Food Freedom: Learning to trust your body with nutritionnist, Robin Glance
Have you heard about the Health at Every Size (HAES®) movement? Despite what the media and some health professionals may tell you, losing weight is not the answer to health, as health is not defined by body size or shape. We are born with a natural instinct to feed our body what it needs – following diets or “food rules” only teaches us to go against this instinct. No diet out there knows your unique requirements. Join nutritionist Robin Glance and learn how to let go of restriction and tune in to your true nutritional needs."

She doesn't believe in diets, she believes that true health begins with real food, and enjoying what we eat.
