We have received a few questions about the book and what we stand for, so I decided to put all this information in a blog. I realise fat and weight loss can be a controversial subject for some people, so we want our message to be clear.
We promote body confidence and health at every size. Whatever clothing size you are, there is every reason for aiming to be as healthy as possible. Even small changes, or just one healthier change every day, helps us to feel more body confident.
However we also know that it’s not actually possible for everybody to be healthy at every size. To be very under or overweight is usually not a healthy balance for most people. Our bodies all have a natural balance of body fat, different for every woman. If we maintain a weight or body fat level above or below our natural balance, for long periods of time, we will start to notice the effects health wise.
Of course your clothing size doesn’t necessarily govern how healthy or happy you are and it’s not a reflection of who you are as a person either. You are more important than any number on the scales and still you at whatever size or weight, so let’s forget clothing sizes as a goal and focus on health instead. When optimum health is your goal, the right, natural size and weight for your shape will come as a result and you will feel better than ever.
Not everyone puts on weight through eating and not everybody who is thin has become that way through eating, yet everybody is usually judged the same.
‘She looks overweight, she must eat too much’
‘She looks too thin she must be starving herself’
The media doesn’t always help, actually publishing this information about celebrities, making us think that this is what’s important. The only thing that really matters in life is our health, our loved ones and the planet we live on. That’s what is important.
Some people feel better about themselves when they are curvier and some feel better about themselves leaner, it is just the way of the world and we have appreciate everyone is different and respect that. What we do believe in though, is learning to love and appreciate your body for what it is and can do, not just what it looks like. Yes image is something in this world unfortunately, but health and happiness is far more important!
If you genuinely feel body confident, happy and healthy you have cracked it, but if not, the book is there for people that want to feel better, quickly. Weight loss is not our main focus but happens to be a side effect for people whose eating behaviour has lead them to becoming over weight. Habits and eating behaviour can be made healthier if that’s what you want…
