Fat. It’s a descriptive word, an organic substance, a macronutrient, a way we feel, an insult.
We can classify it biochemically as saturated or unsaturated depending on the number of double bonds. We can talk about how it’s essential for our bodies, that it forms a layer that protects our organs and how it’s what our cell membranes are made of.
When we start discussing how to increase or decrease levels in our body, Fat becomes a word that ventures into dangerous, forbidden and contradictory territory. It’s a word we call ourselves but don’t want our daughters to hear. Or use about themselves. We can decide it’s the reason we’re miserable or single, or missed out on something we wanted, all while we tell our friends it’s absolutely NOT the reason they are miserable, single or missed out on something they wanted. It’s a word we think about but don’t dare talk about.
Here at the F Word, we’re not afraid to talk about fat. We know it’s just a word. As far as we are concerned fat is little molecules found in our bodies. We need it for hormones and cell walls and structurally it’s a major component of our brain. There’s nothing wrong or bad about it, but sometimes we accumulate it, and just like any other type of clutter, it starts to get in the way of our goals.
If you want to reduce levels of body fat the F Word can help.
LOSING WEIGHT SHOULD BE EMPOWERING NOT DISEMPOWERING
We want to help you lose weight because you LOVE yourself, because you have some EXCITING goals ahead and because you’re prioritising your HEALTH and how you feel. When you’re heading towards something INSPIRING, looking after your health is one more positive piece of the puzzle.
We DON'T want to help you lose weight because you hate yourself, your circumstances and think that maybe losing weight will solve all your problems. Because it won’t. If you’re feeling bad about yourself or running away from something you don’t want, losing weight is one more piece of hard work to overwhelm and berate yourself about.
We know that ultimately it's not fat itself that can make you unhappy and therefore losing fat can’t make you happy. It's the thoughts and feelings and beliefs we fill our minds with, that we have complete control over, that determine our perception of happiness.
