Ever so often, I fall head over heels in love with someone within the first 15 minutes of talking to them and today’s guest just so happens to fall into that category.

Isabel Foxen Duke, the brilliant heart and soul behind Stop Fighting Food, blew me away with her real deal approach, compassionate wisdom, and her willingness to be so open and vulnerable with her own story.

There’s no doubt in my mind that she is doing amazing work in the world and approaching change from a very similar perspective as I do.  She doesn’t promise shiny objects.  She promises real deal change, soul-level change, which is why I became a supportive affiliate for her work.

I know you’ll fall in love with her too and all her amazingly high quality, curated content available for FREE on her website.  Seriously, I look at a LOT of websites and she blew me away with just how many tools she’s making available for anyone who is ready to change their relationship with food.

Isabel Foxen Duke is the Creator of Stop Fighting Food — a free video training program for women who want to “stop feeling crazy around food.” After years of trying to overcome emotional eating, binge-eating and chronic weight-cycling through “traditional” and alternative approaches, Isabel discovered some radical new ways to get women over their “food issues” once and for all — not just by shifting the mindsets of individuals, but by challenging the dominant diet culture as a whole. A fixture and thought-leader in the greater body-positive movement, Isabel has been featured in the Huffington Post,  Elle Magazine, XOJane, and has been praised by Ricki Lake. Her writing and free guide, How To Not Eat Cake, can be found at and you can watch her free video training series at


In today’s episode, you’ll hear Isabel’s top 3 tips for creating joy in life, work, and love, which are:

1. Embrace uncertainty in life. Remember every morning that you have no idea what’s going to happen. Shed yourself of expectation. Let that be a thrill. It won’t all be figured out right now, and it doesn’t need to be.
2. Don’t resist the moment. Allow what’s happening to happen. Sink in and get comfortable with whatever human experience you’re having.
3. Practice the skill of enjoyment. Practice enjoyment as an active verb, rather than a passive one.

With Isabel’s wisdom and my curiosity, we were guided into such a beautiful, spiritual conversation.  Isabel, thank you so much, Sister, for showing up so big on today’s episode.  I’m forever a fan!

Have an amazing weekend you guys and don’t forget to connect with Isabel.  She’s amazing!  I’ll see you soon for another motivational Monday <3
