Ep 52 : Shame On Our Health - New Year Edition

In The RACK Podcast...Powered by ProForm Physical Therapy.


Dr. Chad and Dr. Nick bring you a special episode today about a particular topic that might be a little uncomfortable for some people to hear. Not only does it need to be said, but if you are one of those people that feels uncomfortable with this topic then you are the type of person that actually needs to listen to this one.

The topic of today is a good way to end 2022 and start 2023. Its the topic of health shaming with an emphasis on respecting your own health as we dive into 2023. We also dive into some tips to help you navigate the upcoming holiday. 

In 2022, we saw so many people in our community make huge strides on their health journey, and we certainly want to keep this rolling… However, in 2022, we also witnessed a culture that criticizes and shames you for giving unhealthy people a hard time, yet it “is totally fine” to make fun of people for “being healthy” by doing the boring small behaviors with pristine consistency.

There is a double standard in our culture, especially in the US. We are told to be okay with your body, no matter what! But this discounts the reality that one’s current weight/body fat content could very well indicate diminished poor metabolic health!! This is NOT OK!!!

It is one thing to be mentally stable with where you’re at and have plans in place to make strides toward a healthier you. We cannot continue on this train of “be okay in your own skin” if that means you’re continuing to live an unhealthy life!

Ultimately, we want people to respect their health in 2023!

We are NOT saying...go body shame people for being overweight! We want people to optimize their health. We want you to thrive, not just survive during your lifetime!!
