Default Weight loss kills (article)

This article is from a few months ago, but it reveals some important facts- facts that the mass media will never acknowledge; facts that must become better known.

http://www.spiked-online.com/index....oxarticle/2997/

As the article explains (and as we all knew), the situation is grim:

Quote:
Our image of what constitutes our correct weight and body size, dictated by a media and public health community obsessed with ob*****, continues to drive both women and men to attempt something that is largely impossible. Worse, if there is a health effect of dieting, it may actually be detrimental rather than beneficial.

Research finds that 90 per cent of American high school girls are dieting, despite the fact that many are not overweight...

However, what is emphatically not reported in the mainstream press is that a growing number of studies have reached a shocking conclusion, a conclusion that flies in the face of media propaganda: Contrary to deit-industry brainwashing, the truth is that weight loss not only harms the body, but actually leads to increased risk of death:

Quote:
there is equally strong evidence from such studies that dieting is bad for you. A National Institutes of Health conference that reviewed the evidence about dieting concluded: ‘Most studies, and the strongest science, shows weight loss… is actually strongly associated with increased risks of death – by as much as several hundred per cent.’

Dieters have double the risk of getting type-2 diabetes compared to those who are overweight but do not diet. The connection between weight loss and increased risk for an early death is particularly striking in two large studies – the Iowa Women’s Health Study and the American Cancer Society study.

In the follow-up to the American Cancer Society study, researchers found that healthy ob*** women were in fact better off not losing weight. Healthy women who lost weight had increased mortality risks from cancer, cardiovascular disease, and all other diseases when compared to healthy women who did not diet.

Over the past 20 years, more than two dozen studies have found that weight losses of 20 to 30 pounds (between nine and 13 kilos) - the amount most dieters say they want to lose - lead to an increased risk of premature mortality.

These findings are truly frightening, for they show that present-day efforts by the diet industry to starve young women are not only ruining these girls' body image, and psychologically traumatizing them (we all knew that), but are even putting their lives in jeopardy. Acutely so.

The myth that weight loss for women is a matter of "health" is a complete lie, and diguises the real truth: that diet-starvation and exercise-torture are the real health risks, and that eating according to the body's natural appetites is the only way to true beauty and happiness.

These revelations are stunning--and all the more so because the mass media suppresses these facts completely, and promotes curve-o-phobic lies in their stead.

The fact that diet-starvation or any other form of weight loss is severely harmful to the body is so obvious, that one would think it would be self-evident. Much of the television-watching public saw a painfully wizened Tammy Faye Baker on Larry King recently, just days before her demise. That was the look of ill-health. That was the look of someone who is close to death (as indeed she was).

It is lack of nourishment that is fatal, not abundance of nourishment. It is plumpness that is the visible sign of health, not emaciation. It is self-deprivation that harms the body, just as it is indulgence that improves it.

And yet, the brainwashing power of the media is so complete, that they dupe the populace into believing that this is not the case. They have indoctrinated the public into believing an inversion of the truth as colossal as if they had persuaded them that water is dry, or that the sun is cold. And with truly sinister calculation, they suppress all images of plus-size beauty, for they know full well that the proliferation of such images would explode their myth, and allow the public to rediscover the truth.

Luscious Ford L.A.newcomer Erica Layne (size 16 at 5'9), radiant with well-fed health and vitality:

We know of no online presence apart from Ms. Layne's portfolio at the Ford L.A. site.

Here, however, are a couple of fine Polaroids highlighting Erica's appeal. This headshot reveals that she possesses a very attractive fullness in her facial features, which are somewhat reminiscent of Kate Dillon's from her glory days as a size 16, during Mode's faboulous first years in print.

And here is an effective profile pose, showing off her truly stunning figure. Ford L.A. deserves to be complimented for signing a size-16 model, and so long as Ms. Layne retains her voluptuous figure (or enhances it), rather than diminishing her beauty, she promises to be a talent to watch.

Erica's professional images to date have not yet captured her full potential, though, and we look forward to seeing this luscious model (38dd-35-42) shot by a truly inspired photographer.
