Episode 83: Learn to Spot Diet Culture with Leslie Schilling

Diet culture permeates our society, and has untold negative effects on our well-being. But once we learn to see diet culture for what it is, we can step away from it toward true health. In this episode, Leslie Schilling, registered dietitian, shows us how to spot the diet culture that shows up even in the safest places –school, medical offices, and places of worship— and be empowered to step away from it.

Leslie Schilling, MA, RDN, owns a Las Vegas-based private practice specializing in nutrition counseling for families, people with disordered eating concerns, professional athletes, and performers. Leslie has served as a performance nutrition consultant for Cirque du Soleil® and the NBA and an expert contributor to U.S. News & World Report. She is the creator and co-author of the award-winning book Born To Eat. Her new book, Feed Yourself, is about how diet culture shows up in our safest places.
