Dr Oz: Men vs Women Fat Talk and Self-Esteem
Dr. Ramani Durvalsula says “fat talk” is when we automatically dismiss any compliment that is given to us because we see ourselves as old and fat, or a combination of the two. She says it is often done so automatically and in every setting of our lives that we do not even realize how much it happens or the damage we are really doing to ourselves. Dr. Durvasula explained that while fat talk is more common in women, men certainly do it too, and it needs to stop regardless of a person’s gender.
