Description

Caroline hosts a casual podcast for recovering chronic dieters, talking about The F*ck It Diet ® and lots of other random stuff. Caroline chats with experts, answers listener questions, reads Fuckiteer stories, rambles about whatever, and explains her method for getting out of the diet cycle. There will be lots of rambling. There will be lots of conversations with her dog. There was even a one year period when she didn't know why her microphone was so loud. But it WILL be free from diet culture. And it may even help.

A few weeks ago, I posted on instagram about diet culture being a manifestation of white supremacy, and, only after did I realize that it was like throwing some people into the pool before they learned how to swim, especially because I casually mentioned white privilege, in passing, and many people responded saying they were white but did NOT have privilege. And I realized: ah, I did not, take Maria Von Trapp’s advice to start from the very beginning, the very good place to start. So I want to give my overview on privilege and intersectionality: what it is, how to look at it, and how privileges can overlap and intersect. So first: WHAT IS INTERSECTIONALITY: Intersectionality is a theoretical framework for understanding how aspects of a person's social identities can combine to create unique modes of discrimination. Intersectionality identifies injustices that are felt by people due to a combination of factors. (Thank you Wikipedia) Some different factors and identities that can overlap: body size race sexual orientation gender: male vs woman gender expression cis vs trans or nonbinary class or financial situation you’re born into, or make it into and even beauty, or fitting into eurocentric beauty standards, (that is a facet of white supremacy, which we will talk about more later   FAT PHOBIA AND THIN PRIVILEGE We are starting here, because this is the piece I usually talk about as it relates DIRECTLY to dieting and weight loss. We live in a fat phobic world, a world that idolizes, fetishizes, and prioritizes thinner, leaner bodies, which means people who are naturally in thinner bodies have luck - privilege, to naturally exist in the thinner body, and fit in with ease, whereas people in bigger bodies are marginalized and stigmatized. The trickier thing about fatphobia and thin privilege, is because we can diet and exercises and change our bodies (to a certain extent), lots of people think that body size is NOT privilege, we think it’s actually a good measurer of character and responsibility and hard work. But that is ignoring our body’s overall ability to fight back, though, because it fights back over a longer period of time, it isn’t as immediately obvious to us. When it fights back, we assume that’s just us losing our willpower. Naturally thinner people who spend a lot of time working out or thinking about that they eat, think that their body is ALL because of “dedication” and “hard work,” which ignores the fact that at least a big chunk of it, is the fact that their body is meant to be thinner and they don’t happen to be fighting against the body size they are meant to be. They have thin privilege, but chalk it all up to their “no excuses” lifestyle. It’s also ignoring the fact that a lot of people who do successfully keep their weight low, or even lower than their body wants, may have an eating disorder or disordered eating, that happens to be socially acceptable, praised, and admired. (eek!) And it’s ignoring the fact that some people truly are meant to be in bigger bodies, genetically or otherwise, and forcing themselves to be smaller in order to fit in and experience some thin privilege, can be really bad for them mentally and physically. We live in a world where thinness is seen as superior, even morally superior to fatness. And like most privileges, there’s a spectrum, so even someone who doesn’t think of themselves as thin, may have some thin privilege. Even "small fat" people have thin privilege compared to people in super-fat or infinifat bodies. Understanding the Fat Spectrum And, the way OVERLAPPING privileges work, is that even someone who doesn’t have any other privileges of money or race/whiteness or heterosexuality, who is naturally thin, HAS THIN PRIVILEGE, even if they don’t have other privileges, and even if their life has been very very difficult. It means that even throughout all of their struggles, they have no had to deal with the struggles and the ...

What About Alcohol?

What About Alcohol?

2020-05-1142:39

Common question: "So you say that restricting food causes food fixation, what about alcohol? Should I stop restricting it?" The answer isn't straight forward, but the short answer is: food and alcohol are different beasts. So, today I'm sharing my conversation with Amanda White, LPC. This one is about alcohol culture, disordered drinking, and the overlap it can have with diet culture and our relationship with food. This episode, and my perspective, is not anti-alcohol. I am hoping we can all have curiosity around our relationship with alcohol (and everything, really!) And this conversation may be helpful to reflect on your own relationship with alcohol, and our culture's relationship with alcohol too! Follow Amanda White on Instagram! Therapy For Women Website

