“Diet culture” refers to a set of beliefs that values thinness, appearance, and shape above health & well-being. Additionally, the concept places importance on restricting calories, normalizes negative self-talk, and labels certain foods as “good” and “bad”.
Countless moms face inordinate pressure to get their body back in the weeks and months after having a baby. It is time mothers take back the postpartum period and embrace body appreciation during the postpartum period and beyond.
