Embracing Discomfort in Healing with Jessica Wilson

Jessica Wilson, MS, RD joined Aaron Flores and I on the Dietitians Unplugged podcast to generously share her wisdom about how we need to create more inclusivity in the non-diet, Health at Every Size and eating disorder worlds. She talked about the inadequacy of dietetics education around trauma and what real nutrition looks like (vs the “calories in/calories out” paradigm). She also discussed her past involvement with the Health at Every Size Movement and the challenges she encountered there, including an early lack of inclusivity beyond body size, and what needs to happen to continue to help create forward movement in the area of social justice.

Jessica Wilson is a Registered Dietitian working in private practice, and with the college population. In private practice she works with clients to learn to eat without having a road map for their choices, and instead to learn to become fun and flexible in their eating habits. In her consultation she drives progress and advancement in the eating disorder field by fostering curiosity, building capacity for change, and inviting constructive challenge. She centers and elevates the narratives and lived experiences of individuals with marginalized identities and honors that our bodies and our histories inform how each of us show up and share space.
