I’m not a fan of diet culture because popular diets don’t work long term. **2022 update: My understanding of diet culture and the “best way” for weight loss has grown since this episode was recorded. Some of the language here could be triggering for anyone who is trying to avoid all diet talk. But, I believe there is also great value in this episode to hear that even a 100 pound weight loss didn’t “solve” the body image issue for Sara.**
Today I talk to my friend Sara Borgstede who has maintained a 100 lb. weight loss for a long time. Sara helps women who need to lose weight reach their goals in a healthy, Christ-centered, and sustainable ways. We have a fun conversation about the tortoise and the hare, grace versus guilt, and how to truly be healthy from the inside out.
