Happy International No Diet Day!


If you see pale blue ribbons around today, they could be honoring INDD or International No Diet Day, celebrated every May 6. Recovering anorexic Mary Evans Young founded the holiday in 1992 as a response to a thin-obsessed, thigh-hating culture. About $40 billion is spent each year on weight loss tactics, but today we are supposed to love our bodies, no matter what size or shape.
