[Repost] #221: Riots Not Diets with Becky Young, Fat-Positive Activist and Founder of Anti-Diet Riot Club
Manage episode 296100673 series 28095
Anti Diet Riot Club founder Becky Young joins us to discuss how diet culture intersects with other forms of oppression, how to respond to people who push back against the anti-diet message, why anger is important in eating-disorder recovery, how unconditional permission to eat can free your mind to focus on things other than food, and so much more. Plus, Christy answers a listener question about the definition of the term "people in larger bodies." (This episode originally aired on January 6, 2020.)
After almost 12 years of dieting, Becky Young gave it up for good in 2016 and founded the Anti Diet Riot Club with the intention to host support groups and meet-ups in London for people wanting to do the same. Now the project has grown into a massive online community and hosts panel discussions, creative workshops, and fashion fairs to empower people struggling with low body image. They recently crowdfunded to build the Anti Diet Riot Bus to take their workshops on the road across the UK. Find her online at AntiDietRiotClub.co.uk.
