ALL FIRED UP!

THE PODCAST

WELCOME TO THE ALL FIRED UP! PODCAST,

WITH YOUR HOST, LOUISE ADAMS

Louise is by nature a mild mannered clinical psychologist, but her alter ego – a FIERCE and fearless anti-diet crusader – is taking over! Louise specialises in helping people recover from disordered eating, and she’s COMPLETELY OVER trying to help people when the culture we live in is utterly sick, toxic, and screwed up when it comes to food, exercise, health, and body size.

Louise cannot for a second longer take the rampant injustice of a society obsessed with thinness and health. She can’t STAND how fat people are being treated like second class citizens. She is LIVID about the way weight science is being sold to make a buck off human misery.

And she’s SO OVER the diet bulls**t that she’s shelved her own introversion and started a podcast!

So welcome to All Fired Up!, where Louise delves deeply into diet culture and blows it the hell up! Each week we’ll meet brave and fascinating anti-diet warriors who are also fighting for equality, justice, and freedom. Join us, and get All Fired Up! about building a better world!

The Fast Track Researchers’ European Vacation

In 2018, the entire world pushed back against the notorious “Fast Track to Health” trial, a $1.2 million tax payer funded experiment in which Australian teenagers were to be subjected to a year of semi starvation. This is despite 70 plus years of weight science research demonstrating that weight loss doesn’t work in the long term. We also know that teen dieting, ESPECIALLY severe restriction, is a massive risk factor for disordered eating and eating disorders. Despite valiant attempts by the eating disorders community, and a viral change.org petition pleading for the Fast Track to stop, this brutal research was allowed to continue. 6 years later, the world’s slowest Fast Track has reached its bitter end. The Fast Track research team have sharted out a triumphant press release, and are planning a glitzy trip to Venice, Italy, to present their ASTOUNDING results at a pharmaceutical indiutry-sponsored ‘conference’. Don’t miss this episode of All Fired Up, where I unpack this utter sh*tshow. TW: This episode is packed full of weight loss dieting, ‘O’ words, and EPIC weight loss industry bullsh*t – so please approach with caution !
