If you are someone who feels like diet culture is hanging with you in sneaky ways, then this is an episode for you! Be sure to listen to us discuss the three different ways diet culture impacts us and how they probably affect us much more than we realize. Marie-Pier also gives us some incredible suggestions on stepping away from diet culture and stepping toward your more authentic self.

I hope you love listening to this episode as much as I loved having this conversation!
