Fat Acceptance


With tons of information out there on "Fat Acceptance" does it do more harm than good? Being body positive and body fat are two different topics. South Beach Diet may work for one but not the other.

How can one confuse having a body positive attitude than with a "Fat Acceptance One? Are you really fat and happy? Most women are in emotional pain around their body size but to hail on for "Fat Acceptance" is a no-no, neither should one be ostracized for be overweight or fat.

This is more than just a debatable topic of "Fat Acceptance" what about health. Can you really sit and tell yourself you like wearing a size 22 and find the extra "Pinch an Inch" to be conformable and contrite? Can you feel both? Ask yourself, deep inside, how you really feel.

So where is the "happy medium"? Eye Candy yes, waif like magazine models perhaps not, but some women are naturally thin. Shows like "The Biggest Loser", "Fat Actress" make fun of those who do not fit into the cookie cuter world of what we deem as "Eye Candy".

We should all be accepted and not ostracized for size, and looks. "Size acceptance" and "Fat Acceptance" are two different issues here. Yes, promote size, we all come in different shapes, but promote "Fat"? What about health?

"We strongly condemn any diet marketing strategy based on guilt and unrealistic expectations," says Peggy Howell, a spokesperson for the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance. "Such approaches cause untold suffering to fat people by ruining their self-esteem."

This would fall under stapling!?!

However some sites, and blogs take this too far, can you be happy, fat, and un-healthy at any size?

Why make this harder than it has to be, follow the BMI chart. However getting within our range can be difficult, while women and men, work their way from a high BMI to a lower healthy one, we should accept people of all sizes, "Size Acceptance" but not promote fat. Promote Health, Size and not Fat.
