It’s okay if you like frozen mashed bananas, but they don’t make ice cream.
It’s okay if you like medjool dates, but they don’t make caramel.
It’s okay if you like chocolate brownie Clif bars, but they aren’t actual brownies.
It’s okay if you like health food, but remember that it’s okay if you like other food too. It’s okay if you eat both. It’s okay if you don’tlike health food.
It’s okay to eat whatever the fuck you want.
I disagree with policing what people eat, but I don’t like the fact that this ‘fat acceptance’ movement has gone so far that reasonable suggestions are seen as ‘fatphobic’. It’s simply not HEALTHY to be carrying around so much weight that it’s impairing your daily activities or simple tasks. I don’t know if obesity makes up for that much of the world’s health problems, but don’t just snap and snarl at people when they tell you your life is at risk when you hit a certain weight.
Do whatever the fuck you want, but believe it or not, some people DO actually care about your health, and blood pressure, heart problems, and diabeties aren’t anything to fuck around with.
—-> It is not your place to lecture people about their health or potential health risks.
—-> It is not your place to give unwarranted health advice to strangers who did not ask for it and who are obviously not interested in it.
—-> No one is obligated to be “healthy” just because you, a complete stranger, think that their life choices are somehow illegitimate or unworthy.
People know that obesity can potentially generate health problems. People know if they’re already sick or experiencing medical issues. People know what is going on with their own bodies - They do not need you to copy/paste the same inane information at them repeatedly. Do you really think there’s any fat person out there who isn’t aware of how much the world wants them to lose weight? There’s a multi-million dollar industry that’s dedicated to telling us over and over again how horrible and evil fat is - When you point out a person’s fat and lecture them about blood pressure and diabetes, do you honestly think that you’re telling them anything new?
Especially considering that body shaming has been proven to be outright harmful towards the average person’s health, how exactly do you think that bullying fat people is helpful? Because when you talk about how fat bodies aren’t acceptable and when you inherently decide that fat people are sick, that’s exactly what you’re doing: Bullying.
