Fat-Positive Comedy, Diet-Culture Recovery, and Native American Representation with Jana Schmieding of Woman of Size Podcast
"I'm your host I Christie Harrison and today I'm talking with comedian fat positive activist and fellow podcasters Janisch meeting. You may know from the woman of size podcast. We discuss using comedy to call out Diet Culture why there needs to be more native representation in the media how Western values contribute to who oppression and ill health how diet cultures demonization of emotional eating causes additional distress. And so much more. It's a great episode assode and I can't wait to share it with you and just a moment but first I'll answer this week's listener question which is from a listener named lease who writes as a health at every size psychologists. I appreciate she at your podcast and often encourage my clients to listen to it as well. It seems an oversight however that to my knowledge you never even mentioned how cultural change has led to bigger bodies. I talk with my clients. About how cultural changes moving less. Do to conveniences and more sedentary jobs and easy access to lots of different. Different foods is our reality today. I find that talking about these. Cultural Choices helps decrease shame about being a bigger body for some people. I'm wondering if there's the reason you and your guests don't ever seem to refer to this neutral phenomena so thanks leased for that great question and before I answer just my standard disclaimer. That these answers. There's and this podcast in general our information on educational purposes only and are not a substitute for individual medical or mental health advice. So I'm really glad you asked this question because I think this is one of those really subtle nuances when working to combat diet culture. So I'm sure that some of the folks you've worked with definitely have have had some reduction in shame from hearing these messages that you're speaking about but in my experience it can sometimes actually reinforce shame for people to hear that cultural troll changes have ostensibly lead to bigger bodies. And I say ostensibly here because I don't think it's entirely clear that the cultural changes you're talking about have have led to larger body sizes if anything it's the worry about those cultural changes that contributed to the development of Diet Culture right culture that lead people to start dieting and we do know that dieting in and of itself tends to drive people's weight up over time not that there's anything wrong with weight gain or being in a larger body of course but dieting really does tend to have that effect so the idea that food was more available and that jobs were becoming more sedentary came out of the shift from rural life working on farms to industrial jobs in cities in the mid eighteen hundreds. That's where this idea. I think I started to take root route and there is also industrialization of our food supply. That was happening around the same time and the culture was really a wash in anxiety about what those changes ages quote unquote meant and this was more than one hundred and fifty years ago. Remember well before any arguments about a so called. Obesity epidemic heavy air quotes here right. It came on the scene because that concept was only invented about twenty five years ago after fatness had become thoroughly demonized in the culture and and people have been dieting and trying to lose weight and increasingly large numbers for a hundred years so in other words I think if the average body size in the US has has indeed crept up over the years. which is debatable? Depending on the years that we're talking about probably has a lot more to do with Diet. Culture and the rampant rates of our efforts to shrink ourselves than it does with the nature of our work or the convenience of our food and of course good nutrition and having food available definitely could to help people achieve the body size that they were genetically determined to achieve in a situation of food access. But there's nothing inherently wrong with that and what's more if you look back to the mid eighteen hundreds it's really clear that worries about sedentary jobs and industrial food were not about body size or health per se so much as they were about morality the supposed effect of industrialization on moral character on the moral character of the American people people that was being questioned and debated at the time. And of course. That's ridiculous right. Because there's no moral difference between rural dwellers and city-dwellers or people people who farm and people who buy their food from a store or work in office jobs right. There's no moral virtue and working on a farm as opposed to working in a factory or an office but the belief that there was the belief that there there was some sort of moral difference. There really comes out of puritanical ideas about morality and also so is really tied up with racism xenophobia because a lot of the fears about industrialization and urban were actually fears about immigration and the a big wave of immigrants that were moving to the US and moving into US cities specifically because of the opportunity to work in the factories. That were springing up there. So I talk about all of this in the first chapter of my book. So if you're curious to know more about this history or read the references you can check it out there but I bring up all this history just to point out here that a the people have been worrying about the effects of sedentary work and convenient food Everson's industrialization began and from the very start. Those worries were tied up with arguments about morality and be because of that history. It really isn't neutral to say that sedentary work and convenient food quote unquote caused ause more people to be larger body. That argument comes with baggage in the form of beliefs that we really