The body positivity/#BOPO movement is becoming increasingly popular... One question that health professionals, myself included, have asked, is "Does promoting body positivity mean promoting obesity or unhealthy behaviors?" There's also a myriad of fitness influencers/personalities beginning to use body positivity hashtags and claim the movement as their own... which can be problematic. Today's guest, Victoria Myers of Nourishing Minds Nutrition, is a Registered Dietitian who also speaks extremely eloquently on body positivity. She specializes in disordered eating, female hormones, IBS/SIBO, and body positivity. In today's show, we talk about:
-The Body Positivity movement and what it means/why it was created,
-Defining diet culture and how it impacts our lives,
-Internalized vs. externalized fat phobia,
-Body positivity and promoting health,
-Why diets aren't the key to health,
-Health at every size,
-Recovering from amenorrhea
-Coming off of hormonal birth control and getting normal hormone levels back,
-So much more!
This episode is FULL of wisdom and I can't wait for you to hear it.
