Let's Talk Body Image - Body Gossip Campaign

By Juliepen @Julie_Penfold

In today's post I wanted to highlight the fantastic campaign Body Gossip which hopes to raise awareness of the body image issues affecting today's society and promote the message of self-acceptance.

One of the celebrities getting behind the campaign is Big Brother starlet and model Nikki Grahame whose lifelong battle with anorexia was the subject of her excellent book Dying To Be Thin, which Nikki wrote to help raise awareness of anorexia and to give hope to sufferers of the illness that leading a happy and healthy life is possible.

The campaign provides a platform for the public and celebrities to unite and speak out about the body issues affecting us, and hopes to discourage finger-pointing, as eating disorders can happen to anybody at anytime. The site contains some thought-provoking videos, expert advice, your views on body image and real-life stories including 31-year-old Amy's story.

Delve in and join the debate...
