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.

Hold tight folks, this is a good one! This week, I’m chatting with Molly Forbes, journalist, campaigner, author of Body Happy Kids and founding director of the Body Happy Organisation.

Molly gives loads of practical and pragmatic advice for how you can begin to open up conversations with your school to stomp out diet culture and support positive body esteem. It's such a helpful episode for anyone who has wondered whether or not schools are undoing some of the things that you're doing at home to protect your kids' relationship with food and their bodies. 

Some of the topics we cover include:

  • How influential schools really are when it comes to supporting/disrupting body esteem. 
  • Where diet culture creeps up in schools in areas like school uniform policy.
  • How we can open up conversations with schools about diet culture, and how teachers can get their schools on board with an anti diet culture policy.
  • How you can begin to tackle food policing policies. 
  • National weight measurement programme and why you should opt your kiddo out.

HEYO - look who’s back on the pod!

Tally first shared her journey with us back in 2019 {listen to that here}. Since then she’s published two books and completely shaken up the fitness industry, challenging the notoriously weight-centric, aesthetics focussed industry to move in ways that feel joyful and to prioritize rest (and not feel guilty about it!). She also joined us in 2021 to break down the principles of Intuitive Movement {you can listen to that here}.

This episode was recorded back in January as part of a live Q+A we did (before things got weird). I decided to save this episode to share with you on International No Diet Day because it felt like the perfect way to celebrate!

In this episode we cover:

- The difference between exercise and intuitive movement
- How we can approach rest without feeling guilty
- Why I hate the daily mile in schools 
- Ableism in the fitness space
- How to know if movement is motivated by self-care or coming from a place of wanting to control your body and your weight

This is such a fun episode - Tally is a dream. If you enjoy this conversation then please don’t forget to share and keep the conversation going over on our socials!
