Healthy Me, Healthy Body
In a culture highly influenced by social media and advertising, many Americans learn to distrust their bodies and their own hunger and satiety cues. This can lead to a destructive cycle of continually chasing the latest food trend in search of the perfect diet. The cognitive dissonance between health and body image can lead to disharmony in our minds, which can influence our dietary choices, work productivity, and personal relationships.
In this noontime webinar, you will learn the science behind body perception and its impact on diet, simple tricks to restructure your thinking about food choices, and how to apply what you learn to your daily life for optimal health. By the end of the session, you will have a better understanding of what weight bias is, how to better appreciate your own body, and how to set effective goals for personal health.
This webinar is only available at the scheduled date and time.
Instructor: Gretchen George, PhD, RD, is an assistant professor in nutrition at San Francisco State University. Prior to her faculty position, she worked at Stanford Prevention Research Center as a research dietitian on multiple weight loss studies.
