A great way to help undermine capitalist anti-fat bullshit is to stop assigning moral values to food. There is no such thing as “healthy” food as a universal category–nutrition is way more personal than that.
– A nice big salad full of veggies and fiber is an almost surefire way for a person with Crohn’s disease to have an absolutely miserable flare-up
– A person with low blood pressure can treat that with high sodium foods in order to avoid expensive medication
– Candy bars/Skittles/other cheap candies are a cheap and immediate treatment for low blood sugar in someone with diabetes
You’re not being “bad” by having dessert.
You’re not being “good” by having a salad.
Different bodies have different needs–if what you’re eating makes you physically *feel* bad, then maybe that’s not healthy for *you.* Maybe you might want to make some changes to find something that makes you feel *better,* but food is not one-size-fits-all, and trying to adhere to someone else’s idea of what “healthy” eating looks like will probably just make you miserable.
Go forth and fuel your body, friends. Fuck the fat-hating diet industrial complex!
