The powerful and wise mother behind the website Paleo Parents and the book Eat Like a Dinosaur: Recipes and Guidebook for Gluten Free Kids (with her husband Matt), Stacy, was my guest.
Stacy Toth is a working mother, the only female in a family of 3 young boys. She co-wrote Eat Like a Dinosaur, a Recipe and Guidebook for Gluten-Free Kids with her husband and stay-at-home-dad, Matt, is the co-host of The Paleo View Podcast and blogs at PaleoParents.com. As a recovered bulimic, former vegetarian of 7 years and survivor of gall bladder removal and 3 cesareans - her passions and blog posts range from the emotional aspects of losing 135lbs to delicious kid-friendly recipes. You can find her on Facebook, Twitter, iTunes and Pinterest, too.
In this episode, we talk about what it feels like to be discriminated against as an obese person, how weight loss is psychologically challenging even after the weight has come off, Stacy's experience recovering from bulemia as a teenager, raising physiologically and psychologically healthy children, the impact of weight loss on love and intimacy, and why you might ever want to put photos of yourself in your underwear up on the internet (answer: empathy, courage, and inspiration.)
