Alissa Rumsey is shouting from the rooftops that there is another way to nourish ourselves and value our bodies. As a registered dietitian, nutrition therapist, and certified intuitive eating counselor, she’s guiding people to divest from diet culture, the messages that tell us we need to have a thin body to be valued in the world.
In this conversation, we talk about teen dieting, why people put their life on hold because of their body size, perfectionism, social justice and the need for community especially among those in marginalized bodies.
Alissa’s new book Unapologetic Eating: Make Peace With Food and Transform Your Life will be available on February 9th! Buy it here.
