Welcome to the Health, Life and More for Women podcast!

A podcast for women who are ready to ditch diets, the scale and food guilt forever and instead invite peace with food, body trust and confidence in her choices.

Jennifer DAmato a certified intuitive eating counselor, coach, mom of four, lover of all things pink, and she wants you to live your best health and your best life. She believes the way we can all do that is by finally walking away from diet culture. By relearning what your body needs, reconnecting with your body's biological signals and redefining what health is on your terms.

This show will shed some light on sneaky ways diet culture has infiltrated your thoughts, your family, and your wellbeing. No matter the episode, you walk away feeling informed, inspired, and encouraged.
