SHOW DESCRIPTION: It’s rare when you find someone who is a public figure and a celebrity and who is not only not scared to speak out on controversial issues, but also truly advocates for change - especially protecting our youth from false advertising that promotes body issues. Jameela Jamil is such a person and on today’s podcast we have a brilliant discussion on so many important mental health issues like body dysmorphia, her own more than 20-year struggle with anorexia, the energy draining and joy stealing this focus has, the pressure on women to live up to patriarchal standards, the influence of social media on our youth and so much more. Jameela is a British actress, model, and activist and BBC radio host. She gained widespread recognition in the TV series "The Good Place." In addition to her acting career, Jameela is known for her body positivity advocacy and campaigns against beauty standards and body shaming.
She co-founded the "I Weigh" movement and podcast, promoting self-worth beyond physical appearance, which she recently interviewed recently on. Jameela has been an outspoken advocate for inclusivity, mental health awareness, and LGBTQ+ rights and is an active voice in the fight against online bullying and misinformation.
