Health first

It’s funny how people always shame fat people under the guise of caring of their health, but when someone loses weight they’re told they look good, and not that they look healthy. πŸΈβ˜•

 

The emphasis on aesthetics, across the genders, encourages body dysmorphia and unhealthy body images. Fitness magazines have articles month in, month out, filled with unhealthy crash diets.

 

Women’s Health has banned the phrase “bikini body” from its magazines because it’s a misnomer. They have also decided to stop giving advice on how to “drop 2 dress sizes” because they have realised it promotes unhealthy body expectations.
