Woman Who Went To A Fat Camp As A Teen Describes What It Was Like, Goes Viral On TikTok

To me, a thirty-something northern European, fat camps were just a Hollywood invention. I’ve never seen one nor have I known anyone who has.

However, the worldview I’ve adopted from my social bubble popped when I came across Hannah, an HR consultant and online content creator from the US who has actually had the displeasure of going to such an establishment.

But before we get into the details it’s worth highlighting that Hannah wasn’t put there against her will. “I struggled with my weight at an early age after some traumatic things in my life, and desperately wanted to fit in with my peers, so my parents had the means to send me, and I went,” she told BuzzFeed.

This wasn’t a spontaneous decision too. Hannah and her family did their research. “Based on the way they advertised the scientific validity of the camp’s weight-loss methods, we thought it would be extremely effective (and it was in the short term).”

“But it unfortunately ingrained unhealthy eating habits in me for the years to follow — which, based on some other people who went to a weight-loss camp in their teens who have commented on my TikTok, seems to be very true for many of us.”
