On today’s episode of Diet Starts Tomorrow, Lauren provides Emily with an update on her gym journey while sharing an elaborate theory she has on the 3 phases of working out. How can we tell if we are actually working out for health and not to shrink ourselves? Then, they close on a Dear DST from a listener who is struggling to accept her thin, fine hair. Is it possible to be body neutral even if you hate how your hair looks in a certain photo? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
On today’s episode of Diet Start Tomorrow, Emily and Lauren review a strange new trend on social media where people are joking about having just an iced coffee for breakfast or an espresso martini for dinner. What is the punchline here, people?? Then, they launch into a Food-Pinion segment brought to you by Impossible Foods where Lauren declares Impossible meatballs to be just as good if not better than regular meatballs. Sure, this is a branded segment but Lauren is prepared to die on this meatball hill. Finally, the two close us out by reviewing Sam Smith’s bold statement on the Met Gala’s red carpet about the need for more inclusive sizing. A clip of this moment was posted to the Everything’s Fine Instagram page and it REALLY pissed off some internet trolls (go to therapy plz, internet) but SZA clapped back at the fatphobia in the comment section. Thank you SZA, please come on the show, we love you! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
On today’s episode of Diet Starts Tomorrow, Lauren gives Emily an update on her return to the GYM. Even though there was some anxiety about working out in public as someone in a bigger body, Lauren was pleasantly surprised that people at the gym really couldn’t care less. Praise be. We close the episode out with Lauren reviewing her gym goalz which include improved mood, energy, sleep, longevity and more power when it comes to the bane of her existence, subway stairs. Turns out there are plenty of reasons to work out that aren’t weight loss; wish someone told us when we were teens! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
On today’s episode of Diet Starts Tomorrow, Emily and Lauren are so thrilled to welcome published author, lawyer turned journalist and Real Housewife Of New Jersey, Jackie Goldschneider to the podcast! She walks us through her many phases of restrictive eating habits which eventually led to a serious case of anorexia. Now in recovery, Jackie shares how she’s been able to better enjoy and experience her life while also commiserating about how it can be triggering to see many of her friends now making the choice to take weight loss drugs. Finally the three close on a fun game of “I’d Try It / I Don’t Buy It” when it comes to the current “wellness” trends. Thank you again Jackie for being so open and vulnerable!

On today’s episode of Diet Starts Tomorrow, Emily and Lauren are chatting about lipid panels and all the feels that come up when you have to get your blood drawn. Don't worry, according to Lauren's therapist, it's normal to feel like your 8 year old self when the needles come out. Then, they talk about taking vitamins and how epically confusing it all is especially for women in their 30’s who want to stay on top of their health. Finally, they close us out with a Taste Test of some allegedly nutrient dense chewable vitamins. (No, not gummies unfortunately.) Tune in to hear their reactions to what it actually tastes like to chew on some turmeric and ginger. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
On today’s episode of Diet Starts Tomorrow, Emily and Lauren discuss Billie Eilish’s recent interview with Rolling Stone where she talks about how she uses sex to decompress, either with a partner or solo. This leads into a discussion about the public's pervasive and CREEPY obsession with overanalyzing the bodies of pop stars. There’s a reason why Eilish is known for her oversized looks, and it’s not just because they’re trendy af. Nobody is off limits including Lana Del Rey, Selena Gomez, and even Taylor Swift, and let's not forget every millennial woman’s Roman Empire, the iconic tabloid photo of Jessica Simpson in high-waist jeans. Emily and Lauren talk about how this gave us all a collective sense of dysmorphia, and close on how it specifically has affected their own senses of self. Learn more about your ad choices.

On today’s episode of Diet Starts Tomorrow, Lauren shares a life-altering Self Care Share with Emily about her decision to leave college comedy shows in the past. How do we know if we’re doing something because we actually want to or if it’s because we like the image of it all? Then, Emily shares a recent uncomfortable moment from a family seder where a loved one referenced her weight loss in an inappropriate fashion. What’s the best way to navigate these sticky situations while also showing compassion for ourselves in the moment? Finally the two discuss the choice to not restrict or fast for certain religious holidays if you’ve struggled with eating disorders in the past. Is that okay? Spoiler: yes.

