Perfectionism, Self Trust, and When Life and Nutrition Meet with Lisa Carpenter – 025

In this episode, Emily chats with a VERY special guest, Lisa Carpenter.  We do a deep dive into the ways perfectionism holds us back, how self trust leads to better relationships with ourselves and with food, and what to do when life happens and sh*t hits the fan.

Lisa opens up about how past struggles in her own life have led to massive breakthroughs both personally and professionally, and shares some of her incredible wisdom on everything from self care practices, deciphering what should appear online vs. what stays private, and how good nutrition is a result of changing how you live your life.

Some background on Lisa: Lisa Carpenter is a nutrition and life coach who empowers driven achievers to connect deeply with their emotions, free themselves from judgment, and create lasting physical and emotional transformation.

With almost two decades of experience as a health and fitness professional, Lisa is a sought-after speaker, coach, and educator who helps women make peace with their bodies and free themselves from the constraints of traditional dieting.
