Happy Monday! We were more worried about dodging heat exhaustion over the weekend than anything else, but when it comes to our health, there’s no denying that body image and self-confidence play a large role in how good we feel, regardless of whether we eat right, exercise, and even sleep according to doctor’s orders. Which is why for the entire week we’ll be talking about body image and how it relates to our health. You’ll hear from Dr. Brooke Kalanick, a nutritionist and fat-loss expert, on the pressure on experts to have the perfect body, Dr. Lissa Rankin on every woman’s fears of the post-baby body, and more.
But we also want to hear from you: Have you learned to love a body part that you used to hate? Have you struggled with finding a healthy way to eat that doesn’t involve a diet? Have you ever obsessed over calories, workouts, or weight in your quest for better health? We want to hear from you. Send your stories to email@example.com [subject: The Body Positive Submission] and we’ll share them with our readers.
And, as always, we hope our stories make for a healthier, happier you.
