A personal trainer advocated fat-shaming because she thinks it 'encourages people to lose weight,' but health and fitness experts disagree

Personal trainer Danielle Levy has caused controversy by advocating fat-shaming.
"The more we fat-shame, the more people would keep their mouths shut and stop overeating," she said on UK breakfast TV show " Good Morning Britain. "
The topic was being discussed after Bill Maher said fat-shaming "needs to make a comeback," and James Corden responded by saying that if fat-shaming worked, it would have worked by now.
"Fat-shaming is just bullying. And bullying only makes the problem worse," Corden said.
Experts told Insider they agree that fat-shaming is not the solution.
