  • Tying appearance to self-worth & personal identity
  • External drivers of negative body image
  • Root causes of obesity
  • Why “self-responsability” isn’t helpful at scale
  • Steps in modifying body image
  • Self-talk: moving from negative to neutral to positive
  • Can non-weight loss interventions improve health to the same degree as those that lead to weight loss in “at risk” groups (e.g. those with diabetes or with obesity)?
