  • Help your participants understand:

  • Weight stigma – what is it and how does it impact them?
  • Body acceptance and the concept of set-point theory – not everyone is meant to be a size 4, and that is okay
  • Size does not determine your worth or health
  • Food should not have moral values attached to it – there are no “good” or “bad” foods
