If you're even *thinking* about wanting to feel better in your own skin, this is your podcast!

I happened across Whitney's IG and it happened to be the first body positive and fat positive account I'd ever heard of. So glad I started listening to her podcast basically at that same time. I listened to all 37 episodes (that exist at this time) in two months. My mind was blown at the beginning and as I kept listening, it helped solidify what I needed to hear while I've been on my journey to heal my own body image issues and my relationship with food. I love that she consistently talks about the intersectionality of all the factors that contribute to issues such as these. I can't recommend this podcast enough!

Love this pod and Whitney!

I always end an episode having learned something new. I’ve loved learning more about intuitive eating (not just what we think it is from IG models) and about the health at every size movement. I also feel like it’s helped me learn a little about myself too. I love that she isn’t afraid to get real and emotional. Keep doing what you do Whitney!

Rank #9: #22: Nuance of Weight Loss & Celery Juice with Dr. Joshua Wolrich

Podcast cover
Read more

Go lose weight. Fat is bad. Do these sound familiar? The problem with becoming healthy is that the definition of healthy is completely different from person to person. In the studio today is Dr. Joshua Wolrich, who has recently become an anti-diet and health at every size advocate on social media. Over the past few years he has become acutely aware of the problematic nature of both losing weight and also encouraging it. He now focuses on improving one's relationship with food through addressing #nutribollocks and reminding us that there is so much more to health than our weight on the scales. There are times when weight loss can be beneficial to health, but how do we decide what goes in that crossover gray area? It’s a conversation that needs to be had! 

Whitney shares:

  • Problems with too much information and control on your journey
  • Making the change away from the problematic view of weight loss
  • Having the unconditional permission to eat all foods with natural moderation
  • Where weight loss and health cross over
  • Reasons that fad diets shouldn’t be compared
  • Lack of informed consent when dieting
  • Knowing the balance of risk and reward when making any decisions
  • The myths surrounding celery juice and where they come from
