Aaron and Glenys welcomed Meg Bradbury to the Dietitians Unplugged podcast! Meg Bradbury is a Certified Body Trust Provider®, anti-diet nutritionist, Accessible Yoga® Teacher, and registered Yoga Alliance yoga and meditation teacher. Meg is in private practice working with individuals, groups, and families, advocating for body acceptance, eating disorder/disordered eating/body shame recovery, freedom with food, joyful movement, and stillness/breathwork. She also co-leads the Elderqueer project, an online gathering space for 40+ queers to connect and build community through conversations about aging in body, relationships, emotions, transitions, trust, and cultural relevance. Meg’s practice is fat positive, weight neutral, and LGBTQIA+ affirming. As an eating disorder survivor, Meg’s work is centered in the tenets of Relational Cultural Therapy; she holds space for clients of all ages with compassion, empathy, and humor.

  • What is orthorexia, and how it took over her life
  • Why orthorexia has become so pervasive in our culture
  • The effects of aging on eating disorders
  • The tyranny of the anti-aging industrial complex
