It’s International No Diet Day – Go Read Some Shapely Prose
For International No Diet Day, and if you’re not already, you should be reading Shapely Prose, a blog about fat acceptance. If reading the very words “fat acceptance” made you gasp, you doubly need to read it.
A couple of my favorite posts (from Harding and her co-bloggers):
- Don’t You Realize Fat is Unhealthy?
- The BMI Project – a slide show of images of women alongside their BMI category
- Dear Oprah – Just read it. Now.
- You’re Not Fat, Redux, Redux – Because responding to people with the expected “you’re not fat!” is not exactly helpful.
Shapely Prose founder Kate Harding has a new book out with co-author Marianne Kirby, Lessons from the Fat-o-Sphere: Quit Dieting and Declare a Truce with Your Body (which is titled “Screw Inner Beauty” in the Australian version!).
