Eating Disorders Epidemic

Alright, I’m calling out the media. I’m calling out every photographer, every talent agent, every director or producer, and every fashion designer. Not only that, I’m calling out every diet company out there.
Why?
I am going to tell you why.
I’m constantly seeing young children and teenagers on diets, trying to be rail thin and look like the supermodels on the runway or the actresses or actors on the screen. Not only is it the young kids that are having this issue, it’s also the adults. I’ve seen plenty of adults who are trying to obtain the “perfect body”.
Now I understand that there are plenty of people who are actually genetically skinny and can’t do much to change that. I understand that you have it rough as well, especially being asked if you ever eat or even if you are anorexic. I’m sorry that you are picked on constantly, but this is me against the media and the diet companies who are trying to define the perfect body.

I think when a woman, or guy, is trying to diet, they are being manipulated by the media into thinking that they have to look a certain way in order to get a job, acting gig, modeling gig, or becoming a singer. Honestly, that’s ridiculous.
I see no reason for it.
Plus, there’s a big difference between “dieting” and eating healthy. Dieting is basically getting rid of everything you eat and eating a carrot or saltine crackers, just to obtain the “perfect body”.
Eating healthier is getting rid of processed foods and eating more locally grown organic foods, which in my opinion is extremely better than starving yourself.

Be proud of your body shape. If you are pear shaped, apple shaped, ruler shape, or any other shape, you are beautiful just the way you are. I have an athletic apple shaped body, which means I have a very thick waist and narrow hips. I’m not overweight or anything, but if I want to be a model on the runway then they would make me lose a lot of weight. I am 5’5″ and weigh 140, and perfectly fine with my feminine athletic body. I don’t conform to the media’s ideas of perfection. And you shouldn’t either.

I’ve noticed that some countries around the world are trying to be like our society. Over in Greece, the voluptuous figure used to be praised. But now, the teenagers are trying to look like the supermodels and actors from the U.S.
I find this extremely sad and pathetic. I want to go back to the way things were. A time when everyone is considered beautiful and don’t conform to the media’s ideas.

You are all beautiful, so just be healthy and love your figure!
