NBSV 117: Fitness industry BS busting [and more] with Ren Jones

If you’ve listened to the No-Bullshit Vegan podcast before, you’ve heard his name. If you haven’t, it’s about time you do!

Coach Ren Jones, one of my favourite humans with whom to “co-bust” industry BS, returns for another episode of mic drops and truth bombs. Ranging from the fitness industry’s take on body size, to celebrity weight loss, we present a freestyle episode: no agenda, however no subject stone left unturned.

Ren Jones is a certified trainer and certified nutrition coach in Charlotte, North Carolina. His personal philosophy toward changing behaviors is centered around self-compassion over discipline, methods which have helped his clients make permanent change and heal their relationship with food.

Important topics and points you don't want to miss:

>> Finding the balance between supporting people with their weight loss goals, but also having a weight-neutral approach to coaching

>> Celebrities who’ve been full-figured in the past losing weight, and the reactions (positive and negative) they receive

>> Ren’s decision to step back for 3 months and reexamine his approach to coaching
