      The Daily Mail asked two women to pose for pictures, one is a size 0 (UK size 4) and the other is an 18, in the hope of raising awareness of the increasing weight issues in the UK today.So - Is media coverage of size zero celebrities directly responsible for the increase in eating disorders in young girls? Or is the steady rise in obesity a far more worrying problem?

      Both women appear to eat a healthy balanced diet but nutritionist Fiona Hunter believes that the size zero model - Sasha Larner is eating less than half of the recommended daily calorie intake, and the majority of these are made up of biscuits & alcohol. Fiona had higher praise for the well balanced diet of Mikyla Dodd of Hollyoaks & Celebrity fit club fame.

      Both women claim to be happy with their weight, although Mikyla has recently slimmed down from 19st 2lb to 15st 7lb, losing 44lb when taking part in Celebrity fit club. She says:

      'I am perfectly content with my lot. If I never lose another pound, I will be happy. I am a desirable woman. I've got great boobs and my last boyfriend said I had a nice bum. I've certainly got no inhibitions when it comes to the bedroom. I know for a fact that you don't have to be slim to be sexy. I feel much better now that I've lost some weight - but I'd never want to be a size zero. Pictures of people like Nicole Richie in her swimwear are so worrying. They are all skin and bone, and look as though they might snap.'

        • I think sexy is a state of mind and you can’t achieve that state of mind if you are at odds with your body and loathe what you see.  I know many larger women who are confident in their own skin and they radiate.  

          For me, I have been on a weight loss journey for a little over a year and with each pound gone and size gone, I am more and more confident and more awakened sexually. My husband simply loves the change.  I love the change within myself as well and am enjoying each moment.  

          I don’t need to be a size 0. I don’t understand what a size 0 is actually or how sizes are made here in the USA.  When I started my journey I was a size 14. I thought my goal would be a size 6. I achieved a 6 this past Christmas and I am no where near my goal weight. It’s all confusing actually!  I agree, I don’t want to be all bones like some of these much covered celebrities. I like my curves and my breasts.  

          Nice post.  :)
