With social media it's easy to compare yourself to others, but it's time we stop body shaming, and learn to appreciate ourselves.
Pinterest, is known for having a strong stance against body shaming is now taking it one step further and banning all weight loss advertisements.
Including advertisements that "discuss weight loss, reference BMI or show before-and-after imagery or imagery that idealizes certain body types and features."
Aya Kanai, the head of content says, "As our base continues to grow, we are always evaluating how we can continue to maintain the platform's positivity and inclusivity- advertisements that promote weight loss o r idealize certain body types can be harmful triggers, so this new ban helps us to ensure that Pinners of all body types feel at home when they're on Pinterest."
This will only apply for paid advertisements and users can still search for healthy eating and exercise tips.
