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 Barbie movie has whipped the entire world into a neon pink frenzy, which is being hailed as a triumph of feminism. But is it? Join me (AKA Menopause Barbie) & feminist shero Dr Natalie Jovanovski (AKA Chin Hair Barbie) as we dissect this complex juggernaut!
Don’t miss the final part of our series on the dark world of food addiction cult Bright Line Eating. Join me as I review her new book “Rezoom”, a masterful collection of straw man arguments, red herrings, outright lies, and utter bullsh*t. There’s also a new ‘published study’, and Susan Peirce Thompson’s chilling response to criticisms of her empire.

My guest this week is a completely fired up Leah V, who shares her experience working as a fat, Black, Muslim model before the fashion industry ghosted her. Is diversity in fashion really happening, or is modeling sliding back into the dreaded ‘Almond moms’/’heroin chic’ era?
In Part 2 of our series on Bright Line Eating, we chat with highly regarded neuroscientist Dr Sandra Aamodt about the neuroscience of body weight. The weight loss industry like to tell us that what we weigh is a matter of personal choice, when in reality, our bodies have a “defended weight range”, commonly known as the set point, which resists weight loss. On diets, our bodies release a whole cascade of hormonal and physiological processes which take us back to where our bodies feel comfortable. We also talk about how food addiction – is it real? Or are the people pushing these ideas just peddling a re-packaged eating disorder?
