The only reason we have such hangups about the “right” body shape is decades of media images telling us what we should look like.

Decades after buying all the slim fast, weight loss, beach body crap they sell, our metabolisms are screwed up and that’s before health issues.

Body positivity might be the only hope we have to get ourselves out of the ugly cycle that the “profit from pain” cycle created.
