Twenty-Something splitting time between the East Coast and West. Lover of faux fur jackets, macaroons, and bad reality TV. Willing to tragically overshare in the name of journalism.
Diet culture, especially when marketed towards children, is not solving a weight problem, but rather, its most likely creating one.
