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

Mega excited to talk to the charming Meredith Noble of Made on a Generous Plan. There's something so calming and joyful about Meredith's presence, even when talking about some really heavy things like healing the relationship you have with your body and with self. Not exactly causal topics, but she makes it easy to talk about. If you're new to Meredith then I think you're going to love her, and if you already know her, you'll know how much of a treat it is to have her on the show.

We talk about:
✨Building community as a healing space
✨Reclaiming the word fat
✨Body image healing and body acceptance
✨Embodiment as a path to healing
✨Rebuilding relationship with self
✨Internalised fat phobia
✨Grieving the thin ideal

In part two of my conversation with academic and activist Dr. Oli Williams, we discuss the work he does via his art collective, Act With Love. The mission of AWL is to translate Oli's research from complex ideas on weight stigma and inequality into artwork that conveys a simple message. In this 'sode we cover:


✨How health is not defined by weight
✨ The problem with using BMI as a measure of health
✨ How weight stigma worsens health outcomes
✨ The moralisation of bodies
✨ Weight bias in the medical community
✨ The lived experience of ‘obesity’
✨ Social movements and resistance

When we think about what needs to be done to improve population health, we think about things like getting people moving more, and eating plenty of fruit and veg. But what if well intentioned health promoting campaigns (like Change 4 Life, 5-a-day, + the sugar tax) actually didn't improve health, but made the disparities in health WORSE? That's the focus of the conversation between myself and researcher/activist Dr. Oli Williams. This is a really rich conversation and I can't wait for you to hear. 
We talk about:
✨ the social determinants of health 
✨the inequality paradox
✨ the social gradient of health 
✨how the best health interventions address underlying inequalities rather than focusing on individual behaviours
✨ how improving standard of living will result in people engaging in healthier lifestyles
