What Are We Really Teaching Girls About Health & Fitness? (PODCAST)

This is a big one.

A few weeks ago, Kevin Geary of The Rebooted Body virtually sat down with me, Jennifer Fugo (Gluten Free School), and Ali Shapiro (Truce With Food) to talk about how we (women) talk about our bodies–and how the way we talk about our bodies impacts young women.
