EP. 194 — Aubrey Gordon & Michael Hobbes (Re-Release)

Maintenance Phase hosts Aubrey Gordon and Michael Hobbes join Jameela as we revisit this classic I Weigh episode. They discuss why the BMI is bunk, how we clinically don’t have a non-surgical weight loss method and how that should inform our medical health conversations. Aubrey & Michael point out how as a society we blame fat people instead of helping people live healthier lives, why we shouldn’t lecture people on their diets or physically remove food from their supermarket shopping cart (!), and more.
