Are You Embarrassed By What You Eat?

More than one in three working women suffer from ‘food shame’ according to a study carried out by a European food manufacturer. They also actively worry they will be judged by employers and co-workers on what they eat. Eight out of ten women surveyed admitted their self-confidence was directly linked to their weight and stomach size, while one-in-five said they were unhappy with their appearance. Half of those aged between 18 and 35 said they constantly worry about what they can and cannot eat. The researchers feel that women are facing increasing pressure to match up to the unrealistic body perfection they see in magazines and on social media. It’s more important than ever to encourage a more balanced approach to health and weight.
