Diet is society’s word to which women fulfill the majority of their lives. I for one have never dieted but my sister who is 5’3 and just shy of 9 stone has been on a diet almost non stop since 2011. She is a manager of a restaurant and has a hectic schedule but it is dominated by the likes of push ups, sit ups, low fat foods and drinking plenty of water. I personally am underweight for my age and height and have been for some time, but even if I wasn’t, I would never feel guilty if I didn’t restrict my intake in some way. I am not ultimately carefree when it comes to my body, to be fair, no one is ever likely to be, but the pressure on women to diet, be stick thin and risk serious complications through lack of nutrients etc is something that has to stop.
