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 on the pod Laura’s chatting to Dr Amy Slater, body image researcher at University of West England. 

In this episode they discuss:

✨ Thin ideal internalisation + its  physical and psychological consequences 
✨ How social media holds certain body types up as the ideal + can leave us feeling dissatisfied
✨ The fact that labelling images as digitally altered is not actually helpful in reducing comparison + dissatisfaction and can actually backfire
✨ How advertising in traditional media + social media can impact body image 
✨ That even positive feedback about appearance impacts negatively on our body image 
✨ What social comparison is + how this has changed with social media
✨ The consequences of viewing fitspiration + self-objectification on Instagram 
✨ How we can curate a social media feed that's supportive of positive body image

This week on the pod Laura’s teaming up with Jess, Registered Dietitian and clinician here at the London Centre for Intuitive Eating, to tackle some myths that we've seen flying around about intuitive eating. 

In this episode they discuss:

✨ What Intuitive Eating is + what it isn't, including a summary of the principles of IE
✨ Whether you need to be hormonally and biochemically "restored" before working on IE  
✨ Why emotional eating isn't inherently a bad thing + what we can learn from it 
✨ Why the idea that IE = "eating what you want when you want" is trash
✨ How working through IE looks different on everyone and will take different people different amounts of time to make peace with food and their bodies
✨ Why IE is actually health-promoting 
✨ How to spot fake IE versus true IE
