Don't Salt My Game | With Laura Thomas, PhD

Join Registered Nutritionist Laura Thomas, PhD for conversations with game changers. Laura talks to people in wellness, foodies, bloggers, entrepreneurs from cool brands, creatives, nutritionists, doctors, body positivity people, mindfulness experts, and anyone else who is shaking up the wellness world, to find out how they stay on top of their game – and to help you do you, but better. It’s not all handstands and courgetti though - she and her guests aren’t afraid to dig deep into the darker side of wellness and WILL call BS on weird, faddy trends, that don’t have any legitimacy or scientific merit. Fresh pods every Friday. #dontsaltmygame

On this week's 'sode I'm talking to Dr. Charlotte Cooper, psychotherapist and author of fat activism; she is punk, witchy, queer, and fat, and one of the coolest people I've ever met. This is potentially one of my favourite episodes ever. We talk about the euphimising and watering down of fat phobia by the medical establishment. We talk about how the 'War on Obesity' and organisations like the WHO are responsible for creating the problem of fat phobia in the first place and how they are now trying to  clean their own mess and STILL GETTING IT WRONG. We talk about why using person first language in relation to obesity is still problematic. We talk about maintaining power structures through constructing fat bodies as problems that need solving and so much more. It's a really rich conversation. I highly recommend you read Charlotte's book and follow her work.

Happy New year team! Today I'm talking to the incredible Marci Evans about body image, self-acceptance, and food 'addiction'. Marci is a certified EDRD, a body image healer, and intuitive eating counsellor. Our conversation is a great antidote to all the diet culture BS you're seeing everywhere right now. We talk about why it's so challenging to develop positive body image, what real body positivity actually means and thin privilege. We also look more closely at self-acceptance and self-compassion and why developing practices around these concepts can help you heal your body image. Finally we go deep on the science around the idea of food 'addiction' and discuss what the evidence really means; plus some ideas on how to help build a healthier relationship with foods you feel you might be addicted to.
