“Change your clothes, not your body."
I’m slowly working on my list of 40 things to do before I’m 40, and one of the items on my list (# 31) is to "learn about intuitive eating." Last week I found two podcasts that mentioned the topic, along with other subjects I'm interested in including diet culture, the body-positivity movement, health, and more.
Here are links to the segments:
1. Trust Your Body—Cheryl Strayed, Steve Almond, and their guests addressed the "cycle of dieting and binge-eating that plague many American women," as well as a "counter-movement called Body Positive ... The movement promotes fat acceptance and attempts to reverse body-shaming, no matter one's size."
2. Lu Uhrich on Marriage, Body Autonomy, and the Dangers of Pseudo-Diets—the second part of this conversation is about "the oppressive nature of dieting, beauty, and fitness ideals, and why you might still be dieting even if you think you aren't."
One of the best pieces of advice Uhrich offered was this: "change your clothes, not your body."
If you struggle with body image or want to learn about the topics I mentioned above, I recommend listening to the segments.
