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

✨  The unrealistic body image ideals placed on GNC and trans people

In this week's episode, I'm talking to the sensational Bethany Rutter, journalist and author of the new book 'No Big Deal'. We're  going deep on super important topics around body liberation and fat-phobia and why we need to return to BoPo's radical roots if we are actually going to make a difference. Lean in, because Bethany is this episode is gold and Bethany is dynamite 💥

In this ep, we discuss;

✨Bethany’s awesome new book, No Big Deal, and why Bethany was so passionate about writing a YA novel centering a fat babe
✨Why we need to stop putting pressure on fat-representation in popular media to be boiled down to one experience + resonate with everyone all of the time
✨Fat-shion + Bethany’s experiment to find a sartorial essential (a plain white tee) on the high street and why this highlights everyday discrimination against fat bodies
✨The ‘thin-washing’ of the bo-po movement + why we need to return to it’s radical roots
