Today, I’m chatting with Molly Quinn about her journey through diet culture and how it has impacted her life mentally and physically. 

Molly interned for me this past year and worked closely with me on intuitive eating, eating disorders and disordered eating, and other aspects of diet culture. 

I love talking to Gen Z and getting their insights on diet culture and seeing how closely our experiences align with each other. 

From her first experiences with diet culture on Pinterest to her conscious decision to avoid social media and the influence it had on her diet culture experiences, we discuss it all. 

Join us as Molly shares her journey of shifting away from diet culture, the research she conducted and the knowledge she gained about the damaging effects of dieting. I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds for Molly! 


Molly has recently graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s in Psychology. She was an intern last fall with Alliance for Weight-Inclusive Health, and has conducted research with Dr. Tracy Tylka regarding intuitive eating. Molly has a passion for learning more about the diet culture, eating disorders, and intuitive eating and plans to continue her research regarding eating and exercising habits.
