This has been one of the busiest summers I have had in a long time, and it hasn’t even officially started yet. Last week a Tropical Storm came through. We only got a lot of rain, but it was kind of nice because we had been in a drought. I am still working on my Mindfulness class, and finished up a bunch of Nutrition classes. Which brings me to the topic of this post.
Do you know what a size zero is? Do you know, how skinny that really is, and how malnourished a size 0 probably is? I am not saying anyone should be grossly overweight, either, but most people don’t strive to be grossly overweight. I am always amazed at the human mind and what we really are able to convince ourselves is normal. Below, are two British shows, where they have Universal Health Care, on the topics of Obesity and Anorexia. While the series is a drama and I am sure some of it may have been dramatized for TV purposes, you can not escape the shock of the participants in the series Supersize vs Superskinny. There are 7 seasons and you can watch it right on Youtube. I only shared season 1 episode 1 below. You will see how the doctor uses the diets of the participants via meal swaps, to show the other how their bad eating habits really look and feel. There are other tidbits of information in this show. I learn so much from human behavior and watching others. If you are struggling with weight, either under or over, seek assistance to help you get on the right track. Just dropping 20 pounds can help your Health so much.
The second video is actually a documentary. I am not sure why it is pixelated, but all of the options for this one were. You still get the idea, and this video is shocking. It showcases a woman who is already a size 8, and her journey to be a size 0 USA size, or a size 4 in the UK. What she puts herself through in 30 days to drop two dress sizes is just awful.
As a Health Coach, I will never coach my clients into Fad diets, excessive exercise, starving ones self, etc, to lose weight. I promote healthy lifestyle change, and that takes time. There are no quick fixes here.
Please remember if you are underweight, or suffer from Anorexia, to please seek medical assistance. Being underweight is extremely dangerous and your heart can just stop. It may even be more dangerous than being overweight. This blog is for adults. If you are a child and are in crisis, please seek assistance from a medical doctor.
