@NoomCoach I am on day 2 of my 14-day trial, and I am almost ready to cancel right now. 1/ I generally advocate for #bodyacceptance and #healthateverysize #HAES, so I am skeptical of all "diets" particularly the rhetoric around restriction and bad calorie science
@NoomCoach 2/ Your app/program claims to have a different relationship to food and value than other diet programs. And while I appreciate the gesture at not labeling foods "good" and "bad" your color-coding system is basically the equivalent
@NoomCoach 3/ Your calorie logic is *EXACTLY THE SAME* as every other diet program out there--weight loss is a simple equation between calories in/calories out. Which btw is overly simplistic. You basically have a teched-up revamp of @WeightWatchers_

Can we stop pretending like diets in 2019 are any different than old diets just because they have been repackaged for health?

Keto is Atkins
WW Freestyle is still Weight Watchers
Intermittent Fasting is just skipping meals
Low carb is the new low fat

& they all still don’t work
Quick note: I’m going to do a thread later on the evidence to support what I’m saying

Also: I have a podcast called Trust Your Body Project if ya wanna check it out. It’s about intuitive eating, body image, and mental health

OKAY RESEARCH TIME! Let's do this, people. I guarantee I'll miss things and this won't be comprehensive, but I'm gonna try my damn best to lay this out. Are you ready?!

1/ The #HAES and @WtMgmtDPG debate at #FNCE today impacted me more than I realized, so please allow me to share what has been bouncing around inside my head for the last few hours - Another perspective that may have been missed.
2/ This "debate" seems multi-layered and hard to pin down, but one of the most controversial points, as far as I understand it, is to argue which of the following is worse - the state of being obese, or the stigma that can be attached to it? #FNCE
3/ When I dare venture to ask why we can't respond to this stigma by teaching clients to internalize things differently, I get dismissed or told things like "You're missing the bigger picture of injustice", or, "that's just your privilege talking." #FNCE
