Interesting that a mental health diagnosis like anxiety (or, I assume, depression) could in theory be enough to raise the stage classification of an individual with no physiological symptoms of ill health, when those very diagnoses can be linked to environmental factors like weight stigma. Translation: “even fat people who are perfectly healthy should be required to lose weight, because our society’s fat phobia is admittedly toxic, and it’s somehow better to eliminate the *people* than our biases against them.” Really!?!?
