Caution: The war on obesity may cause issues with your hearing. If someone says “Health at Every Size suggests that you eat healthy and exercise” and you hear “Health at Every Size suggests that you eat twinkies and sit around on the couch” you should stop participating in the War immediately.
The war on obesity may also cause issues with your vision. To avoid looking like an idiot, until you know how the war on obesity affects you you should avoid going to videos and websites of athletic fat people and claiming that what they do is easy or that they are lazy.
You may lose the ability to do math. Call your local Health at Every Size Practitioner if you start to think that dieting’s 5% success rate and 95% failure rate seem like good odds.
In extreme cases the war on obesity can lead to a complete loss of your ability to treat people appropriately or make good choices. Discontinue the war immediately if you find yourself spending time looking for fat people on the internet to make fun of them, claiming that “Eat healthy and exercise” is an irresponsible message, or claiming that the research doesn’t matter because Dr. Oz is just so inspiring.
Contact your local Health at Every Size Professional if you have a fat hating episode lasting more than four hours.
