There’s a song that begins with the line, “It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day” that keeps running through my head.
I don’t know about you but ever since I stopped dieting it’s like the world is conspiring in my favor. It seems like I’m far from alone in getting to this point of a very long and arduous restriction journey.
Hence, serious diet backlash appears to be popping up everywhere on social media.
Case in point: Last year I participated in a speaking summit organized by Stephanie Hutchenson. The title was Living La Vida Vegan. When I received a solicitation from her this year to be a part of her summit for a second time, I was like, “Whoa, my mind has really changed about using a plant based diet as a way of achieving the thin ideal. I’m thinking really differently now about body respect, body acceptance, the idea of telling other people what to eat and how to do food.
