Recently added to the F.E.A.S.T. site's exclusive articles: "Dangers of Dieting a Body Adapted to Famine" by Shan Guisinger, PhD,  Clinical Psychologist.

"Genetic studies have found that weight is as heritable as height, yet many people wake up everyday hating their weight and scorning those who are fatter. Although tallness and thinness are both valued, there isn’t widespread contempt of short people; height is seen as beyond the individual’s control. If a short person woke up every day hating her height we would question her sanity and values."
