I encourage anyone who has ever struggled with dieting, weight loss, body image, and achieving the ‘thin ideal’ to read this book. It will change the way you think about health and your body 💯

As women attempt to take up more space politically, they are forced to take up less space physically. These patriarchal norms are internalized by even the most powerful women in Hollywood and it is SAD.

We send msgs to women that suggest hunger and food is bad, and that our bodies must remain as small as possible...and then wonder why so many young women grow up hating themselves.

It's evil how patriarchal society makes women anxious & depressed then diagnoses them w/ anxiety & depression as if the fault is in their brain chemistry. These conditions are real but they should be seen as understandable responses to our circumstances, not flaws in our design.

We need to differentiate between what’s “normal” and what’s “normative” – because they’re not the same. Intuitive eating, for instance, is normal. Dieting, on the other hand, is normative. |

“Wellness” is a capitalist-driven cover for healthism. “Wellness” isn’t accessible – it’s made for people with the most privilege. Fuck willpower. What about financial access? |

When we use food and exercise as go-to managers of anxiety, to the point that our obsession with following the rules is how we define happiness and success, we are missing out on our lives. We are not living holistically or authentically. |

“Vampires exist. Haven’t you ever met someone who is only looking out for what they can get? Zombies exist. A lot of them work in offices and say things like “Let’s unpack this” and “This changes everything.” If you were a spooky creature, what would you be?”

“Unlike, say, debating whether to cheat on your partner or a test, deciding what to eat versus what not to eat isn’t a moral dilemma. You don’t need an external excuse or extenuating circumstance to eat what you’d like” -
