Making peace with the mirror

This week, we take a thoughtful and vulnerable look at body image. We also take a few minutes to break down and define some popular food claims.

What you’ll hear:

  • A broader definition of body image
  • Our personal stories of body image struggle (or lack there of)
  • What culture teaches us about beauty, our bodies, and health
  • Thoughts on cultivating healthy body image
  • The defining and debunking of some popular health claims

Can I quote you on that?

  • "You compliment the effort, you don't compliment the outcome." Maggie
  • "One of the most damaging things that we've been taught is that weight, in particular, is a moral issue." Jacey
  • "To make assumptions about a person's character, about a person's behavior, about a person's habits based on what is physiologically going on inside their body is absolute (boloney)." Maggie
  • "We don't want other people to think that we think we're pretty." Maggie
  • "There is no greater tool in cultivating a healthy body image than a healthy lifestyle." Maggie
