Botched Cool Sculpting, Taylor Swift Fat, Christina Applegate MS & 40lb Weight Gain, Taylor Strecker Ozempic
On this week's episode of "The Diet Obsessed Podcast" I discuss a bunch of topics currently in the Zeitgeist.  I start with a recap of my week, followed by a discussion of Taylor Stecker potentially starting to take Ozempic to lose weight.  I then dive into the controversy surrounding Taylor Swift and the music video she recently released where she was depicted getting on a scale and instead of an actual weight, it displayed the word "FAT." Directly following this topic, I briefly discuss the last episode of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" where Lisa Rinna and Garcelle discuss how Garcelle had to remove an offensive part of her newly released book, where she talks about Lisa Rinna's daughter who suffered from an eating disorder.  I then talk about the upsetting news of Christina Applegate and her MS diagnosis, where she mentioned her 40lb weight gain from undergoing treatment for her condition.  Finally, I delve into the botched case of Cool Sculpting that supermodel Linda Evangelista experienced and detailed in a recent People article. If these topics interest you, subscribe/follow "The Diet Obsessed Podcast" and please leave a review to let me know what you think! Also, follow me on Instagram @TheDietObsessedPodcast and @Veronica.SantarelliIf these topics interest you, please follow and subscribe to "The Diet Obsessed Podcast"Subscription page:https://www.buzzsprout.com/1876556/subscribe and don't forget to leave a rating + review!Finally, follow me on Instagram @thedietobsessedpodcast and @veronica.santarelli

Cravings, Max Lugavere Podcast Review, Biggest Myths in Diet & Weight Loss with Sal di Stefano
On this week's episode of "The Diet Obsessed Podcast", I discuss the intense cravings I've been having since going "processed-sugar-free" and I finally get around to doing a podcast review of "The Genius Life" hosted by Max Lugavere.Max is an intelligent, former food-science journalist, turned author and podcaster, he is very passionate about health and on this show he invited his friend Sal di Stefano to discuss the biggest myths when it comes to diet and weight loss.Both of these guys are SO knowledgeable, I occasionally had to look up words and concepts they discussed, which isn't my favorite thing to do when reviewing a podcast, but this genre is very science-based, so it's geared towards people that love the details, bio-hacks and want to be meticulous about their approach to nutrition, fitness and how to get the best results possible.   I have a little of this inside me, but only to a point....then I need my indulgences.If these topics interest you, follow "The Diet Obsessed Podcast" wherever you listed to podcasts and don't forget to leave a review!Also, follow me on Instagram @thedietobsessedpodcastIf these topics interest you, please follow and subscribe to "The Diet Obsessed Podcast"Subscription page:https://www.buzzsprout.com/1876556/subscribe and don't forget to leave a rating + review!Finally, follow me on Instagram @thedietobsessedpodcast and @veronica.santarelli
Tom Brady Too Skinny? Bethenny Frankel Hypocrite, Bad Oktoberfest Food, Tanya Zuckerbrot & FFactor Diet Lawsuit

Tom Brady Too Skinny? Bethenny Frankel Hypocrite, Bad Oktoberfest Food, Tanya Zuckerbrot & FFactor Diet Lawsuit
On this week's episode of The Diet Obsessed Podcast, I review a bunch of random topics that interested me from a bunch of different podcasts I listen to:First I get into a couple hilarious discussions Taylor Strecker got into with her co-host Sean Kilby on The Taylor Strecker Show.  The first discussion involved Tom Brady and Taylor thinking that he looks like an "unwell girl" because he's too skinny.  That piqued my curiosity, so I did a little research into what Tom Brady actually consumes on a regular day and I break it down in this show.  (side note, I also get into Tom and Giselle's potential divorce)The next topic discussed centers around "bad vacation food" because Sean just got back from Oktoberfest and though it was fun, the food was not great (which would make me a very unhappy camper.)We then discuss the way Bethenny Frankel, who was on the Bravo show "Real Housewives of NY City," is a hypocrite, because she has been sending cease and desist letters to young female creators on tick tock, simply for showing a picture of one of her trademarks and talking about the potential for her to start another brand, besides her Skinny Girl brand which is massive.  Bethenny is constantly speaking negatively about other people on social media and now that the tables have turned, she starts threatening to sue??? Not cool.   I used to really like Bethenny, but now she's on my last nerve and I can't stand the way she is using her power to silence young women.  I rant about this and other thoughts I have about her. Finally, I discuss the recent lawsuit Tanya Zuckerbrot is facing, due to side effects people suffered from her high fiber diet, F Factor.   This seems a bit like Karma, since Tanya slapped Emily Gellis with multiple defamation lawsuits for reposting messages people sent her about medical issues they experienced from the F Factor Diet.  Tanya now has to defend herself in court or settle, which could affect the defamation lawsuit against Emily.  I will continue following and reporting on this story until it concludes, which could be years, with the way the judicial system works in America.If these topics interest you, you will love this show!  Follow "The Diet Obsessed Podcast" and don't forget to rate, review and subscribe.Also, follow me on Instagram @ThedietobsessedpodcastIf these topics interest you, please follow and subscribe to "The Diet Obsessed Podcast"Subscription page:https://www.buzzsprout.com/1876556/subscribe and don't forget to leave a rating + review!Finally, follow me on Instagram @thedietobsessedpodcast and @veronica.santarelli

