Today I'm talking to body positive yoga teacher and writer, Lily Silverton about the myths surrounding what a 'yoga body' should look like and how the narrow version of yoga, stemming from the beauty myth and propagated by diet culture, fails to make room for for people who deviate from this oppressive norm. We also talk about the concept of Ahimsa and how Lily interprets this to mean making her classes a safe, body positive space for her students. Lastly we talk about how owning your own privilege doesn't mean you can't be body positive, but it does mean that you can be critical of how diet culture has co-opted this term and how it suppresses the voices of already marginalised people. It's about holding ourselves accountable & fighting for diversity & representation of ALL bodies, not just the ones that are already visible, not just the ones we find pretty. We also talk about how, like all social change, fighting for true body positivity, equality, and diversity is slow and we are only at the beginning and how conversations like these are necessary to chip away at the status quo. Lastly, Lily shares some of her favourite bopo yoga accounts to follow. This feels like a heavy conversation in a lot of way - probably because checking our privilege feels uncomfortable, but I hope we can all learn from this. I by no means am suggesting I'm close to perfect in how we talk about these issues, but I want to learn alongside you guys, and use this podcast to learn and grow together ✌️

Alright guys, buckle in, it's a long one. Today I’m joined by NHS specialist Dietitian and everyone’s favourite RD, Nic Whitehead as we debunk all the weird crap that bloggers say on their blogs and social media. We talk about the detox myth, activated charcoal, apple cider vinegar, and discuss the whole ‘refined sugar free’ thing. Plus fruit sugars, ‘clean’ plant based milks, and nutrition for acne. We also talk a bit more broadly about developing a healthy relationship with food that doesn’t unnecessarily eliminate or restricts foods and why food is for pleasure, enjoyment, and satisfaction, and that nutrition is never all or nothing.So much great stuff in this 'sode, think you're gonna enjoy it 👾

Chevy Rough is a Human Performance Coach, Mindful Mover, and running coach from the BBC1 documentary, Mind Over Marathon. In today's ep, Chevy shares how he went from City Banker to mindfulness ambassador by using movement to help him overcome and process mental health challenges. We discuss identity, fear of rejection, substance abuse, the stigma around mental health and medication, and using movement as part of your toolkit to help with improving mental health. Finally we talk about what mindful movement actually is, and how to put it into practice (spoiler: get off Strava). Have wanted to get Chevy on the podcast for a long time, so glad to finally make it happen!

Today I'm so excited to introduce you to Christy Harrison, non-diet dietitian and host of the Food Psych podcast. There's so much in this episode, it's kinda tough to summarise it, but here are some highlights: we discuss the biology of why diets don't work, and, how when you really dig into the literature, it's not an evidence based practice. This raises an interesting question around the ethics of recommending weight loss diets. We also talk about why it's not intuitive eating if you're counting macros or calories and how those things may be keeping you in disordered eating. Christy shares so much insight and wisdom into the intuitive eating process, as well as her own experiences with recovering from an eating disorder. Finally we talk about how to be responsible when sharing messages of body positivity from a place of thin privilege. Buckle in kids, this is a great episode filled with so much great information; I have a feeling you're going to love Christy.
