The Food is Not Bae Podcast is a podcast that goes beyond the typical verbiage of weight loss and diet culture. In a homegirl, down-to-earth, yet professional, type of way, Dr. Ebony chats with you about ways to free yourself from societal, familial, and cultural messages rooted in the diet culture that is keeping you stuck in a toxic relationship with food. Dr. Ebony will discuss the issues we don't want to talk about or want anybody to know - those internal (and external) issues leading to weight gain and the underlying struggles to take it off. Yes, she goes there! Dr. Ebony, a licensed Psychologist, Author, and Food Relationship Guide, talks about the difficult issues in efforts to help you, and your communities, better understand where toxic relationships with food begin and how to restructure them in healthier ways. Episodes focus on the links between food and issues like rejection, betrayal, trauma, loneliness, grief, confusion, pain, religion, politics, culture, social approval, and so much more. Dr. Ebony goes beyond the regular path of providing dieting advice and, instead, digs deeper into real life issues. She connects how these issues are tied to mindset, food choices, disease, and the overall struggles people have with losing weight, being consistent, and following through. After digging into areas that have been hidden for so long, Dr. Ebony provides you with real talk and real tips and strategies for overcoming internal struggles and regaining control of your life and your health - on your terms!

Really good podcast

I bought Dr. Ebony’s My Therapy Cards after seeing them on Instagram. Then I heard her speak on the Research Her podcast and was so captivated by the way she spoke about our relationships to food. This lead me to checking out her podcast and I’m so happy I did. It is very informative and interesting. Dr. Ebony is candid and relatable.
