Debunking Diets


Curious whether the latest diet trends can actually deliver what they promise? Let’s put the myths to rest around fad diets like keto, celery juicing, intermittent fasting, and ‘clean eating’. Join Non-Diet Dietitian Courtenay Vickers in this 2-hour workshop as she explores some of the science behind modern mainstream diets, looks at the diet-binge cycle and ultimately explains why these diets don’t work. This will be an interactive workshop where you will get to share some of the dieting myths you’ve heard and have them debunked once and for all. And just to be clear, this workshop is NOT promoting weight loss or any type of diet-culture lifestyle. 

Open to anyone.

Workshop content developed and facilitated by Courtenay Vickers of Courtenay Vickers RD.

*Content warning for those who may feel triggered by ‘diet talk’. However all content will be coming from a weight-inclusive, non-diet lens and with sensitivity for those with eating disorders.
