143: How Diets Quiet Us, Otherness, and Finding Activism with Carolina Guizar
Carolina (Carol) Guizar joins the show to talk about why diet culture sucks, and what it looks like in the Latinx community. She gets real about her lived experience as a Mexican-American, and a woman in this country, struggling with beauty "ideals", thin-privilege within her family culture, and efforts to fit in and avoid otherness. Recently, Carol has taken her work, and anti-diet message to the Instagram account, @la_eathority. Here, she shares "Intuitive eating+body peace for Latinxs".
