I got one of those emails from Rudd asking me to pass along the info about their course. I just let it sit, tho I was half tempted to email back exactly what I thought of their programs. Decided it wasn't worth my time then.

While it is true that being heavy does put more stress on the body, and I'll give them that many of the weight based illnesses are legit, stress kills more people every year that obesity, infact stress often causes obesity.
So maybe if the medical community got behind stress reduction there would be fewer obese people for them to worry so much about.
* years of a bush economy people have to work themselves into the grave to make ends meet, and it has been proven that stress causes people to store more fat.

While I realize it's generally bad form to feed the trolls lest we encourage their efforts, I must say that John there is as charming as he is eloquent. Dear heart, if you find us "obese fucks," as you so delightfully phrased it, to be so offensive, why don't you find your own little corner of the internet to play in and leave us alone?

Elephants are extraordinarily, graceful and powerful creatures, they really are the kings and queens of the jungle.

Lara, thanks for bringing attention to the problems we face as our society continues to wage war on fat people. I find it difficult to understand how people who are saavy enough to find your blog aren't intelligent enough to pay attention to the other information that is out there, like recent articles in the NY Times. Here's one for example:

John is a prime example of the kind of attitude encouraged by mis-information like that being spread by Kaiser. How do we beat ignorance?


I just visited your website and have found it to be of a very high standard. I'm Erica, the marketing manager of, a dating site for BBW and BHM. We dedicate to provide better services for plus size people. Is it possible for us to be partners to achieve win-win cooperation?

Would you like to have your own BBW dating site? You can earn money if you have users registering at your site. We can set it up for you at no cost. Any interested in it?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Yours sincerely,

Marketing Manager

At we are not anti-diet BUT we do explain the high failure rate.

We are the new fat acceptance. NAAFA style FA put the whole movement on a very slippery slope. We don't cling to the tired and wrong arguments of fat by nature, fat and fit and the notion that we have low self esteem.

We are proud by nature and fat by choice. In fact studies show that we are mentally healthier than the general population and have higher self esteem.
