What is diet culture? Why don’t diets work for me? Is this diet even healthy?
If any of these questions sound familiar, this episode is for you. The Diet Dump’s first episode dives into what diet culture is, why diets fail, and whether or not dieting is actually healthy. I give you the evidence on why our bodies are designed to resist deprivation, and why we are actually harming our bodies when we diet.
Together, we can check the facts on diet culture. This is wellness with awareness.
