Episode Summary 

Kia helps clients reject diet culture mindset. Afterall, fitness and nutrition are more than weight loss. Up until recently, there has not been another option for health outside of targeting weight loss. Traditionally, diet culture is front and center. It’s a mentality and a set of beliefs. Something to take on to improve our health. 

Diet culture misses out on the actual person, it doesn’t talk about the strain about the person’s value or their relationship to food. It focuses on weight only to look better. It doesn’t talk about your emotional and mental health under the weight loss regimen. 

But there are alternatives to weight loss to be healthy. Kia has noticed that many people are struggling with weight and struggling to fit in to the thin paradigm. Whether or not they identify with having an eating disorder, everyone has a need to be accepted. If being accepted involves thinness, then using food in an unhealthy way to achieve that thin ideal is problematic.  

Techniques to be in an anti-diet mindset include relaxing the body through breathing awareness, which helps us connect to our body. Another is kindness. Giving space to make changes, rather than spending time beating ourselves up. A good question is, who are you beside from your weight?
