We’re told to love and accept ourselves, yet we’re bombarded with images of perfect bodies on social media, TV, and in advertising, suggesting that success in life and love aligns with appearance, as though the world were not made up of many types of bodies. We talk with Randy Susan Meyers, author of Waisted, a fictional account of women who go to great lengths to lose weight. Stacey Richmond, a registered dietician and member of the Massachusetts Eating Disorder Association, also joins us in the studio to talk about improving our relationship with food and ourselves.
