This morning, Radio National’s Life MattersÂ program focussed on cultural attitudes to fat. Â I was invited in as a guest along with the wonderful Dr Cat Pause, and eating disorders specialists ProfessorÂ Cynthia Bulik and ProfessorÂ Stephen Touyz.
While I don’t agree with everything that was said on the program (when will that fat-is-the-last-acceptable-prejudice meme die? And can we please get over shaming-fatties-for-their-own-good already?), I think the overall program was really positive. Â It was great to have some non-fatties talking about how diets don’t work.
You can listen hereÂ (though be warned, there’s some concern-trolling from the callers).
