Diet culture is a system of beliefs and culture that promotes thinness and weight loss as indicators of ultimate health and oppresses people who don’t match up with this supposed picture of “health.” This presentation will provide an overview of disordered eating, diet culture, weight stigma and its impacts on students, staff, and faculty. This presentation will give you the tools to dismantle diet culture and create a culture that is inclusive of every BODY. During this presentation, we are going to bring in several videos, examples from campus and media, and active exercises to help you dismantle diet culture. We will end with a call to action activity that will give participants the opportunity to commit to one strategy to be a part of dismantling diet culture. Do note, this presentation will mention eating disorders and could be triggering for some.
