USE SMALLER PLATES AND UTENSILS. It's that easy. Here's why. A lot of people use environmental cues to figure out when they've eaten enough. They know they're done when the bag or cup is empty. When the plate is clear. When they'v... Read more
Body positivity doesn't mean blowing sunshine up our skirts.
Tuesday, January 30, 2018      2 comments

I was reading yet another blog post by a "body positivity" social-media person about how hard it is for her to maintain her body positivity. She used imagery that I'm very familiar with out of that crowd: it's this daily struggle for her; she ha... Read more
We don't need to be afraid.

Saw a meme today that said that "4 out of 5 children are afraid of getting fat." That's a heartbreaking idea, but not for the same reason that fat acceptance people might think it is. In truth, this meme breaks my heart because nobody has t... Read more
Sheer delusion on full display in the "body positive" community.
Thursday, January 25, 2018      0 comments

There is nothing "body positive" about morbid obesity. The very name of it wasn't chosen at random to shame fat people. Something that is "morbid" in medical lingo is something that is going to seriously shorten a person's life and make them mis... Read more
Good news for Black people!
Tuesday, January 09, 2018      1 comments

For a long time, researchers thought that there was some "mystery factor" causing Black people to develop Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) at a much higher rate than white people did, even accounting for all the known risk factors--like especially obesity.... Read more
Facing reality is tough sometimes.

I was looking at some new research related to obesity--we're finding out so many new things about this topic!--and noticed something that really stood out to me. One thing I hear out of Fat Acceptance crusaders is that "fat people don't nee... Read more
The epidemic continues.

The epidemic of middle-aged, morbidly-obese white women continues apace, I see. This poor young woman was only 31 when she "died unexpectedly in her sleep."

Unpopular Opinion: Feminism and Fat Acceptance/HAES
Saturday, November 18, 2017      3 comments

I'm a feminist. Feminism has saved me from the oppression that religion imposed upon me for half my life, saved me from terrible and disastrous relationships, and sent me into a journey of self-discovery that led to my current life. I wouldn't b... Read more
Harvard Discovers the Real Risk of Diabetes.
Friday, November 03, 2017      0 comments

Well this is eye-opening. And SCARY, at least to me. It's about obesity's link to diabetes and it's another sobering motivation for me to maintain a healthy body weight. We've known for a long time that being obese -- as in technically obes... Read more
The pushback to HAES/FA continues apace.

Spotted this floating around the net and loved it. It's about a military guy who is about to get drummed out of service because he couldn't "make tape," which is military jargon for meeting the military's expectations for physical fitness and we... Read more
Abused kids are way more likely to grow up obese & addicted to food.
Friday, October 20, 2017      0 comments

Studies increasingly illustrate a correlation between childhood abuse (particularly sexual abuse) and later obesity and food addiction. It's not just your imagination, if you've noticed what I've noticed about the obese: they sure seem to have h... Read more
Body Shaming Works Both Ways.
Thursday, May 18, 2017      3 comments

If someone says they're against body shaming, but they still are happy to shame thin women, then they're not actually against body shaming. They're just against being the recipients of it. They're fine with handing it out; they just can't handle... Read more
Fantasy vs. Reality

I've been talking for a long time here about how totally inaccurate most folks are at counting calories, but I saw a blog post the other day that really brought home for me just how deceived we can be about intake if we're not using objective me... Read more

I ran across this awesome YouTube video that really tells it like it is, and does so in a really sweet and kindhearted way.

A short list of problems that obesity causes or worsens.
Friday, April 14, 2017      5 comments

"Health at Every Size," as it's commonly understood, is a myth and always was--it was originally just a scam used by opportunistic parasites to make money off of gullible fat women who don't want to take responsibility for themselves. "Fit but f... Read more
