037 ⎮ How Diet Culture Can Kill You and Prioritizing Health Over Weight Loss
Oct 30, 2019
Is the pursuit of the thin ideal killing you?
Are you afraid to see the doctor because you believe your body isn't acceptable by mainstream medical standards?
Do you struggle with how to improve your health WITHOUT wanting to change your weight?
Well, you're not alone!
In this week's two-part episode with my friend, Tamsen Horton, we discuss her near-death experience that led to a diagnosis of late-onset Type 1 Diabetes in her 40s and how this one experience has transformed how she looks at health, weight loss, and child feeding.
In this interview, we discuss:
How competitive figure skating affected Tamsen's relationship with food and her body
How she did NOT develop an eating disorder
How much money she wasted on products to change food and body
How diet culture almost killed her... literally.
How a near death experience changed her vision of health forever
How she's adjusted to a new diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes
How she feeds herself and her two young children
