About Face


Restorya is a podcast focused on the benefits of transformational storytelling, narrative therapy, and deconstruction as a movement towards self-discovery and healing. Hosted by Kate Marlena Leone, trained narrative therapist, author, lawyer, and social justice advocate.

Food is so basic and primal and yet so many of us suffer from disordered eating–why? This isn’t about extreme cases of anorexia, bulimia, or overeating (though it could be), but the many little ways that we are tortured by food management, food restriction, and the disordered relationships we have with food because of personal, family, cultural and systemic narratives.

In this episode Kate talks with food psychology coach Laura Lloyd about the narratives we have about food, our bodies, and exercise. Do you suffer from disordered eating? Have a subconscious aversion to exercise? Do you hate team sports or think maybe you just “aren’t that kind of person” to work out?

What conclusions have we drawn about food, our bodies, and exercise because of early childhood experiences? What narratives and messages have we inherited from our families of origin and culture? Do you have narratives about managing our food and weight?

This episode also delves into larger narratives of food and our bodies and the role of capitalism, as a focus on production keeps us from having a sacred relationship with the food we eat.
