Diet Starts Tomorrow

Vanessa joins us to talk about WTF diet culture actually is and what it’s not. Aleen and Vanessa kickoff the convo by discussing what Aleen has learned so far working with a dietician. They then discuss how nutrition will never be a *one-size fits all* (which is key to remember when scrolling social media) and Vanessa stresses how important that is when dealing with her clients. We then answer a lot of listener-submitted questions about the confusing and sometimes contradicting “facts” about nutrition, how to talk to kids about food or appearance comments, and why Doritos are Vanessa’s favorite food.

Diet Culture Needs to Die: My Conversation with Vanessa Rissetto

20 Minutes with Bronwyn

I have historically had a VERY fraught relationship with eating.  I grew up in Orange County, California, where eating disorders were a rite of passage. And I don’t say that flippantly—almost everyone I knew growing up had a disordered relationship to eating, myself included. I remember pulling into the student parking lot at my high school and seeing some kid’s Volkswagen decorated with a bumper sticker that read, “No Fat Chicks, my Bug will Scrape.” I remember feeling a sense of alarm … like, I had just been schooled on one of the fundamental rules of adolescence in my community: DO NOT be fat. Whatever else you may do. I know this tortured dynamic isn’t unique to me. Most women I know have a difficult relationship with food.  It’s VERY confusing to have a tortured relationship to something you literally cannot  live without.Food is a fact of our humanity. But for so many of us, it is a fact shrouded in myth and morality and twisted by culture.  It’s a mess. My guest today is someone who I think has the potential to break through the misinformation (and frankly, the misogyny) associated with food. Her name is Vanessa Rissetto, and I fell madly in love with her during this conversation. I know you will too. Vanessa is a registered dietician who Essence named “one of the top 5 black nutritionists that will make you change the way you think about nutrition”.
