Are overweight stars setting a bad example?Tongue

Overweight celebrities are making dangerous weight gain appear acceptable, a medical expert is warning. Do you agree?Wink

Professor Michael McMahon says the higher profile of larger role models such as James Corden, Eamonn Holmes, Ruth Jones and Beth Ditto means obesity is now perceived as 'normal' by the public.Tongue

A survey of more than 2,000 individuals for Nuffield Health found many obese people are apathetic about their weight gain with almost one in five not contemplating doing anything to lose weight.Big smile

But former Hollyoaks soap star Mikyla Dodd, who previously weighed 25 stone (159kg), said larger stars showed overweight people they can be successful and motivate them to do something about it.Embarrassed

What do you think of the survey's findings? Are there more overweight celebrities nowadays? Do larger stars inspire overweight people? Or are they setting a bad example?Smile

Why is it that people blame television, McDonalds, celebrities, etc for obesity, but never themselves. Get off the freakin' couch for the love of God.

Overweight stars who'd get down to normal weight would be kinda inspirational.

Else fat people would get one very lame excuse to remain fat.LOL

Erm we have plenty of anorexic celebrities to counterbalance the big ones. Although I must say I adore and admire Queen Latifah and would love to be just like her. She maybe big, but she is funny,wittty, classy and gorgeous.
