This week I chat with Dr Kiera Buchanan, anti-diet clinical and health psychologist, who is calming ME down as I am TOTALLY not ok with diet culture stealing the incredibly gentle and lovely practice of self-compassion and using as a frigging weight loss product! The rage is real as we chat about the horrendous concept of 'the self-compassion diet.' We discuss what self-compassion is actually all about - befriending yourself in difficult times - and how this skill is incredibly foundational to the non-diet approach, and to recovery from eating and weight concerns. Something that's meant to help CURE you from diet culture SHOULD NOT BE USED TO SELL YOU A SMALLER BODY!
