About Pretty Unhealthy:

A heart surgeon and TV star investigates why our health is declining despite our obsession with fitspiration and the image of health.

How have we messed up our relationship with food and exercise so badly? Despite an explosion in the number of gyms, health foods and activewear, we are more obese, less active, more stressed than ever before. 

We obsess over looking healthy, but our health is getting worse. Why did we start equating beauty with health? And is it possible to be fit and fat?

Equipped with Instagram accounts and blogs, online 'wellness experts' lead an army of followers towards what is labelled 'health' but might actually be far from it. We photograph ourselves and our food, but aren't sure whether we like the images until someone else 'likes' them first. It seems all this health and wellness is making us unhappy, poor and pretty unhealthy instead. 

Heart surgeon and health commentator Dr Nikki Stamp unpicks the web of online pseudoscience and urges us to take back our health from the people who don't value it as much as we do. She explores the secret of long-term motivation for healthy diet and exercise, and shares the scientific value of self-kindness for true physical and mental health.

100 Women is a collaborative giving circle that amplifies the giving power of everyday people to create significant change for women and girls. Our ever-growing giving circle gathers people from all walks of life to contribute and celebrate the life-changing impact we make together – locally, nationally and globally.

All contributions are tax deductible and 100% of donations go directly into our grants pool to fund projects that provide refuge, health, education and economic freedom for women and girls. And by giving our donors the opportunity to vote for projects, and see the impact of our grants firsthand, we create a meaningful giving experience.

We are a social bunch and like to take pictures at our events. By purchasing a ticket to our events, you are agreeing to us using these pictures for promotional purposes. If you do not want your picture taken or to be used, please ensure that you make our event organisers aware.
