In this conversation with Serena Nangia we get vulnerable. I think part of the reason for that was this book, 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl by Mona Awad, was personal and triggering. Having said that, we both had really different perspectives because Serena never dieted and grew up in a household with someone who struggled with an eating disorder whereas, I had an eating disorder and spent a few years in a straight sized body. Get ready for a powerful conversation where we cover:

  • Serena's body image journey
  • Learning to take care of herself while lifting up the voices of others
  • Finding support as a fat person
  • Dating and having sex as a fat person
  • The thin gaze on the fat body
  • Trying on clothes in a fat body
  • The problem with before and after photos
  • The fetishization of fatness
  • The experience of watching her sister go through an eating disorder
  • Exercise when it is a disordered behaviour
  • The unsatisfying ending of the book

Keep reading everyone!
