61. Jill Cruz - “Love & Loss” - Shaping A New Self-care Paradigm

It’s time to integrate ourselves into the self-care industry and reshape it with compassion! Jill Cruz is a fellow podcast host and CEO of a company that helps women lose weight and learn about their bodies in a pleasurable and sustainable way. Women have been the target of the victimizing weight loss industry since its conception. The values of this primitive industry are founded in negative values like capitalizing off fear and discomfort, and it’s time to create a new paradigm. The context of weight loss and health should be centered on education, acceptance, and gaining confidence and control over your body. The most efficient way to begin your weight loss journey is from a place of love!
