These ladies nail it with this podcast. They breakdown diet culture and have the conversations we all need to have! It’s like hanging out with your girlfriends.

I love how vulnerable Sami and Aleen are on this podcast. Honest and open to talking about things most of us are way to scared to open up about. I highly recommend they both listen to @juliealedbetter. She has helped heal my diet issues but also allows for loving yourself and at the same time...Read full review »

Love this podcast!! Great stuff 😍
TLee3456 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/30/21
I’m sorry I know they both have the best of intentions sharing their real experience with body acceptance and it’s very challenging, but a lot of things Sami particularly say are still very steeped in diet culture and damaging when it comes to conclusions around weight health effects. I do not...Read full review »

Love!!! But Aleen get a better microphone! You always sound lost in space. Lean in, speak up something!!!

Lately the pod had lacked structure and substance. Would like to hear less complaining from Sami and overall focused/purposeful conversations. I used to be a loyal listener and now I pick and choose. Still love Betches but this pod has really lacked heart lately.

Okay I just started listening and was shocked by how much I love this podcast (I expected it to be very pro diet culture, “wellness” etc). If you’re upset that they’re not promoting “healthy living” you should read look into the racist origins of BMI, modern weight loss, etc...
talloaksbandee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/22/21
Update: I agree with the other recent comments. Sami has been so hard to listen to lately and is really tanking the whole show. It’s clear she’s insecure about how much weight she gained, but then she can’t be bothered to go for a walk? I don’t get it. I love Aleen and truly think she promotes...Read full review »

Listening to these two talk feels like sitting in a room with two of my best friends. Ive been a listener for years, through all the phases of life and diet culture that the show has explored. While the content of every episode isn’t necessarily relevant to me (I am actively pursuing sustainable...Read full review »

I love how vulnerable and honest Sami and Aleen always are. I feel like they say what I’m thinking or feeling
sophbee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/18/21
I loved how this podcast used to be a lighthearted but truthful discussion about dieting and fitness. It felt like chatting with a friend. Now Sami and Aleen are both on intuitive eating journeys, which is fine for them, but they have this attitude that diets are toxic, only weight gain should be...Read full review »
purlycurly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/21
I agree with other reviewers that the pod lacks substance and structure now, and there is too much self-centered and negative talk from Sami. I feel Ike even when they do have guests on the show now, Sami is always interrupting or arguing with the guest rather than interviewing them for...Read full review »

I have been a regular listener of this podcast for a long time. It has been an absolute pleasure to see Aleen and Sami grow through the different phases of their wellness journey. The Betches company has been a part of my life for so long, I have often felt like I am growing along with them....Read full review »
kirstimcnabney via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/14/21
I feel like their hearts just aren’t in this anymore and they have been phoning it in. The girls get very combative around a simple premise: if you eat more calories than you burn for long enough, you will gain weight. This entire podcast used to be them trying to find a “loophole” that makes...Read full review »

Love the topics and honestly you girls bring!!
glitterclear via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/10/21
I’ve been listening since the beginning and I looked forward to listening on a walk every Sunday. I was a little turned off recently by the excessive anti diet talk and Sami’s negativity but it’s a pandemic and it’s been tough for everyone. I was turned off by the “emergency” podcast for Adele’s...Read full review »

Love this podcast! So fun to listen to Sami and Aleen’s conversations it seems so natural and organic like two best friends hanging out!
amber12345-cool via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/08/21
I listened to this podcast from the very start and used to love it, they had great guests that showed different aspects of diet culture. However, lately It has just been a waste of time. Most of the time they’re talking about their lives but in no relation to health/ nutrition, or Sami is making...Read full review »
crimefanal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/07/21
I used to listen to this podcast every week, anytime there was a new one I listened immediately. Now they make me feel bad for giving a crap about my body. I’m for body positivity, but it gets to a point where this is not promoting healthy living!!!! I also feel like Aleen is still interested in...Read full review »
blonkay via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/21
I’m a huge DST fan and have been listening since day one. I can relate to everything Sami and Aleen have gone through in their diet journeys and they’ve really helped me with my own body image struggles. But things have taken a turn! I can’t listen to Sami anymore. Between the episode where she...Read full review »
ellestein via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/21
Update: the episodes are honestly a joke now. I never thought I would skip an episode but the past 10 or so have been unbearable. Time to unsubscribe. This is my all time favorite podcast and has seriously been keeping me sane throughout the pandemic. I find it comforting to listen to aleen and...Read full review »

This show makes you feel like you've just had a smoothie for your spirit! DST is super relatable and always speaks to me right where I'm at. Truly a must listen!Read full review »
Arlie K via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/29/21
New listener here. Got through 4 episodes and have to put this away. The way the hosts talk over each other, bite back at each other, comments dripping with passive aggression, it’s weird. I feel like that new friend at the brunch table witnessing the competitive dynamic between long time friends...Read full review »

