Medical experts at Rosewood Centers for Eating Disorders, one of the nation’s top treatment centers, know summer months and the activities associated with the season are known to spark a negative body image. Both men and women’s anxiety skyrocket in warmer months when people are surrounded by outdoor activities such as pool parties, beach vacations and outdoor barbeques. Rosewood dieticians have some key tips for people to keep in mind to maintain a healthy perspective and lifestyle during the summer.
Rosewood’s Director of Nutritional Services, Cindy Elms, RD says, “Summer can be a challenging time for many of us when it comes to body image. We’ve pulled together some key ideas that touch on everything from nutrition to new ways of thinking about eating and our bodies.”
Four top tips to keep healthy and maintain a positive body image:
For additional reading on body image and eating, Rosewood recommends The Rules of Normal Eating by Karen R. Koenig; Big Fat Lies – The Truth about Weight and Health by Glenn A. Gaesser or Intuitive Eating by Evelyn Tribole. These books can help you see yourself functionally rather than focusing solely on appearance.
