When women come together to discuss success the topics often turn to dieting and exercise. Here’s a wake up call about the need to look beyond eating and exercise when we are seeking empowerment and career success. It’s time to stop letting diet culture hold us back! Here’s what Carole Knits has to say:

I couldn’t help but thinking, if this were a room full of men talking about good habits they would not be talking about weight loss. They would not be concerned about how they look in a particular dress or how to make time to do their hair after they finish at the gym and are on their way to work. Instead, they would be talking about ways to tackle challenging assignments. They would be talking about using good habits to secure promotions. They would be brainstorming about actions to take and ways to get ahead.
