Psychology Today's Eating Mindfully

Abstract

Lose 1-2 pounds per day! Burn fat fast! Unwanted love handles? Cleanse them away! We are constantly bombarded with media telling us that we must rid ourselves of fat. We can burn it off, shake it off, starve it off—if only we have the proper willpower and motivation. In our culture, fat has become synonymous with lazy, unmotivated, and stupid. Fat has become something to be ashamed of.
