  • The constant pursuit was the problem in itself.
  • We must separate health from weight. Making a wellness mask for vanity.
  • There is NO evidence that larger bodies cause chronic illnesses.
  • “Blaming poor health on fatness is like blaming lung cancer on yellow teeth” Linda Bacon
  • Culturally we have given people the opportunity to make dieting a moralistic value.
  • We now know that dieting leads to bias thus making weight a status symbol
  • Stop saying healthy when you mean skinny
  • Trying to lose weight by dieting is like trying to win money with the lottery
  • Most people that have lost weight on a diet have had some rebound.
  • We must address our own weight bias
  • I was taught to fear weight gain and thin was rewarded

  • My mental health is avoiding the judgment of my food and body.
