    Fat shaming is damaging to health and can ultimately lead to weight gain. Fat-shaming makes people feel worse, instead of inspiring them, and they eat more and gain more weight. Fat-shaming means that overweight people are criticized and harassed for their weight and eating habits in order to make them feel disgraced. The truth is, this can lead to less exercise or weight loss. In most situations, the people who are perfect and never had a weight problem had to deal with fat shaming. The more people are exposed to weight bias and discrimination, the more likely they are, even if they are slim, to acquire weight and become obese. They will also die from any cause irrespective of their body mass index (BMI). Fat shaming is also associated with sadness, anxiety, low self-esteem, eating disorders, and avoidance of exercise. There is evidence that when people internalize weight distortion and turn it on themselves, the seriousness of harm increases. In one study, subjects with high internalization rates of BMI and other risk variables had a three-fold higher chance of metabolism than participants with low levels.

    Many observational studies examined weight discrimination and the likelihood of weight gain and obesity in the future. In one study of 6,157 participants, the probability that non-obese persons with weight discrimination will become even more obese in recent years was 2.5 times higher. Furthermore, weight discrimination among obese people had a 3.2-fold increase in the risk of obesity. This suggests that fat-shaming is unlikely to lead to weight loss. Some more damaging impacts supported by studies are presented here. People at greater risk for depression and other mental problems are discriminated against by weight. The increased risk of eating disorders, like binge eating, is connected to fat-shaming. Fat shaming is associated with decreased self-esteem. Weight discrimination can increase the risk of several chronic diseases by producing stress, weight gain, elevated cortisol levels, and mental issues. This type of bullying can not only increase weight, but it is also associated with depression, eating disorders, reduced self-esteem, and a high risk of several other mental and physical problems.

    I totally disagree with the thought that fat-shaming helps people to lose weight. Fat shaming is very harmful to health. It is very thought who think they have lose weight from fat-shaming they are doing torturing their body, losing fat is healthy for the body but you have to decide what is the reason behind losing fat you don’t have because same people always fat shames you. Instead of motivation, it’s harmful to their health and they end up eating more and gain much weight. It is also proved by the researchers. And most of the people who are fat shame are very slim and are in better shape. You literally help with your ideas that how you lost weight. This discrimination is causing stress on people who are fat which will drive them in eating more. It is also linked with depression anxiety attacks. Fat shaming, they are very wrong, maybe they will not feel bad today, they are saying they have to place themselves in your position. Fat-shaming triggers behavioral changes, through which eat more and put on weight and they don’t care about their body. So before saying anything to a person yon need to think at least what effect it had on a person you will never so people need to take care of this. even people who are don’t believe what society says and think because your body is not their property.

    Fat shaming means people judge, discriminate and harass overweight person. Fat shaming is something that the person will get depressed due to Fat shaming one cannot help people to lose their weight. In today’s generation, there are many people who does fat shaming which is very wrong they need to understand that one may suffer from stress, depression and anxiety. Fat person who are happy with their body shape but because of the people who does fat shaming on them, they gets into stress and start doing unhealthy diets and what not. Due to which it leads to health problems. Being fit is good thing but if the person wants to lose weight by their own choice than only the diet and workout will happen properly as per the professional instructions but if the person is getting fat shaming and in that pressure they are losing weight than it will surely gets affect their mental and physical health. People need to understand that they should motivate and encourage fat people to lose their weight instead of doing fat shaming it will not help them. They need to share experience and tips with fat people that will help them to lose weight. And it is nothing wrong, if the person wants to remain in the same body shape it is okay because all body shapes and sizes are beautiful in their own way. The only thing is society needs to stop judging it.
