You’ve Got Lael Episode 56: Reclaiming Body Trust with Dana Sturtevant

Our guest today is Dana Sturtevant (she/her) co-author of Reclaiming Body Trust: A Path to Healing and Liberation. We're exploring diet culture, fatphobia, healthism and how we are impacted by and uphold these cultural norms.

Reading their book shifted something deep in me. I'm already experimenting with new behaviors and ways of thinking. I'm curious where this conversation will lead you.
