Show Notes

Even if you're not on an anti-diet journey, you're going to want to listen to this episode with Dr. Maggie Landes MD. We talk about her cancer diagnosis and how her journey convinced her to break up with the BMI, why most clinical encounters don't require your weight (and how to talk to your doctor about it), and why telling someone to "lose weight" is not only bad medicine but unethical. 

Maggie Landes is a board-certified physician, public health nutritionist, and anti-diet wellness expert. Her dual-mission is focused on not just helping women in midlife escape the grips of diet culture and recover from their lifelong turbulent relationship with food, but Maggie, in her Pro2Pro services, supports other health professionals to participate in, and promote, a weight-neutral approach to practice.

She is also the creator and host of “The Eatfluencer Podcast” where she and her guests unpack all the issues related to constructing a healthy, complete, and high-quality life unlimited by the oppression of diet culture.

All of her personal coaching and programs support the Health at Every Size philosophy (HAES®), the framework of Intuitive Eating, and a weight-inclusive, body-neutral approach to health and wellness.
