Welcome to Diet Starts Tomorrow, a podcast hosted by Betches co-founder Aleen Dreksler, featuring all things wellness, body image, mental health, nutrition and fitness from the no-bullsh*t perspective of people who totally understand the struggle. In a world where “wellness” looks perfect on Instagram but feels anything but in real life, this podcast explores the psychological and emotional side of health and wellbeing as a whole. Listen as we figure out what it means to achieve balance and live healthfully while also enjoying life, featuring our own experience with weight loss (and gain), staying active when it's literally the last thing you want to do, and how to *actually* like your body. Gasp. No matter your mindset, DST is always with you through thicc and thin.

Taboos In The Name Of Wellness Ft. Ali Weiss
*Episode Trigger Warning: This episode features a conversation about eating disorders* This week Aleen is joined by Ali Weiss, comedian, writer, and the host of the podcast Tales of Taboo. Aleen talks with Ali about the taboos of the wellness industry and how we’re all searching for perfection that doesn’t even exist. The episode kicks off with Ali telling us about her podcast, where she shares anonymous stories from her listeners on different taboo topics. Then they discuss “wellness hobbyists” aka people who are literally willing to do anything to get rid of their toxins (like sit in the sauna with their bodies covered in saran wrap). Ali then shares some of the craziest things she’s done in the pursuit of her *wellness journey* (hint: crystals + private parts were involved). She then tells Aleen about a recent episode she did on the Taboos of Eating Disorders, and they talk about the character trait that all of the stories had in common. The episode wraps up with Aleen reading some of the wellness taboos submitted by DST’ers, and they discuss whether or not these should really be considered taboos in the first place.
It’s Time To Break Up with the Skinny Arm Pose Ft. Alex Light
For this week’s DST Thursday, Aleen is rejoined by London based body confidence, self-acceptance influencer and author of the new book: “You Are Not A Before Picture”, Alex Light (@alexlight_ldn). To kick off the conversation, Alex talks about her podcast “Should I Delete That?” where she breaks down some of the polarizing topics talked about on social media. Alex and Aleen then chat about their DSTWs of the week. Alex’s win is about conquering a fear and Aleen tells us about the new smoothie kick she’s on (do daiquiris count as smoothies?) Aleen then reads a listener DSTW about breaking up with the clothes that you know you’ll never fit into again and they discuss how good it can feel to get rid of your “skinny” clothes. Aleen then reads the Dear DST of the week, about having a distorted body image in pictures. Aleen and Alex give their advice for the listener and then continue the convo from Sunday’s ep, around not allowing pictures of yourself to destroy your body image. Finally, they wrap up talking about how freeing it can be to stop caring about what you look like and learning how to be present in your body.
Sami & Aleen Talk Thirst Traps, Walks & Late Night Eating
Sami and Aleen are Back for Seconds. Sami kicks off the episode by telling Aleen all about a recent late night eating saga and how she went down a $65 Seamless rabbit hole. Can’t blame a drunk girl for wanting a piece of cake (and a pizookie), right? Aleen then gives us a wellness update about her new walking routine and the positive effects it's had on her. Aleen then shares some insights from the book she’s reading, The Power of Habit, and how it's helped her to get more sh*t done. The episode wraps up with Sami telling Aleen about an enlightening intuitive convo she had recently with her Flourish coach and she gives an update on the recent mother/daughter tiff.
A Picture Is Not Worth A Thousand Bad Thoughts Ft. Alex Light
Aleen is joined by Alex Light (@alexlight_ldn), a London based, body confidence and self-acceptance influencer and the author of the new book: “You Are Not A Before Picture.” The episode kicks off with Alex talking about how her account went from being a fashion blog to ultimately shifting her focus to body acceptance and fighting against toxic beauty standards. Alex then shares some of her personal struggles with different eating disorders and how she was able to get the help she needed. Next, she tells us more about her new book, which she calls the “Body Image Bible” (*adding to summer reading list*). Aleen then asks Alex to tell us some of the lightbulb moments that she’s had about the toxic beauty standards that we’re used to and they talk about some of Alex’s viral posts dissecting these "standards". Alex then sheds light on her posts regarding camera angles and body dysmorphia in pictures. Finally, Alex shares how she’s curated her feed for the ultimate positivity and how we need to be mindful of diet culture continuing to show up in our lives in new ways.
Even Models Get Their Inspo Off Instagram ft. Ella Halikas
This DST Thursday, Aleen is rejoined by Ella Halikas, who is a 2021 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, a world-class curve model and the self-proclaimed CEO of Confidence. The ep starts off with Aleen and Ella sharing their DST-Wins of the week. Aleen’s is about starting a new habit and Ella’s is a big moment in her career. Ella then breaks down how trying out for modeling gigs works, what alarming things she’s been told during auditions and what she looks for in campaigns – especially as a curve model. Aleen then reads a listener DST-Win, which is about ignoring the body image stressors of summers and learning how to truly enjoy it. Next, Aleen reads the Dear DST of the week, where a listener asks advice on how to not compare herself to the other girls on a bachelorette trip. Ella just got back from a bachelorette, so she shares all of her tips. She then tells us some of her fav fellow curve influencers to follow for confidence/‘fit inspo. The episode wraps up with more confidence tips and Ella shares how to always show up with your A-game no matter where you go.

