The Body Kindness podcast was featured in this New York Times article on podcasts that offer an antidote to traditional ways of thinking about diets this January.
And what great company we’re in: other podcasts featured include Aubrey Gordon’s Maintenance Phase and I Weigh with Jameela Jamil.
Here’s what they had to say about Body Kindness:
“As the title suggests, this show aims to counteract many of the harsh, self-critical messages that people absorb about their bodies. Rebecca Scritchfield is a registered dietitian nutritionist who has centered her counseling practice around rejecting body shame and traditional diet goals. She brings that same gentle, humane approach to her monthly podcast, which is explicitly billed as a show about health, not weight loss. Scritchfield’s advice is deceptively simple: She encourages people to stop seeing food through the lens of reward vs. punishment, and to instead try eating intuitively. With a back catalog five years deep, there’s an episode dedicated to just about any topic you could want, including the fat acceptance movement, diabetes and the ways chronic dieting can affect mental health.”
