When Barb Puzanovova (she/her), aka The Non-Diet Trainer, was struggling with orthorexia and compulsive exercise in college, she realized she was spending way too much time thinking about food and exercise. Her life felt out of sync. One question that opened her eyes was “Have you had a day without a (food and training) goal?”.
On the podcast, Barb shares her recovery and how critical finding an inclusive, anti-diet gym was. She also shares how recognizing the obstacles that folks feel around hating exercise is very real and how it can be harmful to insist they try to work through their resistance. We also talked about the harmful impact of elitism and anti-fat bias in the fitness industry.
