Facing Facts: Golda Poretsky Breaks Down the Desire for "Thinness"

Golda Poretsky has written an excellent blog post on her blog Body Love Wellness where she takes a hard look at the desire for "thinness" in America:
"People often talk about thinness and the desire for thinness as a given. We are taught to equate thinness with health, attractiveness, ease of dating, etc. We’re taught that being thin is a worthy goal, the holy grail of a life well-lived.

So I want to break apart this thinness myth right now. I want to look at the reality of our collective desire to be thinner, how we’re taught to achieve it, and how using a Health At Every Size approach (the one I use with my clients) can help you achieve the desires underpinning your thinness desires." - from Golda's post
