The Truth About

Health & Weight

Why are we so focused on weight loss? It’s not for the health, well-being, or self-confidence reasons that you may think.

Learn what the science really says about weight and health, the many problems with the BMI, and why shifting the focus from body size to behaviors is so important.

Some of My Favorite

Instagram Accounts

Following social media accounts that feature a diverse range of body shapes and sizes will help you begin to widen the definition of what a “normal” body is. The more you see images of people that feature fat bodies, hairy bodies, saggy bodies, bodies with stretch marks and acne, belly rolls and cellulite, the more you begin to realize that all this is normal. We are all normal.

Make a conscious effort to add these images of reality by including better representation in any media you are consuming. Below is a selection of my favorite food and body liberation-related Instagram accounts. You can find a full list here.
