I’m a mother.
I know that I don’t just set an example for my son.
I set the first example.
I set the example that will influence his life in ways neither of us can predict.
What I say and do now will color what he says and does, even when he’s too old to remember the conversations we have, or can’t quite recall the details of how I react to life’s ups and downs.
As his mother, I choose what I teach him about his relationship with food, with his own body. I can have a chat with him about the commercials that make sugary cereals look like the ultimate life experience. I can show him the fun in choosing delicious foods, the joy in preparing them from scratch, and the pleasure in taking the time to savor what he creates.
But I also know that there’s a world out there that isn’t on the same page. That doesn’t have the same values. That hasn’t learned what I’d like for him to learn.
I don’t say that in an “us against the world” tone. I say that with the understanding that the things I teach my son are the very things that the rest of the world is hungry for, as well.
10 years ago, with the Oscar-nominated documentary Super Size Me, I saw just how much people wanted to know more about food and health. Once they were aware, they wanted more.
But the knowledge alone isn’t enough.
I realized that, although Super Size Me shone a light on a very important issue, we still hadn’t given people the tools to be able to make real changes.
I’ve dedicated the last decade to helping people make changes in their own lives. Now I want to make that mission even bigger.
I’m on a mission to #FixFood.
In celebration of Super Size Me‘s 10-year anniversary, I’m bringing together 30+ of the hottest leaders in health and nutrition (including some of the old voices that helped to shape our documentary in the first place).
Join us for the Super Size Me 10-Year #FixFood Series (your ticket is free)
On this telesummit, we’ll be covering 3 main aspects of the #FixFood movement:
- Fixing more of our own food at home (and how to make it fast, simple & fun).
- Fixing your relationship with food and emotional eating (so you can experience true wellness).
- Fixing the food culture we all live in (because this movement needs to go into our schools and communities).
I’d like to make one thing clear–
This is NOT your typical telesummit.
This event is about real change – and how you can make it happen in your own life and the world around you.
I’m bringing on experts who are on the ground, already working in our communities and in the school systems (like Michelle Bouchard of Dr. Oz’s HealthCorps). With other experts like JJ Virgin, John Robbins, Kris Carr, Joel Harper, Dr. Mark Hyman, Leanne Ely, Cynthia Pasquella, and so many more, we’ll cover a huge range of topics.
You’ll walk away with the tools you need in order to need to lose those extra pounds, or discover the joy in cooking and savoring a healthy meal, or know precisely how to educate your own children about nutrition – despite the messages that surround them.
With the #FixFood movement, we can set an example for ourselves, our families, and our communities.
I truly hope you’ll join us.
P.S. The Super Size Me 10-Year Fix Food Series goes live (online), March 10 – 14, but you can get your free ticket now. Take a look at the experts, and learn more about the #FixFood movement here.
