223-Anti-Diet with Christy Harrison

In today’s episode, we’ll explore about anti-diet movement with Christy Harrison

Diet is quickly becoming the dirtiest word in wellness.

The anti-diet movement is growing very, very rapidly.

But what does it mean “anti-diet”?

Anti-diet means anti-diet culture. Diet Culture is the system of oppression that promotes thinness and equates it to health and moral virtue. It promotes weight loss as a mean of attaining a higher status and demonize certain ways of eating while elevating others.

However, anti-diet doesn’t mean anti-dieter. It doesn’t mean shaming people who diet. Dieter is, in fact, acting “as expected” in a society laden by weight stigma which marginalizes larger bodies.

The Anti Diet is a movement raising against diet culture, not dieters.

I think in many ways it’s a female fight because women are so often targeted by the diet industry. Women, especially, end up tying their self-worth to how they look, and the diet industry teaches us that that’s what matters most as a woman.

In today’s episode, we will explore the anti-diet movement with Christy Harrison, MPH, RD, CDN, an anti-diet registered dietitian nutritionist and certified intuitive eating counselor based in New York City. Christie hosts the podcast Food Psych and recently released Anti-Diet: Reclaim Your Time, Money, Well-Being, and Happiness Through Intuitive Eating book.

What you’ll learn listening to this episode of anti-diet:

  • How Christy’s food journey led her to write this book
  • Why we have a diet culture epidemic NOT an obesity epidemic…
  • The history of diet culture
  • Why diet culture is morphing into wellness diet
  • Best buying interest (fear) versus detriment buying (love)
