Whether we’re aware of it or not, we all have a relationship to and with food.

Food is a language, a form of expression, it is utilitarian, medicinal and life giving. In many cultures across the world it is also associated with celebration, comfort, nourishment and support.

But sometimes all that gets lost in the background by diet culture where certain foods are seen a “good for you” or “bad for you”.

In today’s conversation my guest Laura Iu, an anti-diet dietician explores our relationship with food and how it’s been influenced by diet culture. From myths like how weight loss does not equal health to intuitive eating and how to honour what our bodies need.
