We're Not Weighting's podcast

This episode answers….WTF is Healthism?

With a shift in making wellness more of a lifestyle, we have gotten caught up in the idea that we can control more of our health than we actually can. This healthism mentality has affected various socioeconomic levels and created a divide between those who can afford a wellness lifestyle and those who cannot. 

In this episode, we explain why health is not an achievement, and how to go about prioritizing healthy habits with a non-diet mentality.
