SSD Podcast Ep. 32: Lyle McDonald (Part I) Issues with Flexible Dieting I Zealotry I Clean Eating
Video Channel: Abel Csabai
Lyle McDonald makes his appearance on the Sustainable Self-Development podcast for an epic second time!
In this episode we explore everything (or at least a lot of thing) related to dieting psychology, delving into topics such as:
• the “state” of flexible dieting: the good and the bad things that have come out of it
• is flexible dieting really all that better than “clean eating?”
• binge eating and disinhibition
• the right attitude towards nutrition and fitness
This is part one of the discussion, and in part 2 we will be diving into some other topics, such as “slow vs fast weight loss”.
