    Why Does Obesity Disproportionately Impact People Of Color, & What To Do About It, with Percell Dugger

    Why Does Obesity Disproportionately Impact People Of Color, & What To Do About It, with Percell Dugger

    Percell Dugger, NYC-based wellness consultant, certified strength coach, and Nike running coach, joins Jillian to discuss equity in health and fitness. This week’s conversation is thoughtful and bold as we look at why people of color are disproportionately affected by obesity. How do we effectively advocate for health across racial lines? What happens when big corporations put profit over people and what can we do about it? Is messaging about being “healthy at any size” specifically targeting people of color, and is it helping or hurting? Plus, we take a hard look at cultural foods like frybread and soul food. While unhealthy, how can they be incorporated sparingly without robbing people of their culture and identity? And most importantly, having the patience and empathy to learn how to invite people in and communicate in ways that will get through with meaning.

AlliBull ,

Candid and helpful information

The fact that so many people are triggered by her only goes to show she’s hitting on some element of truth. People love to hate Jillian and ‘cancel’ her but the fact is she’s continually learning and always goes back to the basics and holds people accountable for their actions. She reminds us to take responsibility and take action in our own lives.

She is so full of herself

I had to shut it off if I heard her brag about herself one more time. I think I lost brain cells

Linda Jeanne61 ,

Thank you

I love listening to Jillian, she is so real & down to earth. I feel like I’m hanging out with a good friend when I’m listening to her podcasts. I know if we met we’d be really good friends, lol. Keep it up girl!!!
