I’m headed off to share the size acceptance message on Dr. Drew’s Show on HLN tonight at 6:00 with the amazing and beautiful Julianne Wotazik. We’ll also be hearing from MeMe Roth. So I figured, I’d get some of my data wrangled up to share with you. There are lots of wonderful sources where size acceptance data is gathered and posted on the web. So I’m just going to share some links with you:
Ragen Chastain offers some fantastic research on her blog on this posting (scroll down to the bottom of the post.)
The Association for Size Diversity And Health has a lot of great information posted here on their site.
And of course, there’s lots of research sited in my book.
There are literally thousands of research studies and articles embracing the Health At Every Size approach to wellness. Hopefully this small compendium will give you a jumping off place in your reading and allow you to draw your own conclusions.
Because you need to remember my dear chicklettes, it’s YOUR body, so YOU decide what is the best way to care for your body and yourself and love the skin you’re in.
