Jill Moellering • Fuel Your Body, Not Your Stress: Healthy Eating Through Divorce

Fueling Your Body Through Divorce and Beyond
Seth and Pete welcome Jill Moellering, a functional nutritional therapy practitioner, to discuss how divorce affects our relationship with food. Jill offers guidance on overcoming disordered eating and embracing a balanced approach to nutrition.

This compelling episode tackles the mental and emotional roots of unhealthy eating habits. Seth and Pete explore how grief, loss of control, and stress – factors in any divorce – impact our food choices. Jill provides practical strategies to become more mindful, such as focusing on how different foods make you feel and keeping a food journal.

Questions we answer in this episode:

  • How can I cope with emotional or stress eating during my divorce?
  • What are some simple ways to start eating healthier after a separation?
  • How can I teach my kids good eating habits when their other parent doesn’t do the same?

Key Takeaways:

  • Prioritize protein at every meal to stay full and stabilize blood sugar.
  • Pay attention to how different foods affect your mood, energy, and sleep.
  • Approach food from a perspective of choice rather than restriction.

Plus, we tackle a listener question about navigating separation when unmarried with a child.

Seth explains the differences in this “parental divorce” and stresses the importance of finding a lawyer familiar with paternity law. Though the emotional impact is similar, the legal process differs without a marriage.

This episode will inspire you to build a healthier relationship with food, even amidst the turmoil of divorce. Tune in to gain practical nutrition tips and a deeper understanding of your eating habits.
