In this week’s episode, I’m talking to Vaughn Darst, a public health dietitian specialising in paediatric and adolescent nutrition and eating disorders among under-served populations including trans and gender non-conforming youth, children on the autism spectrum and children with special healthcare needs. We discuss:

✨ Growing up in a world that tells you your body is wrong ✨ Experiencing medical fat phobia ✨ How not being able to express gender identity led to an ED ✨ How common narratives around transitioning often lack nuance ✨ Discussing the multifactorial aspects of health outside of weight ✨ The research on disordered eating in GNC and trans people ✨ The complicated reasons that eating disorders develop in these groups ✨ The unrealistic body image ideals placed on GNC and trans people ✨ Steps providers can take to provide gender affirming care
