DIVA, europe's biggest-selling lesbian magazine, is dedicating their october edition to fat chicks. "the fat issue: big girl glamour" features an article on the "health at every size" movement.
health at every size encourages:
- accepting and respecting the natural diversity of body sizes and shapes.
- eating in a flexible manner that values pleasure and honors internal cues of hunger, satiety, and appetite.
- finding the joy in moving one’s body and becoming more physically vital.
health is actually defined as "a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity".
