Good morning everyone, hope you’re having a fantastic weekend so far! Unfortunately I’m not getting too bloggy this week as I am out of town (in Arkansas, to be exact!) to see a man about a car (more on that later!). So to tide you over I thought I would post a fantastic video about obesity my sister recommended from Youtube webseries, SciShow hosted by the ever-adorable Hank Green.
This video deals with obesity, what ups your risk factors and a the unsurprising realization that you can have a healthy diet and exercise regimen and still be obese. I love this video because Hank is a thin, rational person delivering the news and that is unfortunately the type of voice we need. So often friends, family and loved ones hear a body positive person state the same facts and get met with ridicule or eye rolls because the idea of a fat person stating they have done everything they can to be thin and it is not working is ridiculous.
