The Biggest Loser, Friends, and Bridget Jones have a LOT to answer to when it comes to body image! In the fifth episode of Death to Diets, Vinny Welsby and I are talking about the tv shows and movies that did a number on our self-esteem. Have things gotten better recently or is it the same old BS, and were there ANY good shows from the ’00s that helped with body image?
We are exploring whether food is toxic and challenging the notion of food addiction in this rebroadcast of the Death To Diets mini-series. We also look at the new Jonathan Van Ness show called Getting Curious where they answered the question “Why Do I Love Snacks So Much?” Instead of a delightful foray into the wonderful world of snacks, this episode took a dark turn into debunked science from 1996, fatphobia, and food shaming. Fun! Vinny Welsby and I break down the BS around it and other “toxic” food myths.
