Today I'm joined by Malarie Burgess, better known as @thejockscientist! They use humor and compassion to educate folks about the downfalls of diet culture and benefits of health at every size. We discuss her day job as an exercise physiologist, advice she has for people entering the industry, and the benefits of exercise that have nothing to do with weight. We also chat about how she deals with trolls and recovering from early 2000s diet culture.
