How would you react if someone told you that most of what we are taught to believe about healthy bodies is a lie?
How would you feel if that person was a medical doctor with over 20 years experience treating patients and seeing the harm caused by all this misinformation?
In her podcast, Dr Natasha Larmie, an experienced General Practitioner and self-styled Fat Doctor, examines and challenges ‘health’ as we know it through passionate, unfiltered conversations with guest experts, colleagues and friends.
She tackles the various ways in which weight stigma and anti-fat bias impact both individuals and society as a whole. From the classroom to the boardroom, the doctors office to the local pub, weight-based discrimination is everywhere. Is it any wonder that it has such an impact on our health?
Whether you’re a person affected by weight stigma, a healthcare professional, a concerned parent or an ally who shares our view that people in larger bodies deserve better, Dr. Larmie and the team at ‘The Fat Doctor Podcast’ welcomes you into the inner circle with a new episode every Wednesday.
