Judge Me By Size Do You?  Lessons Learned from a Fat Dietitian

Presented by: Aaron Flores, RDN, Certified Body Trust Provider

DESCRIPTION: What do Star Wars, Intuitive Eating, weight stigma, Health at Every Size®, Yoda and Jedis have in common?  Much more than you think.  Aaron Flores, RDN uses metaphors from Star Wars as a new way of  thinking when it comes to learning to ditch our diet mentality and make peace with food and our bodies.  This discussion mixes media clips for the popular movie, Star Wars, and discussion topics to demonstrate the harmful effects of dieting and diet culture on us as a society and how healing comes from learning to be present to the moment and relearning to trust our body's natural cues.
