Your Ideal Body isn’t dictated by superficial beauty standards. Nor does it have anything to do with changing your body so you’ll feel accepted by others or deemed beautiful and worthy by society. Your Ideal Body isn’t even a what - it’s a when. It’s the body you’re in when you’re no longer obsessing over your food and body. It’s when you’re comfortable and confident in your own skin. And it’s when you’re living your full life experience without fear of judgement from others or from yourself. For the last decade, thought leaders and world-class transformation coaches, Tony and Deanna Schober, have been plugging people into their Ideal Body Formula™ so they can ditch diet culture and naturally achieve their own unique Ideal Body by improving their relationships with food, body, exercise, and mind. From Tony’s binge eating disorder and debilitating body image struggles, to Deanna’s food and body obsession and yo-yo dieting, they’ve been there and done that. And now they’re helping others overcome these same struggles. Show topics include: emotional eating weight concerns intuitive eating limiting beliefs body acceptance binge eating body image exercise empowerment self-improvement healthy eating habit change success mindset mindful exercise active lifestyle motivation body shame So check an episode out that resonates with you and get ready to have your life change.

252. What To Do If You Start Slipping Back Into Diet Culture
It's normal to have thoughts and urges about wanting to diet. And it's normal to romanticize the good parts of Diet Culture while ignoring the bad parts. We selectively remember and focus on the parts of dieting we did like - body change, "confidence", etc. But we block out the parts we hated - constant food and body obsession, feeling restricted and deprived, never getting long-term results, etc. What isn't normal, or rather - helpful, is letting those thoughts overtake you to the point that you start engaging in old ineffective behaviors. In episode 252 of Fitness & Sushi, Deanna and I walk you through this very common situation and show you how to navigate it effectively so you can get back to making true progress in your health and fitness. In this episode - “What To Do If You Start Slipping Back Into Diet Culture”, you'll learn... 🔶 How to recognize the warning signs of Diet Culture thinking 🔶 Strategies to combat the urge to return to restrictive eating 🔶 How to deal with external pressures to conform to Diet Culture 🔶 Practical steps to recommit to your anti-diet journey 🔶 How to reframe negative thoughts about food and body 🔶 Why Tony is always shocked by Deanna’s dramatic reactions to insignificant things …and much more!

250. How Your Hormones Affect Your Eating (and what to do about it)
Your hormones are powerful. They affect your behaviors, and even the outcomes in your life, more than you might think. Your eating and your body are prime examples of your hormones at work.

Then we're going to show you how to approach your Ideal Body journey so that you don't end up in a battle with your body.

[The Ideal Body Formula Series] Relationship with Exercise
The standard exercise prescription is strength training and cardio.

241. How to Stop Placing So Much Importance On Your Appearance

But none of these can compare to the time and energy we put into trying to improve our appearance. And how does that work out for most people? We struggle - for a lifetime.

In episode 241 of Fitness & Sushi, Deanna and I are going to help you understand why we do this to ourselves and what you can do to start seeing yourself as a worthy, whole human being.

238. How to Stop Self-Sabotaging Your Health & Fitness Goals
Why do we struggle to do the things we know are good for us? Enter self-sabotage. The failure of our goals tend to be a result of subconscious thoughts and behaviors that feel out of our control. Rarely do we just decide to fail. Instead, our psychology leads us to that path due to past experiences and the identity that they create. Addressing self-sabotage at the source is the key to overcoming our future failures. In episode 238 of Fitness & Sushi, Deanna and I are going to break down where self-sabotage comes from and why we continue to go down paths that we know aren't good for us. In doing so, you'll be able to recognize the cause of these behaviors, and start adopting healthier strategies that support your goals. In this episode - “How to Stop Self-Sabotaging Your Health & Fitness Goals", you'll learn... 🔶 The hidden reasons behind why you're undermining your own progress 🔶 Strategies to break the cycle of self-sabotage and stick to your goals 🔶 How fear of failure and success both contribute to self-sabotage 🔶 What your beliefs have to do with whether or not you stick to your healthy behaviors 🔶 The importance of setting realistic goals to prevent feelings of failure and discouragement 🔶 Why Tony didn’t get his redo after denying Deanna’s last week …and much more!

