She holds a master's degree in sexuality studies with a focus on the intersections of body size, race, and gender. She is a contributor for FORBES where she covers the plus-size market and how to end weight discrimination at work. She is the founder of Babecamp, a self-guided online course designed to help people break up with diet culture. She started the hashtag campaign #LoseHateNotWeight and in 2018 gave a TedX talk on the origins of the campaign. Tovar edited the anthology Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion (Seal Press, November 2012), and she is the author of You Have The Right To Remain Fat (Feminist Press August 2018), which was placed on the American Library Association's Amelia Bloomer List, and The Self-Love Revolution: Radical Body Positivity For Girls Of Color (New Harbinger Publications, 2020). Her podcast, REBEL EATERS CLUB, is Transmitter Media's first original production and is available on Apple, Spotify, and Stitcher. Season 2 of the show debuted in January 2021.
