A MOTHER from Melbourne has admitted that she is “fat-shaming” her teenage daughter, and a doctor has warned her of the serious consequences of this.
The mother revealed to the doctor Dr. Zac Turner states that she is fat-shaming her 13-year-old daughter and wants to know more about the long-term effects of this for her child.
She explained: “I inherited something from my mother that I fear I will pass on to my own 13-year-old daughter: fat-shaming.
“My mother used to embarrass me in my childhood, and as a result, I have had a complex about my weight and figure all my life.
“I’m like a yoyo dieter because I love my food, but I also turn on myself when I look at myself in the mirror.”
The mother went on to explain how she is tired of watching negative commercials that perpetuate weight loss.
She said: “It’s the new year and we’re currently being bombarded by weight loss ads and ‘success stories’ of celebrities and I find that very triggering.
“These ads pretend to be about regaining your health, but I see them for what they really are: ads designed to make me feel bad about my ugly figure.
“I have found myself talking to my daughter in the same way my mother spoke to me and I see the results first hand.
“My daughter does not like to eat in front of others, she will always be on the next diet and I often see her looking in the mirror.
“What kind of problems in the future will I get my child into?”
Dr. Zac Turner responded to the anonymous mother’s fears, saying: “According to surveys, at any given time in Australia, one million people live with an eating disorder.
“One of those people could be your daughter, one could be your mother and the other could be you.
“I recommend that you take your daughter and yourself to a professional and seek medical attention if you fear she has anorexia, bulimia or even in some cases overeating or overeating.”
Dr. Zac Turner amplified the severity of eating disorders, revealing that he draws the line at fat-shaming.
He added: “Do you want to know what’s really scary? Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of all psychiatric disorders.
“I apologize for being gloomy and doomed out of hand, but I find eating disorders very serious.
“I’m an advocate for people to live a healthy life, which means I’m asking people to lose weight and build muscle.
“I do, however, draw the line at malicious fat-shaming, which ultimately leads to mental illness.
“Nothing good comes out of someone being forced to suffer with an eating disorder.
“You need to think about the future of your daughter’s health if she continues down this path.”

Dr. Zac Turner then continued his response with three steps to get the woman’s family out of this cycle.
He stressed the importance of loving yourself and encouraged self-love exercises.
He said: “Self-love is the key and it starts with the little things. Statistics have shown that one of the biggest fears for 80 percent of young teenage girls is getting fat.
“I recommend that you do self-love exercises with your daughter. This can be as simple as taking the time to sit down with her and check in. Open up to her about how you feel about your body and ask her to do the same. “
Another tip that Dr. Zac Turner stressed was to ensure proper nutrition for the body.
He continued: “You need to nourish your body properly with amazing whole foods. You need to exercise daily, but not excessively.
“And you need to sleep properly – about eight hours a day. If you do all three together, you will feel great and start building a positive body image.”
The last step was to eradicate fat-shaming when you see it occur.
He advised: “Now that you know what it takes to get yourself out of this headspace, you can empathize with others who are in it. I recommend that you stop fat-shaming when you see or hear Unless we all fight against this together, the health of our people will be worse in the future.
“There can be positive sides to being mindful and helping friends and family improve their health, but always offering solutions.
“If you’re ever unsure of what to do, there are plenty of people who can help. Whatever you do, keep trying and never give up! If something does not work, try something else or chat with someone. new person you can do it! “
