Manage episode 350810100 series 2475118
Food shaming is when someone criticizes or judges what another person is eating. Food shaming can be intentional but even with unintentional, can lead to guilt, shame and embarrassment. Constant examination of what you are eating or what someone else is eating are all part of the diet mentality and diet culture. Diet culture endorses the importance of staying thin which then leads to the compulsion to feel you have to watch every calorie that goes into your mouth and eat foods that fit into diet culture where it’s all about the calories
