My Response To Fatphobia Claims

I was scrolling through reddit today and came across this post saying I have “fatphobic tendencies”. This was really hard for me to read and caused me to take a critical look back at my previous comments regarding obesity, bariatric treatments, and diet recommendations (Keto, intermittent fasting, vegan, etc.) Our culture demonizes people for their weight, from rogue marketing pushing “ideal bodies” in media to a lack of representation for large bodied people on stage and on screen. That being said, I am a doctor, and my job is to help people live longer, healthier lives, and often those results can be achieved through a variety of tactics that will reduce the weight of people who suffer from obesity. It’s a fine line between helping my patients and making sure they don’t feel judged or criticized for the way they look, and I’m working hard to get it right.

  • This isn't fat phobia. Fat phobia is insulting and belittling a bigger person. The difference is for example in my opinion bullies at school laughed at my weight and told me being fat was wrong A Dr was concerned about my eating habits and how quick I put on weight because of a heartattack. One person was mean which is fat phobic Dr was doing his job as a medical Dr. No one fat phobic cares about your health, they just think being fat is disgusting because there disgusting people who want to hurt you

  • From what I have personally seen, I don’t believe that Dr. Mike is fatphobic. However, you absolutely must understand how someone could misconstrue his message when they’re in a vulnerable place. I understand what he means but I am also an eating disorder survivor and quite honestly, my defenses go up when someone starts talking about weight loss. That is because it has been weaponized by diet culture against people like me. I am unapologetically anti diet, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think that you can healthfully lose weight through life style changes instead. I think that as a thin person Dr Mike has to watch how he comes across because it was people who claimed to be looking out for “health concerns” who drove so many of us to nearly killing our bodies with eating disorders.

  • He’s a doctor. It’s literally his job to tell you what is and isn’t healthy. Fat phobic is when you criticize someone constantly, when you say they aren’t pretty, aren’t worth anything just Bc of a number or a size. My doctor has always spoken with me about my weight in a way that is helpful. I live a much healthier life now. I’m not strict but I go to the gym regularly and I eat healthy regularly but I do have a day or two to just enjoy certain foods I don’t eat on a consistent basis Bc it’s not good to eat consistently. I realized how my body reacted when I was over 200 pounds as someone that is 5’2” and was in no means a muscular person. I was just overweight. I had trouble breathing, sleeping, moving, working. It’s NOT good to be overweight like that. If you eat right and exercise as your supposed to and you’re still a litttle overweight according to BMI, and your doctor says you’re healthy, then remember that BMI is a point of reference but not an end all to the discussion. It’s about being healthy. Telling you the facts that it’s not healthy is not equivalent to fat phobia. My step dad almost died Bc of his obesity. It, along with many many years of heavy smoking and drinking, has caused him lung, heart, and liver issues. Most of his heart issues stems from being overweight. He has to undergo surgery Bc of gastrointestinal problems. Once he started eating better, a lot of those issues calmed down a little. He still drinks and smokes heavily though so he was surprised was eating better did for him. At some point society has to stop saying that being told you’re overweight by a doctor is a bad thing just Bc it’s not what you want to hear. It’s rough to hear those things but sometimes it’s necessary to save a life.

  • I really don't think any of these things are what makes certain doctors fatphobic. The problem with fatphobia among doctors is that too many doctors can't see past the fat body. No matter what the issue is, some doctors will tell the overweight patient that they're having this issue because of their weight, ignoring unrelated and dangerous illnesses. It took a lot of courage for me to finally seek help for my depression when I was 18. I left my doctor's office in tears because he told me to just lose weight, instead of refer me to a psychologist. According to him, all my problems would disappear if I was thinner.

PS on Intermittent Fasting i have done this for years with Zero negative effects. as for obesity, its not healthy, loose the weight and stop crying about people calling you fat.

  • I am a student nurse and I love how educational his videos and reactions are. When physicians or nurses are giving you health teachings about weight management, nutrition, and balanced diets it is not because we are fatphobic. It is because we see it as something necessary for your health and as a lifetime preventative measure for most diseases, especially heart diseases. As a nursing student, I am able to understand these facts and apply them to myself, because I myself am in the obese category. We mention these measures to you because we believe it will help you. It is not something that we say because we want to make fun of you. Be reminded that if you take offense to what your physicians say, be wise to think about it first before you react. We only want what's good for you.

  • As a dietetic intern, thank you so much Dr. Mike for putting the video out into the world. Getting a BEHAVIORAL COUNSELOR on the treatment team really can make a difference for a patient. When I wrote my practice treatment plans in school I loved referring patients to other professionals: mental health providers, exercise physiologists, certified personal trainers, physical therapists, dentists, social workers, SNAP/TANF/WIC/Medicaid benefits, reputable sources of information, and so on. Lastly, thank you for calling us registered dietitians and not just "nutritionists."

  • Gotta be honest, the person who said that they've only had one doctor not suggest weight loss, there's probably a very good reason they are suggesting weight loss. I'm overweight, I know it and I've worked at it. But it actually rarely comes up with my doctors. It's been mentioned when related to something it affects (for example, I'm at a risk of high blood pressure because it runs in my family) but unless it's something that is impacted by weight I rarely hear it. I went through a lot of appointments back in october about some health issues. Probably at least a dozen appointments with 4 different specialists just trying to find out what was wrong with me. The only time my weight was brought up was in relation to a scan showing a fatty liver (which wasn't actually related to my issue at all but was just a finding the doctor wanted me to be aware of). People need to stop acting like even the suggestion of losing weight is fat phobic. There's a difference between suggesting weight loss for health and just mocking someone for being fat.

