Today I’m talking to my college best friend, Melanie Morgan. I met her freshman year when I was a raw vegan, and she tells the story of when we first met (and she thought I was nuts). And apparently, six years later, I also forced her to become paleo with me. I totally forgot that.
In this episode we chat about mental health, my diets before The F*ck It Diet, and lots of other absurd things.
This episode’s anti-diet sponsors!
(In the very least, I recommend you follow them on social media and get their free content!)

Lauren Redwine of Wellness with Redwine
Lauren is an anti-diet coach, and her mission is to challenge “wellness as usual” and give you some motherf*cking freedom.
She received her health coaching certification back in 2013 from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and her Masters in Psychology in 2019. She follows an Intuitive Eating, anti-diet approach with her clients.
When Lauren was going through her health certification she tried diets, cleanses, and “healthy lifestyle” eating in order to live like she thought a health coach should. After each attempt to follow a plan she would inevitably find herself in a violent binging phase only to start a new diet plan all over again on Monday. Lauren felt extremely alone because NO ONE was talking about this, especially in the health & wellness world.
But she has since found freedom — and can help you get there too. In Lauren’s 1:1 coaching program, she helps health-conscious entrepreneurs: lose the obsession with food & gain freedom, stop the diet-binge cycle, learn how to connect to & trust their bodies again, and separate their self-worth from their appearance.
