Seriously, Manawatu Standard? “Weighty subject of fat for talks”? WTF does that even mean?
But I appreciate how confusing it can be for the media to deal with any discussion of weight and health which isn’t a panic-mongering bag of crap, and applaud your decision to run the story anyway, what with its controversial statements like:
One of the main topics Dr Pause covered was the concept that being fat is not inherently unhealthy.
“People get very focused on weight, but weight is not a proxy for health,” she said.
Dr Pause advocated a “health at every size” approach and said obese people should not be told by medical professionals to lose weight as a matter of course.
