Anti-diet dietitian and mental health counselor Aleta Storch joins us to discuss diet culture in the ADHD and autoimmune disorder communities, her and Christy’s experiences of living with chronic illness, how social determinants of health are often ignored or twisted to uphold diet culture, wellness culture and its stigmatization of medication, and so much more.