The Summer Of Confidence Ft. Ella Halikas
Aleen is joined by Ella Halikas who is a 2021 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, a world-class curve model and the self-proclaimed CEO of Confidence. We kick off the episode by talking about some of Ella’s hilarious TikToks, including her “alternate reality series” where she highlights body image imperfections with Victoria Garrick. Ella then shares how she went from being a small-town Cali native with big dreams of becoming a model to how she booked her first gig. She shares how her hard work and perseverance helped her dreams become a reality and that being rejected from jobs motivated her even more to succeed. She then gives us a BTS look of what it’s like to be an SI swimsuit model, how she deals with turning off the negative thoughts in her head and how she deals with trolls. Next, Ella gives us tips on how to be more confident and reminds us that confidence is an internal strength that can be learned, even though it may not always come naturally. Ella then tells us all about her “Thick Girls Can Rock It Too” series where she recreates *out there* looks from celebs like Julia Fox. Finally, we wrap up by getting Aleen and Ella to confess some of their “weird” traits and then Ella shares an exciting announcement.
Is Hot Yoga Worth The Hair Wash? Ft. Ashley Fern
This week, Workout Woman aka Ashley Fern (@disco_infern0) shares her latest workout review. The episode kicks off with Aleen and Ashley catching up and then they share their DSTW of the week. Ashley’s is about finally hitting a workout goal she was striving for and Aleen’s is about getting rid of things from her closet that were no longer serving her. Aleen then reads a listener DSTW about learning to be more comfortable with wearing crop tops and how the listener was able to overcome her internal dilemma in time for a big performance. They then get into the workout report of the month, which came highly recommended: CorePower Yoga. To start off, they address the bad press that the company has gotten, but remind DST’ers that this review is about the workout and not the business itself. Ashley then breaks down what her class experiences have been like at different CPY studios, if it’s worth going back, and her overall thoughts on the workout aka if the workout is worth needing to wash your hair. Don’t forget to submit your recommendations for workout classes for Ashley to try by dming @dietstartstomorrow or emailing
Under The Tuscan Sun With My Mom And Our Baggage
In this episode, Sami reflects on her trip to Italy with her mom Ilene and the ups and downs of traveling with a family member who’s basically an older version of yourself. Aleen describes her perspective as an outsider of what she imagines it would be like to be a fly on the wall during the trip, and Sami gives us the deets on the hard conversations she and Ilene had on vacation. She then shares how challenging it can be to hold a loved one accountable for their actions. Aleen then gives Sami some advice on how to handle things differently in the future and Sami *literally* takes notes, like with a pen. They also discuss moms and body image, and how our generation is so different from our parents' (thankfully). The episode wraps up with a convo about how it’s impossible to look put-together while on vacation, and Sami and Aleen realize they're secretly envious of each other's wardrobes.
IDK How To Dress Myself Anymore Ft. Liza Lieberman
Aleen is joined by Liza Lieberman (@liza.lieberman), the Betches co-founders’ most stylish friend, a mom of two and a professional stylist who focuses on styling women for bridal, vacation, corporate and special events. Liza gives us all of her styling advice and tips for feeling good in your own skin. The episode kicks off with Liza sharing how she became so fashionable, why she started her blog, “Girl On Fifth'' and how it’s now turned into a side hustle of styling women for bridal parties, big lifetime events, or—in Aleen’s case—photoshoots. Aleen and Liza then talk about how many of us are currently struggling with our post-pandemic style after only wearing sweatpants for 2+ years and how many women are dealing with body dysmorphic thoughts in their post-pandemic bodies. Next, they chat about the power a good outfit can have on your confidence and some easy ways to dress for success. Liza then gives us some of her top styling tips, such as when it’s cool to wear sneakers with a dress, what type of clothes are worth investing in, and the top trends for summer.
Don’t Talk About Weight Loss In Front Of My Kids Ft. Brittany Levine
Aleen is back for DST Thursday with Brittany Levine, Betches Art Director, the face behind @betchesmoms and her co-host on the Betches Moms podcast. The episode kicks off with a convo about their parenting styles and how they differ from their parents. Let’s be real, being a parent in the 80s & 90s is VERY different than it is today. Aleen and Brittany then jump into the DST Wins of the week. Aleen’s is about trying a new workout for the first time (ever) and Brittany’s is about getting back on the tennis court. They then play a listener voicemail sharing a DSTW about giving your body the same grace that you give your child’s body. We don’t shame our kids for growing, so why are we shaming ourselves? Next, Aleen reads the Dear DST of the week, which was submitted by a DST’er who’s nervous to project her body issues on her future children like her mom did to her. We then wrap up the convo talking about how to talk to our partners if they have a different approach to body image conversation around the kids and how lucky parents are now to have so many resources out there for support.
Oatmilk Is Having It’s Moment, But Isn’t That A Processed Food? Ft. Shana Spence
Shana Minei Spence (@thenutritiontea), who calls herself a "eat anything" Registered Dietitian, joins Aleen this week. The episode starts with Shana sharing how and why she made a career shift from the fashion industry to nutrition. Shana then talks about her education as an RD and why it made her become an anti-diet culture practitioner. Next, Shana breaks down diet culture euphemisms like “clean eating” and other language that is often thrown around in diet culture talk. She then reminds us that eating “healthy” is a privilege that not everyone has, which is something we should all be mindful of while scrolling social media. Aleen and Shana end the episode by talking about the red flags in diet culture and why we need to stop judging other people’s food choices (esp. if they’re adults).

Stop Worrying So Damn Much Ft. Victoria Garrick

The episode kicks off with some DST Wins: Victoria’s is about going back to therapy and Aleen shares how she’s going to the doctor, even though it can be such a pain. Then onto the Dear DST of the week, all about approaching that mother-in-law who makes inappropriate, body shaming comments. Aleen and Victoria share their advice on how they’d approach the situation. They also remind the DST’er of the importance of putting yourself first, over a sassy MIL.
