    Love this post!!! How about hug a meat replacement product?!

  11. vegirl says:

    WOW it’s amazing how different I look since I got my braces off the other day!

    We should hug our favorite chocolate (or chocolate alternative, for those crazies who don’t like it)!

  12. Marina says:

    So many beautiful blogers, amazing. And sooo many beautiful fats 😀
    Hm… maybe some fruit hugging?

  13. Jennifer - jcd says:

    Wow, what a great turnout! And everyone is so beautiful! Great hugging fat photos! Thank you, Katie for posting them all.

  14. Awesome! I love it!! Next time we hug something I’ll definitely remember to send a pic! :)

  15. Krystina says:

    Hug a (non-meat) protein month!

  16. Serena says:

    hug a chocolate? hug a green? hug a sweet? hug a fiber? hug a fruit?

  17. Faith says:

    Aww, what a cute post. I vote for hug-a-fruit!

  18. granintraining says:

    Oh My!!! So Many Lovely Faces and Fats!!! I really loved that you got so much response to this!

    My friend is getting her Phd in Dietary Medicine and she wrote to tell me how happy she was about this project, here is what she said:

    “On a separate note, I checked out your blog after seeing the link on Facebook and I much enjoyed you post on healthy fats. Fat is much maligned and misunderstood – if only more people embraced healthy fats and their many benefits!”

    She is a super pro and obviously so happy peeps are embracing the fats!!

    I think carbs should be the next choice since they fall into the same catergory as fats do in a sense, “maligned and misunderstood”!

    Way to go Katie!

  19. Wow! That’s a lot of fat huggin’ goin’ on!

  20. This is a ton of pics! No wonder it took so long to compile!

    Jennifer has the largest peanut butter containers I’ve ever seen!

  21. Jo says:

    This is one of the best blog posts I have ever seen. Thanks so much Katie 😀
    LOL @ Bobbie and the fat pinny gig. She’s about the size of my dog!

  22. Katie says:

    Hahaha…so much fun! Good job putting all of this together – I smiled the whole way through. :-)

  23. HOORAY! What a fabulous fat post! Katie you are so awesome for doing this. Love you!

  24. Stefanie says:

    Great fat hugging pictures everyone. :)

  25. HealthyHeather says:

    Thank you so much for giving over your blog, Katie, so that we folk who don’t have a famous (and fabulous) blog can still have a chance in the spotlight. You will never know how wonderful this post made me feel to see my little photo on such a big blog. Also, I loved seeing all the other fat tribute photos. Terrific!

    As for next month. Hmmm, it’ll be hard to top this! What about “Grab as much chocolate as you can, hug it, and then devour it” month? :)

  26. runningcupcake says:

    Yes Hug some protein (non meat I think too!)- always good to get ideas from other people.
    I love all the pics some very funny ones

  27. mapledreams says:

  29. Oh my goodness! This is fantastic!!!

    We should hug fruit next, because some people think it has too much sugar. Or potatoes…..

  30. I love this post and it is a great way to find blogs!

  31. *Andrea* says:

  34. Danielle says:
