In this episode, Mimi talks with co-author of “More Than A Body”, Dr. Lindsay Kite about body image resiliency, media literacy, favorite foods and more. Dr. Lindsay Kite is co-author of the book More Than a Body: Your Body Is an Instrument, Not an Ornament (2020, HarperCollins) and co-director of the nonprofit Beauty Redefined, alongside her identical twin sister Lexie Kite. Both received PhDs from the University of Utah in the study of female body image and have become leading experts in body image resilience and media literacy. Lindsay and Lexie help girls and women recognize and reject the harmful effects of objectification in their lives through their social media activism (on Instagram @beauty_redefined), online course and facilitator program for dieticians and therapists (at morethanabody.org), and regular speaking engagements for people of all ages.
