What I'd say to my fat son-NYT

Good article by a guy who struggled with weight much of his life, purged, etc., and eventually found both normal weight and peace.

Middle aged people usually but not always focus on supposed health benefits of normal or slim bodies. Young people though are usually interested in social acceptance.
