Jamie Barton has come out on Twitter as an occasional binge eater who is recovering from the effects of multiple diets:
I wanna tell you guys about my walk away from dieting….
Diets do more harm than good for the vast majority of people. Health is possible at every size. There are plenty of people out there who will argue this, and it’s not surprising. Diet culture is pervasive. It’s also a very lucrative industry, and there is little pushing back.
But I just want to be a little voice in a big crowd saying this out loud, because I think it’s important for anyone who has struggled with this. I am healthier in every single way for walking away from dieting.
Read Jamie’s fascinating thread here.
So, I wanna take a minute to be super real about something that is very personal to me, but something I think is really important. Like, maybe one of the most positive and healthiest steps I’ve ever taken for myself.
I wanna tell you guys about my walk away from dieting.
