The State of Science: Sugar Addiction

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha Farar talks to Maggie Westwater, one of the authors behind a study looking into misconceptions behind the notion of sugar addiction. 

We talk about:

- Animal studies into addiction and what they can tell us about human behaviour. 

- What studies into drug and other types of addiction can tell us about "sugar addiction."

- How restriction, not addiction, looks to be the driver behind binge eating behaviours. 

- Artificial sweetners and how they affect the way we desire foods. 

- Binge eating development and the role of restriction. 

- Why "food addiction" can be a problematic use of language. 

 

Paper we discussin in this podcast: Westwater, M.L., Fletcher, P.C. & Ziauddeen, H. Eur J Nutr (2016) 55(Suppl 2): 55. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00394-016-1229-6

Event Restriction

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha talks about what she refers to as "event restriction." 

Event restriction is when you anticipate eating more or resting at an event or time in the future, and therefore try to create a "buffer" by restricting more or compensating more via exercise in preparation. 

Event restriction never works. Most people find that is actually makes eating and resting harder, so ironically you struggle even more when you actually get to the big day. Most commonly people event restriction in preparation for Christmas and the festive season.

Fundamentalist Religion and Eating Disorders

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha Farrar talks to Wendy Marsman (from Woman Beyond Belief) about her experience with fundentmentalist religion and the diet culture that can exiest within some church communities. 

I want to make it clear that the aim of this dicussion is not to judge religion. Rather, we are looking into how religious intent and trying to do the "right" thing by the word of God can become troublesome when eating disorders are involved. 

We get into some sticky stuff in this discussion. It is not entirely comfortable to highlight the problems with religion and the opression of women. But it is important. 

 

Wendy Marsman was raised in a strict religious home. Also, being from a fundamental religious background, she was influenced by the Biblical interpretations that women had to submit to men. A “good Christian wife” needed to be thin to please her husband. So, after she got married and had 3 children, Wendy continued to go on yo-yo diets. There were many opportunities to be part of diet groups in the church which she participated in, always aiming to be better, aiming to not be guilty of the “sin of gluttony”.
Wendy has her own podcast called Women Beyond Belief Podcast where she mainly interviews women who have left religions and cults. Many women who have grown up in a religious background have been accustomed to suppression and inequality. She hopes to provide a platform for these women to have a voice.
