Self-described size diversity activist, Los Angeles-based Ragen Chastain is a writer, blogger and professional choreographer and is in training to be an ironman athlete. She's also had to face fat shamers – people who have a negative view of larger people.

She talks to Wallace Chapman.

Ragen documents her experiences in her blogs Dances With Fat and Iron Fat and her book Fat: The Owners Manual - Navigating a Thin-Obsessed World with Your Health, Happiness and Sense of Humor Intact.
