Dietitians Unplugged Podcast – Episode 9: Why We Hate The Biggest Loser


Greetings Dietitians Unplugged Podcast fans! We’ve got a new episode for you!  Aaron and I let it all out as  we discuss a show that epitomizes our current diet culture, NBC’s “The Biggest Loser.” We discuss the widely-shared article in the New York Times that reviewed the latest research on how contestants’ metabolisms have yet to recover even six years after being on the show.  We also talk about Sarah Aamodt’s great article from the NYT about why you should never diet again.  And we quote one of our favorite HAES® colleagues, Deb Burgard in this great article.  Take a listen to this very important episode — it might be the one you need to hear before you consider going on your next “diet.”

    Ugh, the comment section in the NYT article is all like”fatties want the easy way out and the rest of us constantly watch what we put in our mouths!”

      OMG first rule of sanity on the internet is never read the comments on articles about fat people! (you can read them here, I moderate all comments :-))
