Episode #39: “It’s Not a Diet, It’s About Health”
In this episode, we’re talking about a common misconception that comes up when talking about anti-diet culture. What if you follow a particular way of eating (ahem, diet) for “health” instead of weight-loss? How does that fit into the paradigm of food freedom and attuned eating?
This is a packed episode! We touch on healthism, food morality, intention with food choices, elimination for medical reasons, and how to know if your lifestyle is just another diet in disguise.
Diane and Abbie also chat about their relationship with Instagram at this moment, plus, of course, some recent food favorites. Come for the diet culture talk, stay for the “Loving Lately”!
