Fellow anti-diet dietitian Aaron Flores returns to discuss unrealistic expectations placed on men and their bodies, the disconnect between the eating-disorder community and social-justice issues, why providers need to heal their own eating issues, the relationship between gym culture and diet culture, how pornopgraphy influences the way men learn about masculinity, tips for bringing your male loved ones into your process of diet-culture recovery, and so much more!
