Can you be fat and healthy? In the Size Acceptance movement, the feeling is weight and health are two separate issues. Members of the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance (NAAFA) say they don’t allow “diet talk” at their meetings. Their focus is to encourage people to love the body they have. no matter what size it is.
In this story, Julianne Wokasik, V.P of NAAFA, and fitness instructor Jenanette DePatie (aka “The Fat Chick” ) share their views on health, acceptance, and they also speak out against what they call “fat hatred.”
