Whitney’s podcast has allowed me to both establish a base in body appreciation and intuitive eating, but also enabled me grow my understanding of diet culture and size injustice as a whole. I am not proud to say that for years, I projected my own insecurities into body judgements on others. This podcast has really opened my eyes onto the diverse size spectrum and humbled me to understand that we are all just humans trying to live our lives free of judgement and restriction. Thank you for such a wonderful podcast, it has helped me so much.

Great podcast!!

Rank #10: #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
  • 2 things that medical professionals hate
  • Everything wrong with believing pseudoscience
  • Socioeconomic aspects of different diets
  • Benefits and setbacks of bringing your own research to your doctor

In this interview, she commits herself to ditching dieting for good and talks about why it took her so long to fully dive into Intuitive Eating. We talk about the pressure she feels as an online sex worker to keep shrinking her body, and why it's so important for her to finally quit the diet/binge cycle.

During the intro Whitney speaks about

  • How she has officially gone full time with her business!
  • Her own journey to the next level of coaching
  • How she doesn’t want to talk about food or nutrition any more
  • The things she DOES want to talk about

During the interview Whitney and Lena discuss:

  • The spectrum of body image issues
  • The evolution of online sex work
  • Building strength against the things people say online
  • Thinking in the long term with diets
  • Reassessing your motivations around food
  • Engaging with girls on social media who comment on her photos
  • Having the moment of clarity that you need help
  • How has Lena’s relationship with intimacy corelate with food?
  • The issues surrounding younger girls in the industry
  • How Lena wants to be the person she needed when she was younger
