Do you know where you first got the idea that thinner, leaner, more or less muscular was better? Do you know why you keep reading articles that tell you that your beliefs are true? How about why magazines don't publish more plus size women or why diet companies keep raking in millions despite studies that show that representation can change the way you think about body image and diets don't work?
In this episode of the Your Body, Your Brand podcast, we'll discuss how representation of bodies is often tied to social and financial capital -- getting "likes" and getting paid -- and why we're all drowning in diet culture.