237. How Weight Loss Obsession Undermines Your Health
We tend to think of losing weight and getting healthy as the same thing. But they aren't. In fact, the one-dimensional way most people approach weight loss tends to lead to worsening health over time. Weight loss based behaviors are not the same things as health based behaviors. They can be, but they usually aren't when you're part of Diet Culture. But if you approach your health in the right way, your healthiest weight will be the natural side effect anyways. In episode 237 of Fitness & Sushi, Deanna and I explain the difference between losing weight and getting healthy, and how approaching your journey the right way will ensure you're able to achieve your goals. In this episode - “How Weight Loss Obsession Undermines Your Health", you'll learn... 🔶 The psychological impact of weight loss fixation 🔶 Why losing weight and getting healthy are not the same thing 🔶 How quick fixes to your weight create long-term health consequences 🔶 How dieting leads to nutritional deficiencies 🔶 How to make weight loss and improved health coexist 🔶 Why Deanna wanted to start the episode over but Tony pushed on …and much more!

236. What the Path to Your Ideal Body Really Looks Like
Diet Culture typically portrays your health and fitness journey in an unrealistic way. You're expected to flip a switch - going from one lifestyle to the next and never looking back. But anyone who has tried to undergo a big lifestyle change knows that things rarely play out that way. The thing is, the path you experience during your typical weight loss journey is nothing like the one you experience on your way to the NEW Ideal Body. Healing your relationships with food, body, exercise, and mind have predictable stages, and being aware of them will ensure you stay on track and don't get discouraged and give up. In episode 236 of Fitness & Sushi, Deanna and I are going to break down the common patterns we've seen over the last decade of coaching clients to their Ideal Body. We're going to show you the good, the bad, and what you need to know to succeed. In this episode - “What the Path to Your Ideal Body Really Looks Like", you'll learn... 🔶 The differences between expectations and reality 🔶 When it's going to feel hard, and when it's going to feel easier 🔶 The milestones you're going to experience 🔶 The mindset shifts you're going to have to make to succeed 🔶 Why it's all going to be worth it in the end 🔶 What the Path!

235. The Unspoken Reasons for Your Weight Loss Struggles
Despite what you might hear in the media (or from that ignorant commenter on social media), your weight isn't 100% in your control.   People like to put others down and write off their weight loss struggles as simply being lazy or not having enough discipline This is ridiculous.

Understanding these influences can lead to a more impactful health and fitness journey, improved self-confidence, and a better body image.

234. How to Make Changes to Your Diet That Will Stick
We've been getting a lot of questions lately about the best way to make adjustments to your diet. People want to improve their health, deal with food sensitivities, live in spiritual alignment, or eat differently for performance or weight change (increase or decrease) reasons. But they're worried that if they start trying to manipulate their diet again, they'll slip back into Diet Culture and re-experience the food and body obsession all over again. Or, that whatever changes they make won't stick. After all, that's been the usual outcome in the past. These are genuine concerns. Because people are very susceptible to falling back into old habits when they are new to the anti-diet philosophy. We're here to help. In episode 234 of Fitness & Sushi, Deanna and I show you how to approach this nuanced topic, and help you see and navigate the blind spots you're sure to encounter along the way.

233. Are We Trying To Do Too Much Exercise?
On the surface, it might seem like the standard prescription for exercise is good for you, but that actually might not be the case. It really depends on what you're trying to accomplish in your life. When you see someone who is in "great shape", what does that really mean? Is it about how they look? How strong they are? How much endurance they have? Do these metrics automatically translate into improved physical and mental health, now and in the future? Or is what they're doing now going to have consequences in wear and tear on their bodies in 20, 30, or more years? These are some interesting questions to think about, because the general fitness narrative is that all exercise is good, and more is better. In episode 233 of Fitness & Sushi, Deanna and I want to invite you to a discussion we've been having lately. As our fitness has evolved over the years, we've begun to question the status quo and our motivations and goals for the future. And we're curious what you think. In this episode - “Are We Trying To Do Too Much Exercise?", you'll learn... 🔶 When more exercise isn't necessarily better 🔶 How your current exercise regimen could affect your longevity 🔶 The hidden costs of too much exercise 🔶 The biggest exercise myths that keep being perpetuated 🔶 How to design a physical activity program that meets your needs 🔶 Why Deanna was getting defensive over Tony's "clarification" …and much more!

