Diet Starts Tomorrow
Welcome to Diet Starts Tomorrow, a podcast hosted by Betches co-founders Aleen Dreksler and Sami Sage, featuring all things wellness, weight loss, mental health, and fitness from the no-bullsh*t perspective of real women who 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 wellbeing as a whole. Listen as they take you on a wellness journey where they discuss their own experiences with weight loss, which fitness routines are actually attainable for the working Betch, staying healthy while still having fun, and how to handle weekend socializing when your friends are forcing you to binge drink and throw caution to the wind.

Where to Start
Unpopular Opinion: I Don’t Feel Better When I Work Out Ft. Sean Kilby
This Thursday, Sami is joined by Betches’ Senior Director of Podcasts, Sean Kilby. They discuss gaining 40 pounds, getting into working out, and why working out sometimes doesn’t actually make you feel better. They also discuss starting to love vegetables, if working out can actually be a hobby, and why relief is the best feeling. Next they read a listener non-scale win about taking the time to recover after getting surgery. Finally, the hosts share their NSWs, including one about taking your vacation days and making the most of your trip, and another about being comfortable being on TV for the first time in a bigger body.
Ignore The Shitty Workouts & Just Do The Ones You Love Ft. Sydney Miller
This week, Sami is joined by HOUSEWORK founder and SoulCycle Master Instructor, Sydney Miller. They start off by discussing how to find the right motivation behind your workout, why there’s a workout for everyone, and what inspired Sydney to start her own workout community called HOUSEWORK. Then Sydney shares her weekly routine and why committing to a workout for just 10 minutes a day can greatly improve your life. They also discuss the pressures to look a certain way, why cutting out certain foods isn’t worth it, and how to find the best pump up music. Finally, Sydney talks about the process of freezing her eggs.
Sami’s Lightning Round: Intuitive Eating & Weight Fluctuation
Sami hosts this Thursday’s lightning round episode. She starts off by talking about the many hats she wears at Betches, what job she would be doing if she wasn’t working at Betches, and how to stop comparing yourself. She also talks about intuitive eating, her relationship with Avi, and botox. Then she talks about feeling like your friends are thinner than you, her favorite foods, and how to deal with your worst body image moments.
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!!
