Silence the ‘Fat Talk ’ & achieve Weight Management Success #SpecialKCanada

I am not a fan of the word “diet” . I think it is a negative word and gives people the wrong impression. I prefer terms like “healthy lifestyle” or “making goals” or even “healthy choices”. As a person who has made goals and changes in their life I know it is not always easy. It is a long road and often you feel alone. Every day I need to make choices for my family and for my health. I know for my future I need to make healthy choices and I appreciate every ounce of support I get along the way.  A part of my daily routine has been Kellogg’s and their cereals and snacks. I have mentioned before how snacking is a weakness for me. So now, snacking can be good. You just need to make the right snack choices.

#SpecialKCanada is taking a stand by helping to silence Fat Talk through positive thinking

Kellogg’s Special K is determined to help Canadians accentuate the positive and silence the negative in their lives.  97 per cent of Canadians agree that a positive attitude can help them achieve their goals and two thirds (66 per cent) of Canadian women still admit to ‘Fat Talk’ – a de-motivating and contagious negative dialogue about their own or another’s body. Whether sparked by an unflattering photo or shopping for jeans, these negative comments are a significant barrier to weight management success.

Unfortunately, the truth is that negativity has become normalized in our culture and it’s weighing women down. In 2014, it’s time to put positivity first and shift the weight management conversation to a more positive one.


To help Canadians achieve their weight management goals, Special K is encouraging women to turn the conversation around by silencing the negativity and steering the conversation to be more positive and productive. In fact, recent Special K research shows that women who think positively are more likely to report success with their weight management efforts and are eight times less likely to gain weight than women who think negatively about their weight management.

Help silence Fat Talk with #SpecialKCanada to look and feel your best in the New Year


1. Think Before You Speak ‘Fat Talk’ is a defense mechanism for many Canadian women. In fact, when asked why they are most likely to engage in ‘Fat Talk’, 45 per cent of Canadian women answered: “It’s better for me to criticize myself before anyone else.” Be gentle on yourself! Silence negative thoughts internally before they manifest themselves externally.

2. Change the Conversation When ‘Fat Talk’ Comes Up Women who think positively about weight management were more likely to put a stop to negative conversations about their own or others bodies. You can be a positive influence on yourself and others.

3. Stop Comparing Yourself to Other Women Thirty five per cent of Canadian women between the ages of 18-34 are most likely to ‘Fat Talk’ when looking at photos of other women. Instead, let the others around you inspire you to achieve your goals.

4. Say Something You Like About Yourself Every Time You Self-Criticize Vocalizing the positive will help to shut down the negative.

Be sure to check out and create your own personalized weight management plans and stay on-track.
