Here’s a little secret: Diets don’t work.
Study after study shows that dieting and food restriction actually lead to more weight gain. As many as two-thirds of dieters will gain back more weight than they lost.
More importantly, preoccupations with your eating habits and weight can undermine your happiness and your relationships.
In our Anti-Diet Course, we’ll help you build a better relationship with food and your body. Our approach is backed by science and we are going to supercharge it with meditation.
You'll get a short daily video from our co-founder Dan Harris, joined by intuitive eating expert Christy Harrison.
Each video is followed by a meditation, about 10 minutes long, specifically designed to help you put into practice what you've learned in the videos - from re-learning what hunger feels like in your body to finding self-compassion when the “food police” show up in your mind.

Check Out the Anti-Diet Podcast Series
We kicked off the Anti-Diet Series on Monday, November 29 with actor and activist Jameela Jamil and intuitive eating expert Christy Harrison.
Jameel and Dan talk about her struggles with weight fatphobia and eating disorders since childhood and how to develop what she calls mental self-defense.
They also talk about the difference between body positivity and body neutrality, how Jameela handles the scrutiny and toxicity of social media and how men can play a positive role in a world with profound double standards when it comes to looks.
In this interview, we talk about Christy’s personal experience with disordered eating, the problem with diet culture, the deep historical roots of diet culture, the scientific evidence against dieting, and the ten principles of intuitive eating.
