Is Sally Fallon overweight or average weight?

In your opinion. Obviously everyone has a different interpretation as to what average/overweight looks like, but let's try to keep the semantics to a minimum. I know we shouldn't talk about a women's weight, but screw social constructs, I want answers and opinions. Why does it even matter? Well, for people who want to maintain a certain weight and want to be lean like a gazelle, it does matter.

I've been reading a lot about WAPF and MANY people seem to think Sally Fallon is overweight. One vocal critic, in regards to Dame Fallon's waistline, is That-Australian-Raw-Vegan-With-The-Banana-Glutton-Girlfriend-Who-Got-Breast-Implants-I'm-Not-Judging-Her-For-Getting-Implants-I'm-Just-Saying-That-She's-Being-Disingenuous-In-Regards-To-Her-Body, but he has that AIDS/methamphetamine look going on, so I think he was just being facetious. I think I have a pretty strict standard for what I consider "average" weight and I definitely would not consider Fallon to be overweight. I think she's just a healthy-looking, average weight older woman.

I really hope Mrs. Fallon never sees this. On the off chance that you do, I'm sorry for even asking this question and I love all of the recipes in Nourishing Traditions! Please forgive me, I will share my butter with you.

You tend to troll the boards, so it wasn't outside of the realm of possibility that you were maligning Sally Fallon, while supporting the banana dude. My apologies for misinterpreting your intentions.

One can be of average weight and also overweight at the same time. I think the average American is overweight, actually. Also, even if she is overweight, she's not selling a fat loss book. She's selling a book on ancesteral cooking techniques and recipes, so her weight isn't really relevant.

Lustig being fat overweight is a different story as well.

Rob Wolf being on the soft side is a different story though.

^What a stupid comment. I didn't mention "His" name because I don't want to give him anymore publicity and increase the amount of cash flowing his way, which you just did.

So you mention Sally Fallon by name, but not the 30BAD ass hat?

It seems to me she's a few pounds heavier than what most of us would prefer for aesthetic reasons. But WAPF is not an automatic weight loss solution, and nor is paleo -- just read through the boards here, there are lots of people who don't lose, or who even gain weight.

And all the evidence points towards the fact that it is healthier (in terms of longevity, and for older women especially) to not be lean as a gazelle, just as it is healthier not be obese, but to be somewhere in the middle.

Yes, she is fat. This is not an opinion, it's a fact. Search Google Images for yourself.

Of course, that doesn't make her a bad person. But, she is grossly overweight.
