“Obesity is genetically common in our family. I was being gaslighted and judged by a bunch of obese people, most of whom were doing nothing to improve their health and obesity issues. Yet they fully believe to this day that I am just naturally thin and could not possibly understand their obesity issues. When all I have ever suffered from is normal weight obesity and, in my adult years, being overweight and obese, no matter how diligent my diet, exercise, and lifestyle.”
Marc Nelson is a scientific researcher.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “My journey being gaslighted about obesity, skinny fat, and body type.”
