The statistics reported about women and body image are very startling!
For example, “A survey of college students found that they would prefer to marry an embezzler, drug user, or shoplifter than someone who is fat.” Gaesser, Glenn A., PhD. Big Fat Lies: The truth about your weight and your health. Gurze Books, 2001.
Our culture has serious and irrational issues with how we view people who are overweight and a large number of people will go to unhealthy lengths that harm their entire well-being in the pursuit to be skinny. We don’t have to harm ourselves or subscribe to such outrageous belief systems. Rather, we ought to love who we are first no matter where we are in life. Eating well helps people feel good from the inside out no matter what weight a person currently is experiencing. When we feel good, we look good.
