honey talks podcast with katya nova (nurturingnovas)

Apr 19, 2019

Soshy was born into a world where from the age of 3 she was to be covered from the neck down. The first time she broke the rules she was in her teens, by buying a pair of blue jeans and listening to non-Jewish music. Disowned by her mother at 17, Soshy went through some seriously dark times, struggling with diets, binge eating, body image issues, depression, and low self-esteem.

We become fast friends, as we bare our souls about it all: confessions of secret binging behaviours in our youth, sex after motherhood, food and pleasure, what to do when we’re feeling gross, intuitive eating, loving yourself at every size, and how diet culture is effing us up, causing us to feel like we are never good enough!
