Helen Lederer, a Welsh comedian, writer, and actress revealed that being fat held her back in more than just one occasion. The 58-year-old actress confessed that she’s convinced that her extra pounds direct impacted whether or not she is asked to audition for high profile ranking roles. She added that as her weight crept up, she started getting overlooked for mainstream jobs.
Recent research by XLS-Medical Fat Binder confirmed that Lederer is not alone. It was revealed that 33% of women who are overweight feel that they are treated differently by the society because they don’t have “healthy figure.” On the other hand, 47% of British women who were part of the survey revealed that they were teased because of their weight and 43% were accused of being lazy. The other 28% are convinced that because of their weight problems, they were purposely excluded from important social gatherings.
Eliise Lindsay, Celebrity Personal Trainer and Fitness Advisor to the XLS-Medical weight management programme comments: “This research has shown that there are some real prejudices against people who don’t have the stereotypical perfect figure. We are all different shapes and sizes and there’s no one perfect size. What is important is for people to feel happy and comfortable with their bodies. By following a healthy balanced diet and taking regular exercise people will find themselves getting in shape without any unnecessary pressure,” adds Eliise.
“Light to moderate exercise at least twice a week will help people to feel fitter and healthier. And a weight loss aid like XLS-Medical can help dieters lose up to three times more weight than dieting alone – a useful support to help people on the way to reaching their weight loss goals.”
Helen Lederer agree with EliiseLinday’s statement saying: “I am thrilled to report that I have lost two stones in the last three months by following a healthy balanced diet, exercising and taking XLS-Medical Fat Binder which has helped me lose more weight than I would have lost on my own.”
