A Conversation about Food Culture, Body Image, and Guilt in America
March 9, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Food is supposed to sustain and nourish us. But for too many of us, food now feels dangerous. Most of us believe the only way to eat well is to follow someone else’s rules. But we give up that freedom of choice without letting go of our guilt when our diet fails. Drawing on her book research and personal stories, Virginia Sole-Smith, author of the new book The Eating Instinct, will explore these key questions: How did we learn to eat this way? Why is it so hard to feel good about food? And how can we reconnect with our instinctive understanding of how to eat?
