How to Actually Stop Dieting

A rant about diet culture and size discrimination

  1. Sustained, significant weight loss is outright unachievable by the vast (like, 90%) majority of people who attempt it
  2. Yo-yo dieting and restrictive diets can potentially harm your body more than simply being “overweight”, and can actually cause you to gain even more weight afterward
  3. It’s just mentally taxing, unpleasant, and interferes with your social life to be thinking about food and exercise science and weight loss all the time and not everyone enjoys that as a hobby
  4. Everyone deserves dignity and respect no matter their size (and no matter their health for that matter!!! lol ableism!!)
