Virtual over Zoom
If you knew you were going to leave this earth in a year… would you still spend it at war with food and your body?
I hope your answer to that question is a resounding NO.
Because you have way more important things to do. And that’s true whether you live 1 more year or another 5 or 50 years.
We’ve been sold a lie that dieting and trying to be skinny is a valuable use of our time. That it makes us more valuable. It can be tough to even realize those messages are lies because most of us grew up with them since we were young. We don’t know any other way.
But there is another way. It’s called Anti-Diet.
If you’re absolutely sick of the dieting rollercoaster but aren’t sure how to get off the ride, this event is for you.
This can be the start to a whole new way of relating to food and your body, and you don’t even have to leave your house.
Think of this virtual (Mini)Retreat as your Anti-Diet starter pack. It will give you the information, support, and resources to lay a foundation of food and body freedom.
Over the course of the day, we’re going answer aaaall the questions, including…
- What does Anti-Diet really mean? (hint: It’s not what Noom says it is)
- I’m interested in giving up dieting, but what if I’m worried how that will affect my weight?
- Is being Anti-Diet unhealthy?
- What if everyone around me still diets?
- How do I even get started?
- PLUS, there’s a bonus Q&A where you can ask any questions we don’t answer during the sessions!
Here’s how we’re going to roll in this event:
- The Anti-Diet (Mini)Retreat is a virtual via Zoom so it’s more convenient than having to travel somewhere.
- Pop in to the Meet & Greet on Thursday if you’d like to connect with the event leaders and other participants beforehand.
- You will get over 5 hours of content plus debrief sessions, so come prepared to learn and be inspired.
- Make some awesome new friends who are also starting this Anti-Diet journey—you don’t have to do this alone!
- Learn next steps and resources to build on your new food and body freedom foundation.
Kick dieting to the curb!
Yo-yo dieting is like going back that toxic ex over and over…
It’s time to break up for good.

Who is the (Mini)Retreat for?
This event is for you if you’re an Anti-Diet newbie looking to better understand what being Anti-Diet is all about and where to start.
If you are tired of feeling guilty, anxious, stressed or deprived around food.
If you’ve been on so many diets, the thought of going on another one makes you want to burst into tears or break out in hives. Or both.
If you are ready to stop obsessing over taking up as little space as possible, this event is for YOU.
WHO ARE THE LEADERS?
Our Retreat leaders, Cherie and Lynnly, are not only professionals in the fields of body acceptance, disordered eating, and intuitive eating—we are also recovered from our own struggles with food and body shame. We are unapologetic social justice warriors fighting weight stigma and advocating for the rights of people in larger bodies. Read more about Cherie and Lynnly.
