Pixie Turner: No Nonsense Nutrition

Play
Read more
In this episode I'm joined by feisty and 100% BS free nutritionist Pixie Turner.
Having started her journey as a clean eating food influencer, Pixie soon came to realise that the advice that she was sharing and totally believed in at the time was actually harmful and had no scientific backing. People were blindly following the advice of her and other influencers who had no training in nutrition and were recommending unachievable and sometimes harmful diets and food fads.
Pixie turned her back on the influencer world and took it upon herself to train as a nutritionist and the rest is history. She now guides people to have healthy relationships with their food and cuts through much of the(often well-meaning) bullshit that is to be found online.
Pixie is so refreshing and outspoken and I know you're going to get a lot out of this interview. I also really recommend her book The Insta-Food Diet.

Episode Notes

Pixie Turner is a passionate advocate for a science-based approach to food and she doesn't forget the importance of it fitting with the rest of our lives: being active, sleep, and our mental health. She has gone from self-declared "wellness w****r" to registered nutritionist with a Masters degree to back it up.

We talk about clean eating and the anxiety associated with that pressure. She discusses how a hyper-focus on physical health can often be at the expense of mental health and she tells us how she broke out from the wellness blogging bubble and moved to a different perspective.

We have an important discussion about how we define 'plant-based diets' and Pixie points out there's a crucial difference between plant-based and vegan. There is enormous flexibility within plant-based diets and we shouldn't conflate them with veganism. Other areas we delve into include: the importance for healthcare professionals to be 'diet neutral'; eating for aesthetic reasons; why dieting for weight loss is a problem; and food obsession, eating disorders and stigmatisation. Pixie also mentions the importance of psychology and self compassion. It's a fantastic episode covering a lot of ground.

Podcast Promotion

I've moved away from most social media but I realise it is still an important part of many people's lives. If you want to share an episode or more on Twitter, Facebook etc then I'd be thrilled.

Even better, why not mention it to a colleague, friend, or family when you next speak to them. In fact, why not give them a call and meet up anyway? All the evidence suggests you'll be healthier and benefit. And, if you can and it's relevant, thanks for mentioning the podcast to them.

Jonathan and Chris interview Pixie Turner, a London-based nutritionist who used to be, according to her, a “wellness wanker”. And then she publicly changed her mind about food.

They discuss her formerly obsessive relationship with nutrition; eating for Instagram; the turning point in her life; the vicious Instagram vegan posse; becoming an inadvertent Trojan horse on social media; why wellness mainly targets women; her thoughts on the carnivore diet; the demonization of carbs; orthorexia; Belle Gibson and the Medical Medium; which nutrition books to trust; how to fight misinformation; and why so many of her clients ask her, “Can I eat this?”
