Congratulations! thank you for joining and being part of the solution - to undoing the damage caused by toxic diet culture.
What Nutriri is and isn't, what this course is and isn't...
we are not exclusively for one body stereotype
this is not a 'body transformation' project
this is not a target setting / goal driven endeavour
this is not a 'just think positively' activity
this is not a 'be the best you' striving
this is not a '________' (your choice*)
we're here for....
everybody fat, thin, tall, short, any age and gender/nb
a discovery of self care from self acceptance/love
finding your version of food and body ease
an embrace life just as it is experience together
a self forgiveness endeavour
a '_______' (your choice*)
prerequisites for joining...
readiness to (re)discover your version of food and body ease
The content is curated from the lived experience of many; gathered during our 3 year action research phase - basically we started an 'in person' peer support group and listened a lot.
Some content is sourced from academia and referenced as such. The real 'work' will be co-created together during our weekly or monthly mentor calls.
We encourage healthy debate and comment within the course itself, membership posts and live calls. We ask a few basic courtesies...
ask open questions (give advice only if asked)
practice empathy (see through their eyes the best you can)
share your insights freely - no judgement here
The core of this work is to equip us with the skills to respond and react differently to how we might currently, and in the past.
So if we've felt shamed, criticised, pressured, blamed for our actions or inactions, then the course aims to help with that.
The peer support that you'll experience here is non-clinical, if you feel a more clinical approach is for you right now; we've partnered with Dr Julian to offer that service. And we would always recommend a visit to your own medical doctor.
Trigger Warning: Self and food discussion can be very triggering to many, the aim of Nutriri is to share actual lived experience with honesty. The content may not necessarily come from a doctor, therapist or expert on mental health conditions & disorders. If you notice that something is beginning to trigger you, first stop reading/listening/watching - then if you feel you can share (anonymously) please do so - this will greatly inform everyone's learning.
If you are currently following a diet plan, do not make any swift changes, until ready to do so.
And we get it! if you've been spending hard earned cash/time on a weight change regimen, then you are bound to be very protective of your choice to do so. And that choice is certainly not judged here. In fact, we seek out those who might be 'resolute dieters', to make use of our mentoring alongside whatever they're choosing right now.
Meeting everyone right where they're at - on a diet/off a diet, post/pre-surgery, on/off a health kick - is the kind of inclusivity we thrive on.
Over the course/membership we'll gently explore what it means, *individually, to stop feeling controlled by the ways we've learnt to behave around food.
We are not here to food or diet shame any individual, just to expose the wider impact on society from a mass 'you are not good enough, buy our product' landscape.
