How are bodies political? The vibrant dietitian and podcast host Aaron Flores, RDN (of Dietitians Unplugged) joins Opal’s Nutrition Director Julie Church, RDN, CEDRD-S, CD and host Carter Umhau, LMHC to share his feminist perspective on the politics of being in a fat body. Aaron talks about how being fat (as a cis, white man) has given him access to understanding the lack of safety people with more marginalized identities experience being in their bodies. Carter, Aaron, and Julie will explore male body image, fat phobia, privilege, and the entirely unethical dieting scheme Weight Watchers has been recently marketing to children.
