Episode 67: Food - Beyond Diet Cultures Perspective

Time: 27:06
Today Dr. Anderson reflects on how people can expand their perspective of food. Diet culture and eating disorder voice lead people to think of food in limited ways. She discusses how food offers so much more than diet culture and eating disorder-perspective can. She talks about:
Ways diet culture narrows our thoughts on food Calculator model Good/Bad food Moralizing eating Without diet culture, we can appreciate so much more about food How food is created, makes its way to our plates What food does in our bodies How food can be pleasurable, meaningful, and emotional Food facilitating connection with others Food passing along family traditions Food as a part of cultural or religious practice Preparing food as enjoyable itself  COVID and what’s really important about food Always, but even more so during the pandemic, people experience hunger, food insecurity by no fault of their own Diet culture pressures people to make “good” choices. How does one do that when you can’t access all foods, enough foods, or don’t have food available consistently?  Food as part of an act of service Food can be a way we look after our fellow people. If you have the means, support local organizations, people in your community who are struggling right now.
