Whether you're struggling with disordered eating, looking to eat healthy at BC, or change perceptions around body image, our nutrition programs can help! Sign up for a nutrition counseling session, attend the Body Project, meet with a Wellness Coach, or browse our resources.

The Body Project

The Body Project is a peer-led body acceptance program to help college women resist cultural pressures to conform to the appearance ideal. Participation has been shown to reduce negative body image and disordered eating behaviors in young women. Male-identified students are also invited to participate.

The Body Project is run in small groups of women (typically between 6-12) by trained Peer Leaders. The time commitment for participating is two, two-hour sessions spaced about one week apart. These sessions will be conducted over Zoom.

“I've been listening to my body more - eating what I want when I want and exercising the way I want to. I've also become more aware of the negative body talk that gets thrown around during everyday life. I think awareness is the first step toward change because as I become more confident in myself and my perception of my own body, I can encourage others to do the same and to stop bashing themselves and other girls simply for the way they look.”
