Description

With nearly 30% of UK adults classified as obese, it’s easy to assume that being overweight is a problem that can’t be solved. Living in a society rife with diet culture can lead many of us to believe that many people are simply lazy and make poor choices when it comes to food and exercise. But have you ever questioned the potential impact of comments and beliefs like this? As opposed to motivating someone to lose weight, research shows that obese people who have experienced weight discrimination are actually three times more likely to remain obese. And worryingly, weight stigma can have some devastating effects on mental health too. I’m here today with Registered Dietitian Sophie Medlin, to discuss the science behind fat shaming and what we can actually do to support those in need of help.
