Cristina Hoyt is back and today we’re digging into a REALLY touchy subject for this time of year that hits home for a lot of people – weight loss. Specifically, we’re talking about WHY we all feel like we need and want to lose weight (or it’s basically a death sentence), and how Cristina and I approach the topic of weight loss as non-diet, weight-inclusive nutritionists.

PS – want to know my big update? Check out the reveal HERE.

Discussed on today’s episode:

  • The misconception that the Health at Every Size movement is weight loss shaming
  • Weight neutrality
  • WHY we all feel like we need to lose weight
  • The dominant narrative surrounding health is that we need to be a certain weight in order to be “healthy” or to improve our health
  • How weight stigma is built into the medical system
  • Cultural and social stigma around larger bodies and “health”
  • Action step: so you want to lose weight. What can you do to understand this desire, and what it’s really rooted in?

So you want to lose weight, with Cristina Hoyt

If you’re looking for a resource to improve your relationship with food and your body in the new year, Cristina and I created a 12-week program to help you break free from dieting and finally make peace with food and your body, and help you troubleshoot the areas where we commonly see people getting stuck. We’ll show you how to recognize the diet mentality in all aspects of life, how to spot real nutrition information vs. dieting advice, and how to start substituting behaviors that will promote your long-term mental, emotional, and physical health. We’ll teach you how to start making food, exercise, and lifestyle choices from a place of self-care, rather than fear or self-control. You’ll learn about emotional eating, cravings, demystifying nutrition myths and fads, and how to break free of the constant cycle of restriction and “falling off the wagon” (heavy air quotes), and so much more. But this isn’t just about education.

The course is action-oriented, so you can start DOING something about this right now. It includes weekly video and audio lessons (so if you like podcasts, this will be right up your alley!), weekly worksheets and action steps, the support of a private facebook group, and a 1-on-1 coaching session with Dana or Cristina is even included too!

If you’re ready to join these other successful participants and break free from dieting and finally make peace with food and your body, apply for Dana and Christina’s Break the Diet Cycle online course HERE – at!
