What is diet culture? Why does it matter? And how does it show up in our beloved Bachelor shows? What can we do about it? Danielle Basye, Registered Dietitian, is a wonderful guest to discuss these questions and more. To connect with Danielle, check out her website gentlynourished.net or follow her on Instagram @_gentlynourished_. The books Danielle recommended include: ANTI-DIET by Christy Harrison, INTUITIVE EATING by Evelyn Tribole, HEALTH AT EVERY SIZE by Lindo Bacon, BODY WARS by Margo Maine, THE BEAUTY MYTH by Naomi Wolf, and NOURISH by Heidi Schauster.
