“Everything You Know About Obesity Is Wrong” 

An article was published by Huffington Post on September 19th, 2018 sent shock wave in the world. The article titled “Everything You Know About Obesity Is Wrong” by Micheal Hobbes is controversial… is challenging all of our societal beliefs around obesity all of them.

From obesity is the #1 enemy of health to dieting throws it all in the air… and also explains why we suffer so much when stigmatized with weight issues.

Is it all true? Almost… Although I agree with most certain elements just encourage even more victimization and more suffering.

In today’s podcast, we are going to look at this article and dissect what is right and what is wrong… and most importantly, what to do with this information.

In this episode I discuss

  • The reason why how we’ve handled obesity is wrong
  • Why fat-shaming isn’t only not cool, but also doesn’t work in weight loss
  • The importance of addressing the issue why we gain weight
  • Why Weight and Health are not perfect synonyms
  •  Fatphobia can come from medical providers. Yes, statistics prove it!
  • The reasons why intervention or approach to change weight should be guided he HAES
