Believing you are fat could lead to weight gain

www.grub4life.org.uk today reports that healthy teenage girls who mistakenly believe they are fat are twice as likely to become overweight in their twenties, a study has found. 16-08-2012

Norwegian researchers found that six in ten teenage girls who felt too fat despite being of normal size went on to become overweight in their twenties, compared with three in ten who had no weight issues.
The stress of being unhappy with one's body, skipping meals such as breakfast and trying strict diets which prove too difficult to stick to could all lead to an increased risk of obesity, researchers said.
