Eat the Rules with Summer Innanen

I’m joined by Aubrey Gordon, co-host of Maintenance Phase and author of What We Don’t Talk About When We Talk About Fat and “You Just Need to Lose Weight” and 19 Other Myths About Fat People. We’re talking about how we can change beliefs about fatness within ourselves and in our culture, and how the proliferation of weight loss drugs will influence cultural beliefs about fatness.
Show notes:
