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

You Don’t Have To Be The Same Size As Your Partner Ft. Alicia Mccarvell

Aleen is joined by TikTok creator Alicia Mccarvell (5.6 million followers) — she’s known for using humor to tackle difficult convos around body image and self-worth. The episode starts off with Alicia telling us how she became a content creator and why the world needs to stop judging everyone just based on their looks. Alicia then talks about how she went viral (like very viral), why she thinks commenters are constantly trying to make her feel like an inadequate wife. Hint: It has something to do with f*cked up societal body standards. Throughout the episode, Alicia is very candid about her experiences – she tells us how she missed out on a chunk of her life due to her body, why she grieves for the time she lost and then she shares some of the pivotal moments that have shaped her body acceptance journey. To wrap up, Alicia gives DST’ers encouragement to get through challenging periods of lacking self-acceptance. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Someone Else's Goals Are Not Yours Ft. Megan Roup

Aleen is rejoined by Megan Roup, Celebrity Trainer and Founder of The Sculpt Society (TSS). To start off this DST Thursday, Aleen and Megan talk about the bounce-back pressure they both felt in their postpartum journeys. Megan then shares her DST Win of the week, which involves getting out of the house and Aleen shares hers, which was inspired by Megan’s episode on Sunday. Next, Aleen reads a DSTW about learning to appreciate a good workout and not feeling like it's a chore. Following that, Aleen reads the Dear DST of the week, where a listener can’t help but compare their fitness goals to a friend’s and Megan shares her thoughts on how to adjust your mindset to do what works best for you. Megan is offering DSTers to try TSS with a 7 day free trial and 25% off your first month with code DST25! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Stop Wasting Your Time With So Much Cardio Ft. Megan Roup

Celebrity Trainer and Founder of The Sculpt Society, Megan Roup, joins Aleen to talk about all the sh*t we’re doing wrong in our virtual workouts. To start it off, Megan shares her background in fitness and what brought her to found TSS in 2017. Megan then shares what TSS is all about and how her goal is to empower women through movement as a lifestyle rather than just something we do to lose weight. Next, Megan shares her secret sauce to movement and why her approach is different from the others we’ve talked about on DST. Megan then walks Aleen through the most common mistakes she sees people make on workout moves and the reason why all of us (most likely) are experiencing lower back pain. To wrap up, Aleen asks Megan some questions submitted by DST’ers and Megan gives us some tips for bettering our relationship with working out. Megan is also offering DSTers to try TSS with a 7 day free trial and 25% off your first month with the code DST25! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Our Reviews


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!


I never thought I would come close to being on this journey of having a healthy relationship with food and my body- literally so thankful for what both Aleen and Sami bring to this anti-diet table!! Thank you ladies keep doing you!!
