Dr. Conason Psy.D.

Blog

The Anti-Diet blog is aimed at helping people radically change their relationship with food and their body. I cover the gamut of topics impacting the way that we feel about our body and food. My posts are inspired by scientific research, pop culture, my clinical and personal experiences, and just about anything else that may dance across my mind. If you like The Anti Diet blog, you may also enjoy my blog Eating Mindfully, hosted by Psychology Today.
