    When Body Positivity Doesn’t Work

    When Body Positivity Doesn’t Work

    This episode discusses the nuances between body positivity and body satisfaction, highlighting the issue of conflating body image with true satisfaction and well-being. The conversation, led by Stephanie Dodier, a non-diet nutritionist, certified intuitive eating counselor, and cognitive behavioral coach, along with guest Brie Campos, a licensed mental health counselor, delves into the origins of the body positivity movement and its transformation over time. They critique the diet culture's co-opting of body positivity, emphasizing the need for a deeper understanding of body image and its impact on individuals' mental health and self-esteem.

    The discussion unpacks the misguided equating of health with thinness and challenges societal norms around body image, advocating for a shift from external motivations to intrinsic self-esteem and personal well-being. They propose self-esteem work detached from physical appearance as a solution to the limitations of the body positivity movement, focusing on empowerment, autonomy, and a broader perspective of health that encompasses mental, emotional, and psychological dimensions.
    What you'll learn listening to this episode: The true definition and origins of body positivity, and how it has been misinterpreted Why body positivity alone is not an effective solution for healing our relationship with our bodies The importance of rebuilding self-esteem and redefining our worth beyond physical appearance The difference between "having to" and "wanting to" when it comes to self-care and wellness The understanding that body image work is a lifelong journey, requiring ongoing self-exploration and growth Mentioned in the show: Free Resources and Training

Ritzfit - Don’t let Black and White thinking manipulate your health

I love this podcast because it’s very informative and on-point. My takeaway with the recent episode - learn to look at the complexity of your health rather than having all or nothing when it comes to diet. Looking forward to future episodes!
