The Nourished Mind

The Nourished Mind: Building your Nutrition IQ one book at a time

Welcome to The Nourished Mind

The Nourished Mind is a book study and virtual community group for folks who are looking to learn, challenge their beliefs around diet culture and weight, and/or simply come together and chat with like-minded individuals in a safe, weight-neutral environment.

If you’ve been trying to learn more about the impact of diet culture, how to improve health without dieting, and ultimately how to improve your relationship with food and your body, you know how difficult it can be when it feels like everyone else close to you is still knee-deep in dieting. The Nourished Mind is a safe and supportive virtual community group that brings together anyone looking to ditch diet culture and expand their knowledge through reading and discussion.

I'm hoping to run the next Nourished Mind in November 2023. If you want to get on the waitlist and be able to participate in selecting the next book we're going to study, enter your name and email address below.

    If you're someone who...

    • Is open minded and eager to learn more about weight bias and myths about weight and health
    • Enjoys reading or wants to read more but needs a little encouragement
    • Wants to improve your relationship with food and your body
    • Is looking for a safe and supportive community to share ideas, thoughts, and experiences in a place without judgment
    • Is not afraid to get a little uncomfortable challenging your own beliefs around health

      You're in the right place!

        Frequently Asked Questions

        Do I have to buy my own copy of the book?
        Yes, the book is not provided and you will have to buy your own copy. This allows you to purchase the book in whatever format you feel will best suit your learning style - Book, eBook, or Audiobook. We encourage you to purchase your copy of the book from a local bookstore or even make use of your local library.

        Weight and health can be very personal topics, how are you ensuring that the discussions are safe and supportive?
        In order to register for the Nourished Mind, participants will have to agree to a code of conduct in order to ensure that everyone is able to learn and chat in a safe environment. That code of conduct will be modified and agreed upon in the first session so that participants feel comfortable sharing with one another. That being said, with any learning that challenges long-standing beliefs, there may be some discomfort that arises. While this is normal and expected, the comfort of participants in marginalized bodies will be prioritized over others.

        What if I don't have time to read the book? Can I still participate?
        While you will get the most out of each discussion if you've read the sections of the book being discussed, you can still attend and participate in the discussion even if you didn't get a chance to read this week.

        What if I start the program but don't like it?
        If you register for the program, but change your mind, you can check out the refund policy here.
