“Fitspiration” and “thinspo” instagram pages flood our feed, our media consumption, and our minds. Social media can be an insidious player in the way we view ourselves and our bodies. And often, these struggles are made worse by the transition to college life. This episode is all about finding personal body acceptance, while also grappling with how our body, diet & lifestyle changes as we get older.
