Straight and Curly Ep 29: Making sense of diet and food #2


This is the second of a three-part series Carly and I are doing in an attempt to demystify food and diets. And I won’t lie, it’s a bigger job than I thought!

In today’s episode we cover:

  • Labelling food – is it useful to label a food ‘good’ or ‘bad’?
  • The fine line between self-diagnosing food intolerances … and knowing what your body does and doesn’t like
  • How to stop rewarding/consoling yourself with food
  • Moderator vs Abstainer mindsets
  • Whether diets actually work

Resources we mention
