Why you don’t have to be “That Girl”

Why Diet Culture is so Damaging!


Perhaps people of all shapes and sizes pop into your head when you think about a “healthy” person. They’re reasonably happy, they eat a balanced diet, don’t drink (too) much alcohol and they probably have a fairly active lifestyle. Alternatively however, we may subconsciously think of someone who is quite small. Or should I sayContinue reading “Why Diet Culture is so Damaging!”
