This is a show about health, not weight loss. It’s time to redefine what it means to pursue health, where your well-being matters more than your weight. When you practice Body Kindness®, you create a more satisfying life by being good to yourself. Learn how self-compassion and acceptance help you cultivate a “caregiver” voice and quiet the “inner critic”. HAES Dietitian and Certified Exercise Physiologist Rebecca Scritchfield and her guests have interesting conversations about the cultural influences that keep you stuck in “diet prison” and how you can break free to create meaningful changes in your life. Instead of dieting, you’ll practice self-care, including better sleep, flexible eating patterns, having more fun, and moving in way that feels good, not punishing. Regular guest Bernie Salazar, a former Biggest Loser “winner” shares why he’s happier and healthier as a fat man.

    #140 - Boys and Sex: Navigating the new masculinity with bestselling author Peggy Orenstein

    Peggy Orenstein is back on the show with her instant New York Times Bestseller, Boys and Sex. Tune in to hear insights from her conversations with over 100 boys from high school to college across the U.S. We discuss why parents aren’t talking to their boys about sex and intimacy even though they really want the space to explore, to be vulnerable, and to figure it out, not just absorb the cultural narrative about masculinity that was created for them.

    #138 - Why being “ANTI-diet” is “pro” health with Christy Harrison, HAES dietitian, host of Food Psych podcast and author of Anti-Diet

    As more people become aware of words like “body positivity” and “anti-diet” it opens the door for confusion — what does it actually mean & is it really good for health? What makes something a “diet? Christy Harrison’s book Anti-Diet lays out the historical context of dieting & weight stigma. We discuss why healthcare providers must examine how we oppress people operating in a weight normative model of care & how we can create a healthier world when we commit to anti-oppression.
