Anti-diet eating-disorder-recovery mentor, fat activist, and video content creator Daph Levy joins us to discuss her journey from being a dieting “success story” and weight-loss camp counselor to pursuing a career in eating-disorder treatment and recovery, privilege within the eating-disorder-treatment field, the feeling of not belonging and dieting to try to fit in, sitting with discomfort in recovery, and so much more.
Daph Levy (she/her) is an anti-diet eating-disorder recovery mentor, fat activist, and video content creator based in Boston, MA. She completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics, Nutrition & Food Science at the University of Vermont, and her Dietetic Internship from Simmons University. As a person who identifies as queer, fat, and Latina, Daph strives to offer a unique perspective on how to view health and wellbeing. She brings forth her expertise in the area of size diversity and health with conviction and care to the individuals with whom she speaks. Daph draws from her infinite curiosity and advocacy work to listen reflectively in order to best inform how she shares her valuable knowledge from her educational background, clinical training, and lived experiences in her recovery from eating disorders on her YouTube channel and Instagram “dishinwithdaph.” On the channel she dives deep into topics including eating disorder recovery, Health at Every Size, Intuitive Eating, and more. In the near future, Daph hopes to offer one-on-one and group coaching services to support people who struggle with body image and relationship to food.
