Today I’m joined by Dr. Alexis Conason, clinical psychologist and certified eating disorder specialist-supervisor in private practice in New York City. Dr. Conason is the founder of The Anti-Diet Plan, a weight-inclusive online mindful eating program designed to help people stop dieting, eat more attuned with their body, and live more peaceful and pleasurable lives. She is the author of The Diet Free Revolution: 10 Steps to Free Yourself from the Diet Cycle with Mindful Eating and Radical Self-Acceptance. Today we talk about diet culture, where it comes from, and how it is harmful. We talk about mindful eating, eating disorders, disordered eating, and weight stigma. Dr. Conason shares her advice for creating a meditation mindfulness practice and how to show ourselves compassion.
“The problem is not your body, the problem is our culture.” – Dr. Alexis Conason
