      The author’s experience of being body shamed is very similar to mine both when I’m around my extended family, and when I visit Asia. It’s such a complex and painful situation

      Maybe it’s a cruel irony that loving food is what has made my body unacceptable to so many, yet loving food is also the thing that has kept me alive.
