Have you moved from body hate to body acceptance?
Health professionals and their clients sometimes find it difficult to understand the lived experience of moving from body hate to body acceptance. This anthology of lived accounts will provide both a supportive resource for people struggling with body image issues as well as important lessons in the benefits and nuances of this paradigm shift for medical, health, fitness and wellness professionals.
Personal stories are powerful. Grappling with the news that long term intentional weight loss is unlikely is difficult when diet culture has told you otherwise for your whole life. Your personal story could help people when they need it most; right when they are deciding whether to finally make peace with their bodies and push back against toxic cultural body standards.
Can you help? For more information please see the flyer here.
