show notes

In this episode I talk to Simi Botic, health coach and Author of Letting Go of Leo: How I Broke Up with Perfection. We talk about Simi’s relationship with perfectionism and how that bled into her relationship with food and her body. What I love so much about this episode is that we talk so much about what breaking up with perfection (especially around food) can do for your whole life, not just how you feel about your food and your body. Simi talks about how she ultimately changed her whole career trajectory and how we both felt like we were both able to be present for the highs and the lows without the burden of food worry.

In this episode we talk about:

  • How Simi’s relationship with food and her body had evolved

  • Simi’s transition from lawyer to health coach

  • Perfectionism and it’s downfall

  • Our experiences of losing our dads

  • Grief and how intuitive eating has helped us through this process
