Dr. Lindo Bacon shares why calling out and noticing diet culture can be so challenging because it’s countercultural and risky, why what diet culture is selling is only creating the problem, the importance of looking at your own experience with food as validation, challenging weight stigma and advocating for every body being worthy of respect.
Dr. Bacon also shares their personal story around their gender identity and offers reassurance that our past stories can be reclaimed as a source of power and much more around self-acceptance, hope and living inside of your body.
