- "There were babies everywhere, and not a bottle in sight! And for me, another sadly familiar scene: The rough count of nursing brown mommies I saw wasn't even one in 10.

* someone who cannot afford a trainer, a chef, days at the spa, or fresh organic foods 24/7.
* someone that works a regular day job and is pressed for time, energy, and resources.
* someone who is of color, an immigrant or a mix who has had to contend with cultural (non-American) issues like, "How not having the Asian skinny genes affected my body image" growing up in the U.S."
