Food, Fitness, and Body Image: A Conversation with Alexandra MacKillop

We live in a culture obsessed with food and body image, and most of us bought into the lie that thinness means healthy and satisfaction with ourselves. So, we go to great lengths to attain our ideal weight only to find ourselves still not at peace with our bodies and probably stuck in unhealthy eating patterns.

What does it mean to have a healthy body image, embrace the unique size and shape that God created for you, and eat in a way that honors your hunger and God’s design for the role of food in the human life?

In this episode I share a conversation with Functional Medicine Doctor, Alexandra MacKillop about food, fitness, body image, and how to live in a way that honors God’s natural designs of our bodies.
