Dr. Adia Gooden and Lifestyle Influencer Chante Burkett joined ESSENCE Senior Entertainment Editor, Brande Victorian, for a candid conversation about maintaining your curves and your health simultaneously at the 2021 virtual ESSENCE Wellness House.
Presented by Nordstrom, the discussion heard the ladies unpack several important layers related to the topic, including the importance of managing your mental health while learning to love your body; the common misconception that all curvy or plus size women work out to lose weight only; and how embracing your own health journey instead of trying to mimic someone else’s can be the first step towards progress. Check out the video above to watch their chat in full.
