S2 E19 : What’s in a Word?

March 13, 2020

Heidi and Shar start off this episode talking about the word fat as a descriptor vs. an insult. Is it a word we can reclaim without negativity? They go on to talk about the “level of fat” acceptable by media standards or fat people being used as the weird characters on a show. Then they delve into social media and discuss the word “health” replacing “weight loss”. Are we still in diet culture if we are using words like health, clean eating, whole foods?
