Description

Of course you're familiar with the statement, "I feel fat." But have you ever considered whether those words even make sense? Is fat a feeling? Trainers often make the mistake of merely teaming up with the client in their fight against their perceived loathsome body parts or their gluttonous habits. Take a closer look at the disparaging (and widely used) language called "fat talk" and its implications on weight management, social interactions, creativity, productivity and performance.
