LOCAL, IN-PERSON, SEATTLE-AREA WOMEN’S “DITCH DIET CULTURE” BOOK CLUB/DISCUSSION GROUP AND ONLINE MEETING
We discuss books and topics that address food, eating and body image, in a way that is positive, empowering and educational. We meet at a local coffee shop and online, and discuss a different book or topic each month. This group is for women who are tired of trying all the latest diets, only to feel worse about themselves in the long-term than when they started. Are you ready to ditch diet culture and learn about an alternative approach that shifts the guilt and shame about food and body into curiosity and self-compassion? Are you ready to feel free with food, weight and body image? Participants will have a chance to share their perspective on the books and discussion topics, as well as have opportunities for group coaching, as time allows.
Why join the book club? “It’s easy to confuse dieting & being thin with great health – but what if that isn’t true? I joined the Ditch Diet Culture Book Club out of curiosity – but also because of my passion for food & healthy eating, & my personal work with clients dealing with food sensitivities. At the same time, I was aware that such obsessions with food – as necessary as it might be, is, in the end, no different from dieting – both of which can easily lead to disordered eating & being very persnickety around food choices. This is exactly what this Book Club aims to dismantle! After reading the very smart selection of books that Joanne has come up with, I’ve been learning to relax around food, obsess less & enjoy more! The Ditch Diet Culture Book Club is a great way to challenge your beliefs & perceptions in a supportive, open-minded environment.” -KK
