  • Food is pleasurable as a means of survival.
  • Healthy eating includes pleasure. Eating feels good and that keeps us alive and well.

  • Honor the pleasure that comes from food.
  • There’s just one version of you…not a fat version vs skinny version.
  • Have a son or daughter in a larger body or have a child that really enjoys eating?? Is it pecking at your own food experiences or negative body image? Take care of your own shit to not pass it on.
  • Are you a competent eater?
  • Yo-yo diets harm health.
  • You’re not broken our culture is. We need to rewrite our truths about our body and our food.
  • Honor all the sizes you have experienced as the safe keeper for your soul.
  • Shame never promotes health.
  • You are acceptable just the way you are right now.
