Diet Anti-ads Kick Ass

January 22, 2013

Trigger warning: Original diet ad and its satirical counterpart.

One of my favorite bloggers in the Fat Acceptance world is Rachele from The Nearsighted Owl. She’s just launched a new project that I wanted to share with you all because it’s fantastic. She’s an artist as well as a blogger, and she’s taking diet ads and changing them — turning them on their heads. She just released the first.

It started like this:


 And she made it so much better:

happybeingfatGo visit Rachele, read about her project, and tell her how amazing it is. Because it really is amazing. Sometimes an ad like the Weight Watchers one above slithers in and strikes, like a snake. It bites and holds on. You start thinking, “Maybe this time counting points will work. Maybe they’re right. Maybe —” Well, we all know what a slippery slope that is. Rachele’s anti-ads are like an antidote. Fun, fierce, and right.

    I love her style.

    P.s. I see someone also named Kala commenting at nearsighted owl. That person is not me.