quote unquote should be working more physical labor intensive jobs and cooking all our food from scratch all that stuff and I think that often that's what people take from conversations about how these kinds of cultural factors have have affected body size. They take it as a mandate to start exercising more and eating less or eating differently and of course. Those are dieting behaviors the so really arguments about sedentary jobs and the food environment are often just triggers for dieting behaviors especially in the twenty first century. When we've had almost was twenty years of people like Michael Pollen and Marion Nestle and quote unquote wellness influencers giving out diet tips under the guise of cultural analysis alice's or wellness advised which is basically what chapter two of my book is all about? Is this insidious shift from overt diets to covert diets from diets calling themselves diets to die. It's by another name and too often conversations about food. Politics are full of very thinly veiled fat hat phobia and food phobia which are harmful to people's health. No matter their body size but especially harmful to people in larger bodies who've had to endure repeated the incidents of fat phobia and diet culture trauma throughout their lives and so often have a heightened awareness of it and a heightened sensitivity to it for that reason and so that that is why. I don't use that argument and of course I can't speak for my guests on the podcast but I imagine that might be part of why they don't either because of all this baggage that comes comes with that argument in the form of morality in the form of the history of this argument and in the form of a modern manifestation of this argument as leading leading people to Diet right leading people to engage in dieting behaviors like trying to eat less and move more and do all the things that Dia Culture tells us to do except up now it's under the guise of correcting for the problems of the ills of modern life instead of under the guise of weight loss for aesthetics. Or whatever it might have been even before the twenty first century so to lease who asked the question. I in no way want to shame you for discussing those cultural factors with your clients. I can totally understand understand why it would seem innocuous neutral and even freeing to mention these things and you know some of your clients might truly feel like it takes the the pressure off of them as individuals to be responsible for their body size. But we're all always learning even as Hayes professionals and I know I myself refused to talk about the food environment and sedentary jobs and all that stuff to before I started to reflect on how problematic these food activists type arguments really can and be how. They're not really rooted in fact so much as beliefs about what body size means or what certain behaviors mean and how these arguments can unintentionally trigger. Shame in the very people that were trying to help heal from shame and I also want to say that I'm by no means some perfect clinician. Here I I just happened to have given a lot of thought to this particular nexus of food politics and diet culture because of my own background and my lived experiences because I it was so bought into the food activist Movement for years and it did me tremendous harm it really worse than my disordered eating and so I think that makes me more suspicious of food activist arguments now and more willing to sort of take a critical eye towards
Intuitive Eating and Cultural Identity with Christyna Johnson, Health At Every Size Dietitian
"The question. It's from a listener named Jen and who writes Hi Christie. I'm up and down with eating struggles and I'm not sure how much of it is a lack of intuitive eating versus eating disorder related. I have a history of Anerexia UNBELIE MIA that I mostly recovered from. But I still have a bit of food obsession and body image issues that I'm holding onto it seems to go in phases a few you good weeks of feeling good and then back to it. I often find myself eating related to emotions frustration boredom etc and having a hard hard time listening to my body's cues hunger. I have a hard time saying no to myself. Even if I'm not hungry it feels more like my mind wants it than my body. I don't binged like I used to but I feel I am over eating and eating unnecessarily and trying to get satisfaction from it but often don't I often feel unsatisfied died despite allowing myself sweets regularly. I know in your podcast. You often emphasized to eat what you want but with my history. I don't know that I can trust my body's cues to do so as it often doesn't seem like a physical need for food. I'm wondering if you have any advice for me to deal with these urges. Do I need to pursue eating disorder help or intuitive. Who would've eating help? Thank you so much in advance Christie. I really appreciate any help. So thanks Jen for that. Great question and before. I answer just my standard disclaimer disclaimer. That these answers and this podcast in general are for informational and educational purposes only and our substitute for individual medical or mental health health advice so first of all I wanNA send you so much compassion because it sounds like you've been through a lot in your relationship with food. Sounds like you're still going through a lot lot in your relationship with food and you know Kudos to making it this far and recovery has it's no easy feat to get out of the depths of Anorexia and bulimia even even if you're still in this gray area early recovery. I think it's amazing that you are not as engaged in the eating disorder behaviors as it. Sounds like you used to be but that said it definitely sounds like you still have a ways to go and your recovery and specifically it sounds like you still have a lot of diet mentality or eating disorder mentality going on and really. They're kind of