Your say: Would this help or hinder your weight loss?

When we embark on a journey of weight loss it’s more often than not something of self improvement. We do it while we’re in a positive mindset and we do it to it with happiness as we look towards a goal.

But one expert believes that instead of focussing on the positive and happy environment that stimulates us to self improve, we should be “fat-shamed” as we try to lose weight. According to the Daily Mail, Steve Miller believes that fat shaming isn’t bullying someone and it is instead incentivising weight loss.

Fat shaming is something we teach our children not to do. Our grandkids could easily turn around and tell us that talking about other peoples’ weight isn’t nice and it is actually bullying. So why would it be appropriate now?

The Daily Mail reports that Steve uses what he calls “Constructive fat shaming” as part of his approach. He claims people have to accept that they are in fact, fat, to be able to improve themselves.

I don’t know how I feel about this system so what do you think?
