International No Diet Day

4 May, 2016 ,

In order to take steps against the propaganda of weight loss diets, International No Diet Day came into being. The idea came to a British woman, Mary Evans Young, also a long time anorexic, who was teaching management courses for women. This day, which happens every year on the 6th of May, is now celebrated in a many countries, including Canada, the United States, and France. Its symbol is a light blue ribbon.

According to the non-profit organisation ÉquiLibre, 73% of Quebec women want to lose weight and 35% of girls aged nine have already tried to lose weight. A study done in 2012 showed that women are two times as likely as men to have negative feelings, such as anxiety, deprivation, and guilt when they eat.
