I'm Collecting Fat Myths--Will You Help?
By Shaunta Grimes on April 18, 2011
I've been writing a series on my blog about fat myths, based on Dr. Pattie Thomas' list of ten myths in her book Taking Up Space.
As part of that series, I'd like to make a list of other fat myths so I can continue to write about them. Is there a myth about fat that you'd like to see me write about? Please let me know in a comment!
I've gotten some great responses on my Facebook page, including:
Fat people have a thin person inside them, waiting to come out
Fat people all have eating disorders
Fat people don't know how much they eat or exercise
Fat people don't know about nutrition
Fat people have poor hygiene
Fat people are stupid
Fat people need to be told they're fat
Fat people don't care about their health
All fat people are poor
I'd love your help adding to this list. Thank you!
