What is a "Non-Diet Dietitian?" Non-diet Dietitians The term non-diet dietitian may sound like an oxymoron. In practice, though, it means that we will focus on improving your relationship with food and how to fuel your body instead of letting any external food rules dictate your eating habits. This approach aligns with the princip...

Why Choose Intuitive Eating?

Why Choose Intuitive Eating?

As clinicians, we genuinely believe in an anti-diet approach for building a healthy relationship around food. Diets t...

Love this message! Happy New Year!

A great reminder for anyone planning New Year's resolutions this year! As observed by Mayo Clinic experts, "moms are probably the most important influence on a daughter's body image," surpassing the impact of other significant influencers such as media and peers. Given the importance of mothers as body image role models, Dr. Leslie Sim, clinical director of Mayo Clinic's eating disorders program, recommends that they avoid talk about weight, diets, and outer appearances around their daughters.

"Zero comments not only about your daughter's weight, obviously, but zero talk about your weight and even other people's weight," says Sim. Rather than focus on weight, parents can model healthy behaviors for their children such as eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly. It's also important to talk with young girls about natural changes in their bodies, especially as girls approach puberty and may experience normal weight gain during this development period.

To help instill the importance of loving yourself in your Mighty Girl, regardless of your size or shape, we've shared two dozen empowering books for children and teens in our blog post, "Celebrating Every Body: 25 Body Image Positive Books for Mighty Girls," at

For an excellent new guide for tween girls on body image, we highly recommend "The Body Image Book for Girls: Love Yourself and Grow Up Fearless" for ages 10 and up at

There is also a helpful guide to help teens build a healthy, body positive relationship with food, "The Intuitive Eating Workbook for Teens," at

For two great books for children about the importance of loving yourself, we highly recommend "I Like Myself" for ages 3 to 8 ( and "The Confidence Code for Girls" for ages 8 to 12 (

If you have an older Mighty Girl, we recommend books to help girls navigate issues related to puberty, including normal changes in weight and body shape, in our post on "Talking with Tweens and Teens about their Bodies" at

Thanks to Grrrl for sharing this great image! 11/23/2020