Let’s Talk About Diabetes

Let’s Talk About Diabetes

2020-03-3001:01:55

We are talking about both type 1 and type 2. Did you know that sugar does not cause diabetes? Not even type 2? Did you know that weight gain does not cause diabetes either? Did you know that the issue with diabetes is that your cells aren't getting sugar, not that you shouldn't eat sugar? Today I'm talking to dietitian and diabetes expert Lauren Newman RD, LD, and busting lots of unhelpful myths about diabetes. In the episode we also break down the difference between type 1 and type 2, but debunk a lot of blame that people with type 2 get. Type 2 is caused by metabolic factors, often genetic or chronic stress related - it’s a dysfunction of the way the body metabolizes sugar. And/or insulin resistance, which means the cells aren’t getting sugar even though it’s in the blood stream. But our cells need sugar to keep us alive. Insulin resistance is not caused by consumption of carbs or sugar or (or higher weight). There are lots and lots fo reasons people might have insulin resistance, one of them, is yo-yo dieting and weight cycling. The other important thing to remember, is that Type 2 diabetes it can and does exist in thin people and people who eat an objectively “healthy diet.” Conversely, lots and lots of people eat a lot of sugar and never get diabetes. People blame it on the carbs or sugar, but it’s the underlying conditions in the first place. Another example, is that exercise is good for insulin resistance, with or without weight loss, but if people start to exercise and lose weight, and their symptoms improve, weight loss tends to gets the credit, when exercise should be getting the credit. Blaming sugar is easy, but it is still missing the mark, and is an oversimplification that can also make people dysfunctional with food which ironically, can exacerbate insulin resistance all on its own.

Plus! At the end, I have a convo with my (weed-loving) friend about coronavirus and... weed & the munchies & disordered eating. (She also is a therapist and has an LMFT!)

Ever since The F*ck It Diet book came out, I've been paying attention to the most commonly asked questions, and trying to address them. And one of the biggest question themes is about weight set point. And the first thing I want to always point out, is that it's a weight set range. Whenever anyone refers to weight set point, the point is actually a weight range where your body feels safest. This is not exactly a newbie question, this is usually a question people ask after they've read the book and start worrying about what this process is going to be like for them, which is understandable. There is usually a thought process that goes something like: "Ok, so you're telling me that my bingeing and food addiction is not actually a food addiction, but more of biological food fixation thanks to food insecurity, past attempts at dieting, diet mentality, food guilt, and the threat of future diets? Ok. And you're telling me that when I get out of the yo-yo, stop restricting, start truly trusting and feeding my body, that my appetite will normalize? OK... And you're telling me that my body has a weight set point where it wants to be, and will settle there if I can just trust my appetite??" Well, again, it's a weight range, not a static point. And with the disclaimer that The F*ck It Diet book will do a way better job of explaining the nuances of this process beyond the 95-word inner monologue synopsis I wrote above, let's get to the common questions about weight set range: HOW MUCH OF A RANGE IS MY WEIGHT SET RANGE? HOW LONG IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO STABILIZE IN MY WEIGHT SET RANGE?!?! HOW WILL I KNOW THAT I'VE SETTLED IN MY WEIGHT SET RANGE???? In a way, I regret all of the focus I have to put on normalizing in a weight set range because it can become, in it's own way, a diet-like mentality. It puts the focus on weight. It makes a promise about weight that people focus on in a way that can undermine healing. I tend to prefer focusing on how allowing food, and eating more food, can calm down fixation on food, compulsive eating, binge eating, feelings of food addiction, and even emotional eating. At the same time, I also understand the focus on weight. I understand that's an essential piece of the puzzle. And if I said: Just eat a lot, gain lots of weight, fuck weight stabilization and frankly: fuck everything and everyone, most people would say: Eh, No thanks. Sounds like anarchy. Though, it should be said that I think that anarchy would be healing in its own right, it's still not really the full picture. Because... what the fuck is going on with our weight? Why do we struggle with weight? Why do we seem to gain weight at the drop of a hat, while other people don't? How does weight work? Of COURSE WE WANT TO KNOW THE ANSWER TO THESE QUESTIONS! And without some sort of assurance that you will have a more stable experience with your eating and weight, I'm not sure many people would take the leap. And, contrary to what The F*ck It Diet's biggest detractors think, I'm not encouraging people to gorge themselves into oblivion just for the freaking sake of it, even though, again, I support it if that's what your soul is calling you towards. Because after being forced to obsess over something as soul sucking as the size of your body for years, fuck everyone, really. But, the truth is, that we are obsessed with food, act out of control with food, and feel addicted to food because of our fear of food and weight. The biggest predictor for future weight gain, weight cycling, and binge eating, is dieting and intentional weight loss. So if what you want is to feel calmer around food, and stop putting your body through the ringer, you've gotta step off the treadmill, figuratively speaking, in the very least. Talking about how feeding yourself can help you stabilize in your weight range is a selling point for TFID and listening to your hunger, because, first of all, it's true, and second,

In this episode, Maddie Deakin (of Messy Health) shares her experience with extreme dieting while she was in nutrition school, being the only larger bodied person in her nutrition class, using dieting as a coping mechanism to feel a sense of control, and her experience recovering from disordered eating in a larger body. She also shares great advice and inspiration for people who are recovering from years of dieting and disordered eating. Maddie Deakin (the mind behind the account Messy Health) is a HAES and Non-Diet Nutritionist (BFoodSc&Nutr) in Australia, and she explores the intersection between food, health, and the body - without dieting. Listen to the episode for my convo with Maddie. Plus! I share a new listener email about their experience, and a story about my dog Molly being in a fight with a tapestry of Jeff Goldblum.

