INDD

Today is International No Diet Day (founded in 1992). The purpose of this day is-
  • Celebrate the beauty and diversity of ALL our natural sizes & shapes
  • Affirm everyBODY’s right to self-esteem, respect and emotional and physical well-being
  • Declare a personal one-day moratorium on diet/weight obsession
  • Learn the facts about weight-loss dieting, health, and body size
  • Recognize how dieting perpetuates violence against women
  • Honor the victims of eating disorders and weight-loss surgery
  • Help end weight discrimination, sizism and fatphobia
You might be thinking “they have a national day for EVERYTHING now” and although that may be true, every national day that helps just one person who does celebrate it is very important.
The world truly needs to be more empathetic.
