Of all the weird contradictory things demanded of us by conventional beauty, I’ve always thought the “skinny body, baby face” thing to be particularly unfair. While there are certainly people who look that way naturally, it’s almost impossible for anyone not named Lily Cole or Cara Delevingne to “achieve” that look without getting surgery on one part or another.

Ladies! Sleeping with a light on could be making you fat! Worse still, sleeping in non-enveloping cocoon-like darkness could be… making you fat!
This is horrible news, because everything else already makes us fat. But apparently there is room for another thing. More
“You look so skinny,” my friends would eagerly say to me. It was the end of summer after I had spent nearly 3 months running 5 miles each morning and obsessively counting calories. I was still throwing up on occasion, but I was also attempting to lose weight “healthily” though there was obviously nothing healthy about my behavior.
After just 10 weeks, I had managed to go from 150 pounds to 120, reducing my size from a 10/12 to a 6 (or 4, depending on the store). At 5’7″, 120 is just on the “normal” side of the medical spectrum, but I did not look like my normal self. More
…Because I will literally throw up and resent you for my newfound hatred of ribs and chicken wings. More
There are plenty of ways to spice up your sex life. Porn is abundant and lacy underwear seems to have become the norm. You can even find an assortment of massage oils, blindfolds, and little blue pills in the back of your neighborhood drug store. But some of the easiest ways to turn up the heat in the bedroom is simply to avoid things at all cost. You know, things like animals, children, and other human beings! More
In an effort to combat the unsightly weight gain that all too many pregnant ladies fall victim to after “letting themselves go,” Kim Kardashian is working out like crazy to avoid the sad fate of Jessica Simpson, Fat Pregnant Person. At least, according to certain tabloid stories. Certain tabloid stories I believe. More
At 14-years-old, I went from a 118 lb. size 0 to a 140 lb. size 8/10 in just nine months. Nine months. Think of the last time you gained enough weight to constitute a size jump, and imagine that a few times over. My body could not accommodate this level of growth and — voila! Stretch marks abound.
(Somewhat NSFW, by the way: bra shots and underboob shots and thigh cream, so if you’ve got a stricter workplace, I’d save this one for a wee bit later.) More
It’s not. But it’s awesome. More
Look, people are welcome to be cynical about this (because it’s a publicity stunt, because it’s a publicity stunt for her father’s critically-reviled restaurant</a but… More
Another day, another celebrity being told she’s now too fat after being accused of having an eating disorder like, a year ago. More
A group of so-called experts think they have finally figured out the real reason behind our obesity problem: Women just don’t do enough housework anymore. Duh, why didn’t we think of that?
According to a new British survey of 8,000 people, 60 years ago the average women’s waistline measured 28 inches. Today, we come in at 34 inches. That’s a full six inches more than our earlier generation. And the reason for that? The demise of the stereotypical 1950s housewife, of course! More
New studies show that your co-workers have a mighty influence on weight gain… as well as weight loss. Jerks. More
