Do the words ‘clean eating’ send you into a cold sweat? Ever experienced ‘concern trolling’?
Tired of swatting away the same judgey remarks, the Anti Diet Riot Club is gathering a panel of experts on diet, nutrition and food this Tuesday to bust a few bothersome body myths and thrash out the most common health-based criticisms levelled at the body positivity movement.
Addressing such concerns as whether plus-size models like Tess Holliday should be welcome on the covers of magazines and how to respond to the familiar refrain of ‘but what about your HEALTH?’ the evening should be a welcome antidote to the diet culture that so often dominates the debate on body shape and health.
Whether you’re looking for some handy zingers and facts to help spread the body acceptance message or you’re yet to be convinced that these movements are compatible with a healthy lifestyle, the evening looks to be a fascinating learning experience for anyone with a body.
