Who Are You Calling Fat?
FAT a word people avoid using because they think it will upset to many clients.
I USE IT with all my weight management clients. Why?
First of all it’s a medical term for what it is and second it about being honest with yourself and myself being honest with you.
I know some fat people who hate the word and refuse to use it or admit they are fat and overweight, those people will not seek help and unluckily for them will probably remain fat and unhealthy risk all sort of weight related issues when they are older. I leave them to make that choice.
I have tried many ways and methods to treat my clients and always respect my clients. I explain in the complimentary consultation that I do and will use the word fat.
I think being straight talking and honest is the best way to help clients in this area of weight management. I have a couple of rules but the main one is to leave the excuses at the door so we can work on the real reasons. The more you make excuses the more it validates your behaviour or bad habits.
Once we get to the core issues and help to resolve them I then work on the education of the client helping them with diet and general advice mixing it in with some confidence, self-esteem and determination. I want them to feel good about a change in their lifestyle, their mind set and themselves.
So using the word FAT is a tool I use in a very straight talking but understanding and respectful way.
