RD Real Talk - Registered Dietitians Keeping it Real

Dec 7, 2018

Jessi Haggerty, aka host of The Body Love Project podcast, joins me on the show. We talk about how she began questioning the efficacy of weight-loss diets in college, and how that felt as a young RD. Jessi is also a personal trainer, tired of the fat-phobia and fear-based food messaging in the fitness industry. Her work is based around body inclusivity, women's health, and creating environments supportive of Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size (HAES). 

Also in this episode: Jessi shares a personal update that explains why we've heard a little less from her on her podcast and blog this year. And we dive into a discussion about how our favorite TV shows of yore don't quite hold up in the body and weight-inclusive world we want to foster. (Looking at you, FRIENDS and SATC. Though, the list is long!)
