Jameela Jamil really wants you to care less about losing weight right now 16/04/2020

“If you’re struggling with your weight and image in a moment of new foods, less exercise, and general loss of control, just try to breathe and know it is only your responsibility to stay safe and protect others, not to be thin.” — Jameela Jamil


Jameela Jamil really wants you to care less about losing weight right now The Good Place star tells her followers to love their bodies “for what it does, not for how it looks,” and to simply “get your sweatpants on and survive.”

Mirror, mirror, on the wall 09/04/2020

We may not be the best at judging our own attractiveness, recent research suggests.

Researchers from the University of Barcelona examined the difference between how we believe we look, and how we view our own body from an outsider’s perspective.

What they found was that people rate their own body more negatively when embodied in it, compared to viewing their exact same body but as an outsider.

Yoga for Eating Disorder Recovery — Eat Breathe Thrive 26/03/2020

Eat Breathe Thrive is releasing a new online yoga experience to support those in eating disorder recovery!

As many treatment centres close their doors to prevent the spread of coronavirus and countries go into lockdown, folks at home are seeking support in the virtual space. Panic buying and food scarcity has all of us a bit more anxious, and for those with an eating disorder history this pandemic has brought new challenges to staying in recovery.

Here at Eat Breathe Thrive, we've been working round the clock to develop online resources to support this community. We've always believed that yoga and face-to-face connection is key to recovery, and with that in mind we've developed a live and interactive course that includes yoga, meditation, and lots of interactive community support.

Sessions will be held each Thursday, April 2nd through April 23rd, 5pm-7pm UK time. This course is appropriate for all phases of recovery, and no prior yoga experience is needed.

Registration costs £100, but there are also scholarships available. (Link in the comments below.)

Yoga for Eating Disorder Recovery — Eat Breathe Thrive Yoga for Eating Disorder Recovery is a live and interactive online yoga course, designed to support your recovery. Discover how yoga can help you manage anxiety, connect with your body, and accept yourself.

Eating to Be Clean: The Growing Awareness for Orthorexia 16/03/2020

“Real talk: your food is not clean, or dirty. And neither are you. You aren’t what you eat. You are so much more than your menu.” 👏

The way we talk about weight loss has to change | Marie Claire 09/03/2020

“Anyone else find it depressing that it’s 2020 & we’re still glorifying women’s shrinking bodies in this way? How is it ok for professional adults to not only condone, but glorify self-starving?”

"Why is body love so hard to grasp? We spend all of our time fighting against ourselves that we forget to soldier up and fight for ourselves. Because in the end, all we truly have is ourselves, and that in itself should be enough to go to war. Our minds control our wakes and slumbers. Our limbs are the ones that roll us out of bed every day, and sometimes not at all. Our lungs shudder anxiety with every inhale yet exhale relief and satisfaction. And our hearts, oh.. Our hearts, keep beating even after every sh*t storm of a day.

It is sad that this concrete jungle we live in has made it socially acceptable to tell one another “I love you” without questioning the true definition but outrageous to tell someone to genuinely “love themselves.”

So with that said, I challenge, no.. I beg of you to love yourself. One day at a time, take the time, to love every little; curve, crevice, dimple, bone, muscle.. and so on. Thank your little toe for always being there for your big toe. Thank your ass for its never ending support and healthy bowel system. Thank your smile for always lighting up the sky and those around you. Just.. thank yourself for being you. There is only ONE of YOU. So take care; physically, spiritually but most of all mentally. Self hate is no way to live. It’s just a slower form of su***de."

'When I put on 15kg, everyone congratulated me. But it was for all the wrong reasons.' 19/02/2020

“There is room for all of us at the table, and we shouldn’t value exclusion based on sizes and assumptions of personal experiences. Language is important, inclusion is important. You are not a before, you are not an after. Your body is and always will be YOUR body, YOUR vessel, one of strength and love and adversity.

You have legs that have carried you to where you are today, arms that have held other’s in their times of need, hands that have created wondrous and glorious touch and experiences, eyes that have seen love in so many multi-faceted ways, stomachs that have hardened and softened in times of heartache and tears and deep belly-rumbling laughs.

We do not owe anybody thin, we do not owe anybody thick, we do not owe anybody a single damn thing.”

What To Say To A Friend Who's Constantly Body Shaming Themselves 06/02/2020

When a friend starts criticizing their body in front of you, it’s hard to know what to say. Your instinct might be to tell them they’re crazy to even think that. Or maybe you feel inclined to jump in and start talking badly about your own body to make them feel less alone.

But these go-to responses, however well-intentioned, can actually do more harm than good. Here's how to handle it instead.

What To Say To A Friend Who's Constantly Body Shaming Themselves You may be tempted to talk negatively about your own body to make your friend feel better, but experts say that's a bad idea.

“I Can’t Believe You Don't Have a Thigh Gap” 20/01/2020

👉👉 “Body shaming is not trivial, unimportant, banter, or fun. A look at the stories shows this clearly. Shaming is deeply distressing, stays with you, and can be defining of who you are. Shaming who other people are is not OK, and this is what we seek to call out in the project.”

“I Can’t Believe You Don't Have a Thigh Gap” and why we should be ashamed to body shame.

