You might be wondering about the happy people in the group photos on this website. They are members of my very special community of classmates in the Body Trust Provider training program. We have formed a wonderful bond and very much enjoy supporting each other in standing our ground to promote Body Trust®! There is a directory of Certified Body Trust Providers, where you can match names and other information to the faces you see in these photos.
When you choose to follow a path that differs from mainstream culture (like rejecting the diet mentality), it’s very helpful to be a part of a community of people who are also following a similar path – a path of healing from diet culture and making peace with food and your body. That way, when it seems like the whole world thinks dieting (including various forms of food restriction that aren’t called dieting) is the path to health, you can turn to members of your Body Trust® community to support you in following the Body Trust® path to food and body peace.
I would like to help you find and/or create this type of community for yourself.
