Lawrence is joined by Dr. Nova Deighton-Smith, Leah Boepple and Andrea Valdez in this week's SBS Radio.

This episode's topic is a very serious one. Dr. Nova Deighton-Smith's research looked into Fitspiration. The kind of posts that flood social media and how they can be so destructive. Leah Boepple discusses a study looking into how pro-anorexic websites can make people feel worse about themselves and research into Thinspiration websites.

In the second half of this episode Lawrence speaks to Andrea Valdez of 3DMJ who looks at this topic through the lense of being a bodybuilding coach.