in the same. I would say the eating disorder mentality is sort of maybe sometimes a more amplified version of the Diet mentality but it all comes from the same place place which is internalized beliefs from diet culture about foods being good or bad or issues about weight feelings and thoughts about weight right beliefs that higher weights are bad and things like that. All of that is internalized. Dia Culture beliefs that you have made your own right. So that's that's what the Diet mentality. That's what the eating disorder mentality is. And that is really evident in some of the phrase. You used here and your question Mike when you say I have a hard time saying no to myself Alf. Even if I'm not hungry and I feel I am overeating and eating unnecessarily so it sounds like you're thinking that you should be eating less and you're policing facing the amounts you eat and you're perceived reasons for eating and that's very much a restrictive mindset. That's very much a diet mentality eating disorder mentality. I'll be mindset. The reality is there's no such thing as quote unquote eating unnecessarily right. If you're eating it's necessary. It's necessary because has especially in the case of recovery from disordered eating. Your body needs to learn to trust that you're not going to start it again and Jenn. It's likely that your body body really needs a lot of work on rebuilding that trust since you had anorexia and bulimia which are really severe violations of trust for your body. Those are in trauma to the body trauma to the brain. A real disconnection of that body. Trust that we're all born with and you know it takes you away from your intuitive relationship with food when you have a disorder anorexia Bulimia which is very harsh very driven by diet culture rules and beliefs and not at all intuitive intuitive not at all honoring the hunger and fullness and satisfaction cues that you were born with and that we all deserve to be able to honor so I would really encourage you to work on this mindset and stop seeing these urges to eat and this perceived eating in response to emotions as wrong or bad the way. I think you're seeing them now. I would encourage you to get help from a dietician who's versed in both eating disorders and intuitive eating and health at every size because I think you need all of that in order to recover I think you need probably definitely still some recovery from your eating disorder. It sounds like you still have some really restrictive thinking going on that you need to to be able to recover from. Maybe some restrictive behaviors as well. When you're talking about trying to get yourself to stop eating right but you also you know? It sounds like you need some help in tuning earning back into your cues and starting to trust those cues Allah intuitive eating so finding a provider who gets that and also gets the health at every size paradigm and is not going to shame you for if you're in a larger body size of your body or say anything that inadvertently makes you feel like you have to lose weight or anything like that. It's really important to find a Dietitian who gets gets all of those things. So you can check out Kristie Harrison dot com slash providers for my recommendations of providers who get it. These are people who've been on the PODCAST. Who who really understand the anti diet philosophy and who? I think. Have the best chance of being able to help you recover. Unfortunately there are still too many eating disorder providers Out there and even intuitive eating focus providers out there who are caught up in diet culture to varying degrees. So if you WANNA try to avoid that I think my shortlist list of providers who've been on the podcast is a great place to start because I try to vet everyone really thoroughly before I even invite them onto the show so you know at least I have a sense that they are pretty well versed in all of these ideas and these philosophies and they're not gonNA turn intuitive eating into a diet for you and they're probably gonNA call you Out For trying to join intuitive eating into a diet so Christie Harrison dot com slash providers is where to get that also as I shared a few episodes ago on the podcast in the listener. QNA for episode two. Oh nine with amy severson. Hunger doesn't always manifest as sensations in the stomach in fact far from it. So when you're judging yourself as quote unquote eating because you're not hungry. I don't think that really tells the whole story either. You likely are having non stomach. Sensations nations of hunger that you just aren't identifying such as thoughts of food difficulty concentrating anxiety. You know lots of other things. So check out that episode for a deeper dive into that where I talk about the non stomach signs of hunger and the sort of things that people overlook when they're trying to learn to honor their hunger you're that's at Christie Harrison Dot com slash two oh nine Christie Harrison dot com slash two. Oh nine or wherever. You're listening to this. You can just look for episode two. Oh nine so I hope that helps ups and just want to send you a lot of compassion and a lot of support in breaking free from these last vestiges of the Diet mentality these restrictive thoughts and beliefs. About how you're eating and just give you full unconditional permission to eat whenever you feel like eating for whatever reason because you deserve it. You don't have to second gase reasons for eating. You don't have to second guess whether it's really physical or emotional or mental. It doesn't matter those distinctions. Don't matter what matters is allowing yourself full unconditional permission to eat for any reason so that you can rebuild that trust with your body after having it so damaged and so broken by the anorexia Bulimia which are really really harmful to your relationship with food right. and your ability to eat intuitively so again.

