Diet plays an extremely important role in our health. The problem is - a lot of us don’t really have a healthy relationship with food. Because of diet culture, people (especially women) find it such a challenge to truly love their bodies.
Christyna Johnson is a wellness influencer that dismantles the diet culture and teaches her followers to confront their relationship with food and work on having a positive body image. She is a registered dietician nutritionist, so she definitely knows what she’s talking about.
