Many people hate fat. Fat phobia is a common occurrence and is accepted in society. Many complain about the “evils” that overweight people have brought to society. They claim that people who are fat are not part of the body positivity movement and spread false information about weight loss and obesity. They are bullies. However, fat acceptance has a place. It is important to recognize that fatness is not just an aesthetic problem. It can be a mental health issue.
In recent years, a number of studies have pointed to fat-hatred as the primary reason behind bullying among children. However despite these alarming numbers numerous institutions of public health have policies that increase the severity of the issue of discrimination and cruelty.

Only a handful of cities and states have banned weight-based discrimination in 2017.
Although fat was once considered an undesirable trait however, it has been reinterpreted in recent years. In the 1940s, being fat was often thought of as being fat, being obese, and being overweight.

Research has shown that being overweight or obese can have psychological effects. Children who are obese or overweight are also more likely to be victims of bullying. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one-third of children are overweight or obese. Therefore, it’s crucial to promote healthy body image among children.
In recent decades, America has faced a reckoning about weight and fat. Despite growing body acceptance women still view the accumulation of fat around their middle as taboo. The ideal size for women has evolved significantly from the coke-skinny look of the ’90s. Today, being fat means having rolls and other body parts that don’t fit the hourglass shape. A person who is visible fat is overweight.
Over time, this social desire for thinness has transformed into a medical judgment. In the 1930s being 5’5″ tall and weighing 125 pounds was considered to be thin. A person of the same height and weight today would be considered overweight. While no single study can prove it however, the medical establishment has a strong perception of thinness.
In the end, the negative image of people who are overweight has resulted in the absence of a precise diagnosis and timely treatment. Because of this, people who are fat are hesitant to seek medical attention because they fear being judged as fat. This could lead to an illness that is more serious than someone who has an objective perception of their weight.
Being overweight increases your risk of developing a variety of ailments, including diabetes, heart attack and stroke, as well as blindness. However, obesity does not necessarily cause these diseases. Many obese people are metabolically healthy and don’t exhibit any early signs of these diseases.

He has a BMI that is between twenty- and twenty-five and has been taking medication to lower cholesterol levels for a number of years.
