    Is Promoting Big, Beautiful Women Unhealthy? - Weight Center - Everyday Health



    Is the notion of 'accepting' all 'body types' as valid and worthy of respect and all that a good idea? Does advertising and media that promotes the 'beauty' of 'full-sized' people promote as unhealthy an outlook as those who suggest everyone needs to be super-thin? Is this just a way of 'celebrating' giving up on the battle against obesity that is afflicting the nation like a plague?

    no acceptance of all body types is not a good thing.....obesity is a problem and a health threat...
    it is sad to see young kids that are grossly overweight from playing video games....this whole thing always leads to the great subject of how we are never letting kids out in nature....obesity is not as simple as diet

    its more lifestyle.....

    last child in the woods is an excellent read on the subject of children being removed from nature

    My doctor tells me that fat isn't healthy.

    But I think he's a stooge for the skinny industry.

    but on the other extreme .....i saw my first real life anorexic this weekend....when she walked you could see the veins in her legs...not the color but the veins popping out....she had no body fat...no breasts...no fat....she was tanned too....

    remember tanned is associated with being healthy when it is not ....
