Eat the Rules with Summer Innanen

I’m joined by Christy Harrison, author of Anti-Diet and most recently The Wellness Trap. We’re talking about why, as a culture, we’re so obsessed with wellness and how social media perpetuates this. We’re also debunking some of the more common wellness claims and what to watch out for so that you don’t fall into the wellness trap.
