Our expert says:
Check with your doctor if there is any genuine reason to believe you might be over or under weight, and make it clear you won't rely on the non-expert opinion of a sister-in-law.
It is of course nonsense to believe that everyone who is fat has chosen to be ( and the unconscious doesn't really exist ), or indeed that everyone who is thin has chosen to be thin - there are many posible causes for such a situation.
If you do need to lose weight, see a good nutrionist, and get on a good diet and exercise plan, not one of the schemes which make so much money because they don't work ( if they really worked so reliably, they could offer a money-back guarantee ! ).
I would never recommend that ANYONE EVER follow the advice of Dr Phil, especially not on medical and nutrition matters, where he has no qualifications whatsoever. Not that his eccentric psychological methods are that well substantiated, either. I think he markets unproven and un-useful dietary products - that guy is a marketing and entertainment phenomenon, NOT a serious health provider or expert on any aspect of health
And a Racoon poins out, technically you are not overweight. Your sister-in-law is over-opinionated.
