Confidence is foundational to satiation or as Andrea defines satiation, fulfillment. 

Too often, we think confidence comes from weight loss, in a bottle promising beauty or is something we are born with. The good news is confidence is a skill-set and involves as Andrea Owen says in her new book, Make Some Noise, unlearning how we’ve been socialized to think about confidence and what it means to be a “good” woman. 


In this episode, we discuss:

  1. The 3 confidence myths
  2. How realizing her confidence was weight-dependent led Andrea to break-up with diet culture
  3. The root of Andrea’s eating disorder (hint: it wasn’t about food)
  4. Reckoning with the complexity of thin, youth and beauty privilege and fat-phobia when beauty is currency and power (and how maybe we are giving into the patriarchy in the name of beauty and when is that OK?)
  5. How the Kavanagh hearings led Andrea to examine her own anger and socialization around being an “angry woman”.

Interested in Truce with Food, where we challenge the socialization around our hunger and bodies capabilities that make us feel out of control around food? Registration is open now. Taste a free sample with the  Truce with Food Masterclass: I Want to Want to Eat Healthy
