I’ll take any opportunity to call out diet culture BS when I see it. The recent Washington Post article “As obesity rises, Big Food and dietitians push ‘anti-diet’ advice” has quite frankly p*ssed me off, and I want to talk about it with you! There is a large systemic issue at hand when it comes to Intuitive Eating, Health At Every Size (HAES), and weight-inclusive non-diet work. Biased publications, like the Washington Post, are spreading ignorant and misinformed information about what “anti-diet” really means. 

This makes me the most frustrated because I can only imagine how confusing it must be to see headlines like this when you are someone who is trying to pursue your relationship with food & body healing journey. So in this episode, I want to set the record straight. Let’s dive into some big myth busting about anti-diet work! 

I chat with you about:

  • The recent Washington Post article on “anti-diet dietitians” 
  • What people often get wrong when they think about anti-diet or intuitive eating
  • How anti-diet does NOT mean eating twinkies in unlimited amounts
  • Anti-diet DOES mean improving your well-being – physical, mental, emotional, overall! 
  • What Health at Every Size, Intuitive Eating, weight-inclusive care, anti weight bias, etc. are really about 
  • How oppressive, inequitable, and harmful weight-centric ways of approaching health can be
  • Restrictive diets often leading to weight cycling and/or disordered eating, or even eating disorders 
  • How a surface-level look at intuitive eating is not helpful, it’s very nuanced 
  • To not rely on social media solely for support in your health & well-being 
  • And so so much more.
