Here is a fantastic guest post from our resident dietician Fiona Pring. I’m often struck by the amount of people who tell me how ‘good’ they have been with what they have eaten over the past few weeks. They assume the moral high ground and talk of how they’ve resisted the ‘bad’ foods they adore…

Today marks the start of National Obesity Awareness Week 2015 here in the UK, and as if in the last week we haven’t had enough of a fat shaming frenzy in the media I hope this doesn’t bring much of the same, I am not sure if I can stomach it to be honest. The…

Well come on…you didn’t expect me to actually go there did you? Really? Well, unlike some media channels I could mention, at The Fat Girls Guide to Running blog we prefer to focus on love not hate, so rather than run through the characteristics of “That” woman, much of which has already been debated, I instead…

The Fat Girls Guide to Running website was always designed with women in mind because after all I am myself of the female species, and it was a lack of information specifically designed for plus sized female runners that led me to start it but it turns out we have a few rouge men loitering…

So we all saw the headlines yesterday… NHS to incentivize weight loss in overweight patients And I guess its only right that I put in my two pence worth. When I was a child I didn’t like making cups of tea or coffee for my parents, so I often got out of it just by…

Don’t you just love that headline… “25stone mum says tax payers should foot the bill to help her lose weight?” …just what we need another round of fat bashing and bout of them versus us scare mongering…I’m sick of it. And to make it worse Katie Hopkins the new self-appointed queen of the fatties makes…

OMG its an O’Beast and its heading our way Oh no…I hope it isn’t catching Quick, quick…I can’t be seen with it, what will my friends think? So no this is not a trailer for a new hollywood blockbuster this is me trying to illustrate the ludicrus nature of the discussions I sometimes see on Twitter amoungst…
