Welcome to Diet Starts Tomorrow, a podcast hosted by Betches co-founders Aleen Kuperman and Samantha Fishbein, featuring all things wellness, weight loss, mental health and fitness from the no-bullsh*t perspective of real women who understand the struggle. In a world where “wellness” looks perfect on Instagram but feels anything but in real life, this podcast explores the psychological and emotional side of wellbeing as a whole. Listen as they take you on a wellness journey where they discuss their own experiences with weight loss, which fitness routines are actually attainable for the working Betch, staying healthy while still having fun, and how to handle weekend socializing when your friends are forcing you to binge drink and throw caution to the wind.
How Do I Explain My Food Triggers To My Friends & Family?
On this Dear DST, Sami and Aleen are talking all about confiding in a loved one about your own personal struggles. A listener writes in to explain how she opened up to her boyfriend about her eating disorder, and asks how to tell him that some of the words he uses are triggers for her. They share their own experiences with confiding in their significant others, and tell us how to open up without pushing someone away. Plus, they talk about the difference between being vulnerable and being clingy, and discuss how to communicate your feelings clearly.
What Do F-Factor And All In By Teddi Have In Common? Ft. @wellnessalexis
Sami and Aleen are joined by Alexis Barber (@wellnessalexis on Instagram) to talk about getting pulled into the F-Factor drama last week. They start with her feelings on trying the diet, how it made her fear certain foods without even realizing it, and what led her to become a public participant in the conversation. They talk about moving away from diet culture, including how the diet world is tied to race and privilege, and what she realized about her own disordered habits. Next, they discuss the latest controversy surrounding the All In by Teddi “accountability” program. This leads to a conversation about why you have to figure things out for yourself before you can shift your attitude toward dieting. Finally, they each share a Non Scale Win of the week, including a series of wins about embracing the pasta.

Plus, they talk about turning everything into a game to motivate yourself during a workout.
Where Do All My Self-Imposed Food Rules Come From?
Aleen and Sami are back and start the show with a post-honeymoon reflection and a conversation about Fall vacationing. Then they discuss the urge to change your body to fit in certain outfits, and explain how the clothes we choose are often tied to the thin self that could potentially wear them. Plus, they examine where these self-imposed rules (about food and otherwise) really come from. Next, they talk about all the things that go into being healthy, why it’s not all about dieting to fit into a smaller body, and how calorie count is not the same as nutrition. Finally, they share a listener Non Scale Win and talk about a bikini breakthrough.
Why Can’t F-Factor Offer A Genuine Apology?
On this Thursday’s episode Sami and Aleen are back with an impromptu podcast responding to the F-Factor IG Live that took place last night.

****Also so weird about the f factor lovers reviewing negatively about this podcast is such a shame! Out of touch with the diet starts tomorrow audience! Come as you are and be vulnerable, stop defending yourself so much!!****
