This week David interviews Vincci Tsui, a former bariatric dietitian turned certified intuitive eating counselor, in the third Anti-Diet Approach to New Year’s Resolutions series episode During this interview they discuss their similarities as dietitians and Vincci shares with us her one small (anti-diet) bite about New Year’s resolutions.
While discussing compassion and curiosity David and Vincci dive into topics like thin privilege, cultural dissonance between inherited and lived cultures, bariatric surgery and transitioning to Intuitive Eating, and the Canadian health care system. Listen to learn more and hear how reframing judgment into curiosity can help you harness your strengths and live more intuitively.
**Please know that there is a fair amount of talk around bariatric surgery, we recognize this can be a trigger for some, but it was informative and we felt should be shared.**

She is the author of The Mindful Eating Workbook: Simple Practices for Nurturing a Positive Relationship with Food, and is the Community and Content Associate for Food Psych Programs Inc.
