PRO Series: Non-Diet Approach to Health and Nutrition-S3 EP3

Going Beyond the Food: Diet Culture, Intuitive Eating, Body Acceptance, Mindset and Anti-Diet Podcast

36min

Today we will answer two major questions I get when I teach health professionals about the non-diet approach. 

Usually, these questions come right on the tail end of the first time being introduced to the Non-Diet Approach. 

What are those questions that almost all health professionals have at their first encounter with the non-Diet approach? 

But, what about health? 

And  

What about nutrition? 

These two questions reveal how entrenched diet and wellness culture along with weight stigma in our education as a health professional.

It is very important to note that we, as health professionals, were blind to this. We were taught to teach our patient and client how to co-opt diet culture and fatphobia.

We have been trained and learned to believe that health can only result from dieting, thinness and restriction. 

So when faced with an approach to health that doesn’t promote diet culture, dieting, weight loss or food restriction, we assume it's not “healthy”… 

Non-Diet Approach to Health and Nutrition
