We’re so excited to welcome to the podcast Lindsay and Lexie Kite, PhD to speak about all things body image! They are identical twin sisters and leading experts in the field of body image resilience, as well as co-founders of the non-profit Beauty Redefined and co-authors of the book “More Than a Body”. Their goal is to allow people to see their bodies as an instrument instead of an ornament.

They join our host Jessica Gill to discuss societal dynamics around body image, including their expanded definition of positive body image and the importance of placing your self-worth in more than just the appearance of your body. This episode also covers self-objectification, unrealistic media portrayals, reframing fitness, tips for parents and the importance of finding purpose and power outside of physical looks! Enjoy!
