OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE:

Dismantle diet culture, one story at a time

Amplifying stories of the real people behind our cultural obsession with thin - the reality of weight stigma, and the diet culture that has made sacrificing our mental health in pursuit of skinny (and healthy lifestyles), not only normal, but expected.

How's it working?

There's no shortage of weight loss "inspiration" via before and after photos everywhere you look.

And tips, tricks and plans from people promising they can show you how to get that perfect bikini body or be forever healthy and happy if you just eat and live the "right" way.

Promising they know what's best for your body better than you do.

And we spend our entire lives trying to comply.

Is the population happy, healthy and skinny yet?

Hardly.

What happens after the "after" pics are posted?

What's the real story behind it all?

What impact is it all having on our population as a whole?

What's the real-life impact of this obsession with dieting, weight loss and "healthy eating"?

The Real Diet Story aims to answer those questions by amplifying the stories of real people and the toll it's taken on their lives.

 

We're here to counter the endless supply of "success" stories with the truth behind our cultural diet, weight & food obsessions.

What's Your Story?

Have you spent your life hating your body and trying everything to "fix" it with one weight loss attempt after another only to keep gaining or regaining every pound you lost and judging yourself more with every attempt?

Spend some time reading the stories of others just like you. You're not alone and it's not your fault.

And if you feel ready, join us. Join our mission.
