According to a new study, young girls who have been called “too fat” are more likely to be obese as young adults.
In other words, fat shaming doesn’t inspire girls to lose weight, but instead worsens the problem and hurts their health.Researchers found the effect was the strongest when the name-calling came from family members – which increased the risk of obesity by 60 percent, compared to 40 percent when the comments came from friends or teachers.
