From Likes to Loathing: How Social Media Drives Unhealthy Body Image and Disordered Eating (with Dr. Jillian Lampert, RD, LD)
What if the key to improving our mental health and relationship with food was to take a deeper look at the powerful influence of social media? In this eye-opening conversation, I'm joined by Jillian Lampert, PhD, MPH, RD, LD, FAED, a fellow dietitian and the Chief Strategy Officer for Accanto Health. Dr. Lampert's extensive experience in eating disorders, neurobiology, and her passion for helping people improve their relationship with food and their bodies provide valuable insights on this important topic. Together, we explore the connection between body image and social media, discussing how these platforms, initially created for connection, have evolved to focus on curated images and content, often leading to a need for validation and comparison. Dr. Lampert shares her thoughts on the psychology and neurobiology behind the compelling nature of social media, and how it affects our self-esteem, body image, and overall mental well-being.
