Founder of Anti Diet Riot Club

Founder Becky Young has struggled with body image and disordered eating since her teens and grew up worrying about everything from “not looking like characters on Sabrina the Teenage Witch” to not being able to exercise because of a bone disease. Since discovering the online “BoPo” (body positivity) community, she has tried to promote the idea that you can be happy whatever your size or weight, and now hopes to spread this message “in a human-to-human way, rather than as keyboard warriors”.

“We’re surrounded by diet talk in our homes and workplaces,” she says. “This is a small antidote to that.”

The club hopes to create “a supportive space for people to explore (and critique if need be) all the topics surrounding body acceptance”
