    Weight Loss Surgery and Drugs for Kids, What the Actual Fork Review, Offending People on Social Media, Dairy Queen Butterfinger Blizzards

    On this week's episode of "The Diet Obsessed Podcast" I recap my over-indulgence on Dairy Queen Butterfinger Blizzards (with Heath Bar and Oreo Cookies added) and how I intuitively need a break from processed sugar.

    I also am doing another review of the the podcast "What the Actual Fork" when hosts Jenna and Sam discussed a very polarizing topic:

     The Acadamy of Pediatrics just announced that children as young as 13 years old, who reach a certain weight threshhold, are now being recommended for Weight Loss Drugs and Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery!  It's incredibly shocking and these RD's are outraged!

    Other topics include: the New Year, New You Challenge, The Year of Hustle, Offending People on Social Media and so much more; as always, I mention it all on this podcast!

    Not Skinny But Not Fat, Ozempic Side Effects, What The Actual Fork Review, Drunk Dieticians, Relationship with Alcohol

    Not Skinny But Not Fat, Ozempic Side Effects, What The Actual Fork Review, Drunk Dieticians, Relationship with Alcohol

    On this week's episode of "The Diet Obsessed Podcast" I recap my continued trip in Maine and the slight balance I have been able to maintain, whilst plowing carbs and taking freezing-cold dog-walks.

    I then do a quick review of the podcast called "Not Skinny But Not Fat" from Amanda Hirsch, when she had guest host Remi Bader and they talked about Ozempic side effects (hint Remi felt like it made her food binges WAY worse after getting off it!)

    I then review another podcast I recently discovered called "What The Actual Fork" from RD's Sammy and Jenna, which used to be called "Drunk Dieticians" before they changed their name.  I had read a review that complained about the hosts, saying they perpetuated diet culture, so of course I had to check it out for myself and give my opinionated opinion!  

    As usual I mention it all in this entertaining episode!

    Holiday Brunch, Chicken & Waffles, The Fitness Faker - Scamfluencer Review

    Holiday Brunch, Chicken & Waffles, The Fitness Faker - Scamfluencer Review

    Merry Christmas Everyone!  I've got a good one for you this week: 

    On this week's episode of "The Diet Obsessed Podcast" I discuss all of the delicious holiday treats I am indulging in, including: donuts, chicken & waffles, pastry and copious amounts of alcohol.

    I also do a review of a podcast called "Scamfluencers" and a particularly fascinating episode called " The Fitness Faker" which is about a fitness/weight loss influencer named Brittney Dawn, who scammed thousands of people out of money,  promising personalized plans, one-on-one support and other services she was not actually able to provide.  

    While Brittany may have had good intentions, she ended up causing harm to people who needed her help; people she did not have the credentials or education to work with, for example people suffering from eating disorders.   

    The drama came to a disastrous culmination, when Brittany ended up getting sued by the State of Texas for Consumer Fraud and could face jail-time!

Fav Diet Pod Ever

I cannot tell you how much I love this podcast! Veronica manages to be super real and conversational, but also incredibly well spoken and confident in her opinions. Absolutely love how detailed she is when describing foods (I, too, love the details). I so appreciate her balanced approach to diet culture, indulging in fried deliciousness, and taking personal responsibility when it comes to fitness + choosing mostly whole foods . Def give it a listen!🥑🧘🏻‍♀️💗🍸🧁

Not

I appreciate the premise, but expected more of a critical lens towards the topics, execution, and conclusions drawn by other podcasts in the health/wellness/diet culture genre. I listened to two episodes and both were more of a play-by-play critique of a solitary podcast episode.

Great information delivered by an engaging host

Having a busy life I enjoy this site because it shares a variety of information from other podcasts that I don’t have to follow. The host is refreshingly open and honest about her food travails.
