Body Image Nutrition Therapy and Treatment in the St. Louis Area, Missouri, and Illinois

Restore your Relationship with Food and Body with a Body Image Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

What is body image in nutrition?

Body image can play a big role in how one nourishes themselves based on how they feel in their skin. Individuals with poor body image may struggle to fuel themselves properly in an attempt to control their weight or shape. In addition, individuals may avoid certain foods they deem “bad” or “unhealthy”  which in turn contributes to a feeling ick in their skin.

What factors influence how people define their body image?

Factors can include the media such as movies, magazines and social media. Family dynamics that support the idea that “thinner” or “smaller” equates to healthier or peer influence regarding comments made about a person's body can place pressure on the desire to look a certain way. Furthermore, bullying, teasing or trauma related to weight can also contribute to the way a person may define themselves in their skin.

Love Yourself

What helps improve body image?

Cultivating a positive and accepting relationship with one's own body regardless of its size, shape, or appearance. It’s definitely a journey that does not heal itself overnight. Working towards self compassion, challenging negative thoughts, and focusing on health versus appearance are some ways to get started with improving body image.
