Combatting the “new year, lose weight” messaging

This time of year women in particular are bombarded with messages about losing weight for the new year. While there is certainly nothing wrong with wanting to be healthier, Host Lindsay Aerts dives into why this messaging can be damaging for women and girls. Her guest, Dr. Lexie Kite, Co-founder of the non-profit Beauty Redefined explains why women have been conditioned to believe that they are bodies to be looked at, and how they can shift that paradigm to view themselves as more than a body. They also discuss how we can teach our daughters not to tie their worth to their weight. Dr. Kite and her twin sister, Lindsay have a new book called More than a Body, found wherever books are sold.
