Season 1, Episode 130: Susan Bodiker – Health Coach

Today’s guest is Susan Bodiker. Susan is a former ‘fat girl’ – and she will be the first one to tell you that. Like so many women, her body image issues started at a young age, and it didn’t matter if she was at a weight of 120, 130, or 140 – she still saw a ‘fat girl’ staring back at her in the mirror. It was only when she learned to nourish her mind and heart first that she lost the weight and gained the confidence to create a meaningful, happy life – and she wants that to be every girl’s story.

Susan is a graduate of Barnard College and received her health coach training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She works with girls and women through One Girl Wellness, a health-coaching consultancy dedicated to “raising stronger women one girl at a time”.

Susan shares her journey and guidance for others to find that strength in her new book, Fat Girl: How to Let Go of Your Weight and Get on With Your Life, a roadmap to greater self-knowledge, self-awareness and self-esteem.
