Please Pass the Practicality

I want to stand up for myself and others like me, others who are defined as “overweight” and “obese” by the prevailing standards - and marginalized as a result. I want fat people from all walks of life not to feel inferior, or “not good enough” because of their weight. As a dietician, this blog will be about my thoughts and musings on this and related subjects. I hope you'll join me and share your thoughts, too.
