What is the body positivity theory?

The body positivity movement is a social and cultural movement that advocates for acceptance and appreciation of all body types regardless of the person’s shape or size. Its goal is to challenge the cultural norm that a “smaller/thinner” body is considered superior or healthier than a person living in a larger body.

Overall, the body positive movement has made great strides, it does, like most things, face some criticism for its limitations and shortcomings with intersectionality, that it may promote an emphasis on body appearance yet, and that certain brands use it as a marketing technique.

Can you be body positive and still want to lose weight?

Weight is not a sole determinant of health or worth and people can pursue health and wellbeing at any size meaning you can still pursue weight loss and be body positivity. Being body positive means accepting and respecting  your body white also recognizing your autonomy to make choices that support your overall health and wellbeing.
