  1. Well for the sake of discussion, do you think advocating “bigness” is good for the health of the population (for those who do not have a disease that makes them fat)?
    I’m not saying we should give grief to larger people at all, but I’m willing to advocate weight loss for the sake of health, as opposed to accepting their body. What do you think?

    • I see what you’re getting at, and I agree with you – to a degree.

      But I think it’s important to understand what health is. For many it’s not just about minimising body fat and athletic fitness. It’s about striking that hard-to-find balance between diet, exercise, mental health, and staying on top of absolutely everything else you have going on. It’s about managing life in a way that’s not self-destructive. Overall, “big” may still be the healthiest option on balance.

      To find that balance, where things are the most manageable combination… I imagine that’s really empowering.

      I have made respect (and envy) for anyone who’s found that balance and is rocking it.