Maybe I just caught a bad episode but I don’t get it. Lots of have car accidents, serious car accident, get over it. Lost 20 minutes of my life. She said it wiped everything from her brain and I think it did because I guess others found them good. So t get it.
chill3730 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/25/21
Tbh I feel like this podcast has no substance. Just listened to the post pandemic one and 30 minutes in I’m wondering ok what is the point here ...? Idk
ssooofffiiiiiiieeeeeemmm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/21
I am a deep DST fan, have been going on 3 years now religiously listening and Aleen and Sami both have truly helped me become more confident in my body. However, I feel like Aleen and Sami are not on the same page when it comes to body positivity, and I find myself getting frustrated with Sami’s...Read full review »

Love Betches!
Jaf_7 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/18/21
Honestly listening to DST makes me feel like I’m chatting with my girl friends. I love this pod and I think they do a great job at being sensitive to certain topics while also not taking life too seriously on others. ❤️
adairabbey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/21
Sami and Aleen are hilarious. They say the things we’re thinking when it comes to body image and dieting, while also being sensitive to the issues that people deal with.
Bob Dylanggggggggg via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/04/21
Candid, honest conversations about navigating ideas of the health/wellness industry. Great progression from the beginning of the pod until now.
Natalie Di Fran via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/03/21
I’ve been on the diet —> IE journey along w Sami and Aleen but don’t like the podcast now as much as I did before the IE transition. It feels pretty unstructured now. I have to believe there are enough IE related topics or health related topics that aren’t pushing diet culture on us to fill a...Read full review »
kylie harwan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/01/21
I’m on my intuitive eating and joyful movement journey. It’s so refreshing to hear Sami and Aleen chat about the same struggles I face, especially since not many of my friends can relate. They’re funny and thoughtful. Overall a really enjoyable listen.
crycree via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/01/21
Okay let me start by saying that I’ve been listening to this podcast since it began. And while I really appreciate the philosophical turn towards body positivity, I just don’t think that the hosts should be hosting anymore. Sami in particular is so self centered and unsupportive, and frankly is a...Read full review »

I love how the pregnancy episode was so non-judgmental (extra snaps for the talk about breast feeding in a super relatable weigh). I love Sami and Aleen, this podcast makes me feel less alone regarding all the crazy emotions us females experience!
mmmmeganray via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/01/21
They say everything you’re thinking...with inspiration, humor, and positive optimism!
sydney998 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/21
Amazing women supporting amazing women supporting themselves. It’s inspiring, encouraging, and hilarious. These women have done it again 💗💗💗
Caramel1991 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/23/21
Loved DST in the past but frustrated with how rude and judgmental the hosts are.
ashvictoria17 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/16/21
Meh
Not informative what so ever. I listened to 3 episodes and didn’t take anything away
mpike406 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/21
I used to listen to this podcast weekly when it first came out, I liked the idea of them talking honestly about being a woman and navigating weight loss / societal pressure. Then Sami’s constant complaining and liberal preaching really turned me off. As mentioned in other reviews, she comes...Read full review »

abcscrabble via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/11/21
I never thought I would come close to being on this journey of having a healthy relationship with food and my body- literally so thankful for what both Aleen and Sami bring to this anti-diet table!! Thank you ladies keep doing you!!
fishergurl17 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/10/21
I have to say this podcast changed in the worst way. While I love the community that is in this podcast, it almost came to “we don’t wanna lose weight anymore, we just wanna survive the pandemic” which is fine, but like... some of us wanna stay fit + love sweating. Kelsey Wells is the best guest...Read full review »
oliviaaaaaaj via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/21
I really enjoy Sami and Aleen, and look forward to this pod weekly. I’m thrilled for them that they are finding comfort with intuitive eating but it would be nice to still hear about some weight loss/fitness topics. Some of the guests recently, mostly Tracy LB are just really not hitting the mark...Read full review »
hbkrunner via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/21
I love the topics that are covered, it’s light & fun but yet informative. The only negative of the show is the amount of talking over each other (cough cough Aleen), whether it be talking over each other or guests and just a lot of side stories/jokes that can start to get slightly irritating...Read full review »
Ashley0290 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/21
Aileen and Sami are the best! Thank you for all the raw and honest talk, it is much needed in our society today. You will laugh, learn, and realize that you’re not alone in this diet culture war LOL. From France to now Canada, I never miss an episode!
marionbo via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/31/21
As someone who narrowly survived anorexia, I never thought I would be able to listen to a diet podcast, but Sami and Aileen proved me wrong. They expose all the contradictions in diet and wellness and clearly constantly work on their own relationship with food and body image. The conversations...Read full review »

Thank you Sami and Aleen for your vulnerability in sharing on DST. Appreciate being part your journey with intuitive eating. It’s very relatable and helps me get in touch with my own feelings about diet culture and other anxieties that I feel. Feels like I’m talking to two good friends!
