The average woman has been on 61 diets by the age of 45.  

The more I think about this the more I want to scream.  What is it that makes women so obsessed with thinness that we will waste so much of our life dieting even though the diets aren't even working?  

Thinness has become a god.  What used to represent the frailty of being a poor laborer now represents success and achievement.  To be thin is to be holy.  To be thin is to be good.  

And if thinness isn't enough, or you can't seem to attain it, you can always become devoted to clean eating.  After all, your body needs detoxified and purified with clean food, right?  (If only there were a sarcasm font)

What if we could channel all of the energy that women have put in to dieting and devote it to a more noble cause?  These kick-ass women just might change the world.  Instead, females will continue to make ourselves smaller while we worship at the Shrine of Thinness, only to be able to say on our deathbed, "I'm sure glad that I didn't get fat.  My life would have been awful."
