Inside Every Slim Person Is There a Fat Person Waiting to Come Out?

How much control do they have over you? Who is it that is in control at 3am in the morning when you are at the fridge or food cupboards, stuffing back inappropriate foods that you would normally avoid like the plague. Or perhaps you have been out with your friends and remained under control by eating only a meager portion of salad and then on your arrival home… Wham! Something just seems to take over, you lose all reason and you find yourself tucking into last nights left-over steak pie, which you had denied yourself and watched all the rest of the family tuck into while you ate your diet ready meal. You may even consider yourself to be someone who is “Doing it Sensibly” and eating a recommended diet from the slimming club and who feels that there is no excuse to be hungry. Yet, every now and then something just snaps and off you go again, you’re out of control and something else has taken over. People attending slimming clubs will often weigh-in and find that they have had a good week; then go home and binge. “Why did I do that?” they wonder. Bingeing can be explained in so many ways, but I sometimes wonder whether it is as simple as the idea that there is a part of us who is just fighting to stay fat! This could be for many reasons, such as habits, or limiting beliefs. But nevertheless this inner something is there and every now and again takes control. Even if you are managing your weight successfully and your friends all wonder why you think you have a weight problem and are impressed with the way that you have it under control… still, there is this something that just takes over. In the days of the feminist movement as long ago as 1978, Susie Orbach wrote a book called “Fat is a Feminist Issue”. She is still writing and speaking on this theme 35 years later, and is proving to be even more correct in her ideas. Her original theory was that compulsive eating and bingeing was a woman’s way of fighting back against the idea that “food is a woman’s issue, because of the fact that she was the centre pin of providing nourishment for her family and needs to protect herself from the sexual advances of men”. Things have changed a little nowadays, but basically women are going along more with society’s pressure to be thin, although these days men are increasingly finding pressure to match up to excessive expectations to be slim and fit. So they too are probably experiencing the fat man inside screaming to be let out. Perhaps the issue here is around how much we allow this fat person inside to influence us? Is this just a matter of listening to our gut instinct? When we are putting ourselves under pressure to be thin with restrictive eating and starving, perhaps we do need to heed this inner voice or instinct a little more. Not allowing it to take over, but at least taking heed of it. Or is it just a matter of learning to recognize that we are only human? There is the school of thought that says that staying fat means people can stay in their comfort zone. They are comfortable with the weight they are, simply because it is easier that way. But I am wondering about this from a different perspective. Take the person who struggles every day of their life with food issues and avoids foods that they know will make them put on weight. Every meal is planned meticulously. Alcohol is limited. Meals out are usually something with salad. They may eat like a bird, starve, diet, and work out at the gym, in fact everything they do is around keeping their weight down. This person does indeed keep the weight off and they may even have people making stupid remarks like “You don’t have a weight problem!” – and the person doing all the hard work thinks “if only you knew!” Yet deep down inside there is this fat person screaming to be released! “Let me out, Let me out!” This is manifested by the

10 Myths That Obese People Believe, and How to Overcome Them

Compare Price of Bariatric Surgery In Europe gastric sleeve surgery in France 10 Myths That Obese People Believe, and How to Overcome Them Being a doctor and working with people for over 20 years, trying to help them get healthy has given me a different perspective on obesity. I think I have heard every excuse in the book. Because of this, I no longer tell people what they want to hear, but rather I tell them the truth. The truth begins by finding out the reason for overeating. Your own personal reason may be different than that of anyone else. In dealing with obesity it is important to understand why you are overweight. If you don’t deal with this issue, you will not be successful in your efforts to lose weight. In one case, a woman came in to see me saying she wanted to get off of her diabetes medications because they took away all of her energy. I explained that since she weighed over 250 pounds the fat would prevent her from achieving her goal and we would have to deal with that. She came in faithfully every two weeks for over a year, but didn’t lose a single pound. She said she was doing everything I suggested, but it just wasn’t working. Finally, in frustration I dropped my head into my hands and questioned, more to myself, “Why aren’t you losing weight?” She timidly answered, “Because I don’t want to.” I looked up, amazed, “Why not?” She went on to explain that she had seen a man on TV who had lost a hundred pounds and they showed his skin hanging down from his arms, legs, and abdomen. “I don’t want to look like that!” she blurted out in tears. Another woman who wasn’t losing weight on a supposed 500 calorie per day diet offered that she kept the fat on to keep people away. “I don’t want to get close to people and risk getting hurt, and the fat is a very effective way to keep my distance.” This included her family and friends. She was sabotaging her own efforts on multiple diets over years because of her emotional fears. Over the years I have collected some of the most common myths that obese people believe that prevent them from getting healthy. Many of them are actually touted in the media, and even by doctors! 1. Exercise can make you skinny. This is a huge one. If it were true, then Sumo wrestlers would be thin. They exercise all day, every day, and are able to maintain over a hundred pounds of fat because they eat over six thousand calories per day. They eat their big meal at night to and maintain their weight. Many believe they can eat what they want and just exercise more to “burn up the calories” and prevent weight gain. We were told that a calorie is a calorie and (calories in) – (calories out) = (stable weight) Not true! If you don’t curb your intake, exercise can actually make you more efficient and cause more fat deposition. Don’t get me wrong, exercise is important for maintaining health and strength, but just don’t believe the myth that you can lose fat by exercising. 2. Eating less fat causes weight loss. Another common myth is that low-fat diets cause weight loss. This idea was started over thirty years ago, allowing for an experiment on the whole society. As people eat less fat, they eat more carbohydrates. In fact, since the 1970’s sugar consumption has gone up dramatically from about 30 pounds per person per year, to now, the average American eats his weight in sugar every year! This has caused an epidemic of obesity, as well as diabetes. Over 60% of the population is overweight, and about one fifth of the entire population is either diabetic or pre-diabetic! Low-fat diets don’t lower body fat. 3. Low thyroid causes weight gain. I am amazed by the sheer number of people who still believe that they are overweight because of a “thyroid problem.” Clinics in the 1980’s for weight loss that gave people high-doses of thyroid hormone were surprisingly unsuccessful. Multiple studies on the effects of thyroid on weight have failed to find a connection – and yet the myth persists. There are many medicalRead more…
