This would be a brave performance anywhere in the world. But here in China, it is a invitation to ridicule. In a country where most people are naturally slim , being overweigh, especilally if a woman, is frowned upon. but these dancers, they called themselves "the fat artists troop", are trying to change people's mind. "I used to think that life is very unfair. I even attemp suicide. But since I've started dancing, I feel that the society will finally accept me. And the fact is that China itself is changing shape. Once upon a time, it was a country of equally thin communists. Now socialist regality has given way to capitalist excess, weighing china down with the fruits of comsumerism. In the last 30 years, it has been a process of famin to feast in 2 generations. Availability, accessibility of food is widespread now. So people have more money, and they just eat more more and more of everything. There are already 100 million obese chinese and that number is predicted to double in just 5 years. This country's obesity epidemic has caused a spike in health problems like diabetes and heart disease. So now china is on a diet working off the telltale signs of economic success. In a country that used to worry about malnutrition, these are very strange things. At love the People's Diet Hospital, the doctors have turned to tradition chinese medicine. Accupunture, they say, can suppress appitite and speed up their patients' metabolisms. Xiao Yang, weighing at 23 stone, wants to end the discrimination she suffered her whole life. If two people go for the same job with the exactly same skills, they always pick the more beatiful one and don't even get the thoughts of finding a man. They may be new to the diet game but the chinese have learned the old saying," no pain, no gain."
