In Mauritania, Africa young girls are force feed a diet of camels milk and mullet to make them obese because only obese woman can get a husband. They are part of a culture that views skinny woman as sickly and undesirable.
These woman have shortened lifespan due to the combination of morbid obesity and lack of medical care.
While this may sound insane to western culture folks, it is no more insane than then our obsession with thinness in woman.
How lucky we are to have found a support system like Spark that promotes fitness and good health as we work towards our goal weight.
