I thought her comment about women under size 14 was a little unfair. Doesn’t that contradict Healthy At Every Size? I realize that in our society thin is glorified and fat is vilified, but many of the women that are thin did not act in any conscious way to become thin and are just that way naturally. (In fact, I suspect almost all of them are that way, since so many people who diet to get thin eventually end up fatter than when they started.)
