Diets don’t work
You probably know that diets don’t work. If they did, people wouldn’t be coming up with new ones all the time, billions of dollars wouldn’t need to be spent on ‘dieting’ and we would all be competent eaters. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. Children aren’t fed in a way that helps them remain competent eaters, which they are when they are born.
The Body Love Society
The Body Love Society was started by women who have been chronic dieters and seen for themselves that there is a better way to live your life than by the scales. They are presenting a series of podcasts ‘Never Diet Again’ starting on 21st February 2018. There will be 20 episodes and the one on 6th March will be with Jennifer Harris, a faculty member of the Ellyn Satter Institute. Jennifer has been utilizing the Satter Eating Competence models in her practice for both adults and children for over 20 years and has found them to be protective for both children and adults.