  • I don't think "fat phobic" is a correct term here, I think perhaps "Fat prejudiced" would be more accurate. I believe that a majority (not all, but a majority) of Doctors see a fat patient in their office for the first time automatically switch to certain assumptions and act accordingly, often without even taking a simple test or blood pressure. Perhaps Doctors need to learn more in exploring the issue first before coming up with a diagnosis. If someone fat like me comes in with a broken toe, your first initial response to "lose some weight" is offensive (not to mention effing obvious!) and assumptous... how do you not know that one is already trying and working at losing weight? Stop making snap judgments without even exploring the issue at hand first.

  • I listend to a podcast which talked about feminism and body positivity. The female speaker said that it is wrong and fatphobic to be afraid of getting fat. Why is that? Of course I'm afraid of putting on weight, not because it makes me a bad person, it obviously doesn't, but because it makes me an unhealthy one. Another thing that they claimed is that you can be skinny but still smoke drugs so that would be unhealthy too. And I'm like, yes? What does that even mean? Of course consuming drugs is dangerous but that has nothing to do with being skinny

  • Umm, there's a reason why they call him Dr. Mike.. DOCTOR MIKE! Meaning, HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT! Just because a bunch of Instagram influencers are redefining health in their own twisted ways doesn't mean you get to challenge a DOCTOR'S medical advice! I watched the video in which Dr. Mike featured the reality TV guy. How hard is it to understand that he was stating facts? This guy is making videos and providing such valuable info for free people! If he says smoking is bad for your lungs and leads to respiratory diseases, will you say he is addiction phobic? Gosh! The body positivity movement is hugely misinterpreted. People are normalizing obesity like never before. Remember how plus size women started to shame Adele when she lost weight? Bullying or shaming someone into hating their bodies is definitely wrong. But that doesn't mean accepting obesity (a proven catalyst for various health problems) and celebrating it is the solution! The bottom line, even if someone is overweight, they can consult doctors to improve their health. They can take steps to improve their health. It's not about looks people, HEALTH HEALTH HEALTH! Sure, they can temporarily be happy about their bodies long enough to make efforts in a positive direction. After all, no one has to hate their present form and wait for a better body structure to make themselves happy!

  • Every profession has people who had to study very hard to make it through to graduation. Those people often view all their hard earned knowledge as basically gospel and thus, happily stop obtaining new knowledge as soon as they get their degree. In their minds, unless new information comes from the governing body of their profession, it is false and even dangerous. The very idea of evolution in their field is utterly intolerable to them.

  • Ppl think just because you state a fact like being obese gives you more health risk, your attacking them personally. No that's not the the case doctors are informing you. I myself a a bit overweight and I don't snap everytime my doctor says "hey you could use losing some weight your at risk for high blood pressure or high blood sugar". It's just not what what they are doing it's perspective you want to feel justified and like it's not your fault so you lash out. Which is ok is a normal response but if you want to get better you have to realize that but on the other hand if you don't care about about your weight while not recommended is your right.

  • Maybe where this comment is coming from is someone who was triggered by this sort of content. Just speculating here but people with certain eating disorders such as Bulimia or Anorexia (or professionals who have treated these disorders); after they are in recovery are told to stay away from videos like the ones described in the Reddit post and can feel quite passionate about it. Certainly not faulting Doctor Mike just showing a different point of view.

That was a fat-shaming comment. That was applying a value on my appearance and sex appeal, not providing a consultation on my health.

  • Yeah This Fatphobia movement is sort of ridiculous, because they're trying to normalize obesity also I don't want to say this but it's true but technically it's obesity for women, you hardly ever see "body positivity online in recognition of an obese man". As an overweight person myself this fatphobia thing annoys me, being overweight is one of a few factors that makes my life way harder, especially when you have extremely judgmental family. I've tried diets, more exercising and still I'll probably lose about 1-2 kilo's a month max, but I've also been on the other side of being anorexic, and both are terrible. Even with exercise (currently being overweight) I've gone up to the saitama workout (100 push ups, sit ups, squats, and 10km run 3 days a week), this only lasted a month (as 7 days a week would be a bit much, but I did do 5x the push ups and sit ups).

  • Here’s the thing as well, none medical professionals who comment on your weight (whom don’t know you, not family or friends) even trying to be “helpful” can easily be called fatphobic, because they aren’t doctors, they don’t know you personally or any conditions you do/don’t have, they don’t know if that’s just the way your body holds weight or anything about you, they just look at the “norm” and assume you are unhealthy. But DOCTORS should not care about the “norm” or your attractiveness or comparing you to anyone. They look at it from a medial standpoint and assess the risks. The difference between “regular” people and doctors, is very large.

  • You didn’t do anything wrong you’re a doctor doing your job the best you can. People are just too sensitive and insecure. Don’t let that bother you 😉

  • Discuss with your doctor but better yet, get a referral to a Registered Dietician in a clinical setting (not a "nutritionist" or Instagram nutrition "expert", these RDs are medical professionals who have years of education, internship, and practical experience to earn their title).

  • To be honest, why is this even a topic? why does someone take that "you need to loose weight" against a DOCTOR when he is talking from a health standpoint and backed with scientific explanations??? Do you expect as an obese person for Doctors not to touch that subject when talking about your health?? Why is it being taken too personal as if this doctor said something derogatory?
