Mormon Mental Health Association
November 6th, 2020
I had the opportunity to present at the Mormon Mental Health Association on fighting diet culture in 2020. Diet culture is oppressive. I talked on the system of beliefs that normalize disordered eating. With roots in racism, diet culture continues to harm us all, but it particularly targets marginalized folks and perpetuates systemic weight stigma; a major health risk. This presentation brought to light how diet culture shows up, how to fight it, and what alternatives to present to our clients.
