Has diet culture become a cult? Aaron and Glenys welcome therapist Dr. Natalie Feinblatt to the show to talk about the similarities between cults and diet culture. As a therapist who specializes in working with people who have left cults, Dr. Feinblatt compares and contrasts cults with dieting, and leaves us with some useful tools to assess if we are caught up in the cult of dieting. This was a fascinating and interesting angle on diet culture and we learned so much in this episode. We think you will too!

Dr. Natalie Feinblatt is a licensed clinical psychologist who sees clients in Los Angeles and virtually.  She specializes in treating addiction, trauma, co-occurring disorders, LGBTQIA clients, and former cult members.  She's been working in the field of mental health for over 15 years at all levels of care, and earned her doctorate at Pepperdine University.  You can learn more about her practice at her website,
