2: Racial Biases in Nutrition and Exercise Recommendations with Dr. Loneke Blackman Carr
As dietitians we focus a lot on food and nutrition, but did you know exercise is equally as important? Women in general face numerous barriers to exercise. One barrier which distinguishes “well-white” women from black women is hair. Yes, hair. Have you all ever sweated out a perm!? We have and let us tell you IT. AINT. PRETTY. Furthermore, naturalistas like us invest time, energy, and money into our hair, and although it is much easier to have a physically active lifestyle now, there are times when simply washing out a style is a tough cookie to swallow. Another huge barrier is the the lack of culturally appropriate health recommendations. Today we have Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Dr. Loneke Blackman Carr who is an Assistant Professor of Community & Public Health Nutrition at the University of Connecticut. She specializes in behavioral weight control interventions with an emphasis on weight loss through dietary and physical activity behavior change. Much of her research focuses on black women to address disparities in obesity and the need for more effective weight loss interventions. Dr. Loneke stops by on the podcast today to discuss issues related to the above stated issues and what interventions can be implemented to elicit change.
