Candid, honest conversations about navigating ideas of the health/wellness industry. Great progression from the beginning of the pod until now.

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 »

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.

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
OK I’m unsubscribing...I signed up for a podcast focused on dieting / not dieting not a pregnancy announcement podcast. For women struggling with fertility, this is not for them. For women who choose not to have children, this is not for them. I know you are both 2/3 of Betches but I wish you’d...Read full review »

They say everything you’re thinking...with inspiration, humor, and positive optimism!

Amazing women supporting amazing women supporting themselves. It’s inspiring, encouraging, and hilarious. These women have done it again 💗💗💗

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 »

LOVE this pod! Reminds me I am never alone in my struggles.

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 »
xG2LoveATLx via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/21
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!
BowieBassett via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/21
I really like both Sami & Aleen a lot and think they provide a nice balance for each other...I also love how genuinely their friendship shows in the episodes! I do think most of the guests are really boring and strongly prefer the episodes with just the hosts. I really like the listener...Read full review »

Loved the ep with Jessica Jones!!!
Steve Cohen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/21
I discovered this podcast a year ago and have been going back and listening to ALL of the episodes during quarantine. Listening to Sami and Aleen is like talking with old friends. They’re super relatable and discuss subjects related to diet and wellness that I’ve had my own thoughts/questions...Read full review »
margaretfent via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/16/21
Lately the episodes have been very lack luster/unrelated to health and wellness. I love hearing about Aleens intuitive eating journey, but I’m confused on what this podcast is about anymore (sometimes long talks about candy bars, sometimes real housewives??). In the latest episode Sami jokes...Read full review »

I love Sami and Aleen’s podcast. I know when I turn it on I can just plug in and relax but still be engaged because their content is funny, inclusive, and engaging. I love their brutal honesty and how much the show has evolved with their own lives instead of trying to force it into any single...Read full review »

Sami comes off as an elite liberal know it all. Get rid of her find aleen a new coworker... Samis insecurities reek in this podcast i feel sorry for her husband
lalabearzick via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/21
1st try: “Maybe they are frazzled this episode and saying “like” a lot.” 2nd try: “I learned nothing. No facts, no inspiration, just opinions that contradict themselves” 3rd try: “Wait...I actually think these women are kind of mean ....Why am I drawing inspiration from them or listening to them?...Read full review »
jenni2115 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/21
Every episode has an unusually high number of ads compared to other podcasts and each ad lasts like 2 min 😩
b72w via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/21
Sami and Aleen are my favorite hosts, personalities, podcasters! Love the realness and evolution of this show.
AnnieMelCar via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/06/21
DST is the best! It’s so nice to hear about the journey that is intuitive eating from regular people who are trying to do it. I love the turn it’s taken in the past few months!
sssssssssssshelb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/21
I love listening to Sami and Aleen provide an every girl perspective on dieting. They’re not experts, but it’s so refreshing to hear their real life stories about dieting and body image.
Busy 1L via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/31/20
The humor is always on point! Still keeping every episode informative and inspiring yet still feeling like I'm in a Friday-night convo with two friends :))Read full review »
A Student-Nutritionist via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/29/20
Sami and Aleen quickly and easily became two women I truly admire. Their authenticity and perspectives as millennial women are harder to find in a podcast than you’d first think. It’s obvious they aren’t putting on a front here or hawking wellness advice that makes listeners question their own...Read full review »
KMinCA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/29/20
This podcast is sort of a treat for me like watching trashy reality TV. It’s two affluent, privileged white girls in New York talk about how much they struggle and how messed up society can be. That said, it’s sometimes really fun. I started listening years ago when they were still dieting and...Read full review »
v8857 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/28/20
Love this podcast!! I think Aleen and Sami are so funny and relatable. Specially, I like their solo episodes. Their banter is hilarious and makes me feel like I’m listening to my friends talk. Docked one point for Sami — she sometimes gets on my nerves.
OllieRuth via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/26/20
I’m bored. It’s like the same episode drops each week.
AnnaMariaAM47 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/26/20
This podcast felt like a caricature of a "women's magazine." I probably should have guessed based on the cringe-y name, but I listened to an episode anyway and regret it.Read full review »
km efffff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/24/20
Love listening to these gals every week. I feel like I’ve grown with them since I started listening over a year and half ago! Some real talk about body issues, getting over food insecurities, and learning how to forget everything we were trained to believe on these subjects so that we can truly...Read full review »

The Mindy Kaling episode was a let down. It seemed to be an ad for Walgreens and it super short and very superficial. They hyped it up so much!
moscasenlacasa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/11/20
Sami and Aleen are hilarious and incredibly down to earth. DST is my favorite podcast and always brightens up my day!
favebetch via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/11/20
I’ve been listening to this podcast from the beginning, but it’s gotten harder to listen to. This podcast was my escape from all the seriousness going on right now but has really pivoted. I have really enjoyed the episodes with the guests , especially the last one regarding bra shopping. I can’t...Read full review »

I like this podcast, but god Sami is so insecure. The amount of small digs she’ll make towards Aleen screams insecurity mean girl vibe.

This is my favourite podcast ever!!!!! I love these two girls!!! Listening to them feels like listening in on a chat with my best friends who I grew up with.

sometimes hard to understand the conversation because they're constantly giggling and talking over each other. Some episdoes are fun listens and others sound like pampered 11 year old girls on sugar highs.Read full review »
roses191 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/28/20
I was drawn to the concept of this podcast; regular people talking and learning about their health journey, but Sami has turned me away. If you are not an elite rich girl, she has nothing for you. Her response to an email was “discuss that with your therapist.” Not everyone can afford a...Read full review »

Elle E. L. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/25/20
Very relatable and easy to listen to. Past episodes have featured some interesting guests and topics. Lately the episodes have been less rich and stray to politics at times which is not what people turn this podcast on to hear. Overall I love the podcast but they could use a refresh with new...Read full review »

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 Sami’s conversations, like catching up with friends who are funny and honest. I look forward to new episodes every week. Love it!
eem24242 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/24/20
Their bias and ignorance when it comes to politics has made me completely get rid of all betches stuff and I’ve followed them from the beginning. It was a huge bummer but I’m sick of them blaming everything on the president esp when it comes to finding a healthy relationship with food. That’s on...Read full review »
