In a culture highly influenced by social media and advertising, many Americans distrust their bodies and dislike their shapes. The cognitive dissonance between health and body image can lead to disharmony in our minds, which can influence our dietary choices, work productivity, and personal relationships. In this class, you will learn the science behind body perception and its impact on diet, simple tricks to restructure your thinking about food choices, and how to apply what you learn to your daily life for optimal health in the New Year. You will participate in hands-on activities using evidence-based strategies to combat cognitive dissonance, increase body appreciation, and set effective goals for personal health.

Instructor: Gretchen George, PhD, RD is an Assistant Professor in Nutrition at San Francisco State University. Prior to her faculty position, she worked at Stanford Prevention Research Center as a Research Dietitian on multiple weight loss studies. She currently focuses her work on body dissatisfaction, environmental stress, and health risk factors in overweight and obese youth.