On today’s episode of Diet Starts Tomorrow, Emily and Lauren welcome registered dietician Jenna Werner to talk all about dairy intolerance and colostrum, the hottest new "wellness" trend.

Is it okay to have soy milk in your coffee but cheese on your eggs? Thankfully, Jenna answers all these questions and provides some much needed levity for navigating the ever-evolving wellness trends we see on social media. Learn more about your ad choices.

On today’s episode of Diet Starts Tomorrow, Emily and Lauren recap HBO Max’s “Brandy Hellville & The Cult Of Fast Fashion” This brand has been a hot topic of discussion on this very podcast in episodes past and now it’s a cultural conversation so of course we had to dive in. The two discuss how the documentary brilliantly utilizes the zeitgeist of Brandy Mellville to help educate viewers on the horrors of fast fashion. Beyond that, we learn about the racist, antisemitic, fatphobic and sexist business practices that the owner utilizes. The two point out the brand’s evil genius methods of how they were able to bottle and sell the specific feminine teenage desire of belonging. So now what do we do? Tune in!

On Today’s Episode of Diet Starts Tomorrow, Emily and Lauren recap Oprah’s recent TV special “Shame, Blame, and The Weight Loss Revolution”. They watched it so you don’t have to and they are both traumatized but also somehow laughing? Segment by segment, they recap what was said and then provide some context and their honest reactions. Confusion abounds. Finally they close with some statements from experts who found the special to be problematic. This episode is a bit of a wild ride and emotions run high so the hosts did just want to share a quick note: “We definitely do not pass judgment on anyone taking these drugs for weight loss. Not even a little bit. We just found the whole way this special was done to be manipulative, confusing and shame-inducing.” https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/1555137 https://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/03/opinion/our-imaginary-weight-problem.html Learn more about your ad choices.

On today’s episode of Diet Starts Tomorrow, Emily shares her Food Pinion that weird salads are the best salads. Lauren mostly agrees but then a debate breaks out about fruit in salad. Is it just a weird holdover from the 90’s or totally delicious? Then, they read a Dear DST from a listener who is wondering what to do about her child’s pro-diet culture classroom. Can parents actually affect change in their children’s schools or should they just focus on the at-home environment? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
On today’s episode of Diet Starts Tomorrow, Emily and Lauren interview Co-Founder of Intuitive Eating, Elyse Resch. Can you believe it?! In this incredibly candid interview, Elyse walks us through the roadblocks of pursuing weight loss, the benefits of Intuitive Eating, and what the “Age Of Ozempic” means for all of this. She also tackles the concept of ob*sity being a disease and offers up astounding stats on longevity as it correlates with body size. This episode is highly educational and even emotional at times.

On today’s episode of Diet Starts Tomorrow, Lauren walks Emily through her recent alcohol epiphanies and quandaries. First there was boy sobriety.. Now is it just regular sobriety? Is it possible to still feel hungover when you’re alcohol free? What’s going on here?! Then, the two review a recent article from HighSnobiety “Eating With Our Noses: On Gourmand Perfumes, Diet Culture & The Danger Of Smelling Sweet” by Alexandra Pauly. Is it coincidence that perfumes which smell like food are popular again just like in the early 2000’s when diet culture was ablaze? Something isn’t passing the literal smell test here.

On today’s episode of Diet Starts Tomorrow, Emily and Lauren share a fun nutrition hack they saw online which inspires both mindful eating and abundance. All you need to know is that chocolate is involved. Then, Lauren channels Barbara Walters for a deep dive into Emily’s history with dieting, weight gain, weight loss, disordered eating and eventually Intuitive Eating. In this deeply vulnerable episode, Emily reveals the pivotal moments in her life for when she began dieting and for when she finally stopped. There may be sensitive content in this episode for those with or who are recovering from an ED but it's an illuminating chat which ultimately highlights the horribly mixed messages we receive from diet culture and even our families during our most pivotal adolescent years.

something about this Tanya Zuckerbrot lady rubs me the wrong way. it feels more like she's selling a product than she is advocating for a healthy lifestyle. also calling major BS that this isn't restrictive--this diet (weight loss method, not philosophy *cue eyerolling*) is restrictive AF. do appreciate the interviewer poking some holes (though she keeps getting interrupted and talked over, unfortunately).
