Given the renewed and sustained interest in obesity or rather, stopping and reversing obesity; these articles, comments and subsequent discussions are pretty interesting. Still parsing out the arguments and my own reflections. But anyone interested in this topic should definitely check out Katie LeBeco’s Revolting Bodies?: The Struggle to Define Fat Identity.
