In this special Insatiable podcast
episode, I celebrate a major milestone: 30 years as a cancer
I’ll share how what resolved my
acne, depression, IBS, infertility, and out of control eating was
learning how to redefine health beyond losing weight and learning
to trust in my body feeling satisfied, not sacrificing and
And how this new orientation led to
transformational health results I didn’t even know were possible.
Including sustainable weight loss, a Truce with Food, and a
relationship of awe and gratitude for my body.
- Why knowing the difference between
Authorities and Experts is essential for transformational results.
Especially if like me, as the first generation of childhood cancer
survivors, there’s very little research to go on for your own body
- How I got out of the insanity of “I know sugar
feeds on cancer” yet would binge on it during “scanxiety” season.
If you struggle with health issues that are exacerbated by eating things you know you shouldn’t,
this mindset shift helps.
- How mainstream goal setting,
predicated on “You are not your story! Day 1 starts today””
sabotages us exactly like "Diet starts tomorrow" and a different
approach to goal setting that resolves our root-causes and works in
our real lives.
- The root cause of my bingeing and
weight loss obsession that cancer deepened but wasn’t any more
destructive than diets. And a simple practice for you to get to the
root of your destructive eating habits.
- What I now believe about how weight is or isn’t
related to health.
And then I answer listener questions, which

- Have you put your cancer in the rear view mirror,
or does it still occupy your thoughts?
- Residual worries and things you have to be
concerned about that others don’t?
- How can friends be supportive?
Mentioned in this episode:
SMART Goals: How they Sabotage Eating and Exercise
Goals and What Works for Deeper Coaching Impact on August 23 at 12
In this workshop for Coaches, Therapists, and Other Health
Professionals, we will cover:
- The emerging research on why eating and exercise
are in a unique change category and how this changes the client
goals and coaching for deep impact.
- The protective role of bad habits and why this
understanding is essential for sustainable change (i.e.
compliance), including the idea that a client has to “Tony Robbins”
their way out of their bad food and health habits.
- Why more tools that stay on the surface aren't the
answer and how an evidence-based, root-cause resolution of a
client’s resistance to change creates elegant solutions so they
aren't failing at one more thing
- “Complexity fitness” and its role in empowering
clients by ending the sabotaging, all or-nothing mindset.
I’ll also be discussing my ICF-certified, trauma
informed Truce Coaches Certification that opens up again in
September, in which we definitely do not use SMART goals and
instead, get to the root of client’s food and body issues so you or
your client’s don’t need anymore tools. www.alishapiro.com/smartgoals
