On Being “Fat”

I have been “fat”.

As in, an unhealthy body composition.

Maybe that is why I am more comfortable with calling it what it is.

But when I use the word “fat” I am using it in the clinical sense. Your body is made up of many things. Muscle, bones, water (mostly water) and yes, fat.

If you come to me for fat loss we are going to talk about your body fat and what to do about it.

But don’t define yourself by your body composition.

The most harmful person calling you fat – is you.

Nothing anybody else says matters.

But if you keep telling yourself over and over, either consciously or sub-consciously you are fat, rather than you have fat, it’s going to be really hard to lose fat.

Because nobody wants to lose a piece of who they are.