Hangover Food, Infrared Sauna for Anti-Aging, DST Review w/ Jared Freid - Boneless Wings & Onion Rings
On this week's episode of The Diet Obsessed Podcast, I discuss my recent hangover and the only thing that would cure it, Smashburger with a side of Haystack Onion Strings, yum, yum!  Why can't I be like the people who crave a big salad when they have a hangover?  Apparently it's just not in my DNA, but there are people who prefer a salad, so which type of person are you?  I then launch into a review of one of my favorite podcasts, "Diet Starts Tomorrow" with guest host Jared Freid.  Jared gives a detailed review of his food experiences while doing a comedy show in Buffalo, NY...home of the Buffalo Wing.   The place he went ran out of true wings, so he ended up ordering "boneless wings" which are actually just chicken tenders.   He provides all of the delicious food details I love, including: descriptions of dipping sauces, pizza logs, perfectly fried onion rings and how he managed to stop himself from eating until he was sick.  Other topics include, how to enjoy your workouts and does an infrared sauna, actually help with anti-aging?  If these topics interest you, you will love this episode!  Follow @thedietobsessedpodcast and don't forget to rate, review and subscribe!Also, follow me on instagram @thedietobsessedpodcastIf these topics interest you, please follow and subscribe to "The Diet Obsessed Podcast"Subscription page:https://www.buzzsprout.com/1876556/subscribe and don't forget to leave a rating + review!Finally, follow me on Instagram @thedietobsessedpodcast and @veronica.santarelli

Sugar Addiction, DST Review w/ Alicia McCarvell - You Don't Need to be the Same Size as your Partner

Sugar Addiction, DST Review w/ Alicia McCarvell - You Don't Need to be the Same Size as your Partner
On this week's episode of "The Diet Obsessed Podcast" I discuss my obsession with pumpkin spice and my addiction to sugar, that has been leading to a lot of over-eating at night.I then launch into a review of a recent episode of the podcast "Diet Starts Tomorrow" where host Aleen interviewed a fascinating guest by the name of Alicia McCarvell.Alicia is a social media influencer, who went viral on Tick-Tock for a few posts, where she showed a side-by-side picture of herself and her husband, under the topic "my partner is 10x hotter than me" and it went viral because Alicia and her husband don't fit "societal molds."Alicia's husband is a body-builder and Alicia is a fat-influencer, so the juxtaposition in their superficial appearance as a couple is not what you typically see.   Alicia talks very honestly about the years she lost being insecure about her body, which led to not living her best life and held her back from incredible experiences.  She discusses incredibly important topics, such as: not leading with your body, body acceptance, vulnerability in relationships, grief, self love, finding enjoyable movement and much more!  If these topics interest you, you will love this show!  Follow "The Diet Obsessed Podcast" and please leave a review!  Also, follow me on Instagram @thedietobsessedpodcast If these topics interest you, please follow and subscribe to "The Diet Obsessed Podcast"Subscription page:https://www.buzzsprout.com/1876556/subscribe and don't forget to leave a rating + review!Finally, follow me on Instagram @thedietobsessedpodcast and @veronica.santarelli
