Dismantling the Idea That You Must Be a Certain Size to Be Healthy

The idea that you must be a certain size to be healthy has been perpetuated for far too long.

This harmful belief has led to millions of people feeling ashamed of their bodies and condemning themselves to a life of dieting and body dysmorphia.

It's time to dismantle this false idea once and for all. Everyone deserves to feel proud of their body, no matter their size. And contrary to popular belief, health isn't determined by the number on the scale. So let's break down this harmful myth and set the record straight on what it really takes to be healthy.

It's time to dismantle this false idea once and for all.

Dismantling the idea that you must be a certain size to be healthy is an important step in creating a more positive and inclusive body culture. Health is not one-size-fits-all, and comes in many sizes and shapes, including being "overweight" or "underweight" by conventional standards. Our bodies are complex and so is our definition of health.

Health is not determined by size or shape, but by an individual's behavior and lifestyle choices. Eating nutritious meals, exercising regularly, and managing stress are essential components of health, and can be achieved without having to conform to any singular body type. By recognizing the diversity of bodies, we can foster an environment where everyone can feel proud and accepted.

At Herban Berry, we recognize that being healthy is about finding and maintaining a balance that works for you - eating a balanced diet and being physically active. You should focus on nourishing your body and providing it with the nutrients it needs to thrive, rather than obsessing over a certain body shape or size. And remember to show yourself kindness and compassion; you're worth it.
