The “Myth Busters” Series

This week we are busting the myth that “our bodies are supposed to stay the same weight, post puberty, throughout our whole life.” While this myth may seem easy to bust, it is extremely common to have the subconscious belief that our ideal body was in a previous tier of our lives. This belief leads us to treat our bodies as enemies that have betrayed us and keep us from true body acceptance. In this episode, we offer education on what happens to our height, weight and shape during puberty as well as in the life tiers that follow. We share from a dietetic and a therapeutic perspective on how we help our clients navigate busting this myth for themselves by sharing our philosophies on the changing body throughout the lifespan. Embracing change, challenging cultural messages and socially constructed body hierarchies, and celebrating the cycle of life by embracing our bodily changes is where true freedom, and appreciation for the human form, lie.
