The girls are here to answer what BMI *actually* is, address weight stigma in healthcare, and discuss the meaning of the Health at Every Size movement. If you’ve ever been told you need to lose weight by a doctor, if you’ve ever felt less than because of the size of your body, if you think a larger body inherently means an unhealthy body... this one is for you. We understand this topic can be controversial and encourage you to listen with an open mind and heart.

    Dietitians Review: Herbalife

    Dietitians Review: Herbalife

    Y'ALL. Herbalife is something that has somehow escaped our radar of wellness myths until right now. This one is especially unique because you likely know someone who has been affected by/the victim of Herbalife Nutrition since it's a popular MLM.


    This episode will explore the supplements + powders, legal action, and sketchy science behind Herbalife Nutrition.  The girls will teach you what to look out for in this pyramid scheme, from  "fat burning" supplements and ambiguous protein powders. Wondering if these magic pills are really magic? Listen in to find out!

So helpful!

I just discovered this podcast a week ago (date of submission) and have learned so much!

I was feeling down and like garbage, because of a diet I was on that was not working for me. I looked up the diet and found an episode on the company (as well as the other diet company I’ve tried before) and so much made sense! From there, I listened to more episodes about intuitive eating, knowing my body, and paying attention to my body and what it wants. Eating when I’m hungry, having a better relationship with food and more.

So glad I came across it! Looking forward to more episodes!

One of my new favorite podcasts!

Super fun way to delve into topics you never thought to question. I love the dynamic between the hosts and am learning so much about my own body, health, and how to navigate my wellness journey.

Fellow RD Fan!

One of my favorite podcasts! It’s educational, timely, and I always feel like I’m part of Emily & Vanessa’s conversations. Myths are debunked with a whole health approach avoiding the pseudo wellness that is all too common within our diet culture. I’m also a dietitian and a big fan! I love sharing this podcast as a resource to others as well.
