Why is it that many men seem unenthusiastic about discussing body image issues?

We take a deep dive into this topic with Aaron Flores, a Los Angeles-based registered dietician and nutritionist, and one of the few men very active in the space of intuitive eating. Aaron talks about how capitalism ties our weight to our worthiness, and his notion that “our body is not a project.”

In this episode we also discuss:

  • What intuitive eating is
  • How men experience body image issues, and why they often don’t talk about it
  • The relationship between diet culture and capitalism
  • What “health at every size” means and why it’s sometimes controversial
  • Guidelines for parents
  • The role of self-compassion when it comes to food
