Aaron and Glenys talk with Caroline Dooner, humorist and author of The F*ck It Diet, a book that helps chronic dieters untangle themselves from a dysfunctional relationship with food. She used to be a chronic dieter, fully convinced she was a food addict, until she realized that dieting and body hatred were actually the roots of the issue. Caroline talked about her journey towards true non-diet eating: how she tried to manage her PCOS with diets, her foray into the Paleo Diet, the time she tried to turn intuitive eating into a diet, and the epiphany that finally led her to say “F*ck It!” to diets for good. She discussed how the science around the failure of intentional weight loss helped her realize why dieting was so frustratingly futile and how it led to her eventual binge episodes. Caroline also revealed a little bit about the next book she’s working on.
