The “Bite Sized Education” Series

In this episode we discuss the hot topic of people’s proposed “weight loss success stories” and the confusion that occurs within these stories and messaging. We unpack the layers of thin privilege and societal body hierarchies that diet culture is built on. We give tips and tricks on how to respond to comments and conversations about weight loss or changed bodies. Finally, we help listeners look beyond the external body change and identify how making peace with internal conflicts or focusing on emotional and mental self care is the true success.

Our amazing listeners also wrote in and in this episode we will answer the following question:

Dear Mom Genes,

I gained a lot of weight during my pregnancies and recently I dedicated myself to self care to lose the weight. I feel so much better and can now run around the backyard with my kids without getting winded. You preach a lot about being anti diet and body acceptance, but weight loss did help me. Is that wrong? Should I feel guilty? Love, Weight Loss Mom
