She has worked with elite-level athletes including gymnasts and divers. Her knowledge and understanding of eating disorders in sport are unbelievable. She hits us over the head with pure facts and logic. She challenges both Tait and I's understanding of the evidence-based funnel and the risks associated with weight category-based sports. How can we minimize these impacts through the environment we create and the langue that we use?

Is Diet Culture Gaslighting Us? With Fiona Sutherland

Soul Sessions with Jodie Gale

In Is Diet Culture Gaslighting Us?, I interview Fiona Sutherland, also known as, The Mindful Dietitian. She shares about her own history with body image concerns, diet culture throughout time, the overwhelm women feel at the confusion about what they ‘should’ be eating, how diet culture gaslights us, the stories we tell ourselves about food, food rules and where food rules come from, black and white thinking about whether food is ‘good, clean, healthy’ or ‘bad, dirty, unhealthy’, carbophobia; it’s history, whether carbs are bad and why we end up bingeing on carbs, and how we can heal our relationship with food through intuitive eating, health at every size, self-compassion and trauma informed yoga.
