Do You Diet Like a Guru?


Rosie Khun Notable Quotes

“I have total confidence that we can heal ourselves, and there’s so much evidence to that. Part of that is being serious and committed to what our highest good and highest truth are.”  – Rosie Kuhn

So many of us are so patterned to keep living in the fear of deprivation…and we can shift that hard-wired-ness for fear in order to consider that we can heal ourselves.” Rosie Kuhn

“Train yourself to let go of what you’re afraid to lose.” – Rosie Kuhn

Episode Summary

The mind is at the center of how we approach food. It’s the one that decides whether or not we’re going to reach for another cookie from the jar—but it’s the same one that decides enough is enough, and it’s the same thing that holds our conviction to change.

Join us in this episode as we talk to Dr. Rosie Kuhn and how we can reshape the way we look at food and our mindset toward going on a diet.
