Oct 24, 2022

Anna Mackay and Elizabeth Davenport have a conversation with Aaron Flores, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who specializes in male body image.

Aaron Flores is a registered dietitian nutritionist and Certified Body Trust® provider. With over 10 years of experience, Aaron has worked with eating disorders in a variety of settings over his career including the VA Healthcare System and Center for Discovery. He currently has a private practice in Calabasas, CA. Aaron uses Intuitive Eating, Health at Every Size®, and Body Trust® as the framework to help individuals develop a more compassionate, non-judgemental approach to food and their body. His work has been featured on the 10% Happier Podcast, in the New York Times, Huffington Post and Buzzfeed. Aaron is also a frequent speaker, presenting at national and international eating disorder conferences. In addition to his individual work with clients, he is also a podcaster. His two shows are Men Unscripted and, Dietitians Unplugged

They discuss:

  • How Aaron transitioned from being a weight-centric to a weight-neutral practitioner.
  • Ways that men, and people who identify as male, approach dieting and view their bodies, versus women, and people who identify as female.
  • How Aaron talks to his clients about body image and the definition of masculinity.
  • How trends like “clean eating”, counting macros, and intermittent fasting normalize disordered eating behaviors.
  • Where the idea of being judged for a body that is perceived by others as “wrong” comes from, and why it is something that seems to really stick with a person into adulthood.
  • Aaron’s new podcast, Men Unscripted, and why Aaron felt it was important to have a whole podcast dedicated to conversations with men.
