    When Girl Math Is Also Self Care

    When Girl Math Is Also Self Care

    On today’s episode of Good Bodies, Emily and Lauren are bringing you some fresh Self Care Shares. Emily is finding new fun ways to explore her alcohol free journey with kombucha and a jacked up Arnold Palmer. Lauren shares that she’s secretly (not anymore!) started taking Ubers to the subway ever since they closed down a subway entryway in her neighborhood. It’s a little treat that makes a big difference in her overall week albeit a bit extravagant. She reminds us of one of her favorite phrases “If you have a problem that can be solved with money, you don’t have a problem, you have an expense.” This leads into a quick chat about girl math and how sometimes it’s okay to give ourselves permission to have something special.

    Hot Take: There’s No Such Thing As Pilates Arms

    Hot Take: There’s No Such Thing As Pilates Arms

    On today’s episode of Good Bodies, Emily and Lauren are talking all about the new Pink Pilates Princess trend and how it seems to be less about exercise and more about selling us things. They discuss Tiktok’s newest obsession with “pilates arms” and our lovely co-hosts are a bit skeptical. Does Miley Cyrus have “long lean pilates arms” or is she just… Miley Cyrus? This leads into a conversation about how exercise programs will often promise unrealistic and specific physical results regardless of one’s genetics or resources. The two also talk about the phenomenon of a shared worry many women have of “not wanting to get too buff.” Do people know what it actually takes to get “too buff”??

    Is South Park Done With Fat Jokes?

    Is South Park Done With Fat Jokes?

    On today’s episode of Good Bodies, Emily and Lauren are reviewing South Park’s newest movie “The End Of Ob*sity” which delves into the current cultural conversation around semaglutide injectables. Yes, South Park is a ridiculous and oftentimes offensive cartoon for adults… but do they make some valid points in this special? One of the running jokes they make is that “Rich people get Ozempic. Poor people get Lizzo.” Lauren especially has some thoughts on this and yes, we do enter the abyss of “Lauren’s conspiracy corner” for just a bit. A message from Emily and Lauren: Okay we love you but please stop making us watch this stuff.

    “It’s Not A Diet, It’s A Lifestyle” And Other Lies The Wellness Industry Told Us

    “It’s Not A Diet, It’s A Lifestyle” And Other Lies The Wellness Industry Told Us

    On today’s episode of Good Bodies, Emily and Lauren start things off with their advice segment. A listener writes in who has joined a fitness program which has accidentally reactivated some disordered thinking and eating. She joined because the trainer was super friendly and because they advertise body positive language. Do wellness programs have a responsibility to get the vocab right when it comes to terminology like “guilt-free eating”? If a calorie deficit is still being encouraged, is it really guilt free? This prompts a conversation about how confusing it can be to navigate wellness programs and the fitness industry as someone in search of true weight neutral care. The two close us out with a vocab lesson and tips on what to look out for. Thanks Emily and Lauren!

    Help! My Workout Routine is BORING.

    Help! My Workout Routine is BORING.

    On today’s episode of Good Bodies, Emily and Lauren are bringing you a Wellness Check all about their recent experiences with group fitness classes. Lauren recaps an aqua zumba class she recently attended where all the participants were plus size. Heaven is a place on earth and it's in a pool with fellow fat babes?? Then, Emily shares how bored she is with her current workout routine and she even muses about joining Lauren for one of her plus size group fitness classes. The event group is called “Power Plus Wellness” and before each class they make sure to say “All shapes and sizes are welcome here but we are plus size focussed.” Should Emily join in or should it be a protected fat space? Why can’t there be more body positive fitness spaces plus size focussed or not?

    Nips, Tucks, Lifts: A Conversation About Breast Surgeries

    Nips, Tucks, Lifts: A Conversation About Breast Surgeries

    On today’s episode of Good Bodies, Emily and Lauren start things off by discussing their opinions on elective plastic surgery. Bodily autonomy is important but are we forgetting to ask investigative questions such as… Is the male gaze playing a role? A self proclaimed member of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee ™ ,Emily shares what it was like to grow up with a mom who had larger boobs and reveals some shocking new information. Then, they welcome comedian and musician, Rachel Green to the show who has recently decided to have breast reduction surgery for medical and self care reasons. Currently at a J cup, Rachel reveals that she’s already feeling some pre-grief about something that has been such a big part of her life; pun intended. She goes on to share how she came to this decision as well as the ins and outs of getting it approved, what the surgery will entail and what after-care will look like. Who are we without our defining physical traits?

Love, love, love Lauren & Emily!

I don’t really know where to begin. I started listening a little over a year ago and immediately felt like these lovely humans are able to articulate a lot of the feelings I have had over my life about my body issues, my disordered eating, and just my lack of confidence overall. I loved Remy and hope she comes back for some guest spots, but when Lauren joined she shared things that I have never had to the ability to say to myself or to those who love me. I love this show because they are super thoughtful and insightful and have really helped me to start to explore so much of the sadness and anxiety that has been attached to my relationship with my body, movement, food, and so much more. Thank you Lauren and Emily for hosting such a thought provoking podcast!

Loved Emily & Remi…now it’s not for me

I started listening to DST a few months ago. I wasn’t crazy about it but when I went back to older episodes with Emily and Remi I really loved them. Lauren means well but she says nothing of substance, and they’ve completely lost any credibility with regards to the science around weight and the consequences of being obese.

Funny, informative, space space

I started listening to (then called) DST when Sami and Aleen hosted and I was deep into diet culture. So happy to have grown and evolved with the show and new hosts Lauren and Emily. They’re a breath of fresh air I look forward to the eps every week!! Every episode has something relevant AND makes me laugh.
