I was a guest on the Podcast Thoughts from the Couch where I debunked myths about trendy diets. We discuss better ways to achieve weight loss and/or weight gain and how to develop love for our bodies. Justine and I collaborate in identifying how harmful certain fad diets can be on our physical and mental health. I also shared my philosophy on sustainable and alternative options to living a healthier life and building a positive relationship with food.
