"Back in the Day: Women and Body Image" by Nishat Kurwa
What I noticed most about "Back in the day : Women and Body Image by Nishat Kurwa "http://www.youthradio.org/oldsite/archives/kqed.shtml" was alright. It made a strong point about everyone. So I thought the podcast was great and I thought that it showed a very strong point about appearance now. Now a days everyone worry about if they are over wight or if they are not slim enough. But they just blinded by what the media their friends. They are not thinking about how they want to look like. A lot of people just think about oh I want to look like that person because they think that is what someone would look like.
When the podcaster said " overweight is just another word I prefer fat" I was like that is so true. That is because overweight or fat is just a word. To someone else that person dose is not that fat. It just depends on the person a lot of people just think about oh if that guy think I'm fat then that means I'm fat. That is not the case the thing is people that are not shallow will go out with the person because of there looks. So I think that a lot of people do the weight lost and diet plans because that is what they think is right. And that is how they think they will get the guy. So this all has to do with the word fat because that's what happens to the people when they use that word. They start to have insecure thoughts and they think they are not good enough, most of them have low self esteem. So that is why it is hard to do a lot of things with low self esteem.
Another part that I really like is how " Diet Industry is Lieing to Us. And that is true because a lot of the time. There products don't work and then you just end up with a lot more weight. Most of the time people will get food diet then they will be like ea this and then you can lose weight. OK now come on how are you going to lose weight by eating. That is what cause you to gain weight. Some times it really just stupid to listen to them. So I think that they mad a good point.
I don't like how the guy was talking about "No weight lose program for guys". Its not true because a lot of people just need to work out. Its harder for girls to do that because sometimes there body just give in because they not use to working out. So that is why its different for girls and that is why they have weight lose programs for them. If the guy just went to the gym he would have been fine. So I dislike that one because the guys didn't really look.
I thank the podcaster for putting this podcast on. That is because a lot of people just need to know that they don't need to lose weight. And hopefully this will bring people self esteem back up. Most of the teenagers now have low self esteem. That is bad and people support saying the nasty things and comment. With this podcast hopefully people will realize that this not being fat is not bad. But in my opinion I think that they should try to lose the weight because its unhealthy.
