While the body positivity movement started with good intentions, lately, people are using the term “body positivity” to shame.

From Adele to Rebel Wilson to the young mother down the street, women worldwide are being shamed for either losing weight or deciding to lose weight. 

And it’s started a Great Body Positivity Divide. 

You have one group who says if you’re genuinely body positive, you shouldn’t want to lose weight. On the other side, you have people saying, why can’t I be body positive and still lose a few pounds?

In this episode, Brandi talks with fitness pro Jennifer Nagel about diet culture, the body positivity movement, and the reverse shaming happening nowadays when women decide to lose weight.
