Lauren Conrad Is Banning Fat-Shaming Words From Her Site

Here's the skinny on Lauren Conrad's website.

The former Hillsstar has decided not to use "skinny" or any other words that she deems fat-shaming.

"When we've talked about getting in shape in the past, words like 'skinny,' 'slim,' and 'thin' have often come up. Starting this month, we'll be banning any body shaming terms from the site, and replacing them with words like 'fit,' 'toned,' and 'healthy,'" she wrote on her website today. "The word skinny will now be reserved for skinny jeans. My editorial team and I had a long talk about it, and we want to make sure that the focus is on being fit as opposed to a number on the scale."
