Fellow anti-diet dietitian and certified intuitive eating counselor Carolina Guízar joins us to discuss why we need to stop vilifying emotional eating, the mental effects of starvation, why fighting diet culture is a form of social justice, the nuances of bringing intuitive eating to Latinx communities, and so much more. Plus, Christy answers a listener question about whether certain foods cause acne.
Carolina Guízar is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and certified intuitive eating counselor with a private practice in New York City. She works with individuals who are recovering from diet culture and want to cultivate a more peaceful relationship with food and their bodies. She also specializes in Irritable Bowel Syndrome and brings a non-diet approach to her work with this population.
The daughter of Mexican immigrants, Carolina understands the difficulties that many in the Latinx community face. Carolina set out to spread the message of Health at Every Size and intuitive eating to Latinx communities via her Instagram account @la_eathority with the aim of alleviating the suffering brought on by food preoccupation and body dissatisfaction. She hopes to shed light on the oppressive qualities of diet culture, and its harmful impact on Latinx communities in the United States. Find her online at Eathority.com.
