I'm sick to death of the national obsession with weight loss. It just encourages anorexics and bulimics, and doesn't help others who need to put weight on. I've been underweight for nearly three decades. On the rare occasion we've had lots of food in the flat, I've eaten all day and put weight on. But we can't afford that much food, so I either need a huge cash injection, or help to gain weight another way.
I DO NOT want to be told to see my GP. I want help to be readily available to all those who need to put weight on, not just those who need to lose it.
We, the undersigned, call on the Department of Health to stop the national obsession with weight loss, and to give due consideration to those who need to put weight on.
