Welcome to The HealED Podcast! I'm your host, Marie-Pier, and today we have an incredible guest joining us, Jasna Robinson-Wright, an amazing registered dietitian at The Balanced Practice.
In this episode, we're diving deep into the intersections between health conditions, eating disorders, and navigating dietary restrictions without triggering disordered eating.
Jasna and I discuss the dangers of jumping straight into the most restrictive route when addressing health issues. We challenge the common belief that cutting out dairy and gluten is necessary for various health conditions.
We also explore the confusion and misinformation surrounding food and nutrition advice in the information age. With everyone feeling like experts on nutrition and readily giving advice without solid evidence, it's important to discern what's valid and what's not.
Moreover, we delve into the pervasive influence of diet culture, wellness culture, and weight bias in society. Popular diets often receive media attention and hype, despite lacking proven effects. Believing that certain foods are "bad" can lead to guilt, shame, and potentially worsening health conditions or disordered eating.
So, grab your favourite beverage, sit back, and get ready for an insightful and transformative discussion on healing, health, and intuitive eating. Let's dive right in!
