Dietitians Unplugged Podcast

Welcome to the Dietitians Unplugged Podcast with Aaron Flores and Glenys Oyston.  Join us as we explore the idea of health and wellness from a new perspective. Each episode we will discuss topics that we hope to help you improve your health, body image and fitness without obsessing on the scale or counting calories.  We believe in Health at Every Size®, Intuitive Eating, and body positivity and we want to help you build the confidence to ditch the scale, and embrace your health without shaming your body.

Jan 4, 2019

It’s the new year and self-improvement is on the minds of many. For some, that translates to going on a diet and weight loss. Aaron and Glenys are here to tell you why that might not be such a great idea, and what you can do instead. They discuss the failure rate of weight loss diets, why the body’s biology and psychology fight weight loss, and how diet culture upholds body oppression. This rant will get you fired up for the year and ready to take on self-care from a place of true self-compassion.
