Rank #2: Ep. 14: Radical Dietician - Lucy Aphramor

Podcast cover
Read more

EB014  The Radical Dietician - Lucy Aphramor 

Lucy Aphramor is the Radical Dietician and the Naked Dietician. She believes we must fundamentally change the way we talk about health. In her Well Now approach, social justice and equality become the center and beginning of every conversation about health. For example, how can we talk about food and exercise without talking about access? Her approach integrates social factors, pays attention to trauma, and supports people to improve their overall wellbeing. The Well Now approach has effectively helped people of all shapes and sizes manage health conditions such as heart disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), high blood pressure and so much more. Additionally, she has effectively helped hundreds of people overcome body shame, eating disorders, and depression by staying committed  to promoting respect, dignity, and equality for all. 

Lucy was the figurehead at the Health at Every Size movement and is co-author of the book Body Respect with Linda Bacon. 

She joins me today to discuss her current model - Well Now - and what has inspired her to become a dietician. She shares her insights on how the stress of prejudice can play a role in health, how she brought the Health at Any Size approach to the National Health Service, and the impact historical trauma can have on health and so much more. This episode also uses clips from Lucy's poetry performance, The Naked Dietician.  

“Telling your story to a caring witness has a metabolic impact... that switches off the stress response.”

- Lucy Aphramor

This Week on the Every Body Podcast: 

  • The importance of looking at all parts of a person’s story struggling to overcome an eating disorder 
  • Studies that show that our health behaviors are between 5% to 25% of the difference in health inequalities 
  • Why finding a way to bring social justice into the healthcare system is important 
  • How changing the language around weight loss and weight correction can impact body positivity and self-esteem challenges around the world 
  • How thinking about well-being from a justice, power, and historical trauma lens can impact the way we think about health 
  • How Well Now helps people get away from the binary mindset about what’s healthy and what’s not healthy 
  • Conversations that need to be happening in our society 
  • Where she believes intervention needs to start

Rank #3: Ep. 23: Killer Fat & Problems with the "Obesity Epidemic" -PART ONE - Dr. Natalie Boero

Podcast cover
Read more

Dr. Natalie Boero is an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at San Jose State University. She joins Every Body this week to discuss the ways our society pigeon holes obesity as a personal problem for the individual rather than examining the wider socioeconomic scope (access to good health care, food deserts, safe places to play and be active)  and its effects on public health. Dr. Boero discusses how she began in the field with her first book, Killer Fat: Media, Medicine and Morals in the American Obesity Epidemic. She explains the problem with medicalizing non-medical instances such as weight or violence with words like "epidemic" which cause panic and risky preventative measures. It was such a pleasure to hear Dr. Boero's thoughts and research on everything from obesity myths to the privilege of "the good fatty." Take a listen and join us in the conversation with us!

"My being the 'good fatty' probably has a lot to do with my class and race privilege in the sense that I have the resources to do certain things or I have the absence of other privileges that sort of blunt some of the other stigmas that I have experienced... we shouldn't judge moral worth based on health."

- Dr. Natalie Boero

This Week on the Every Body Podcast:

  • How Dr. Boero began her study into the "obesity epidemic" with her dissertation. 
  • How the term "obesity epidemic" was coined.
  • The ways that weight bias has become a scapegoat in blaming minority groups for their own disadvantages.
  • The effects of socioeconomics on weight and health. 
  • The correlation between chronic dieting and food restriction in the last 70 years with the general increase in the weight of Americans. 
  • The problematic ways we produce and distribute food globally. 
  • How focusing on fatness distracts from the larger public interest (i.e. psychological effects of fat stigma, access to safe places to play/be active, etc).
  • The extremes that our culture falls into ("epidemic," "cleanse," "addict," etc) in the name of "health."
  • "The good fatty" and myths about "human value being predicated on health."

Big Gal Yoga with Valerie Sagun 

Valeria Sagun took her first crack at yoga in a college course back in 2011 and now challenges over 152,000 instagram followers to start looking at their bodies through a more positive lens. Valerie (@biggalyoga) joins us this week with friend and co-bopo pal Anna Chapman (@iamannachapman) to talk about how their vastly different backgrounds led them both to a place where they could celebrate their size and encourage others to do the same. Valerie's new book, Big Gal Yoga, dives deeper into her life's story as well as her her yoga tips and practices. The endearing dynamic between these two has got to be some of my favorite #relationshipgoals to date. Take a listen and join the discussion with us!

"Finding that calmness within yoga that I hadn't had before; the simple movement, or just moving your body, can change your mental outlook on things."

- Valerie Sagun

This Week on the Every Body Podcast:

  • A look at how Valerie Sagun (@BigGalYoga) and Anna Chapman (@iamannachapman) met and hit it off. 
  • Valerie's background as a "big gal" of color in a family that that differed from tradition western ideas of beauty.
  • How Anna dealt with fat phobia within her own family. 
  • Valerie and Anna discuss changing bodies in the fat-positive community and being supportive through it all, not just the bigger end of the spectrum. 
  • Advice for those struggling with getting into a physical practice with yoga.

Rank #8: BONUS - Follow up with Lucy Aphramor

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode is a follow up to Episode 14 with Lucy Aphramor. I asked if you had questions for her and some wonderful questions were posted on Instagram. Here are some of the answers. Enjoy!

Questions answered in this Bonus episode: 

jilllepire Is it ever okay to try to change your physical body while being body positive? If so, how does one do that without being sucked into diet mindset?

wee_foodies I’d love to hear more from her around the evidence base on the biological impact of weight stigma and ways to challenge the “tackling obesity” conversation in public health.

wanderingdjinn Does Lucy have a script for confronting one's parents about the damage they've done by commenting on one's weight and appearance almost daily, starting at a very young age? I've let go of a lot of my anger towards them and I'm in a better place, but I worry that they're continuing to make weight-related comments to my much younger cousins, and will start on my nieces in a couple of years, if they haven't already. I really feel I should speak up to protect them, at the very least by no longer hiding all the self-destructive things I've done as a result of the self-loathing for which they planted the seeds. My fear, of course, is that they won't believe me, will insist they were in the right, and that I was/am just being too sensitive.

fatbodypeace Will those poems in print somewhere?

littletulipsco l'd like to know how Lucy thinks we can build our self compassion in really practical ways (like a list that I can follow!) And also if it's okay to want to lose weight. It feels like if you were fully accepting of your body you *shouldn't* want to change it. But I was at a kindful eating workshop with Lucy and she was all about questioning *should* self talk. Does that make sense? Thankyou!

Body-centered psychotherapist and certified Hakomi practioner, Carmen Cool helps people end the cycle of dieting and overeating, once and for all.  Along the way, she helps them unravel their body stories and learn to trust their bodies and themselves.  

Her own journey to recovery, partnered with her sister’s death of an eating disorder, makes her even more passionate about her work and a zealous advocate for Health at Every Size.  

Carmen joins me today to discuss the nonprofit organization she founded where she partnered with teenagers as they help and address the body struggles in schools, communities, and other circles of influence. She also shares how active engagement in activism helps in her client’s healing process and how taking the change on a societal level helps achieve true freedom from the diet culture.  

“I don’t think you can recover from an eating disorder and try to lose weight at the same time.”  

– Carmen Cool

  1. Ask yourself, “How do they get in the way of me seeing others clearly?” 
  1. Ask yourself, “What do I need to do to unlearn my biases?”
