Rank #1: Ep. 22: Lose the Bullsh** & Liberate your Body - Jes Baker

Podcast cover
Read more
Jes Baker (@themilitantbaker) has been a major figure in the fat-positive community for years beginning with her "Attractive and Fat" photo campaign as backlash against Abercrombie and Fitch's anti-fat advertising. Since then, her refreshingly authentic voice has garnered over 77 thousand followers on instagram as well as a wildly popular personal blog. Jes has built her foundation on the idea that #fatgirlsCAN and she continues to shatter society's expectations for fat people with equal parts outspoken advocacy and brazen visibility. I loved getting a chance to sit down with this inspirational woman to talk about complicated topics from "Lisa Frank bopo" to her relationship with movement. Take a listen and join the conversation with us on instagram!    "Every single person right now is being targeted, when it comes to self-esteem and body image, women have historically been the targets of marketing and advertising selling these beauty and weight loss products." - Jes Baker

This Week on the Every Body Podcast:

  • How Jes Baker's online presence took off with her "Attractive and Fat" campaign against Abercrombie & Fitch.
  • Discussions on class as it relates to farm culture and how that relates to current gender roles.
  • How the new "health is the new skinny" trend plays into diet culture. 
  • The ways wellness culture is exclusive and damaging to the vast majority of people.
  • Jes's personal recovery process as it relates to her childhood experience with poverty.
  • Jes talks about her complicated relationship with movement and intuitive eating. 
  • The ways Jes connects with her body and finds happiness and fulfillment. 
  • How writing her upcoming memoir, "Landwhale" (May 2018), has played a role in the connection between her mental and physical journey.
  • The ways the "Lisa Frank bopo" movement can fall short for many people.

Rank #2: Ep. 25: Secrets behind the 'Biggest Loser' - Kai Hibbard

Podcast cover
Read more

Kai was first cast into the spotlight through her participation in, and subsequent denunciation of the weight loss game show The Biggest Loser. Going through the program, she realized the negative impact the show had, not only on her own life, but on society in general. Vowing to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem, Kai has fought, often as the lone voice, against unrealistic and damaging message in the media regarding our bodies in general. Over time that struggle has been featured in countless magazines and newscasts, both domestically and internationally, ranging from The Huffington Post, Time Magazine, Good Morning America, ABC News, CBS News, E!, Star Magazine, US Weekly, People, TMZ, The NY Times, The NY Post, Inside Edition, Redbook, Access Hollywood, FoxNews,The Globe, Jezebel, Huffington Post Live and Upworthy, where Kai’s honest, straight forward approach to her own story never fails to shine through.

Most of Kai’s time is spent juggling family and professional life. When not writing for publications like xoJane, working on her books, speaking, chiming in on body shaming as a contributor for CNN, being interviewed for various outlets or keeping people encouraged on social media, she is reading studies, finishing on her MSW at UNE, preparing new presentations, starting a new podcast, planning the opening of her private psychotherapy practice with telecounseling services, and plotting ways to keep her kiddo in bed at bedtime.

In addition she is adjusting to life with chronic illnesses, rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. She is also very tired.

Rank #6: 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."

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 #9: Ep. 26: Eff Your Fitspo - Sarah Vance

Podcast cover
Read more

Sarah Vance (@sarevance) began focusing on the body when she began walking in her parents' footsteps by competitively body-building. After spiraling with restriction, disordered eating and body dysmorphia, she decided she needed to realign her relationship with her body. She created #effyourfitspo and challenges ideas of "health" and "strength" that are simply diet culture with a new name. Now, as a health care professional, she keeps a vigilant eye out for fat-phobia in the health care industry. We covered a lot of ground, but there's always room to share more and ask more. Take a listen and join the conversation with us on instagram! 

"[Body positivity is] becoming more problematic because now fitspo culture and diet companies and diet culture are now co-opting body positivity... then you have a system in a culture that has now utilized something that was in the first place-- body positivity-- that was actually trying to dismantle the system that is now using it."

- Sarah Vance

This Week on the Every Body Podcast:

  • Sarah's first exposure to body consciousness with her body-building family. 
  • The internalization of body dysmorphia as our bodies naturally change with age and experience.
  • How ideas of health are tainted with fat-phobia.
  • Sarah's experience with restriction and dieting beginning with her decision to hire a "fitness coach" for competitive  body building. 
  • A look at diet culture in "healthism" and fitspo culture.
  • The ways increased exposure to social media amplifies fitspo culture.
  • How "fitspo" started as a reaction to "thinspo," but still propels diet culture.
  • Sarah's #effyourfitspo passion and realigning our priorities toward respecting our bodies.
  • How Sarah began identifying as a "health nut" and the challenges with letting that go and rediscovering her relationship with her body.
  • The sneaky layers behind diet culture that Sarah had to work through to overcome her disordered eating.
  • How Sarah became and advocate for body positivity. 
  • The steps Sarah took to step away from her superficial body obsession.
  • What it's like being in the health care industry as an advocate for HAES.
  • The merits of asking "why" to challenge peoples' biases and stigmas. 
  • Our westernized relationship with death and how that feeds into the flawed health and wellness industry.
