A science-based, humor laced approach to health and fitness. With the help of top researchers from the health and wellness fields, Juna Gjata and Dr. Eddie Phillips break down the science behind good nutrition, exercise, stress, sleep, and more. Includes a generous helping of sarcasm (Juna), dad jokes (Eddie), and pristine sound design (our awesome producers).
Weight stigma, or weight-based discrimination, is a form of stigma that is widely accepted and has been rising over the past few decades. People think that being mistreated because of your body shape or weight is deserved because a person's weight is "their fault." Some even think that "fat shaming" is a way to help people "change" and "become healthier." Today, we discuss the detrimental physical and mental health effects of weight stigma, health effects that are often worse than the documented effects of excess weight. Our guest is psychologist Christine Emmer.
