  • Since I was a teenager, I've witnessed my fair share of body and food shaming, namely from friends and classmates. As we perused1 the dessert menu after dinner, I recall one friend saying she couldn't order her favorite dessert because "I'm wearing a crop top out tonight and want to look good."


    I've listened to friends compare their own bodies to those of women in completely different circumstances. Every time, I've choose to smile politely and nod my head at these self-deprecating comments. But as the years have gone by and talk about disordered eating, body positivity, and body image have only become more common, I've increasingly wondered why we let our friends say these things about themselves and let it slide as normal behavior.


    It really hit me during a recent brunch2 meet up with a few close friends. The conversation started with banter3 about our jobs, our love lives, and weekend plans, but soon, the weight loss talk crept into the conversation and overtook everything. I listened to people who I saw as beautiful already, both inside and out, consumed with thoughts of what they were eating and how they were working out to combat the extra calories or fat or carbohydrates4 in those foods.


    I sat there in silence because I wanted to scream Stop it! but it felt rude and wrong to dis something they felt so passionate5 about.


    And I've been there too. During my month trying Whole30, I found myself obsessing6 over every morsel7 I ate and how it affected8 my body. I would catch myself mid-sentence, talking about how great my new eating style was, and then suddenly think This isn't the real Julia. She wouldn't spend so much time talking about her diet in such an unsolicited way.


    Still, obsessing over the diet and telling everyone about my final goal is what got me through the grueling 30 days. Because of my Whole30 experience, I understand the allure9 of talking about your diet and exercise regime constantly. It can provide accountability, yes, but at what cost? All that talk about weight loss goals seem exhausting, and frankly10, not worth it.
