Have you ever wanted to work towards body liberation but weren’t quite sure how to do so with PCOS? If you answered yes then this podcast episode is for you.
Sam is joined by a special guest, Chrissy King. Chrissy is a writer, speaker, education, and former strength coach with a passion for creating a diverse and inclusive wellness industrusty. They discuss Chrissy’s book, The Body Liberation Project, where Chrissy empowers individuals to let go of diet culture and start taking up space.
Sam and Chrissy discuss what body liberation means and why Chrissy decided to write her book. They also chat about how most people diet because of what they think reaching a “goal weight” will bring, and why this typically ends up being a never-ending cycle of never truly being happy with yourself or your body.
In this episode, we also discuss:
- Why body liberation is important
- What we really mean when we say “diet culture”
- How diet culture intersects with racism
- Chrissy’s thoughts on why we shouldn’t complement weight loss
- How body liberation can improve life experiences like international travel
Chrissy also answers a listener question: “How do you balance body liberation and healthy eating without obsessing over losing weight?”
