Christy Harrison & her book Anti-Diet

Christy Harrison & her book Anti-Diet

In Episode 61, I chat with Christy Harrison, MPH, RD, CDN. She is an anti-diet registered dietitian nutritionist and certified intuitive eating counselor, and her book ANTI-DIET is coming out December 24th, 2019! (So… like, now.) 

I read the book early, and it’s great. It’s a super comprehensive look at why obsessing over what you eat is bad for your health. If you’ve already read my book, I think you’d love it as further reading! (It’s super aligned with The F*ck It Diet, obviously!)

Show Notes:

00:00 – Hello and I technically changed the name of my podcast again, and this might be a mistake.

3:52 – My Chat with Christy! We talk about the social justice end of being anti-diet, what people usually get wrong with intuitive eating, Christy answers a listener question about pre-diabetes, and about medication that causes appetite increase or weight gain, and a lot more!

Christy’s Book, Anti Diet

48:35 – Whoops I forgot to mention that Christy and I are doing an event together in Philadelphia on January 30th at Head House Books, at 7:15 (it’s free!). It’s her Philly book launch, in conversation with… me! Come hear us chat and get signed books. Head House Books Events

51:00 – Goodbye, and also maybe soon I’ll talk more about “Moongate,” the time on instagram where 3 people told me that talking about the full moon made my book lose credibility in their eyes. I can’t wait to talk about how science and spirituality are not mutually exclusive, and how black and white thinking, and science absolutism feeds eating disorder mentality. (Also… I literally never even said anything definitive about the full moon so: pshhhhhhhh!)
