She or he is wearing a skimpy swimming costume, and information about the diet pill or shake or programme or whatever is being advertised is jammed into the bottom right corner, perhaps with a picture of some vaguely medicinal-looking packaging. This advertising is so ubiquitous that I have come to think of it as a yearly indication that summer is on its way, like how the first sign of the holidays approaching is usually the sight of Christmas crackers in the local supermarket. Whether or not each ad succeeds in its primary mission of getting people to buy the product it is promoting, there is one way in which these ads have proven extremely effective. But even if we leave all of that aside, the suggestion that only perfectly proportioned, bikini-wearing glamazons can go to the beach is blatantly untrue. I am not just saying this as an angry fat activist who believes in the forceful abolition of all standards of beauty, and has aspirations of frog-marching hordes of swimsuit-clad fat people to the beach and ordering them to display themselves everywhere.

What should be the focus? Eating well balanced meals that keep you fueled throughout the day, getting plenty of physical activity and exercise in your week, and making sure you get enough sleep each night. These are all important aspects of maintaining health that have nothing to do with a scale. When you think of what determines weight, most people think of diet and exercise. People sometimes assume that everyone has complete control of their weight, but this is often not the case. Society puts immense pressure on individuals to be lean and strong or skinny and toned. Media that includes these images and beliefs help perpetuate the stereotype that weight is one of the most important factors for health. However, people come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, which is perfectly normal! An Olympic marathoner is going to have a very different body type and weight than an Olympic shot putter, but both are healthy, elite athletes whose bodies and weights are just right for the respective demands that are put on their bodies each day.

Summer is almost here! That means longer days, whipping out your favorite sandals — and probably the pressure to drop pounds. Having a deadline suggests we need to change our figure in a short time period which can lead a lot of women to start fad diets and quick fixes. This time of year is when I see the highest use of detoxes, cleanses, and extreme restrictive meal plans in an effort to lose weight quickly. Not only is rapid weight loss physiologically damaging and typically ends in setting the weight higher than the bodies healthy set-point, it also is emotionally stressful. As restrictive behaviors with food increase, the mental obsession with food increase, as do guilt and shame. Slower weight loss helps the body adjust and accept changes for durable results. Repairing these physical systems after a short-term fad diet can take much longer than the month or two you were on a fad diet. Flaws and imperfections are completely normal and once we embody them, it allows us to create a life around the things we love — family, friends, fun, not just food! Yes, society needs to change their views on the beach body, but sometimes you have to change your thinking too, to stop taking unrealistic targets of idealized thinness seriously.