"That's Christie Harrison dot com slash course. And another thing I wanna highlight here is the fact that this program is a multilevel marketing scheme, which in my view as a feminist small business owner myself is super problematic from a business perspective because multilevel marketing requires the people who are. During the program to literally buy in by investing a whole bunch of their own money up front. And it's not like investing, you know, money into your own business that you started from the ground up. That's yours. You can make the decisions you're actually buying into someone else's company, or you're giving them a bunch of money in order to get in, and it makes people who are selling it feel like they have to sell the products that they bought in order to break even because that's actually how the business model works, and in many cases, people don't actually come close to breaking even by selling the products that they bought which in the case of this program that Kelly mentioned, those products are workouts and protein, shakes, but, you know, the distributors and multi level marketing schemes whatever they are often by more than they can sell whatever their product is because they get volume discounts on those products. But then when they buy all these products oftentimes, those things just end up sitting unsold in their garages, or their basements, or their storage units. And instead, the quote unquote, coaches with this program the Kelly mentioned. Or the representatives are distributors or whatever they're called and other multilevel marketing schemes. They make their money by recruiting other people to become quote unquote, coaches or quote unquote representatives, or quote unquote distributors or whatever the multilevel marketing scheme, and question calls them. John Oliver did an amazing piece on multilevel marketing going into depth about all of these issues and so many more issues with this business model, which Oliver argues is largely indistinguishable from a pyramid scheme, and I think that's a really important argument. So we'll link to that piece in the show notes for this episode. I highly recommend watching it. And as one former MLM distributor was quoted in John Oliver's, piece, she says you don't make money from selling products. You make a little not much not enough to pay the bills that are racking up you make money from signing people up and quote. So with multilevel marketing, you often get people who are desperate to sell their products and to sign other people up to become coaches because they've taken. Out loans, or dipped into savings in order.

"That's Christie Harrison dot com slash book. Okay. So that's all the news for now. Now, let's go to this week's listener question, which is from a listener named Rachel who writes, I'm listening to the latest reposted episode with is about FOX and Duke, and I'm confused because I understand that we shouldn't define ourselves as emotional eaters. But do we still need to work on that aspect as in the principle of intuitive eating that says how to cope with your emotions without using food? So thanks Rachel for that. Great question. And before I answer, just my standard. Disclaimer that these answers and this podcast in general are for informational and educational purposes, only and aren't substitute for individual, medical or mental health advice. So yeah, this is a really important question. I'm so glad you asked it this is where I diverge a bit from the third edition of the intuitive eating book, and I know the author. Have been evolving in their thinking. And they're getting ready to do at twenty fifth anniversary edition of the book. Actually. So it's possible that they may have a whole new take on this in the next addition to but for me for my experience as I've worked with clients over the years and deepened my understanding of diet culture and its role in driving so-called emotional eating. I've come to see that what people label as emotional eating is almost always driven by deprivation, by diet culture. Really? And by not having enough food and enough variety to truly satisfy them. And so if you try to quote cope with your feelings without using food when you're in that deprived state. You're just going to be further depriving yourself. I have a section about this in my book where I say that you can't work on coping with your emotions without using food. If those emotions are largely driven by needing food, right because being deprived of food. Both physically and emotionally makes us emotional. It makes us anxious and depressed and emotionally unpredictable and irritable. And of course, there are some people out there who started turning to food for comfort. In the absence of any dieting behaviors who started using food just to soothe themselves after trauma or cope with feelings because they hadn't been taught any other coping mechanisms that is definitely a less common occurrence from what I've seen a less common occurrence, then they form of emotional eating that has just solely driven by probation. But it does happen for sure. And some of you listening might have had that experience of turning to food for comfort in the absence of dieting to start the problem is that we live in diet culture. And so even if you're turning to food is a coping mechanism without any deprivation to start almost immediately the deprivation kicks in because diet culture starts raging in your ear with ideas like you're eating too, much or gaining weight. You're gonna need to stop this emotional eating right now or else. Right. And so suddenly, what was just, you know, an innocent coping mechanism to begin with gets loaded with all this, baggage and demonized by diet culture. And so then you do start restricting you do start either physically or psychologically restricting? Or both. Usually there's some of both for most people. And then that further drives you to reach for food because now you're deprived. So for everyone I would say whether your so called emotional eating is actually driven just by deprivation or whether it's driven by deprivation layered on top of efforts to cope you need to heal from the deprivation first before you can start trying to explore.

"Other podcasts have been loving lately is called food psych. It's by Christie Harrison, and she is a dietitian, but she's also a journalist, and she is just a bad ass. It's kind of framed around like tackling, diet culture. But she does it in a really fascinating way because she is a nutritionist. So she kind of takes all these things that we think of as like, basic knowledge or basic science and debunks them through conversations with various like body, positively activists gastro intestinal health specialists eating disorder specialists, and it has there's a ton of amazing feminist content, and there she very much approaches it through a feminist perspective. But I've just learned so much about kind of how to be a more empowered eater, and thinker and anti diet culture soldier. So. A highly recommend. It's it's a very good. Listen, I am going to add both of those to my playlist like as soon as we get off was laws. It's so good.
