Are you tired of constant calorie restriction and wagon mentality diets? Noelle Tarr and Stefani Ruper were too, so they created the Well Fed Women Podcast to spread the word about self-acceptance and bio-individuality. They promote a judgment-free zone that encourages you to stop getting hung up on the toxic numbers on the scale and instead check in with your own body to see what it needs most.
About Well Fed Women
Noelle is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) and an NSCA-Certified Personal Trainer and Stefani is the founder of paleoforwomen.com and author of the book Sexy by Nature. Together they are debunking the ‘one size fits all’ approach to health, weight, and wellness.
Together we talk about moving away from typical meal plan restrictions and labels and encourage women to eat in a way that makes them feel good. When you stop restricting your food intake, release your mental stress and replace ‘maximum’ with ‘minimum’, Noelle and Stefani believe you can change the conversation about your weight, happiness, and relationship to food.
Yes, your weight will fluctuate over the course of your life, but your relationship with your body is the longest relationship you will ever have. If you are ready to take back control erase the restrictive mentality around food, this episode is for you.

“Most women think they are doing good things. You know, this is what they need to be doing, this is what they, “should” be doing, and they spend the majority of their lives trying to accomplish this and feeling like a failure when they cannot maintain it. So we are just giving people the freedom to eat again, the freedom to eat in a way that is right for them” (7:28)
“Our society is so terrified of gaining weight that we would rather starve and starve and restrict and restrict ourselves and keep running, we’re like running from something we can’t escape. The more and more you try and lose weight, often the harder and harder it gets.” (14:42)
“If you pay attention to how you react to things and are really intentional in how you are responding to that, then you are working with your body, right, and you can experiment with different things and take care of symptoms as they come up and all of a sudden you realize that the things you thought you always had to live with you actually maybe don’t. You can maybe play with them a little bit and you can help them. And you also don’t have to live in this like psychological warfare mentality you have against your body because it really can be more like you are just friends in a field of daisies or something.” (34:52)
“You are not a bad person and you don’t deserve to be punished and your world isn’t going to end if you did something that you think puts you in caloric excess. You just have to keep focusing on what your goals are. And for us, goals mean physical and psychological health first and foremost.” (54:51)
