietitians over the next few weeks – I’ll try to ask that more specifically and get a fuller answer from one of them! 🙂

        Great! I’ll be listening!
