Does fat shaming help people lose weight?

After US talkshow host Bill Maher called for fat shaming to "make a comeback", fellow host James Corden's impassioned response won widespread support online.

 

"It's proven that fat shaming only does one thing," he said. "It makes people feel ashamed and shame leads to depression, anxiety and self-destructive behaviour - self-destructive behaviour like overeating."

 

"If making fun of fat people made them lose weight, there'd be no fat kids in schools."

 

But does Maher have a point? Almost two thirds of adults in England were overweight or obese in 2017. The NHS recorded 10,660 hospital admissions in 2017/18 where obesity was the primary diagnosis.

I think being fat is too accepted.

IE:  Oh, he is just a bear of a man.

Or,

He/she just has a big appetite and loves food haha.

It is more accepted I guess because everyone has to eat.

 

To me it seems like an addiction issue.  Not being able to control what one puts in their mouth.

Sugar, fat, grease, deep fried too much food I believe are all addicting.  Not much different then drug addicts.

 

And, it does really add hugely to the cost of medical care throughout the world.  All the obese problems heart, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancers etc lots of health/cost issues related to fatness/obesity.

 

I am not sure shaming them does anything however.

I think governments all around the world need to become serious about educating people on at least on what foods they should avoid eating, like white breads, rice, pasta's and opt for the browns, the low in GI ones, white's are loaded with sugars and starches, soft drinks, chips and the other baddies that also loads people up with sugar and hence the weight gain, no exercise, to burn off those extra carbs and you have the couch potatoes.

 

The sugar junkies of the world, add fast foods, frozen foods high in salts and sugars etc etc and we get used to them because they are quick to serve, heat them up and fill in the stomach and shut those screaming worms up, we crave and we over eat it, water is a great way to fill up the stomach, going clean is the best thing one can do, it's not hard, 3 to 5 small serves a day, once we learn what to eat and what to replace the <deleted> we used to eat with and what it actually does for our bodies, and watch the weight just drop off, add some cardio and light weight training and there is no fatso anymore.

 

The amounts of money the governments could save on overloaded healthcare systems for diabetes, heart diseases, strokes etc etc could be used elsewhere, like in education on the foods we should avoid at all costs, starting at schools, with school canteens banning any of the baddies, because it's all got too start somewhere, but na, that's too hard, especially here, just saying 🙂

Im a sugar freak weed smoking pizza cheese munchy junky bachelor that lives alone and hence my diet isnt the best. Im still 17 pounds over and it sucks. The girls in Thermae poke my belly. When I dont shave, they call me santa claus. The only think I can do is keep walking and fighting the urges for ice cream, white bread, cheese, beef, hamburgers, pizza, quesadillas, pudding, khanom, coconut, eggs, rice and so on. 

 

Thats really my only bitch about being here, trying to lose weight in a world of pastry stands.

Do what I do, eat total <deleted>  but only once a  day, this way you can eat what you  want, didnt say its "healthy" but who decides healthy or  not? too many athletes  seem to die young.

If you're referring to all the "fat" between Bill Maher's ears then the answer is no. Nothing will change that arrogant, self-centered, in-love-with-himself loser. Shaming him will only cause him to open his belligerent pie-hole again.
