Episode 21 - Valerie Bertinelli Body Shamed on Social Media with Christine DeFilippis

Jul 12, 2021

In this weeks solo episode I share my thoughts on Valerie Bertinelli's emotional response to fat shaming. Her vulnerable response had me reflecting on times when I was fat shamed. But it also reminded me that no one has to justify their body to anyone. In this episode I share my thoughts on healthism, body autonomy and what fitness instructors need to stop doing if they really want to support improved health - and that includes mental and emotional health.
