My Ultimate Fat-Positive Anti-Diet Eating-Disorder-Recovery Self-Love Resource Master List

I am asked the same questions a lot so I thought it would be a good idea to have a list of resources where I can guide you to other wonderful blogs, websites, books, articles and other resources that answer those questions far better than I ever could. See below for a list of some of my favourite resources, and also for articles and blogposts that answer perfectly the questions I hear the most as an advocate for a fat positive, non-diet approach to life. Happy reading!

PS: Feel free to post your own favourite resources or anything you think I should add in the comments, just keep it fat positive and anti diet please.
