Tonight, we’re talking about BODY IMAGE & DIABETES with musical inspiration from Meghan Trainor.
Think about it. Have you considered if your body image impacts your diabetes?
For people with diabetes, these attitudes may be very healthy which actually helps them manage their diabetes or they may be unhealthy which may lead to blood glucose values that are damaging.
People with a healthy body image see themselves as they really are and are happy with the way they feel and look.
For people that do not have a healthy body image, the term body dysmorphic disorder is sometimes used.
One of the biggest hits of last year, Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” isn’t your typical pop song.
“My producer and I wanted to do a fun song, so we thought why not do a song about loving yourself and loving your body, because I don’t think girls love themselves as much as they should,” Trainor says.
Guests include Chef Robert Lewis aka ‘The Happy Diabetic’, the Charlie’s Angels of Outreach (Patricia Addie-Gentle RN, CDE), Style Blogger Doris Hobbs, Emmy Award winning Producer Linda Bracero Morel, Poet Lorraine Brooks and Mama Rose Marie.
Throughout the podcast we will be playing selected songs from Meghan Trainor’s “Thank You” album courtesy of SONY Music.
Diabetes Late Nite is a fast-paced, full-filled hour of diabetes education and wellness advice that encourages listeners to “laugh a little, learn a lot.”
