Model Emily DiDonato was scouted when she was just 10 years old. Now 29, she's reflecting on her career—and its impact on her mental health—on this week's episode of ‘Your Best Life,’ a new podcast hosted by Anna Victoria, the CEO and founder of the Fit Body app, that's produced by our parent company, Gallery Media Group.
Emily has been in every major fashion magazine and has been the face of major fashion brands like Armani, Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein. In addition to being a model, she's also an influencer and YouTuber who's not afraid to get honest about her struggles with body acceptance. An outspoken advocate for body positivity, she continuously shuts down body shaming and publicly shares her own struggles with body image. Case in point? Her YouTube video titled, "My Journey To Body Positivity + Body Confidence."
In case you missed the last episode, Anna sat down with Ethan Suplee, an actor best known for his roles in movies like American History X, Remember the Titans and Blow. Throughout his life, Ethan struggled with obesity, once weighing 530 pounds. He's since gone through a complete physical transformation, losing more than 200 pounds and documenting his pursuit of health and fitness on his new podcast, ‘American Glutton.’ The two spoke about the myth of one "perfect diet," and about weight loss as a gateway to wellness instead of a smaller pants size.
New episodes are available every Tuesday wherever you get your podcasts—we'll see you then.
