Manage episode 327994263 series 2819693
Listen in to hear some accounts that folks have shared about their experiences with losing weight and the unsolicited comments they receive. Our culture values a smaller body to such an extent that sometimes serious diseases and hardships are overlooked in the praising of weight loss. These comments reinforce the lies that being thinner is always better further perpetuating weight stigma, discrimination, health disparities, and a toxic diet culture.
The stories I read in this episode were taken from the book More Than A Body by Lindsay Kite PhD and Lexie Kite PhD. You can find a copy here: https://tinyurl.com/ynd8u5e5
