As a personal trainer, I’ve seen the human proof: you can be fat and fitLouise Green

Fear-mongering studies are a typical product of a society that accepts weight discrimination as the last form of openly acceptable oppression. 

On Wednesday a major UK study came out with headlines proclaiming that you cannot be fat and fit. For me, someone who promotes ditching the diet, it was sad to see that associated coverage lacked any solutions for people to improve their health and seemed, more than anything, to dish out more fear-mongering to fat people, who already feel sidelined by society.

My comment: This argument drives me crazy! There’s so much research showing that thinness is not an indicator of healthiness, but it’s always treated as an exception, an excuse for eating too much etc etc
