So how can we work on ACTUALLY DITCHING diet culture and shielding ourselves from the restriction, deprivation and suffering that is built around diet culture?
” /> Especially when it is EVERYWHERE!
It seems like a hard task.
It seems like we may never be able to rid ourselves of it.
But the truth is, WE get to decide how we want to live.
WE get to be the writers of our own lives and be the expert of our bodies.
Here are 3 ways you can work on the 1st principle of Intuitive Eating: Reject the Diet Mentality ” />
” /> Curate your news feed
Unfollow influencers or accounts that make you feel BADLY about yourself and your body. Start living MORE of the people that help inspire you.
