288-Believing in Yourself More Than Diet Culture

Believing in Yourself

Do you believe in diet culture more than you believe in yourself?

For example, do you believe that your own level of self-confidence is an outcome of the size of your body? Or your beauty? Or the amount of wrinkles you own? 

Or maybe you appreciate that for others, it’s possible to be confident at any size, and you admire the women who do but that for you it’s impossible. 

Do you believe that for you, it’s impossible to have a peaceful relationship with sugar? Do you secretly believe that something is wrong with your body and that sugar has this unbreakable grip on you that makes it impossible to control?

Do you believe that your habits around exercise and movement are the outcome of your own lack of self-discipline? That if you weren’t so lazy, you’d go for a walk more often?

And I’ll extend this to circumstances outside of food and body… because diet culture beliefs affect your life beyond food.

Maybe you believe that your career is stalled because of your inability to be perfect enough or produce enough work to meet your boss’s standards?

Perhaps you stop yourself from applying for your dream job because your know you are not qualified enough? That other people have so much more to offer than you.

These are all diet culture beliefs.

Believing in yourself more than diet culture

Diet culture beliefs do not support your amazingness, your goodness, and your brilliance.

Diet Culture beliefs have been manufactured in order to create self-doubt in women, feeling of victimhood, distrust with self and disempowerment.

In order to believe in yourself and the possibilities that can be present for you in your life, you need to have beliefs that support this amazingness, goodness that is in you now. That’s what we are going to explore in this episode of our podcast.
