Intuitive eating counselor and author Laura Thomas joins us to discuss her new book, Just Eat It; the problems with The Wellness Diet; why subtle levels of weight stigma are so hard to pinpoint and eradicate; why "emotional eating" and turning to food for comfort are falsely demonized in diet culture; why people in the nutrition field often struggle in their own relationships with food; and so much more. Plus, Christy answers a listener question about whether the 12-step model works for food issues. (This episode originally aired on January 14, 2019.)
