111: Before and After Photos
Before and After photos used to be my favourite thing to skip to in my Weight Watchers magazine. Seeing what was possible for me as long as I stuck to the diet was intoxicating. But what are we really learning from before and afters and what about “body-positive” before and afters showing people who used to be thin and in diet hell and now heavier but at peace, are they good, bad, or something else? Join me and Summer for another incredible episode of Death to Diets!

110: How to Cope With Weight Gain and Feeling Uncomfortable in Your Body
Does this sound familiar? "I keep going into negative thought spirals around weight and it’s worse now because since starting intuitive eating and recovering from my ED I have gained weight." Noticing changes in our body can be distressing and consume our thoughts. Thoughts like "If only I was thin then my life would be better!" Today we talk about how to deal with them and remove shame from the driver's seat.

I’m sharing 30_ examples today. Plus I talk about the levels of fatphobia. TW: Ton of horrific examples of medical fatphobia, I let you know when that starts.

101: Are Fat People at Higher Risk From COVID?
Now that the panini has been going on for a while the science nerds have been able to collect more evidence to support the idea that fat people are going around eating people in the street and giving them covid.

TW: there are some mentions of violent healthcare fatphobia in this episode, plus talk about needles.

100: Is Weight Loss a Mindset Issue?
I held the belief that I was fat because there was something "wrong with my brain" for a long time. Weight is a manifestation of trauma on the body, isn't it? If I had my life together then I'd be thin, right? I talk about how those beliefs are so prevalent in the self-help and online business world. Plus I answer questions on how to tell people to stop talking about weight and diet culture without alienating them (or losing them as your customer!).
