RD Real Talk - Registered Dietitians Keeping it Real

Jan 18, 2019

Taylor Wolfram, dietitian, vegan advocate, and HAES practitioner, wants you to know what veganism is, and what it definitely isn't (e.g. a diet). She posted about this on Instagram recently, knowing it would spark some controversy but willing to take that on. "It's just the tip of the iceberg," she wrote in her post on Instagram. 

We answer a listener's question about some family health history and current heart health issues, related to veganism. 

We talk about how veganism and the Eating Disorder treatment worlds can seem at odds. 

We talk about the Health Halo and pervasive Diet Culture messaging surrounding veganism, and how to decode it. 

And we talk about why Taylor's passion is helping vegans embrace Health at Every Size, and vice versa.
