How the Goal of Weight Loss can Undermine Health with Tansy Boggon
Weight Loss Undermine Health
Weight is undeniably correlated to an increased risk of many health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer. However, is the pursuit of weight loss the answer to reducing these health risks or managing such health conditions once present?
In this webinar, Tansy will discuss how the goal of weight loss can undermine someone’s efforts for improved health. She is an advocate for supporting clients to create healthy lifestyle habits that they can enjoy and sustain long-term to improve wellbeing, irrespective of weight loss. She’ll share how the goal of weight loss can perpetuate weight bias and stigmatisation, which have the potential to hinder people’s adoption of healthy lifestyle behaviours. She’ll discuss how to avoid weight stigmatisation by taking a non-diet and weight-neutral approach, and explore whether intuitive and mindful eating can be effective tools to support people in forming a healthy relationship with food.
Tansy Boggon is an author, university-qualified nutritionist, trained wellness coach, and food and nutrition writer with a passion for helping people free themselves of the restriction and deprivation of diets to embrace self-acceptance and self-care. In 2019 Tansy released a book, Joyful Eating: How to Break Free of Diets and Make Peace with Your Body. Joyful Eating is not only an insightful and transformative self-help book but provides extensive research and tools useful for health coaches and health professionals who want to help their clients form a healthy relationship to food.
When Tansy is not sharing the non-diet message or debunking diet myths, you can find her experimenting in the kitchen, on her yoga mat or out exploring the outdoors on foot or bike.
