Episode 60 - Nike Plus-Size Mannequin Does NOT Promote Obesity

Jun 26, 2019 31:42

Description:

Nike recently unveiled a new plus-size line of athletic clothing and with it, a plus-size mannequin on which to display the clothing. One journalist railed against this move as "promoting obesity." In this episode, Aaron and Glenys talk about the reaction to the mannequin, both good and bad, how promoting obesity is not actually "a thing", and the role that internalized weight stigma may have played in this reaction. 

Show notes:

We're not linking to the original article because it's bias AF, and you can google the Tanya Gold article. Instead, here are some great articles clapping back.

Jun 11, 2019 49:34

Description:

Aaron and Glenys have been watching TV and want to tell you all about it. Our hosts discuss the most recent TV shows that seem tailor-made for those of us craving fat-positive entertainment, specifically the TV shows Dietland (season 1 now streaming on Hulu) and Shrill (also on Hulu). They breakdown what worked, what didn't, what they liked, and what they're hoping for more of.

Episode 58 - This is Body Liberation with Jes Baker

May 30, 2019 48:26

Description:

Aaron and Glenys are excited to welcome to the podcast Jes Baker, author of the books Landwhale and Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls: A Handbook for Unapologetic Living. Jes Baker is a positive, progressive, and magnificently irreverent force to be reckoned with in the realm of self-love advocacy and mental health. She is internationally known for preaching the importance of body liberation, hard conversations, strong coffee, and even stronger language. Jes burst onto the body image scene when she created her own ads mocking Abercrombie & Fitch for discriminating against all body types - a move that landed her on the Today Show and garnered a loyal following for her raw, honest, and attitude-filled blog missives. In this fantastic episode, she tells us about her revelation that she hadn't been a fat child, turning insults into cool nicknames, and how talking about mental health can be healing.

May 17, 2019 48:03

Description:

Glenys and Aaron welcome registered dietitian and eating disorder specialist Jennifer McGurk to the show to discuss the topic of emotional eating.  In this episode, we talk about the differences between emotional eating and binge eating, and also what they both have in common.

We also talk about the importance of having many coping tools in your toolbox in addition to eating. We think you will love this episode that gets into the nitty gritty of the emotional side of eating!

Dr. G is also the author of the book Sick Enough, a Guide to the Medical Complications of Eating Disorders. She talked to us about her journey to becoming a HAES-aligned doctor, and how she realized that HAES is the only ethical way to treat patients, especially those in larger bodies.

We think everyone will benefit from listening to this podcast - patients and doctors alike.
