Abby Chan MS RD is a fellow sports nutrition enthusiast, bringing anti-diet work to both dietetics and the fitness industry. In fact, she built her own body-inclusive fitness space with her spouse, focused on reducing body and weight stigma while helping folks move in ways they want to. Abby holds nothing back when she talks about how the fitness industry "cheapens their trade" by perpetuating weight stigma and focusing so intently on healthism.
