To start season 2, Nicola and Florence meet with Dr Lindsay Kite. Dr. Lindsay Kite is co-author of the book More Than a Body: Your Body Is an Instrument, Not an Ornament (2020, HarperCollins) and co-director of the nonprofit Beauty Redefined, alongside her identical twin sister Lexie Kite. Both received PhDs from the University of Utah in the study of female body image and have become leading experts in body image resilience and media literacy.
Lindsay and Lexie help girls and women recognize and reject the harmful effects of objectification in their lives through their social media activism (on Instagram @beauty_redefined), online course and facilitator program for dieticians and therapists (at morethanabody.org), and regular speaking engagements for people of all ages.
Together, Nicola, Florence and Lindsay talked about:
- body dissatisfaction and self-objectification in women and their implications on health
- why changing our bodies NOT the answer to a more positive body image
- how do we get out of the need to compare ourselves to others?
- health and fitness being disembodied from real life experiences for many
- how to cultivate body image resilience in recovery from HA
