Weighty Issues

This is a recurrent subject on models and weight, too thin too fat, curvy…but finally Elle France has put forth a curvy issue.

I don’t remember my parents ever talking about diets in their days and my mother as well as aunts had the tiniest waistlines when they were my age and I can’t fit into any of their vintage Madmen-esque dresses. Which is a huge shame! I was probably 10 years old when I had a 18 inch waistline.

I don’t know how much our diet has changed since my parents generation, but the vast choices have given rise to obesity and a string of new health problems. According the some research our food portions have increased by 69% in the last 1,000 years. Read it here on The Guardian. I’ve had my fair share of weight issues like most insecure teenagers… and although I still eat foods I love obsessively, I’ve learnt some self control.

Out of curiosity, I searched for food scenes by Bottecelli in hope to find some chubby foods on the table, unfortunately, no luck there.
