    I worked in an office in the early 1990s when non-fat everything ruled. I had an attractive, fit coworker who was raising two daughters and I remember thinking her regimen sounded like too much work to me, and even then being weirded out that she was teaching her girls (younger than ten) about how to eat low- and no-far foods. But she was just being a good mom according to the current culture!

    And my other coworker ate a baked potato with mustard on it every day – I think that was a WW hack.

    I feel lucky my innate laziness protected me from all the WORK of diet culture! I recently traveled with a friend who clearly is still working her way out of the grip of diet culture, but she’s come a long way from the days of powders and ultra restrictions.

    It’s so great you have a good therapist while you process the diagnoses as they could relate to food.

      Wow!! Yeah…it’s a lot of work and a lot of mental energy. I’ve heard of the mustard trick. I remember a big blogger back in the day used to use mustard on salad instead of dressing. YUCK!

      That’s great your friend who is trying to get herself out of that mess. It’s hard work!
