I’m not sure how I feel about the idea of people taking up the idea that “being fat” really is a disease, but at least somebody’s digging into some of the complexities of the what’s going on.
The most unhealthy I’ve ever been was also the thinnest I’ve ever been.
Related note: Women who feel good about their bodies are more likely to eat well.
Gee, you think?
As a former binge eater, I can tell you that a lot of the binge triggers have to do with stress, carb addiction, and – a really low sense of self-worth. Why should I take care of myself, my body, if I’m fat and therefore worthless?
I really want the way we talk about bodies to change, because this shit is really counterproductive. Self-hate sells a lot of diet products, make-up and hand lotion, but it pretty much kills you in the quality of life department..
