15 Mar Research Shows That The Pursuit Of Weight Loss Is Physically And Emotionally Harmful
“What we found is that you don’t need to lose weight to get healthier. We also have a lot of research that shows that the pursuit of weight loss just is harmful. What we see is that it starts people up with this preoccupation with food and weight (this preoccupation could get serious and turn into clinical eating disorders) that people feel like they’re failures, they blame themselves for not being able to get the weight loss that they want, it affects their self esteem, it results in discrimination and stigmatization, we also see that a lot of people end up weight cycling and that there’s a lot of health damage that happens from it, and it distracts people from doing what’s really important.” —Linda Bacon, The Gift of Food and Weight Preoccupation
