AS FEATURED AT
Anti Diet Riot Club CIC is a non-profit based in the UK helping dismantle body shame, fat phobia and diet culture. We support people via The Anti Diet Riot Community space, with educational workshops, inspirational talks and community meet-ups.
We empower people to find freedom from disordered eating, toxic wellness/fitness culture and the pervasive anti-fatness in society that marginalises folks based on their body appearance.
We raise awareness of the harmful effects of diet culture – especially on marginalised communities, the importance of positive body image and we advocate against weight-based discrimination.
We want to empower people to accept, respect, nourish or care for their bodies in the way that feels good to them individually.
Diet culture tells us that wellbeing beauty and happiness looks a certain way, that only certain people are deserving of it but that it must be strived for at all costs. Diet culture tells us we’re not worthy if we’re not in pursuit of the perfect body. It places bodies in hierarchy of value, beauty and acceptability. It tell us fat bodies are bad and not deserving of respect, fair treatment and access to healthcare. We say enough is enough.
Fat. Small. Disabled. Black. Unwell. Tall. Scarred. Queer. Sexual. Non-sexual. Anti Diet Riot Club advocates for body justice for all bodies and rallies against the shame we are all made to feel surrounding them.
We’re creating a community united around our shared experiences of weight obsession, diet-cycling, and losing trust in our bodies. Through hosting events and meet-ups we bring the ‘body positive’ movement into ‘in real life’ (IRL) spaces. We give a platform to campaigners and experts to share old, new and radical ideas around body freedoms and oppressions. Through gathering together in person and via online events, we’re able to support each other out of this cycle and into the kinder world of body acceptance.
