Diet Culture is BS

Dr. Trina Dorrah, MD

I created this podcast to fight back against diet culture. I'm Dr. Trina Dorrah, MD. I'm a physician and a binge eating coach. I'm also an eating disorder survivor. Our society teaches women to hate their bodies. We're told we need to shrink ourselves and take up less space to be beautiful. We're taught that the solution to all of our problems is found on the other side of a diet. The problem is...so much of what we've been taught is wrong. In this podcast, I explore topics such as diet culture, binge eating, body neutrality, intuitive eating, self-compassion, and disordered eating. The diet industry is a multibillion dollar industry that thrives on making women feel unattractive. It's time to fight back. I invite you to join me. read less

30. The Danger of Joining the "Clean Plate Club"

30. The Danger of Joining the "Clean Plate Club"
When you were a child, did you ever have an adult tell you not to get up from the table until you ate every bite of food on your plate? If so, you may have been initiated into the "clean plate club". The problem with the clean plate club is that it causes you to ignore your body's own hunger and fullness cues. Instead, it teaches you to rely on an empty plate to tell you when to stop eating. One of the biggest dangers of being part of the clean plate club is that you may unintentionally pass this habit on to your kids. If children are taught to eat even when they're not hungry, that can set them up for a lifetime of overeating and binge eating.In this episode, I talk about why we may think asking our kids to clean their plates is helpful, but why it actually isn't in reality. I also talk about what you can do instead to support your children at mealtimes. ✅ FREE TRAININGSeptember 25, 2022 from 2-3pm Central Register: https://coaching.drtrinadorrah.com/diet-culture-is-bsWant to work with me one-on-on?

29. Remember Why You Want This
In this episode, I talk about your big why and your big why not. Your big why is your reason for wanting to change. It's the reason why you want to stop binging, dieting, obsessing about food, or hating your body.  Your big why not helps you understand what your life will look like if you do not change. It reminds you of what your future looks like if you continue to follow the rules of diet culture.Healing your relationship with food is not always easy. There will definitely be times when you want to give up and go back to  your old habits. During those times, remembering your big why reminds you of why it's worth it to continue moving forward.WANT TO WORK WITH ME ONE ON ONE?Regardless of where you are in your journey to stop eating all of the time (when you're not even hungry), I can help you.

28. Choose Your Thoughts Wisely
Did you know that your thoughts about your body determine how you feel about your body? It's easy to believe that if you could just lose a few pounds, or if you could change the way you look, then you'd be able to accept your body. In reality, what you weigh and the size you wear are just facts. We call these facts "circumstances". Your circumstance DOES NOT create your feelings. Instead, your THOUGHTS about your circumstance determine how you feel.In this episode, I explore the importance of choosing your thoughts wisely. I show you how choosing your thoughts can help you change your opinion about your body for the better.WANT TO WORK WITH ME ONE ON ONE?Schedule a free no-pressure consultation now.
