What You Need to Know About Diet Culture
There is A LOT of good stuff written about what diet culture and diet mentality is and how it presents itself in our everyday lives. We’re not going to try to recreate or even touch that work (although we’ll share a couple of links in a sec). Much of what’s out there is done by some incredibly talented and smart women who are far more expert and qualified in this area than we are (in fact, like I said in this video, we’re still learning ourselves, and we’re committed to improving our content so that it’s truly non-diet).
In a nutshell though, diet culture is the idea and societal belief and expectation that your value is determined by your looks, body shape, or body size, regardless of health or well-being.
