If the government truly believe that 'shaming and scaring', people into losing weight will work then they are clearly as deluded as I had believed previously. Bad idea Boris, and truly not your best thought out plan for obesity and eating disorders

Does anyone believe that an strategy without including a set of early years policies will help? 23% of reception age children overweight or obese. 34% by yr 6. Early years set a trajectory. Where is the conversation around prevention?

Gov: We're launching an anti-obesity campaign! Everyone: Allow poor people to be in a position where they don't have to rely on fast foods and preheated meals? Give schools a proper budget for decent food? Better food tech education? Gov: we're banning adverts lol

The *choice* to be healthy is a privilege not afforded to all For the poorest 10% of households, following NHS ‘eat well’ guidelines costs 75% of their disposable income Tax on junk food should be used to subsidise fruit & vegatables

You go to your local shop you have £1 to spend on a snack. £1.50 for apples and 50p in the sale for a ready meal that has a load of crap in it. If you want to tackle then tackle the food prices everywhere. healthy food should be affordable to all.

As the government lay out their unthought through plans for tackling obesity, today at The National Centre for Eating Disorders we have a curiosity as to why they have not consulted with us and other professionals in this field. Shaming/scaring society will not work.

I welcome taking action to support people living with . However it is vital that we understand the underlying psychological issues such as that lead to people using food as a coping mechanism. I hope this is acknowledged in the new strategy 🤞

Boris is 'tackling obesity'? Next he'll be lecturing us all on how to have a long and happy marriage.

Maybe a slightly bigger idea than banning adverts is needed to fight ? Instead of forcing kids to play football in PE, we should be teaching them about nutrition as well. Turn it into a health class instead.

you can’t out run/cycle a bad diet. People still aren’t getting it. The only way people are losing weight is eating better.

Be kind when you see overweight people exercising. It's not easy when people take it upon themselves to comment on your size. We know we're fat, thanks, and we're doing something about it so stfu.

Banning adverts will NOT stop . Families and need to be taught how to cook and what to cook. You cannot expect change if you do not educate. A more pressing issue is the lack of dental treatment families have access to at the moment!

So, Boris Johnson is suddenly concerned about the nations health, after causing tens of thousands of avoidable Coronavirus deaths, through his utter negligence in protecting the nations health? What next, Boris Johnson giving marriage guidance advice?

Sincerely hope this week’s obesity strategy won’t descend to lifestyle drift, ad campaigns & fat-shaming. We need to start by understanding the inequalities, injustices, stresses & struggles that underlie our physical health & act on those

Reminder weight loss is simply about calories in > calories out.. you don’t even need to exercise just eat less than your body burns everyday. I did zero exercise until I got to 20 stone and was comfortable. You don’t need a fad diet just educate yourself.
