Straight from the pits of hell is diet culture’s latest trend, water fasting! People are actually PAYING MONEY to go to ‘treatment centres’ to be professionally starved for weeks on end. My guest this week is Sarah Barnitt, a listener from Chicago who is OUTRAGED that this ridiculous trend is taking hold all over the USA – water fasting! The worst part is this practice is being promoted by Instagram Influencers like the “Balanced Blonde,” who is apparently ‘recovered’ from orthorexia but needs to be cured of her many illnesses by starving herself. Join us down the rabbit hole of extreme self delusion, as we investigate these disturbing trends.
