The Problem With the Pizza Tee

You know the ones I'm talking about right? Pizza is Life, Pizza is Bae, or There's No We In Pizza, put on a trendy top. So cute/funny/amazing right?! Sure, unless you're fat.

All the size 2's parading around proudly singing their junk food obsession are welcomed by society as adorable and funny. Put that same top on someone overweight, and suddenly it's awkward, and they should probably get some help.

Because you see, eating whatever you want is totally on trend, as long as your body doesn't show it.

I see it all the time, especially on social media. Skinny, beautiful people advertising their soda addictions, and passion for everything from burgers, to pizza, to sweets while everyone laughs along and tells them to carry on. Meanwhile, when an overweight person does the exact same thing they get labeled as unhealthy, lazy, and lacking self-control. The SAME behavior!

The truth is eating pizza is just as unhealthy for the skinny person as it is for the fat one. If you are truly, sincerely concerned about health issues only, then slap the pizza out of both their hands. They could both use a veggie in its place. But it isn't really about that, is it?

As long as we keep promoting the fallacy that you can eat whatever you want as long as you stay skinny, the more we push people into eating disorders, food obsession, over-exercising, and self- loathing. We've got to take the focus off skinny, and put it on healthy.


  1. WOW, JULIE. THANK YOU. This is so true, and something I think about/get embarrassed about all of the time.

  2. This is the only diet a skinny or a wanna be skinny girl would ever need:

    It helps burn the fat, it keeps you in very good shape ("horse riding" has that benefit) and it's very nutrituous if you drink what it offers. No artificial flavors, no sugar, pure protein, vitamins and aminoacids. Plus, it's fun to get the fluid out ;)

    Drop me a line if you like, contact details on picture.

  3. You make me want to want to be me...did that make any sense at all? I found you on periscope and have been reading your blog and Instagrams. I need what you say. More then you know. as I was looking at some of your Instagram's that inner voice said "I want to be her" and then almost as quickly as that thought came, I thought "wait no i don't, I want to WANT to be me" and a light bulb went on and now I have a lot of work to do. Thank you
