My Chance to Say It AllDec 20, 2022
As you may have seen on social media, a couple weeks ago I got called in to do a segment on NewsNation about an article that came out in Vice Magazine called, “The Cult of Thinness.” (See the segment HERE).
As someone who has fallen prey to this “cult” in the past, I was excited to be part of this conversation - but the segment quickly turned into a debate pitting the “The Cult of Thinness” against the Body Positivity movement, and I was a little taken aback.
At the end of the night I had so much more on my heart that I needed to say.
This week on the podcast, it’s finally my chance to say it!
81% of 3rd graders are afraid of getting fat.
Over 50% of the population is currently on a diet.
Yet over 60% of the population also has either prediabetes or diabetes, and 9 out of 10 people are dying from a metabolic disease.
Clearly what we are doing isn’t working for ANYBODY, whether you are a size 2 or 32.
During the interview, the news anchor made a comment about larger people “sitting around eating twinkies all day” and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.
He was glancing at a person and making assumptions about who they are, what they are doing, and what matters to them based on their size.
He confirmed our biggest fear - that we are being judged for our weight - and that we aren’t allowed to have a voice unless we look a certain way.
We HAVE to separate this idea of worth from a person's appearance.
Every single person has VALUE regardless of their size. These statistics about our country's health scare me BECAUSE we all have value.
We matter NOW.
We need to love ourselves NOW.
We can’t miss the opportunity to have YOU in this world longer.
Please, let me teach you how to do it.

I know it’s a lot asking you to book a call.
I get it.
For some reason, talking about our struggles with food and nutrition is intimidating.
But we have to talk. You aren’t just a sale to be cranked through a website in a few impersonal, one-size-fits-all clicks. You are a human being with a unique story, and that story matters.
It matters to us where you’ve been and what you’ve been through, and we want to show you how we can support you in getting your health and energy back on track so that you can do all the things you were put on this earth to do.
Go ahead and book the call. You matter too much not to!!
