Podcast in the Body Image Series: Why It’s So Hard to Quit Diet Culture

In this episode of Eat the Rules, I’m continuing the body image series, talking about why it’s so hard to quit diet culture.

I also explore the addictive nature of diets, why this makes it so hard to break free, and what life is like without it.

In This Episode, I Chat About

  • How dieting is like a drug in our culture,
  • That there’s an anticipation of this perfect life and perfect body on the radar that keeps us hooked to dieting with a false sense of fulfilment,
  • That there’s grief, sadness, and loneliness associated with letting go of dieting,
  • Why community support is so important in breaking free of diet culture,
  • That the fear of the unknown is at the root of why it’s so hard to let go of dieting,
  • That dieting, and the identity as a dieter, is a false sense of security and armor that holds us back from having deeper and more real relationships with the people in our lives,
  • How this is an opportunity to find new coping mechanisms that will actually help you process your feelings and feel better about yourself, regardless of your size,
  • What life is like without dieting,
  • The freedom of eating without guilt,
  • How fulfilment is different from happiness,
  • That it’s not about having no emotional discomfort, it’s about learning to be with ourselves through the highs and lows,
  • Plus so much more!
