So someone who suffers a heart attack knows more about cardiovascular health than his cardiologist does?
A person who has the experience of suffering a heart attack knows more about the experience of suffering from a heart attack. Unless the cardiologist has also experienced the same. Then both would be able to speak of their personal experience of having a heart attack.
Then there’s the issue of the human cardiovascular system. That has been pretty fully mapped out. Anyone can look in any anatomy book worth anything and see at least a simplified explicable version of said system.
Cardiologists study this, as well as real human anatomy. This means that their objective study sets out to match the subjective experience of having a heart attack. Because one informs the other.
That is not the case with the human metabolic system. It has-to my knowledge-no comprehensive anatomical model, simplified or otherwise.
'obesity' is a bullshit word that tries to sound like something its not. It fails to parse weight as a metabolic outcome. The field of study dedicated to it is more interested in maintaining its own idea of what fatness and weight is and operates within those dictates. Which is why unlike cardiology, its been pretty much of FA use.
Just compare what’s been achieved over the last 150 years of cardiology and the last 150 of ‘obesity’.
There are some things that shouldn’t have to be said to those who consier themselves clevah.
levi-the-last-sassbender asked: Is there a limit to HAES?
From what I understand (and I’m skeptical of HAES culture because I think it has the potential to support healthism, which is the moralization of health status, and ableism) HAES simply supports the health goals of people at any size.
Say there’s a “limit” to HAES would suggest people at some sizes should start harming themselves rather than pursuing health goals. Which doesn’t make much sense if you support health, but which is quite close to what the culture actually believes fat people should do.
To me haes is mostly about healthism- that is the currently prominent;
diet + exercise=health aspect of it.
I think that’s fine because fat people’s weight loss dieting efforts meant many of us got to do things that whilst they didn’t make us slim, were useful to us in our lives, especially when divorced from that context.
Haes’s limited for me not so much by its healthism, more in the fact that healthism has never convinced me as any kind of health panacea. In fact, I suspect its highly overrated as an agent of health. Though I’m prepared to be proven wrong on that.
