Episode 6: Dr. Beth Jolley on Nutrition and Diet Culture in Canada

Today’s guest is Dr. Beth Jolley, a family medicine resident through McMaster University. Beth and I grew up in Peterborough, ON without ever knowing each other, and met when we were placed as roommates at the University of Guelph. She’s one of those rare, beautiful people who is crazy insightful and thoughtful in all of her work, but also very humble about her accomplishments. Throughout our friendship, I’ve always known her to take a uniquely holistic approach to issues, integrating the artistic and scientific into question about life, health, and wellbeing. On today’s episode, we sit down and talk about her experiences as a young doctor, and focus on nutrition and diet from her medical perspective. We talk about diet culture and main misconceptions or challenges in tackling this as a doctor, barriers to nutritional knowledge, holistic frameworks to look at health and diet, and eating behaviours at end of life.
