Diet culture robs people of all sizes from their money, time, health, and happiness. It plays a major role in perpetuating eating disorders, food-body preoccupation, weight stigma, and fatphobia. And sadly, there is an entire industry that supports - and promotes - the feeling of constantly not being "satisfied" with who we are on our bodies.
That's what this episode is dedicated to - removing the shame and liberating folks to be comfortable in their own skin. I am sitting down with Intuitive Eating Counselors and Registered Dietitians, Autumn and Jasmine from Mendinground. Their words are so powerful and encouraging that you, too, can break free from this terrible diet culture mindset.
