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

This week Laura's joined by Fiona Willer, HAES dietitian + PhD researcher, director of Health Not Diets + author of The Non Diet Approach Guidebook for Dietitians. They take a deep dive into the current evidence within the weight science arena, pulling it apart to figure out what we can learn from it + improvements that need to be made in research + clinical practice going forward. 

In this episode they discuss:

✨ The historical inaccuracy of the paleo diet using Fiona's archeological knowledge
✨ Unpacking the evidence in weight science + how it's so important that we read it critically
✨ What "statistical unicorns" are + the problems w/ the National Weight Control Registry 
✨ Weight bias in the context of Tess Holiday's Cosmo cover + why the term 'weight bias' is probably not very accurate
✨ Nuggets of wisdom for what to do if you know that diets don't work but your doctor tells you to lose weight ... again

The pod is back for its 3rd season! And this week Laura speaks to Nadia Craddock, one half of the Appearance Matters podcast - the official podcast of the Centre for Appearance Research at UWE. They take a dive deep into the research on body image (BI) - what it currently shows us + what's missing, get into the nitty gritty of the wider social justice piece around body image, and finish off by sharing some practical tips for challenging negative body image. 

In this episode, Laura and Nadia discuss:

✨What positive + negative BI is 
✨The consequences of our BI on our sense of self-worth
✨The public health implications of BI
✨The wider social justice issues surrounding BI, including how intersecting marginalised identities can impact on BI
✨ And finally, pointers for developing better BI
