In this 60 minute lecture Virgie Tovar – author, expert and lecturer – offers a primer on the history and sociopolitical realities of our cultural obsession with weight loss. The story of modern day “Diet Culture” didn’t begin with juicing or cleanses, but rather over 200 years ago with the inventor of the graham cracker.
Tovar is the editor of Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion and one of the nation’s leading experts on fat discrimination and body image.
