So my mum said something to me a couple weeks ago and I’ve been sitting on it. The main reason is because sometimes I need time to let something sink in and come to terms with it and I like to do some independent research as well. She’s been watching something on TV where the expert involved said “you can’t outrun your calories” essentially explaining … Continue reading The unrealistic expectation of trying to outrun your calories
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder but I don’t think that counts here. Between work, health and a holiday life has been a bit hectic. The world of MC4r news has been quiet but luckily there is always some weight loss news to take centre stage. One day I hope I can open my internet browser and not see some article about expert … Continue reading Are these really the 2023 European Congress answers to the obesity epidemic?
Dieting is something I talk about every now and then and I’m not an advocate for any specific type of diet. My advice will always be do what works for you because our bodies are all different and what works for one person, may not work for the next person. Our diet choices can also be because of lifestyle. For instance, not everyone has time … Continue reading To diet or not to diet?
Earlier this week a post appeared on my Instagram. Now I know the world is a little insane, and we have a day, week and month for just about everything. Personally I find it a bit over the top and I tend not to keep up with all of them. This post was particularly shocking to me when I saw it, because it was just … Continue reading The social media debate on EDAwarenessWeek and World Obesity Day
It’s been a hectic few weeks and I’ve not had much chance to sit and write. Luckily, there has been little MC4r news updates in the time I’ve been away. This tends to be the time I look into weight loss news, and it never disappoints to amaze me. Weight loss news saturated the internet with some of the most toxic content between commenting on … Continue reading Men vs Women: Double standards in media
I originally wasn’t going to talk about this but I’ve mentioned intermitted fasting a few times now. I don’t like the idea of promoting a diet so I’m going to do my best to not sound like I am. Over the years I’ve tried many diets from not eating carbs to keto and more; in the end, they’re not for me or sustainable. Around Christmas … Continue reading My experience with intermittent fasting
This blog post containing language about periods and female contraceptives. If this type of language makes you feel uncomfortable this blog post is not your cup of tea and I recommend you try one of my other posts. Every 28 days women experience their period, but what does this have to do with weight or MC4r? Well if you’re on a contraceptive it may have … Continue reading Are contraceptives stopping you from losing weight?
The weight loss community has to be one of the biggest in the world; and that fact alone is sad. Although it’s an incredibly supportive community, the fact there are so many who feel their bodies are not good enough is upsetting. Let’s be honest for a moment, we live in a world that preaches self-love, but haters still exist and often that one comment … Continue reading We can all help reduce the stigma that surrounds obesity
The other week I started to write a post and part way through I lost myself, and stopped. I felt like I was just writing aimlessly and that’s not my style so in good conscious couldn’t publish it. I will address that I’ve changed my web address, simple answer; I’m trying to save some money so I downgraded my plan. But this blog is still … Continue reading Finding the diet that works for you and sticking with it
The world of MC4r has been quiet lately, but there was something I wanted to talk about a few weeks ago so; off the back of my last post, I want to continue the discussion on whether it’s okay to comment on other peoples bodies. I was discussion with a girl in my business class about the insecurities girls face about their bodies regardless of … Continue reading Insecurities come in all shapes and sizes, let’s talk
I love dedicating this blog to obesity genes, but every now and then I enjoy a little bit of controversy. Earlier this week Kim Kardashian arrived at the Met Gala in the same dress that Marilyn Monroe wore to President Kennedy’s birthday celebration-slash-fundraiser back in 1962. Kim also revealed that she lost 16 pounds in 21 days in order to fit into Marilyn’s dress. Now … Continue reading Kim K Controversy: Your Body Your Business
So firstly, apologies for my absence. Just before Christmas I ended up catching COVID, I didn’t really tell anyone about it except the people I had to. I didn’t really want to make a big song and dance about it. Everyone has either had it or will have it at some point. I do have some ongoing issues, which is why I currently sympathise with … Continue reading Happy New Year: Find what works for you and stick with it
