Just Put The Pizza Down – Assumptions About Fat Eating Habits

 

When it comes to my appearance & weight I have so often heard things like “Just put the pizza down and skip the donuts for once” often unsolicited…. So many people seem to find it hard to believe that I am not stuffing my face 24/7 with junk food ordering 4 take aways a day after having a full fried breakfast until they actually spent some proper time with me and see what I eat.

Many larger people out there actually have much healthier diets than you might think, eating quite well and with pretty healthy food (maybe a *little* too much of it, though). And no this is no “diet food shop” – this is ‘normal food’ & a pretty regular shop for me.

I, like many others, have gotten big by serial dieting, each time putting on a little more and each time wrecking my metabolism a little more. 20 years of guilt and weight fluctuations have messed with my head, metabolism, self-esteem and body as a whole.

So I have decided to skip the diets and try to live every day being the best & healthiest version of myself that I can be today, eating well, exercising & sleeping more. If that leads to weight loss great but should nothing happen I would still love my body just as much!

This is what body positivity and health at any size truly are about. Focusing on health & not size. Doing for your health what you can, not postponing “living” and “being worthy” till you have reached that magical number on your scale. Something so many of us have done, watching life pass us by while hating ourselves

Live now! Eat well! Move your body! Sleep well and a lot! And most importantly love yourself! And take care of yourself!

I would love to hear your opinion. Let me know what you think. I would also love to hear if you have made any similar experiences? How do you deal with it?

Lots of Love

I think this is so true, but what it comes down to is people have their body autonomy taken away from them. Even if someone wanted to exist on nothing but high calorie / high fat foods, that is their choice to do so at the end of the day, and no one has any right to police that. Not strangers, not family or even health care professionals. We all know that living a balanced diet with even small amounts of exercise lead to a healthy inside in terms of cholesterol and blood pressure, but that still doesn’t have any bearing on the outside if someone has something like PCOS or is unable to do any intensive workouts. And more importantly, it doesn’t make them less of a person.
