There’s some truly nasty prejudice against overweight people today, and this is one of most ignorant and hateful examples I’ve ever seen:
Unfortunately some people still believe that shaming people with weight issues will somehow help them, by motivating them to change. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Shaming people into feeling bad will only reduce their willpower.
Imagine a day when you felt really depressed. Did you go out for a run and did you cook nutritious meals all day? Not likely. More likely you ate chocolate. Perhaps you even had a drink (or two) and smoked cigarettes. Then you probably ended up in front of the TV. That’s what happens when people get depressed.
Never ever tell someone with weight issues to eat less and run more. First of all it does not work. Second of all they’ve already heard it a million times. It can only hurt them.
If you want to help others then learn more effective ways to lose weight, and try to be an inspiration yourself. When people ask how you did it you can tell them. That might actually help.
