Mom Chats - Sick and Unhinged
Guys you’ll want to buckle up for this one. When we say unhinged, we mean it… We talk about how illness is worse with a baby, why kids never stop crying, and testicle shots. If that lineup doesn’t get you intrigued, we don’t know what will! Find us in IG @whattheactualforkpod.

very nuanced approach to the diet culture conversation! thank you guys!
Was really hoping they’d be different…found more of the same
Not science-based. Just replaces the all-or-nothing mentality of diet-culture with all-or-nothing mentality of a different kind (HAES/anti-diet philosophy).
I am amazed these hosts are licensed dietitians. This rhetoric has drowned ED recovery spaces for a few years now, it’s just a fad - just like any other fad diet. I wanted to give them a chance but found myself having to turn it off for my own sanity.
If you want actual science-based nuanced discussions on EDs/DE/recovering from diet culture, I suggest checking out the Whole Hearted Eating podcast.
Love love love
I love this show so much. It’s a part of my morning ritual since I’ve found it and am trying to get through all their episodes. So comforting and positive!
