This Fitness Pro Gained 14 Pounds and She’s Never Felt Better

Type “Neghar Fonooni” into Google Images, and you'll see a variety of pics that look just like you’d expect from an incredibly fit and inspirational fitness professional. But if you dig a little deeper (as in, click your way to Fonooni’s popular Facebook page Eat, Lift, and Be Happy), you’ll come across a pair of photos that sparked a powerful conversation around body image on the Internet last week. http://greatist.com//connect/neghar-fonooni-reverse-progress-photo?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Greatist%20Daily&utm_campaign=Greatist%20Daily%202014%20-%20Manual&utm_content=A

    I learned to do the Turkish Getup by watching Neghar Fonooni’s instructional videos on youtube. She ain’t bad on the eyes either.

      I have to look up what a Turkish Getup is, but if it results in a healthier body, I’m all for it. Anyways, Bear, Ms. Fonooni’s story about body image is the reason I reflagged this. I think we all should consider taking care of our bodies, but we should be so compulsive that it’s mentally and physically harmful. Just MHO. Take care, and thanks for checking out my blog.