Are you curious about some of the common (and temporary) physical side effects of re-feeding after chronic dieting, an eating disorder, or any other phase of under eating??? When you've been dieting for a long time and finally start eating more, or when you've had an eating disorder and start eating more, most bodies will have uncomfortable physical symptoms (digestive issues, skin issues, etc.) Lots of people take this as an opportunity to freak out, and assume it's a sign that they should go back to restricting. So, wouldn't it be nice to hear that those symptoms are... normal? And to be expected????? Ya! We talk about that (among many other things!) on today's episode.  Today I chat with @DietitianAnna (Anna Sweeney MS, CEDRD-S) about her experience as a dietitian specializing in eating disorder recovery, Health at Every Size®, and Intuitive Eating. But she also shares what it's been like living with chronic illness and disability, and navigating wellness culture her whole life. Listen to our chat and find/follow online: @DietitianAnna AND! I'm doing a Live Free Event with Christy Harrison in Philadelphia, on January 30th, 2020, at 7:15 at Head House Books. SEE YOU THERE.
Let's start 2020 with a F*ck It Diet 101. A Primer. (Again!) My instagram grew by 100,000 followers in 2019. That's an average of 273 new people a day. Big picture, that's fantastic and super exciting. But day to day, it means new people are seeing random, one-line posts that speak to one tiny piece of this whole puzzle, and they are intrigued, but more: they're confused. And instead of saying: ok let me check out this woman's site, podcast, or better yet, book, they ask for me to explain The F*ck It Diet to them, right there, in the comments or direct message. The hardest part is that there is no short answer. It's complicated. It's nuanced. There is a lot to explain!!! Also, when I am writing things for social media I have to make a choice: Am I posting on social media for newbies? Or for people who've read the book and already get it? That's a pretty wide divide, but I kind of have to do both. So if you're new, and confused, a great way to get a basic primer on TFID, is to sign up for the "Free Fun Stuff" right here! I send the beginning of the book, and three free primer lessons. Another really great way to understand WTF The F*ck It Diet is and why I think what I think, and how to actually do it, is to read the book. But also, here is another primer on WHY DIETS DON'T WORK: Our bodies are wired to push us off any diet or restriction - and, even though we tend to think this is a horrible thing, or something we need to overcome and conquer, it's actually a good thing. Our resistance to dieting is a biological advantage for famine survival. But that inherent protection against dieting is why dieting is so hard, and leaves us so obsessed with food. And why we get so hungry. It’s why we can’t stop thinking about food. It's why we binge. And why we almost always gain the weight back. We are wired that way. So, what counts as restriction? Calorie restriction, macronutrient restriction (like keto), time restriction (like intermittent fasting), any over thinking or micromanaging of eating amounts or times or purity, over-exercising, over-thinking and over-worrying about hunger and fullness (yes!), and any  intentional weight loss. Dieting causes food addiction. Well... sort of. This is nuanced. And semantics. Food addiction is both real and ... not very real at all. It's not an addiction in the true sense of the word. But we definitely feel addicted when we are restricted in any way. Even just mentally restricted (more on that soon). It's that same protection against famines I just mentioned. Dieting makes us fixated on food. Chemically. In our brain and in our body.) Dieting and restricting make us feel (and act) addicted to food (and carbs). It feels VERY REAL, but it is just the state we are in when the body is screaming indiscriminately for food. (“PLEASE DON’T LET US DIE THIS WAYYYYY".) Our culture has a disordered relationship to weight. Which gives us a very disordered relationship to food. Our culture is extremely and insidiously fatphobic. What's fatphobia? For our purposes here, compare it to homophobia. A very cultural fear and judgment of certain people. We make assumptions about people. We believe the stereotypes. Not only is this messed up, but it messes up all of our eating - wide scale. Insidiously. Subconsciously. We have to unlearn all the things we’ve learned about weight, especially as it relates to health.  Our relationship to weight is f*cked up, and based on faulty information. Weight is not a direct result of our habits. And you cannot tell someone’s habits or health from looking at them. That widespread belief is simplistic and causes a lot of harm, cruelty, and mistreatment. Our own healthy weight range is very genetic, and can only be manipulated so much, without consequences. This requires more than an instagram post or a blog post to unpack. I recommend lots of further reading on this. Read my book. Research weight stigma.
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! Find Christy: ChristyHarrison.com Food Psych Podcast 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!)
Today's episode is a conversation with anonymous essayist Your Fat Friend! Your Fat Friend writes anonymously about the social realities of life as a very fat person. Her work has been translated into 19 languages and covered around the world.  Listen to our chat (and fast forward to 17 minutes in to jump right in.)
