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

Where to Start

Reality TV Shows Are Scared Of Having Fat Contestants Ft. Dylan Hafer

Aleen is joined by Dylan Hafer, Pop Culture Enthusiast, the brains behind @bravobybetches and the host of the Mention It All podcast. Dylan shares his DSTW about making sure he’s stocked up with groceries, Aleen shares hers about pushing herself in the mornings and then they read a listener submitted a win about making the most of a pandemic-hobby. Next, they talk about the articles swirling around about the lack of body diversity in reality TV shows like Love is Blind, Love Island, the Bachelor/Bachelorette and so many more. Aleen gives the rundown on Vanessa Lachey’s viral comments about the lack of body diversity on Love is Blind and they share their thoughts on the *absurd* comments. Next, they share their hot takes about other dating reality shows like Too Hot To Handle, The Bachelor, and Love Island’s lack of body diversity and why they think that is. They then discuss how fan communities from these shows are urging shows to make the necessary changes to be more inclusive. To wrap up, they chat about how these types of topics have been reflected on The Real Housewives and how they think the industry can make small steps to change. Learn more about your ad choices.

Can Color Therapy Help You Improve Your Life? Ft. Walaa

This week, Aleen talks with Walaa (@walaa.colorways), a certified color therapist, energy alchemist, interior designer and the author of the book “Heal Yourself with Color”. To start off, Walaa shares with Aleen how color gave her purpose during a dark time in her life. She then breaks down what color therapy really is (it may even help you become a better version of yourself). Aleen then asks Walaa to share the meanings behind our most and least fav colors and what each color represents. Next, Aleen asks Walaa to share her thoughts on the latest *neutrals only* trend, and Walaa explains why she thinks it’s not worth the hype. Next, Walaa walks us through which colors to stay away from when you’re trying to manifest different things in life, and the importance of color within interior design. To wrap up, Walaa explains what someone can expect when working with a color therapist.

Your Parents Don’t Know Best, You Do. Ft. Sami

For today’s DST Thursday, Aleen is joined by Sami Sage. To kick it off, they jump into DST Wins, which are sponsored by Heineken 0.0. Sami shares her win about getting through her recent ovary checkups and Aleen shares her win of being a mom for nearly a year (a true accomplishment). They then read a listener's DST Win about learning how to acknowledge your *growth*. Sami and Aleen talk through their own self-growth on this topic, which randomly then brings them to a convo about food cravings (spoiler: Jared is going to love these pickle takes). Finally, they read a Dear DST about asking for advice on how to handle body-shaming from your parents.

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!

BowieBassett

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!
