...Right. "Thin-spiring" sounds as if you're encouraging eating disorders, which I'm sure you are not.
SH - what are you even talking about? It doesn't sound like that whatsoever.
You got that right! Love this saying!!! Weight loss is 80% of what you eat and yes people you need to eat to lose weight and to be healthy!!
Cindy- A lot of anorexia sites have 'thinspiration' images to encourage followers to stick to their weight loss goals. This was the first thing that came to my mind too. Not saying it should be changed, just that there is an association possible.
SH was just pointing out that 'thinspiration' and 'thinspiring' are terms used often in the ED and pro-ED community but anyone with an iota of sense knows that isn't what you're going for here! I dig the thought - and it's true! Having a great body starts with the quality of what you're putting in it! I may print it out and put it on my fridge for the next time I really, really want to just be lazy and order takeaway.
I personally think some of the comments made are out of proportion to what the intent of the message conveys. I am obese and I get the thought behind the message. It's not to promote anything but to watch what you put in your mouth. The message is geared more toward people who need to lose more than 50 pounds as I see it. Not some whispy little twig that looks malnourished!!
I've never been anorexic so never connecting the message as something negative. Point is we are what we eat and all the exercise in the world won't give you great abs unless you eat right.
This book looks great. My family and I have been working toward a clean diet for two months now, lots of fresh fruits and veggies included. I think this book would be full of great new ideas. firstname.lastname@example.org