January is the month of body shaming. I'm tuning out. 15/01/2020

“We are steeped in a cultural narrative that relentlessly brings discussions of health back to systems of eating, and thus to deprivation, and thus to the shrinking of bodies. New Year's resolutions are just one of many ostensibly wellness-related phenomena that have become Trojan horses for body-shaming and fatphobia.”

January is the month of body shaming. I'm tuning out. I refuse to beat myself up this year

The Unspoken Complexity of “Self-Care” 17/11/2019

“Workarounds and harm-reduction are also only one part of the solution. We also need to fundamentally overhaul (or tear down and rebuild entirely) the systems in which we live, so that we can be further enabled to work on the other kinds of care that we need.”

The Unspoken Complexity of “Self-Care” Self-care is thrown around a lot as a magic bullet to solve all of your problems. I think it’s a lot more complicated than that.

The Physical Sense of Self 14/11/2019

“The different representations of the body that the brain relies on to anchor our sense of a physical self mostly operate under the hood, hidden from our mental life.”

Have you experienced a disconnect between how you look and how you measure up? How does your body identity affect how you act, think, or feel?

The Physical Sense of Self How we think we look and how we measure up are often not the same.


Little by little,
I am unlearning
A lifetime’s practice
Of staying quiet to keep the peace;
Of always being the one to apologise;
Of shying away from tough conversations;
Of searching for my worth
(in exam scores and calories,
in hours of productivity,
or the number on the scale);
Of feeling like a burden;
Of loathing every inch of my skin.

Little by little,
I am learning
To stand tall and take up space;
To trust in my own capability;
To speak my truth and express my needs;
To take responsibility for what is mine to own
(and to let go of what is not);
To get clear on the things I am willing to accept,
and to get clear on the things I won’t;
To assert my boundaries with clarity and kindness;
To say no (and stick to it);
To say yes (and mean it).

This is life’s work, right here:
In the messiness and the clarity,
In the discomfort and the relief,
In the sticking with it, regardless.

Come, meet me there,
Deep in the process,
The practice,
Of learning and unlearning.

“I know I'm strong
I know I've got this

'Your life is bigger than your pant size' - Yoga teacher Jessamyn Stanley​ on why body obsession needs to stop 23/08/2019

“​We’re all so obsessed with our bodies, they become such a huge part of how we see our self-worth it’s ridiculous. I was in a motorbike accident a few weeks ago and I wish it didn’t take something catastrophic happening to hit the message home: your life is bigger than your pant size. We need to get to a place where you don’t need to be thinking about your body apart from how well it runs. It’s not something that has to form our entire identity.​”

Opinion | Our Kids Do Not Need a Weight Watchers App 19/08/2019

“If we truly want to help children be the healthiest and happiest people they can be, we need to stop putting them on diets of any kind, which are likely to worsen their overall well-being. Instead, we need to start teaching them to trust their own inner wisdom about food. And we need to help them make peace with their bodies, at any size.”

Claiming Our Space: Not Just for Curvy Students 13/08/2019

“Taking up space isn’t just about the physical space around your mat. Taking up space is also speaking up when the teacher asks if anyone has any requests for class. It’s about asking questions or waving the teacher over when you need assistance. It’s about deciding that a few moments in child’s pose is a better option for you than what the rest of class is doing. Taking up space is about getting all that you want and need out of your practice.”

What We Eat: Morality and the Dinner Table 06/08/2019

“The result of applying labels to our food choices usually ends in one of two things: guilt or self-righteousness. We feel guilty if we have overdone it, which can mean eating “bad” things or even too many “good” things. “I’ve been so bad all week,” we often say. Alternately, we feel righteous and self-satisfied if we have eaten a limited quantity or only selected “good” food. Yet even if we land on the good side of things, we will typically return to feeling guilty or bad very quickly. This is because we are basing our appraisal on what we have eaten, which is a transitory thing.”

What We Eat: Morality and the Dinner Table


“Did you know that we need each other to make it through?

Did you know that even when we feel like we are on our own tiny islands floating out at sea (sometimes lost and sometimes found and sometimes wrapped up in the adventure) that to know we are loved, held, heard, seen and cared for is essential to our becoming?

Did you know we don't have to do it all alone?

Did you know that even if there is work to be done we can be witnessed and loved because of and not in spite of our leap into whatever it is we are most afraid of?

Did you know that your own nature is not a burden or something that needs to be made smaller and more palatable for anyone else?”

Diet Culture Is More Toxic Than We Realize — for All of Us 24/07/2019

“As a culture, we continue to equate thinness with wellness and weight loss with effort. Thin = healthy, fat = unhealthy. Losing weight = accomplishment, gaining weight = laziness.

We still believe this on a base level despite the fact that it’s disproven time and time again. Sure, weight loss can be a byproduct of adopting a healthy lifestyle, but it’s not necessarily an indicator of one.”

Cimorelli - You're Worth It 09/07/2019

“You're not a burden, not a waste
You're not a copy, can't be replaced
You're not your pain, you're not your past
Scars will never hold you back
So much that you've been through that nobody knows
So many things you never show

You're more than labels
More than pain
You're more than your mistakes
And you've got something to say”
