What's it about?

If you've ever tried to deal with weight issues, one thing you'll learn is that it can be a very fraught thing. Society offers all kind of diets, cleanses, and detoxes—but many people still struggle to move the needle on the scale. To put the frustration and even demoralization that comes with dealing with weight issues into perspective, it can make a world of difference to understand why it can be a challenge to change and what you can do to get healthier results for both your body and mind. These Blinks and Shortcast episodes uncover everything from the role neuromarketing plays in disguising unhealthy ingredients as "essential vitamins" to unpacking the psychology that lies at the core of our society's fixation on weight loss. Once you've understood these reasons, then you can begin to explore more sustainable weight loss alternatives that place your well-being first.
