We all have different shapes and sizes. And there’s growing awareness that we can enhance health and well-being in every body.
On this week’s short snack episode, we welcome back Judy Simon to talk about how we can engage in gentle nutrition and joyful movement instead of restrictive dieting.
And she talks about the imperative that medical professionals practice respectful patient-centered care and weight inclusivity.
Along the way, she debunks commonly held – and antiquated – beliefs about fatness and fertility.
Judy Simon practices as an RDN, certified health education specialist, and adjunct faculty at the University of Washington. She also owns a private practice, Mind Body Nutrition, PLLC, specializing in reproductive nutrition and eating disorders.
