Episode #31: Listener Q&A – Handling “Diet & Exercise” Advice for a Medical Condition

In this episode, we’re answering a listener question (with recommendations in general for handling medical conditions):

“Do you have suggestions for handling a high blood pressure diagnosis? I recently started blood pressure medication but have been wary of my doctor’s “diet and exercise” suggestion for lowering it without meds. Would love your HAES perspective on this! Thanks to both of you!”

Studies of interest (TW for weight stigma):

  1. A review of interventions that promote eating by internal cues
  2. Medicare’s search for effective obesity treatments: diets are not the answer
  3. Health-At-Every-Size and Eating Behaviors: 1-Year Follow-Up Results of a Size Acceptance Intervention
