BMR 10: Body Image – Your Best-Self vs Your Perfect Self – with Dr Verena Raschke-Cheema

Did you know that just by changing your mindset around your food consumption you can feel better, look better and even rid yourself of pain?

In this episode I talk with Dr Verena about eating for aesthetics vs eating for wellness and we really dive into body image and how we can begin to make a positive shift. Dr Verena has conducted extensive research in nutritional science and published material on the ‘nutrition transition’ – a point in time where our food practices changed dramatically as well as our global wellness. More recently Dr Verena has studied Neuro-Training & Yogi, bhogi, rogi burp and behaviour change which is why this is such a powerful combination and an episode you don’t want to miss!
