I wasn’t sure if I should post this with names or without. It regards a Swedish blogger whom I absolutely can’t stand, and think is offensive, rude and… sick, actually, and I don’t really want to generate traffic to her blog. On the other hand, I do want to write this, and writing it without names seems cowardly.
There is a Swedish blogger/PR-person called Katrin Zytomierska who’s famous for being provocative. She regularly makes fairly outrageous statements about everything from au-pairs to cleaners to childrearing, but she’s made it her mission in life to hate on fat people.
As in writing a lot about how fat people personally disgust her. How she’d never hire a fat person. How it’s a scandal for a gym chain ad to feature a woman who’s not super skinny. She’s a big fan of the LCHF diet, and has written several books on the subject.
Now, I’m not generally against people writing cookbooks or lifestyle books or things like that. What I do take offense at is when someone writes an entire book dedicated to fat-shaming and basically pointing out that the only reason to eat LCHF or exercise or generally live is to become skinny.
I swear, this woman needs therapy for her eating disorder.
Katrin Zytomierska recently acquired a disciple. A fat woman joined her diet-program and blogs about her weight-loss, and Katrin Zytomierska also uses this as a promotional tool for the diet-program. I can say nothing about this woman or her motivations, but when she posts this on her blog, I can’t think of any of them as healthy influences:
It freaks me out.
[For those of you who speak Swedish, this is a link to Katrin Zytomierska’s old blog, where the quote from the title comes from. I don’t recommend it unless you have a drink or two first. I won’t link to the blog I got the picture from, as I considering it triggering for a lot of people. Live with it. ]
