The world
doesn’t need more
weight loss coaches

It doesn’t need more therapists recommending WW or Noom, teachers and school curriculums colluding with diet culture, organizations upholding anti-fat bias, or fatphobia in eating disorder treatment centers.

The world needs you.

Your brave voice.

Your radical presence.

Your bold advocacy.

Join our community of Body Trust Specialists who are advocating for and/or providing compassionate, weight-inclusive models of care.
Almost everything I have learned about body freedom and body trust – radically accepting my body – I learned from Hilary and Dana.

As a fat black woman society has always told me I am too much, and less than, at the same time.

Body Trust and the folks at Center for Body Trust helped to teach that my body, and being just as I am, is powerful, needed and necessary.”
