042: Food is Not a Moral Issue

On this week’s episode, Anna and Maria assert that food is not a moral issue—what kind of food you eat does not make you a good or bad person! Societal norms have made us think this way, however, and our fearless hosts explore the roots of this deeply ingrained misconception. From diet culture to fatphobia to vicious comparison, Anna and Maria discuss the many forces that have contributed to the ways in which we develop relationships with our food. They dive into the mind-body connection and how it can affect the way we consume food, as well as ponder the effect of mindfulness on how our bodies accept the food we choose to eat. Most importantly, Anna and Maria offer ways in which we can challenge the assumption that certain foods are inherently “good” or “bad.”
