We, as women, have historically been molded into different shapes by society and expectation. Although we have made great strides in creating healthy and beautiful personal, political, and professional space for ourselves, we still find ourselves looking for self-worth on the bathroom scale. What does the Torah say about a woman's body and how it should look? Where can we find true self-worth and why should we seek it?

Yaffi Lvova is an experienced registered dietitian nutritionist and a proud mom of twins plus one. She graduated magna cum laude with a bachelors of science in nutrition and dietetics from Arizona State University in 2010 and went on to complete the Iowa State University dietetic internship. After her twins were born in 2013, she opened Baby Bloom Nutrition, focused on prenatal, maternal, and 0-3 nutrition.
