The never ending pursuit of perfection: Dieting, Body Image & Health
http://www.goodenoughdiet.com @TaraDiversi @DrAdamFraser We wrote The Good Enough Diet because of society's relentless need to be perfect and the problems that causes. In the modern world we are lead to believe that good is not good enough anymore. Everything has to be better, bigger, quicker, stronger, and cheaper. This is not true when it comes to weight loss. When it comes to our health, guilt, blame and stress are rife in our world, and what benefit do they bring us? Nothing! What are the detriments? Now, a child's number one wish is to be skinnier, women are riddled with self-hate, more than half of North America, Australia and the UK are dieting. The diet industry strives on making people, in particular women feel bad about themselves. The sad thing is that they're not effective and we end up putting all the weight back on. This poor relationship with food and our bodies passes down to our children, and eating disorders continue to increase. There is no benefit in setting yourself up for failure or compromising what is most important to you, to be perfect in your diet and exercise regimen. There is great success in knowing when enough is enough. When doing what you need to do, but not more. There is success being healthy, but not fanatical. There is true-life success with losing weight without losing your lifestyle. We are told that we can't be healthy while we travel, while we look after our children and while we build a social life or career that aligns with our values. This is not true. You can have it all. You can lose weight without losing your lifestyle, and you can lose weight and still be healthy. There are a lot of myths about weight loss and dieting. There is no benefit for these myths to infect society, and make weight maintenance and healthy body image more difficult to obtain. We really wanted to share this message. To get our knowledge and experiences on paper so they can help you in your life. Enjoy! Tara & Adam
Eating Disorders -- Promoting a Healthy Body Image | Parents
Watch as Parents Magazine discusses eating disorders and how to promote a healthy body image. Statistics show that four out of five 10-year-olds are scared of being fat. There is a cultural message passed down about how it's good to be skinny. Disorders develop due to stress and the need to control something. Some warning signs of an eating disorder include dramatic weight loss, skipping meals, sounding like a perfectionist, recurrent binges, food missing from the house, frequent bathroom trips, or laxatives around the house. When you think your child has a disorder, you need to sit down with them, be understanding, and come from a loving and helpful place.
