From the Daily Mail…
Model’s friend accuses magazine of photoshopping cellulite on model’s legs!
Overweight people have no idea how fat they are (and ’experts said misjudgments should be accounted for by obesity officials’ – I have no idea what this bit of the headline is trying to say)
Standing seats, fat tax and no life jackets: The seven predictions for the future of plane travel that look set to become a reality
Samantha Armytage says paparazzi spread was 'cowardly and mean' – and an attempt to bully her into an eating disorder.
Football’s fat cats have ended any hope of equality and fair play – those blooming fat cats again!
From the Telegraph…
Headteacher makes schoolgirls 'feel fat over too tight trousers' – when really, the girls are just wearing tight trousers and they want to wear tight trousers so let’s make it a body image issue.
Fat shaming 'makes people eat more rather than less' - probably only if they already are over-eaters. If they aren't then fat shaming them (going by the previous story) can have the opposite effect.
Farmed salmon has 'more fat than pizza' – so the Telegraph is suggesting that we should eat pizza rather than salmon, because FAT is all the same and is the only important nutrient in either of these foods. I think I have that right.
Now there's proof that fat-shaming doesn't work, it's time to change our attitudes towards obesity – this is the only story in the Independent this week according to Google. And it is a comment piece. Well done, the Independent.
From the Daily Express…

Nothing else from the Express! I am, honestly, surprised…
From the Times…
Prejudice against fat people as bad as racism, say scientists – why do they ask scientists? And how would you scientifically prove that? Shouldn’t they be asking philosophers? I couldn’t find out the answers to these question as the Times has a pay-wall beyond which I was unable to tread. And that is all the Times had to say on the subject of fat. It is the fat-shaming story again though.

'Fat shaming' doesn't work and makes people put on even more weight, doctors warn – another reason not to say anything to Kim Jong-un about his love of cheese – oops, too late!
Rio Ferdinand slams David Moyes: He even banned Manchester United stars from eating chips! (even though they were low-fat chips – I think the mention of low fat is how Google gave me this story for fat news)
From the Sun…
Nothing! I kid you not. Not a single news story about fat. But when you go the Sun website they appear to have even more of a pay wall than the Times, so I don’t know what to make of this.
Too fat to wash the dishes! Obese mum loses 11 STONE to become a Zumba teacher – how lovely, an inspirational weight loss story.
