How to Support Someone You Love in their Weight Loss Journey

How to Support Someone You Love in their Weight Loss Journey

Episode 4 of the NMP Body Image series is all about how to support the people we care about most in their weight loss journeys. Often, our well-intentioned comments, advice, or suggestions turn out to be hurtful or even damaging. Paige wrote an unintentionally controversial article recently for MyFitnessPal that stirred up lots of emotions and opinions of the MFP users. She talked about things to avoid saying to someone who is losing weight. One of the article readers contacted Paige asking for an expansion on the topic of supporting loved ones with weight loss. Paige asked him if he'd like to come on the show to share his experience and he said yes! From the point of view of someone who is currently on a weight loss journey who also happens to be a recent graduate with a BS in Kinesiology, Frank Wawrzniak and Paige discuss how people can support their friends and family who are losing weight in a compassionate and sensitive way.
