Episode Info

Episode Info:

The Body Image Movement can only be described as a revolution.

And it began in 2013 when Taryn Brumfitt posted a ‘non-traditional’ Before + After photo one night on Facebook.

On the left, the ‘before’ photo showed ‘ripped’ Taryn on stage at a bodybuilding competition.

On the right, the ‘after’ photo showed a ‘softer’ Taryn with visible rolls around her tummy looking content and happy.

The switching of the photos (not to mention Taryn’s obviously content and happy nature in the ‘after’ photo) clearly resonated.

Overnight the image went viral and within 12 months, it had been viewed by 100 million people!

That led Taryn to produce the ‘Embrace’ documentary which explored why so many people (and women in particular) hate their bodies.

She’s also founded the Body Image Movement (BMI) which is on a mission to help people love and embrace their body, regardless of shape, size, ethnicity or ability.
