(We missed) International No Diet Day

We’ve missed International No Diet Day by two days (it’s 6 May), but I thought it was still worth a mention.

According to the Bust Magazine blog:

The day began in 1992 when Mary Evans Young, a British feminist, decided something needed to be done about eating disorders and the huge diet industry.

The point is to raise awareness of fat-phobia and size discrimination; fight the idea of the ‘’right’’ or ‘’ideal’’ body shape; fight the diet industry; and honor the victims of eating disorders and weight loss surgery.
