Build your body image resilience with Lindsay & Lexie Kite, PhD

See more. Be more.

Lindsay Kite, PhD & Lexie Kite, PhD are identical twins and leading experts in the study of body image and the harmful effects of objectification. As co-directors of the nonprofit Beauty Redefined and More Than a Body, LLC, Lindsay and Lexie teach people how to develop body image resilience through their unique, research-backed framework. Since 2009, they have reached millions of people through online education, social media activism, speaking events, and their book, More Than a Body (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2020).

“An indispensable resource for women of all ages, this is a guide to help us better connect to ourselves, to value ourselves, to love ourselves and ultimately, to be ourselves.”

—Chelsea Clinton

“As an expert immersed in this field for decades, it is rare that I come across writing that causes me to reflect differently on my own body—but More Than a Body does so powerfully. The Kite sisters’ work is not trite self-help or body positivity clichés; it is masterfully crafted research and real-life experience that represents a crucial step forward in our culture’s understanding of bodies and beauty ideals. The world needs this book.”

—Lindo Bacon, PhD, researcher and author of Radical Belonging, Body Respect, and Health at Every Size

“Loving yourself is easier said than done. I’ve been trying for years. There’s more to it than following a bunch of body-positive Instagram accounts or saying nice things to yourself in the mirror. Thankfully, Lindsay and Lexie have written a step-by-step guide on how to dismantle self-objectification and develop a positive body image. This is the perfect book for someone who wants to change their outlook but doesn’t know where to start.”

—Nikki Glaser, comedian, TV host, and host of the podcast You Up with Nikki Glaser

More Than a Body is a welcome salve for those who are weary of the internal war with their body. Through their groundbreaking body image resilience model, Lexie and Lindsay offer many practical ways to make peace with your body, showing how body image disruptions can be a pathway for healing, rather than provoke a descent into a shame spiral. Ultimately, readers will find real solutions to reunite with their whole, embodied selves.”

—Evelyn Tribole, MS, RDN, co-author of Intuitive Eating

“This book could save your life. In a lively and engaging style, Lindsay and Lexie discuss the grave harm caused by self-objectification and offer remedies that encourage resilience. A most welcome addition to the literature on body image.”
 
—Jean Kilbourne, feminist activist, media critic, author, and creator of the film series “Killing Us Softly: Advertising’s Image of Women”
