Diet Starts Tomorrow

Welcome to Diet Starts Tomorrow, a podcast hosted by Betches co-founder Aleen Dreksler, featuring all things wellness, body image, mental health, nutrition and fitness from the no-bullsh*t perspective of people who totally understand the struggle. In a world where “wellness” looks perfect on Instagram but feels anything but in real life, this podcast explores the psychological and emotional side of health and wellbeing as a whole. Listen as we figure out what it means to achieve balance and live healthfully while also enjoying life, featuring our own experience with weight loss (and gain), staying active when it's literally the last thing you want to do, and how to *actually* like your body. Gasp. No matter your mindset, DST is always with you through thicc and thin. For more DST, follow us on Instagram @dietstartstomorrow.

Aleen Dreksler

Aleen Dreksler is a cofounder and Chief Executive Officer at Betches. She hosts the @Betches, Diet Starts Tomorrow, and Betches Moms podcasts.

Where to Start

The Toxic Lifestyle Of Being A Wellness Influencer Ft. @leefromamerica

This week, Aleen is joined by Lee Tilghman aka @leefromamerica. Lee tells us about her journey as an OG wellness influencer – she shares what her day-to-day was like and how her own health was suffering BTS, while she was publicly being considered a “wellness guru” on social media. Next, Lee shares how both social media and the wellness industries consumed her, and what ultimately brought her to go on a “healing hiatus” to seek professional help for Orthorexia. Aleen and Lee then talk about the power the diet industry has on us through marketing and education, why the “Health at Every Size” approach to wellness was never taught to us as kids and how *wellness burnout* is absolutely real. To end the episode, Lee shares why she came back to Instagram, what her new outlook on sharing on social media looks like now, and they also chat about some of her latest thought-provoking posts about things like not needing to make every one of your hobbies into a job and comparing counting likes on instagram to counting calories.

TikTok's Fav Stylist Wants You To Stop Copying + Pasting Other Peoples' Outfits Ft. Allison Bornstein

Aleen is joined by celeb stylist and Tiktok “fashion teacher”, Allison Bornstein. To kick off the episode, Allison tells us how she got started in fashion and what brought her to be named by Harper’s Bazaar as “TikTok’s Favorite Personal Stylist”. Next, Allison shares why she considers fashion to be wellness and a form of self-care – whether you enjoy dressing yourself or not. Allison gives us the rundown on how she helps people develop their own *style* by using the “three-word method” and how someone’s closet is the first place she always looks when leveling up their wardrobe. Aleen and Allison then talk about the power a good outfit can have on our confidence, tips for how to best dress yourself day-to-day and why you shouldn’t always copy what influencers are wearing. To wrap up, Allison gives some of her go-to tips for styling, closet must-haves and then she picks three words for some celebs and Aleen’s personal style. Learn more about your ad choices.

Listening to Sami and Aleen is like talking with old friends. They’re super relatable and discuss subjects related to diet and wellness that I’ve had my own thoughts/questions about… I feel like my mindset around diet culture has grown and matured with them through the years. You guys are the best!

Thank you Sami and Aleen for your vulnerability in sharing on DST. Appreciate being part [of] your journey with intuitive eating. It’s very relatable and helps me get in touch with my own feelings about diet culture and other anxieties that I feel. Feels like I’m talking to two good friends!
