With people still in the thick of New Year’s resolutions, health is on many minds. Some are hitting the gym; others are on a new diet. And according to local counselor Jennifer Hughes, these good intentions can turn all too easily into body shaming.
The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD) defines body shaming as “expressing humiliation about another individual’s body shape or size.” Although we can body shame ourselves, it’s most commonly done to another person.
