Fat Talk: Parenting in the Age of Diet Culture

The Elliott Bay Book Company

Buy Book

Diet culture is a term that describes the endemic and harmful effects of upholding certain beliefs around food consumption, weight, and health.

For instance, we assume that a thin body is a healthy body and that a fat person must, in turn, be lazy or always desire a thinner body. In reality, the misinformation, body-shaming, and policing that surrounds diet culture, only serves to increase mental health issues, disordered eating, and harmful misconceptions in popular culture.
