In this episode of our summer shorts series, Associate Registered Nutritionist Pixie Turner and Laura sink their teeth into the BBC programme ‘The Big Crash Diet Experiment’. The programme put participants with health conditions on an extremely restrictive very low energy shakes and soup diet.
In this episode Laura and Pixie discuss:
✨The double standard where behaviours that are considered ‘eating disorder behaviours’ in a smaller body are considered healthy and encouraged in someone of a higher weight
✨How programmes like this fail to discuss the importance of mental health
✨The detrimental effects that dieting and fat bias have on people’s health
✨How we can improve our health without going on a restrictive diet
