Fat Talk Free Week at NutriFormance!
Dates: October 15 – 19
Fat Talk Free Week is a five day effort to increase public knowledge of the dangers of fat talk and the effect it has on people’s self esteem and confidence.
Fat talk describes all statements made in everyday conversations that emphasize the thin ideal and add to people’s dissatisfaction with their body.
· “I’m so fat”
· “I need to lose at least 5 pounds”
· “That person is too fat to be wearing that”
· A statement that still emphasizes the need to be thin can sound positive.
An example is “You look great! Did you lose weight?”
Check out the NutriFormance board for daily tips and challenges on how to be positive about yourself and others to help eliminate fat talk!
