Have you ever wondered what might be possible
if you were able to trust your body again?
You’re exhausted by the constant struggle of trying to
manage your body, your food, and your self.
You’ve spent years – maybe even decades – striving to make
yourself smaller and more acceptable to others.
You’re longing for a supportive, understanding community of people on the same journey – people capable of honoring your emotional and spiritual needs.
Maybe you even feel like your body is
out of control, disgusting, and not even part of you.

But there is another way...
We want those things for you, too..
We are Hilary Kinavey, MS, LPC and Dana Sturtevant, MS, RD, the co-founders of Be Nourished, a leading voice in the mission to address body oppression and heal body shame.
Since 2005, we’ve been holding space for people looking to let go of chronic patterns of dieting, disordered eating, and weight cycling. Our passion is helping people find a way to truly heal and move towards a compassionate, sustainable form of self care. In a culture dominated by weight bias and body oppression, we believe reclaiming Body Trust® is the key to feeling psychologically and physically nourished.
Body Trust is a homecoming—a return to the innate wisdom of your own embodied experience—your body’s messages, cues, desires, hungers, and rhythms, knowing that access to this wisdom will vary for everyone over time depending on how much resourcing is available. Much of what we are taught about living in a body is about doing things to and on the body instead of for and with the body. When the very wise ways we’ve adapted and coped for our own survival run counter to the mainstream idea about what a good person or good body should be or do, we are presented with an impossible choice: become buried in shame and self-blame or choose an identity that limits our ability to know and express who we truly are.
We also believe we’re all born with trust and connection to our bodies. Along the way, though, this trust is corroded by painful experiences, that are exacerbated by frustrating cultural messages and expectations. We do our best to cope with it all. We’re left feeling like our bodies are broken and out of control, and our attempts to “fix” them just become an endless to-do project.
We understand. We’ve worked with thousands of people just like you, and we’ve been fine-tuning this work for a long time.
That’s why we’ve created a course to help you stop the endless cycle of food restriction and body shame.
No More Weighting: The Body Trust® E-Course
A six-week online course to help you rebuild body trust, rethink what the “problem” really is, and create a path that honors your physical health and emotional well-being.
Once you’ve completed the course, you’ll have:
What you get with No More Weighting:
We understand you’ve already spent years trying so hard. We understand the struggle. But please know you haven’t failed because you can’t do it; you’ve failed because the plans out there have failed you. How many of these plans focused on healing your relationship with food and your body? Have they ever helped you sustain a lasting change you were happy with?
That’s what we thought. This time, you have an opportunity. This time, you can invest in yourself, instead of investing in the diet industry.
Kindness and compassion are the way forward.
No more weighting.
