In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, I am honored to be joined by Lucy Aphramor.

Lucy Aphramor, PhD, RD, pioneered HAES in the U.K.’ s National Health Service. She developed the creative HAES course “Well Now,” now available internationally through licensed facilitators, which shows how to practically teach the personal-political-physiological rubric in community health groups. Lucy is widely published, often collaboratively, in health and social science journals, Fat Studies, and critical weight science books. Her work is characterized by a strong commitment to ethics, including naming and addressing the embodied impact of poverty, trauma, and oppression. She speaks regularly to lay, practitioner, and academic audiences.

Together with Linda Bacon, is the co-author of the groundbreaking “Weight Science: Evaluating the Evidence for a Paradigm Shift,” a peer-reviewed study that challenges conventional thinking and has upended complacency in weight-loss research and the book “Body Respect: What Conventional Health Books Get Wrong, Leave Out, and Just Plain Fail to Understand about Weight“.

We talk about

  • her path to becoming a radical dietitian and what that term entails for her
  • how nutrition affects health and the other factors that impact the construct of health
  • carbs, sugar and all the drama around it
  • the setpoint theory
  • health and social justice
  • the costs of society’s anti-fat messages
  • practical self-compassion in our daily lives
  • the difference between body respect and body love
  • and the solutions to how we can begin to create a world where no-one is starved of food, company or dignity!
