You aren’t serious about this “diets don’t work” thing, are you?

Completely serious. Diets don’t work. By diet, I mean anything you are doing to fuck with your eating habits in order to lose weight. Even if you’re fucking with your food to lose weight “for your health”, that’s still a diet. If you’re calling your attempt to lose weight a “lifestyle change” or “eating better and exercising”, it’s still a diet. Whenever attempted weight-loss is studied, the results are a resounding failure. The researchers say things like, “It is only the rate of weight regain, not the fact of weight regain, that appears open to debate.”

Ah the obesity epidemic. The media can’t get enough of talking about it, now we have HBO partnering with all kinds of (heavily lobbied) government organizations who are producing the documentary “The Weight of a Nation” to focus more attention on it – to really whip us into a warring frenzy. I’ll talk more about the documentary in the upcoming days, but today I have some questions.
Call for research participants

My name is Ava Kanyeredzi and I am a doctoral candidate at the Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit, London Metropolitan University under the supervision of Professor Liz Kelly. My PhD research examines how African and Caribbean heritage women seek help for violence and how violence affects their relationship to their bodies.

At this stage of my project, I am recruiting and carrying out life history interviews with black women who have used violence support services such as helplines or refuges. If this is something that interests you and you would like to share your experience, I would really appreciate your participation.

Please contact Ava at avk0021[at]my.londonmet.ac.uk or visit www.theknowing.info for further details. Your participation is entirely voluntary and confidential. This study has been approved by the London Metropolitan University Research Ethics Committee.
