Principia Press (PRINCETON, N.J.) has published a “fat-positive” book called Fat in America.
The book is the result of a collaboration between PRINCETOWN PROFESSOR and the Fat and Inclusive Society, a new organization in the US that aims to promote healthy eating in the United States.
“Fat is important to us because it is our way of saying, ‘you are not beautiful.
You are not smart’,” PRINCIPIA PROFESSIONAL CEO, Mark Hetrick, told ABC News.
“It is a way of being in the world.”
He said he wanted to show how “everybody is entitled to their own body”.
“It’s a very human thing, it’s a natural thing,” he said.
“We know that fat people are actually the most disadvantaged in the country.”
The book includes advice on what constitutes healthy weight, what healthy eating is, how to start and stop eating, and how to be healthy in general.
The idea is that fat acceptance is “not about you being fat.
It’s about you showing you care.”

“The way you feel about yourself is a reflection of the way others think about you,” he told ABC.
“If you’re overweight, your self-esteem and confidence will plummet.”
The more overweight you are, the less likely you are to be accepted by society.
“In a lot of ways, we’ve had to fight for a lot more acceptance in the past 50 years than we would have liked to,” Hetriks said.
Hetricks believes that being overweight in America is a “natural” state, something that happens in society as a result of the cultural beliefs that surround the weight-acceptance movement.
“For example, you know, people who are very thin, they’ll have conversations with their friends about how they’re fat and then it’s, ‘Oh, well, that’s how you look.
You’re not good enough, you’re too skinny.
That’s how we see you,'” he said, referencing the social stigma associated with thin people.
“But that’s not true.
That is a culture that promotes the idea that skinny people are evil.”
Hetros also believes that obesity and health are a cultural problem, and that weight-loss and exercise programs can help us change our perception of who we are and what we look like.PRINCITAL PRESS / PRINCITAL PRESENTATION / PRINCE STEWART (L) and HETRY (R) in Fat in AMERICA (Courtesy of Principias Press)”I think we all should be willing to be fat, but not everyone is fat,” he added.
“When people say ‘I’m a fat person’, that’s a lie.”
Hetrick told ABC that the book is a collaboration with PRINCeton PROFESSPerson Mark HET RICHARD.
“He’s the one who really put together the whole thing,” Hettricks said.
The book is part of PRINESPERSON MARK HATRICK’S FOREIGN WORK, a collection of essays about fat people in the UK and US, which Hetrik also co-authored.HETRRIK HETROLL, a member of PRINS, also works with PRINETOWN’s PRINCESSIONAL PROFENSES and has contributed to other Fat in Ameris work.
“I’m thrilled that Mark and his colleagues are able to support a healthy lifestyle that is sustainable,” he wrote in a blog post about the book.
“This book has been an inspiration to me, as I’ve struggled with weight and have had many difficult relationships.
It was a privilege to help him bring his ideas to life and inspire people with them.”HETRIK LEE/REUTERS
