Introducing the Foodist Podcast!

by | Mar 8, 2016


In just over two weeks Summer Tomato will celebrate it’s 7th anniversary. I’m deeply humbled that so many people have trusted me as their guide to getting healthy and losing weight in a sane, positive way.

But every once in awhile I wake up in the morning and all I can think is: good gawd I’m sick of writing about myself!

This is why I’m thrilled today to announce the launch of the Foodist podcast.

Finally, the spotlight is on you guys.

In the Foodist podcast I interview real people on their healthstyle journey so you can see real life examples of how people-who-aren’t-me have managed to find health and happiness without dieting.

There are countless ways to get healthy and lose weight. As a foodist, it’s your job to find the way that works for you. My goal for the Foodist podcast is to show you what has and hasn’t worked for different people, to give you both inspiration and guidance along your own healthstyle journey.

Currently there are three types of episodes on the show:

  • Ask Darya: Short 5-10 min segments where I answer simple questions that have been submitted by readers here at Summer Tomato.
  • Success stories: Interviews with people who have achieved some type of healthstyle success. I’ll help dissect what did and didn’t work for them along the way. (30-40 min)
  • Troubleshooting: Live coaching sessions where I help someone figure out a particular issue they have been stuck on and come up with a solution. (30-60 min)

I decided to make the show audio only, so guests could feel free to share their stories somewhat anonymously. I’ll continue to post the Ask Darya videos here on Summer Tomato.

This is an experiment for now, so I need your feedback to decide if this is something I should keep doing. Is there something you’d like to see more or less of? Please let me know.

Thanks and I hope you enjoy!

  1. Congrats, I can’t wait to listen. I’m a podcast a-holic. One more to add to my roster!

    I feel good interviews and resolution of questions and problems, but prefer to read so I hope that the podcast has transcript.

    A greeting.

    I love the idea! I hope you are interested in interviewing us way over here in Thailand. About what? Thai food, or anything! lol. Love you and Kevin!

    I listened to all three episodes when I received the e-mail. I’m loving podcasts right now so I was super excited! Loved them! Please keep them going! I’m a fairly new reader of the blog – the Nutrition Diva mentioned you in her blog I think and I really wish I’d found it sooner. BTW your cabbage and eggs is my new go to meal. I’ve always loved eggs with this takes them to another level.

    The troubleshooting idea is great! Love the concept! I’ll be checking out the podcast soon for sure!

  6. Greg says:

    These have been great, Darya. Thank you. I kind of lose the way sometimes, so these podcast reminders are really valuable.

  7. Laura says:

    I just started listening to your podcasts before even checking out your website. I thought that it had been out for a while and was disappointed to find out that I went through them all in just a few days! Keep them coming- I love them!

  8. Cassie T says:

    Love love love the podcast, Darya!
    On a technical note, is there anywhere besides iTunes that we can leave a review? I’m not an Apple user and was hoping to avoid downloading iTunes on my PC for the sole purpose of leaving a review. Let me know – thanks!
