They may be the envy of women the world over, and desired by multitudes of men. But many top models, actresses and beauty queens secretly loathe their bodies, as much as average women.
Author and body acceptance coach Dr. Felicia Clark witnessed this first-hand, after spending several years as a successful full-figured model. As the advertising industry and the media have long created impossible standards for women to uphold, and shame those who aren’t a size 2, the pressure to be thin and beautiful is almost unbearable.
In fact, body shaming is big business, and has made the diet and exercise industries rich, while putting women’s health and happiness at risk. But Clark is helping women to fight back, with a program designed to teach them to love and accept themselves, just the way they are.
