It’s May 6th, which means the NEDA Network‘s first national No Diet Day is finally here! NEDA is excited to collaborate with our Network members on this important initiative to encourage the rejection of diet culture, and to promote the elimination of shame associated with society’s standards of beauty and respect for all body shapes and sizes.
Today’s No Diet Day excitement culminates with a social media campaign. To learn about how you can be involved (and to find No Diet Day shareable graphics), click here.
At 2:00 EST this afternoon, log onto Twitter and participate in our #NoDietDay Twitter Chat.
In recognition of No Diet Day, we wanted to share the three great blog posts leading up to today from the NEDA blog last week, along with a few others that seem meaningful. Feel free to share any or all of them, and don’t forget to share the No Diet Day graphics (found at the link above), and tag #NoDietDay and #NEDANetwork in your posts!
