Body Kindness®: Transform Your Health and Never Say 'Diet' Again

By Rebecca Scritchfield, HAES Dietitian Nutritionist, Well-Being & Body Image Advocate, Author

This is not a weight loss show. This is about redefining what it means to pursue health, where your well-being matters more than your weight. When you practice Body Kindness®, you create a more satisfying life by being good to yourself. Learn how self-compassion and acceptance help you cultivate a “caregiver” voice and quiet the “inner critic”. Rebecca Scritchfield and her guests have interesting conversations about the cultural influences that keep you stuck in “diet prison” and how to break free to create meaningful changes in your life. Instead of dieting, you’ll practice self-care, including sleep, sex, having fun, and more!
