Episode 33 - #FATPHOBIA!

June 20, 2018

Hello again witches, seekers and friends, and thanks for tning in to episode 33 of the fat feminist witch podcast, the show where I do a little ranting raving and wand waving. I am your host, Paige the fat feminist witch, broadcasting from not so sunny southerwestern ontario, and today we are talking about FATPHOBIA!

CONTENT WARNING FOR THIS EPISODE OF THE FAT FEMINIST WITCH: I will be discussing some personal experiences with fatphobia that I've encountered lately, and some of it is upsetting. If you've ever struggled with disordered eating or other issues with weight, food, medical malpractice associated with weight, suicidal ideation, fatphobia, and abuse, this could be a difficult episode for you. Be safe, even if that means not listening. I still love you!

This is a very personal episode, and doesn't feature any witchcraft, spells, or spiritual tools. I had originally planned to include a segment about magick for fat people, but have decided to make that a seperate episode.

I used a lot of sources for research for this episode, and I totally encourage you all to check them out!

Want to learn more about fat positivity as a movement and life philosophy? The websites and activists have all helped me, and offer great explainations about common fat positive terms and ideas.

These are my fave fat positive twitter accounts:
This fantastic article served as inspiration for like, the whole second half of the episode:

A study about the effectiveness of health At every Size vs. fatphobic abuse:
If you are looking to change your body, this program focuses on your overall health and wellness, and not specifically on your weight!
I talked about a medication called CONTRAVE in this episode, to learn more from an unbiased source, this wiki article is a really great place to start - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bupropion/naltrexone
I read CONSTNT CRAVING by Doreen Virtue in it's entirety for this episode, and it was so interesting. It talks about the connection between food and weight and our moods and mental health.
