Lena Dunham Rewrote the Diet Tips This Magazine Said She Swears By, & The Results Are Just Wow

Haven’t we all learned by this point that actress Lena Dunham is so much more than her weight? The Girls star has been willing to discuss her health, including her struggle with endometriosis, but that’s not the same as obsessing over her size or image. Not to mention she has used her own recovery as a platform to advocate for women’s health care and people fighting chronic illnesses.

Apparently, Us Weekly didn't get the memo, despite the fact that Lena has spoken out against coverage of her recent weight loss time and time again. The magazine, which Dunham didn’t specifically name, featured Lena on their cover alongside the blaring headline "20 Slimdown Diet Tips Stars Are Using."

Naturally, Dunham was not here for it and took to Instagram to put the diet tips in her own words.

 

20 slimdown diet tips! 1. anxiety disorder * 2. resultant constant nausea 3. an election that reveals the true depths of American misogyny 4. constant sweaty dreams of dystopian future 5. abdominal adhesions pinning ovary below uterus * 6. baseless but still harrowing threats to physical safety online and through smail mail 7. watching institutions you love from Planned Parenthood to PBS be threatened by cartoon mustache-twirling villains 8. finally realizing superheroes aren't real (specifically the X-Factor, really thought they'd handle this) 9. marching your ass off 10. a quiet rage that replaces need for food with need for revenge 11. sleeping 19 hours a day 12. realizing that even the liberal media wants dem clicks no matter whut 13. worrying ceaselessly about the health and safety of women you know and women you don't 14. realizing who ya real friends are 15. having to switch from Uber to Lyft (lots of calories burned trying to understand a new app, then even more trying to understand if the conflict was resolved) 16. bladder spasms, urinary frequency and urgency * 17. having your phone number leaked and violent images texted to your phone by randos under names like VERYFATCHUCKYBOY@creepz.com 18. keeping your back arched against the wind 19. um, who the fuck cares? 20. I have no tips I give no tips I don't want to be on this cover cuz it's diametrically opposed to everything I've fought my whole career for and it's not a compliment to me because it's not an achievement thanx * Star indicates a pre-existing condition

My personal favorite is “a quiet rage that replaces need for food with need for revenge.” Here’s to Lena, who refuses to conform to diet culture and brings actual news to the forefront.
