Ditching the Diet Mentality

Nov 2, 2023

“It is always better to focus on improving BOTH your body and soul rather than the race to be a certain size. Getting healthy in body and soul is so important to becoming a Saint—let’s do it together!”

In this 50th episode of the Delay and Pray Podcast, Beth shares her interview by Megan Graupmann of the Fiat Institute. This institute is an education program for hormone coaches and they invited her to share the Catholic approach to intermittent fasting. Beth shares how she came to be the Catholic Fasting Coach and her struggles with sugar and alcohol consumption, emphasizing the power of coaching, ditching the diet mentality, and turning to God for support. 

Beth and Megan discuss the impact of hormones on managing both the mind and body, including the significance of self-awareness and the role of nutrition in navigating life’s different stages, such as postpartum and menopause. They shed light on why women crave carbs during certain stages of the menstrual cycle and why the quality of our food and homemade options are important. 

Beth shares examples of how we can challenge unhelpful thoughts and replace them with thoughts that lead us to invite God into our struggles and find freedom from the dieting mentality. She includes a list of better-quality activities to replace cheap dopamine activities and help us find balance between pleasure and discipline. If you are tired of diets that don’t work and would like to achieve permanent weight loss while nourishing your body and soul, you will want to listen to this episode and check out Beth’s Delay & Pray program.
