And if you like this video, give me a thumbs up. So do you know what dieting does? Do you know what it does? Is it makes us not rise up and do things that actually matter in our lives. There's an amazing quote from Naomi Wolf I want to share with you, she is the author of The Beauty Myth. The quotes, “A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty, but an obsession about female obedience. Dieting is the most potent political sedative in women's history. A quietly mad population is a tractable one.” That quote blows my mind, I love it so much because it sums up exactly what's happening when we're dieting. Dieting keeps people who are oppressed, women, down. It keeps us being obsessed with something which is not beneficial to us so that the status quo is kept where it is, so that white old men can rule the world.
And so imagine what is happening when you're dieting, you're literally starving your body, and what is your brain doing when it's starving, it's doing everything it can to get you to eat, so it's making food look more delicious, smell more delicious, taste more delicious. Your brain is focused on higher calorie food, your brain is telling your body, “Do not move, we do not want to exercise, you're more sleepy, you're more grumpy.” Do you think that you're going to be doing anything that means that you're going to be rising up, and taking your space in the world, when you are literally starving? No, no. And that goes for even ... You don't have to be rising up and kicking out the old white men, but it can go to just basic things like you're too busy to spend time with your family and friends, and when you do, all you're thinking about is eating the littlest amount as possible, or always exercising. You're not going to be great company, I know I wasn't when I was dieting.
I was so boring, all I'd talk about is like, “Oh my god, do you know how many calories is in that food?” And my friends would be like, “Mm. Ha-ha-ha.” Lucky I still have them by the end. So you're not achieving the things in life that you actually want to achieve, you're not going for that promotion, you're not going for a date, you're not striving to be better in other ways because you're too exhausted. Dieting is so exhausting. So just forget about dieting, let's all rise up and get rid of the old white men who want to keep us oppressed, and let's eat hamburgers, and not worry about it, and have fun, and watch Netflix, and go traveling, and be the boss, and all that stuff because dieting is bullshit.
