@wellnessalexis says You’re Too Smart to Diet

Alexis Barber of @Wellnesslexis is 21-year-old Black content creator, and she’s decided that both she and you are too smart to diet. Coming from a low income family, her “smarts” unlocked scholarships to go to elite private schools and earn an Ivy League degree. Being “smart” became her identity, and when she couldn’t “master her weight” she turned to dieting. But at age 21, amidst a pandemic, she had had enough, realizing she is enough-- and that she’s actually TOO smart to diet.
