The Not-So-Hunger Games

Current film sensation Jennifer Lawrence recently told Life & Style magazine that she, for one, is not going hungry.

Lawrence says:  “‘I remember when I was 13 and it was cool to pretend to have an eating disorder because there were rumors that Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie were anorexic.'”

Now, considered somewhat plump for Hollywood, Lawrence feels differently:  “‘I’m just so sick of these young girls with diets.  I think it’s really important for girls to have people to look up to and feel good about themselves.'”

And, in another declaration that may serve to benefit the general public, the Equinox chain of fitness facilities recently unveiled a new personal training campaign (see below).  While the focus is still on skinny/fat, it’s good to know that a major company is moving toward recognizing that weight is not a proxy for health.  Now if they could just focus on fitness, rather than fat. . .
