F Your Diet for people who are tired of all the bullshit and crave real stories. This is a space to share and explore conversations around body, food, movement and perfection. It is a place to call out diet culture and the marketing that goes into it. It is a place to stop labeling EVERYTHING we do in life as good vs. bad and accept that we are all just doing our best.
Why listen? We aren't "fine" everything is not always "Okay" The diet industry keeps growing and we keep inventing new diets ("lifestyle changes") to follow that are short term fixes. We say we want girls to be strong, empowered, bold but we keep ourselves small in voice and believe we have to physically always become smaller to be "good" for our "health" because our "health" has to do with a number on the scale and how many grams of sugar we eat per day. We don't always admit that because "we don't diet" but, we do. We control, limit, restrict and hinder and then we wonder why girls turn around and do the same.
If we want girls to be strong tomorrow, let's start with the conversations we have NOW. Let's be honest about when it started. We are all the same. We all struggle - no matter if it's food or just with life. We all have ups and downs. The power of the "me too" can be transformative and healing. This is a podcast for community and conversations that make a difference and give people a space to feel heard and understood, but also a place to break the cycle of everyday weight stigma and BS conversations about health. I want those little girls you know to grow up in a world where they aren't constantly being told they aren't good enough because of how they look or act.
I won't give you the same story about following your passion that you hear elsewhere (don't want to? great - don't! #youdoyou). I am bringing people together to share, laugh and connect. Hearing someone share an experience that makes you shout out "ME TOO!!" can be the exact thing to help you feel less alone. I believe everyone has an important story to tell and life experience to share. Your voice matters. There are women ALL around the world that have felt/said/experienced/thought the same things. We just need to open up, share and listen.
