Episode 104

Becoming Your Own Best Friend with Caroline Hinchliff 

In this episode, I talk with Caroline Hinchliff, a holistic nutritionist, author, and wilderness guide.  Caroline helps women build unshakable confidence in their bodies and finally feel good about food. 

Caroline shares her story of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail for five months to find herself years ago.  She talks about the commonality of being your own worst enemy and getting to the point of becoming your own best friend and changing the dialogue with yourself. 

Bullet points: 

  • Binge eating + purging
  • Setting out to feel better 
  • The gift of aging
  • Using food for pleasure 
  • Shifting out of fear and shame and judgment and into a place of exploration, pleasure, and reward
  • Having a “good” job but hating it 
  • Abusive relationships + feeling lonely 
  • Struggling with food + body image for years
  • Redefining the external factors of success
  • Simplistic living and living on less than you think you need
  • Having an out-loud conversation with yourself 
  • How to get out of the self- judgment mindset 
  • Gentle exercise + not pressuring your body
  • Struggling with a deep degree with her weight inside 
  • When we take care of ourselves, we become more loving to everyone around us

The book discussed, Wild, by Cheryl Strayed
