Today on the podcast, I am joined by Megrette Fletcher, a registered dietitian who has worked as a diabetes care and education specialist for the past 30 years.

Megrette’s many accomplishments include authoring many books about discovering mindful eating and is the co-founder of the Center for Mindful Eating.

In this episode, we will discuss:

  • The false narrative of diet culture and how it wants to keep you in the binary (good/bad, right/wrong, black/white, etc.).
  • The research around diabetes that she has and is still currently working on.
  • Sort our feelings into three categories rather than staying in the binary.

Megrette also shared a mindset shift to lessen the impact of diet culture.

Mindset shift:

  • Listen to people with lived experiences and read books from those people to understand their experiences better.
  • Find a sense of belonging to shift away from the binary.
