This October, college campuses will put a ban on “fat talk.” Though the ban is a temporary resolution, many hope that the impact of this campaign will bring lasting results. It encourages students to be more sensitive when they make comments such as  “Omigosh, you look so good — have you lost weight?”

The activity will commence on October 28 on at least 35 campuses across U.S. Thousand of young adults are expected to participate in the gathering called Fat Talk Free Week.