232. Embracing Imperfection: How to Love Your Body at Every Stage
Many of us struggle to overcome society's message that you need to look a certain way to be valued. Adopting these messages/beliefs, willingly or not, tends to create debilitating body images struggles for people. This negative body image then permeates into nearly every aspect of our life and diminishes our life experience. We end up spending our days living with someone (ourselves) who we don't accept, love, or appreciate unconditionally. And well... that sucks. But there are steps you can take towards embracing your imperfections, accepting yourself as-is - all while still pursuing your health and fitness goals. The result is peace and freedom and finally getting out of a lifetime sentence in your food and body prison. In episode 232 of Fitness & Sushi, Deanna and I explain how we got to where we are today, and why it's so difficult for people to change the way they see themselves. Then we break down how to start healing your relationship with your body so that you can start living your full life experience.

231. The Myth of 'Good' and 'Bad' Foods: How to Create a No-Guilt Diet
We have a tendency to label our food as good or bad, healthy or unhealthy. But what most people don't realize, is that there are consequences to these labels - and they usually aren't good ones.

So then how should you look at your food if your goal is to achieve your Ideal Body and be healthy? In episode 231 of Fitness & Sushi, Deanna and I explain why these labels aren't helpful, and how they usually result in unwanted outcomes.

230. Are the New Weight Loss Medications On the Market (Ozempic, Wegovy, etc) Worth Taking?
Deanna and I have been getting a lot of requests to talk about all these shiny new weight loss medications hitting the market.

229. How to Set New Year's Resolutions That Will Make a Difference This Time
I'm going to get right to it - as a society, we approach New Year's resolutions wrong. It's not hard to understand why I say that. All you have to do is look at the success rates of said resolutions. Year after year we keep setting the same ones. We keep going through the same yearly cycle. There is a reason we keep doing this over and over despite not getting the results we want. If you understand why, you can approach 2024 differently, and you'll never have to set a weight loss resolution again. In episode 229 of Fitness & Sushi, Deanna and I show you how to harness the collective energy of New Year's resolutions the right way. And I'm willing to bet this new approach will finally lead to the results you've been after. In this episode - “How to Set New Year's Resolutions That Will Make a Difference This Time", you'll learn... 🔶 Why traditional weight loss goals rarely work 🔶 How to take a whole person health approach to the new year 🔶 How to keep from falling into the same yearly resolution cycle 🔶 Some better examples of resolutions you can adopt for yourself  🔶 Why Tony thinks the English language is wrong about his pronunciation of words …and much more!

228. How to Live an Anti-Diet Lifestyle
Most of what you see in the weight loss space is simply a repackaged version of Diet Culture. The strategies might be different on the surface, but they still all share ineffective common denominators that set you up for failure and keep you stuck in the diet cycle. They may throw words out there like "lifestyle" or "psychology" or "mindset", but that doesn't change the fact they will continue to keep you stuck and frustrated for a lifetime. The Anti-Diet lifestyle is the antidote to Diet Culture. It's what leads to food and body freedom. But a lot of people don't know what it means to live an Anti-Diet lifestyle. It's so much more than just not following the latest fad diet. In episode 228 of Fitness & Sushi, Deanna and I are going to compare and contrast the two different lifestyles so you can see why the Diet Culture approach taken by millions of people every year continues to lead to disappointment. And why our approach using the Ideal Body Formula is the way out of your lifetime struggle. In this episode - “How to Live an Anti-Diet Lifestyle", you'll learn... 🔶 Discover the core principles of an anti-diet lifestyle 🔶 What it takes to break free from Diet Culture 🔶 Why "anti-diet" goes beyond just nutrition 🔶 Why you don’t need a PhD in human biology to achieve your unique ideal body 🔶 How Deanna convinced Tony to get a kitten …and much more!
