FemTech Focus

Flourish combats diet culture and negative body image - Episode 161

Episode Summary

In today’s episode, I interview Claire Siegel, the co-founder and CEO of Flourish. Flourish is a wellness platform that helps women “get healthy for good” with zero focus on weight loss or food tracking. Diet culture is so deeply embedded into the American psyche that it is difficult to find programs and platforms that don’t subscribe to the diet approach to wellness. Claire Siegel is a registered dietician and knows first-hand how damaging yo-yo dieting can be–both physically and emotionally. After battling 10 years with diets, food, health, and body image, Claire founded Flourish as the first truly non-diet platform, where she helps women heal from diet culture and sustain healthy habits that align with their values through accountability, community and education.
