Have you taken bad nutrition advice off Instagram? Has social media changed your relationship with food? Me too. In this episode, I had the pleasure of chatting with Melissa Smith, a Registered Dietician and host of the High Vibe Mindset Podcast to chat about Instagram Diet Culture and Intuitive Eating. Melissa shares why she is passionate about nutrition and how to sort through the diet culture that overwhelms our Instagram feeds. We chat about intuitive eating, the dangers of weightloss programs, pros and cons of superfoods, body neutrality, and how to have a better relationship with food.

“Weight is the last measure of health we should focus on… and that is what all of these diets are set up for.”
