A woman gets it into her head that she can never be too th

Zhang Xin, associate professor at the School of Psychological and Cognitive Science at Peking Uni

versity in Beijing, believes “fat talk” may be a way of expressing that “we all share feelings of insecu

rity”.In China, “fat” has become a word that women will do almost anything to avoid being associated with. This is not surpris

peers about weight concerns and body issues, and this ma

y release them from pressure over their weight and serve as a way to bond with their friends,” he said.

ion over body shape by gaining reassurance within a peer group, it can also serve to reinforce negative feelings.
