Great reporting and research. Sadly, people don’t care to simply do as they espouse and “not give a damn about what people say or think.” People have a blind emotional attachment to ruining themselves and acting out against others. It sucks beyond words that this guy started someone, and now it’s become it’s own religion and while it’s not exempt from being taxed, it’s supported by the congregation and those who preach how to be thin at all costs, reap the rewards.
This is a GREAT piece, because this exposes the origin of “being thin” and how vile it has been and currently is. It is up to each person to stop trying to be what we are not naturally meant to be. We are to be the weight we need for where we live; NOT who we live with, or around.
