#80 - What If Weight Loss Could Actually Help Your Situation?
Show Notes

This week, we're answering the question, “What if weight loss could actually help my situation?” And if you've ever found yourself wondering about that, you’re not alone. Maybe you understand that health is more complicated than just our personal behaviors, and you've realized that the “thin ideal” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. But some things still feel more complicated. Because wouldn’t weight loss actually help when it comes to finding clothes that fit, avoiding weight stigma at the doctor and other areas of life, being able to travel or go to the theater, and a whole host of other problems? If this sounds familiar, this episode is for you!

In this episode, we're talking about:

  • why intentional weight loss isn't a long-term solution
  • why it's not enough to just quote diet statistics when these questions come up
  • what intentional weight loss & get-rich-quick schemes have in common
  • why it's important to honor body autonomy in these conversations
  • what a better long-term solution actually is
  • and more!
