A commenter on my blog called my attention to the fact that my article on Green Mountain at Fox Run was on MSNBC’s front page yesterday. The piece was for Prevention magazine, but online it is also branded Today Health and MSN. Oh, how confused I am by all the SYNERGY in our modern media world.
This story was originally supposed to be on the Health at Every Size movement. The piece that actually ran is more of an article about a specific (and terrific, in my opinion) retreat center‘s attempts to use some of the movement’s tenets. HAES as a concept is very threatening to women’s magazines and their advertisers; this story is an approachable way in. (She said, hopefully.) I’m choosing to think it’s a good addition to the national conversation about weight, if not about fat bias and the failure rates of diets.
