#79: To Weigh or Not To Weigh with Tina Laboy
IN THIS EPISODE
Tina Laboy is the owner of her group practice called TLB Nutrition Therapy. She is a certified eating disorder registered dietitian and supervisor as well as a certified personal trainer. Tina works primarily with those struggling with eating disorders and wanting to heal their relationship with food, their body and movement. She focuses on bettering her client’s physical and emotional health by employing a non-diet approach to food, using intuitive and conscious eating principles. She embraces everyone’s individual qualities and hopes to make a difference in her clients lives by practicing weight inclusive care and supporting body diversity.
When she isn’t working in private practice, she is active in her volunteer work with her local eating disorder professional community and is the cofounder of Texas Eating Disorder Dietitians, a professional supervision business. She also is the co-host of the podcast “Mom Genes: The Podcast” with Rachel Coleman.
We discuss topics including:
- Who is blind weighing and open weighing appropriate for?
- The importance of assessing the mental health of each client
- Being aware of our clients value systems to evaluate if they should see the number on the scale
- The pros and cons of exposure and not wanting recovery affected by the exposure
- Devaluing the number
- The best treatment is client centered
