Yes You Can Stop Fat Talk

You’ve probably heard about the movement to stop fat talk.

But maybe you’re not sure exactly what it is, or why you should consider stopping it.

So what’s to be done?

What’s worked for me is finding out what it actually is, where it shows up, how you can identify it – and then can take one step at a time to stopping doing it.

Introducing: Body Bliss Central’s you can stop fat talk series.

These articles are completely free, give you a good grounding in the whole fat-talk culture, and some insight in how you can get it out of your life!

And maybe, just maybe, make your little corner of the world a safer, more-accepting and dare I say healthier one, for the girls and women in your circle.

So, read on, and feel free to comment here or on any of the articles.

    Thanks for speaking out about fat talk, Sandra! I wonder if the expression ‘fat talk’ is something that might be used more in the US and not in Australia? Certainly more people need to speak out about what fat talk is as it can be subtle and a common way for (mostly) woman to bond without realizing the potential harm fat talk causes. I certainly am hearing a lot of fat talk this time of year!

      Suzanne, it might be a US phrase at the moment – but it’s a worldwide problem. I for one am about making fat talk itself a topic of conversation in 2012, and as you know, shining light on these unconscious things makes them lose their power 🙂 Bring it on I say 🙂

Tell us what you think - you know you want to ;)
