Yvie praises her doctor, but admits the doctor’s ‘really focused on my weight’ is ‘the cause of all my problems’.
‘And past wishes really shame me, and I just feel ashamed. And like, this is my fault. I did this to myself,’ she explained.
‘And she just put me on a plan of care, signing me up well to do a plan of care with a dietitian and nurse to take it all in, like, my weight and inches and anything, you know, all the things that you. need to be completed. BMI, of course. ‘
After much thought, Yvie decided to call the doctor’s front desk to cancel the plan of care.

“I have to start standing up for myself saying yes, I didn’t ask for it,” she told co-host Angie Kent.
‘And all it’s going to do is make me feel like I have to lose weight in order to be honored and accepted in a healthy way, when I’m actually a pretty healthy person with a few unrelated issues. my weight .
‘So I have to keep reminding myself and I’m really glad I got that, that we talked about this because I was like, ‘I have to be that person above me. Celebrities… Get Me Out of Here! that refused to carry a weight.”
Yvie subsequently dropped her BMI, despite being told by her doctor she was ‘really tall’.
‘When I was having surgery on the doctors and they said, “Your BMI is very high”, I must say that the BMI was conducted and created by four French doctors, all weighing and same height. And it’s absolutely a bull. ‘
‘Those are cows t**t!’ Speaking on her podcast with co-host Angie Kent, Yvie then slammed her BMI (body mass index) system, despite being told by her doctor she was ‘really tall’.
Earlier in the episode, Yvie said: ‘Every time I go to the doctor, they just say, “Oh, you’re so fat.” I could completely recover from it and they would say, “Oh, you’re a bit fat. Maybe you should lose some weight? ”’
She said she has received a lot of messages from listeners who are in a similar situation to their GP and have all of their health problems reduced in size.
“We really need to start holding them accountable, these GPs,” she added.
Bored! Yvie said doctors often break down her health problems down to her weight, regardless of the illness or problem she’s going to have with them.
Yvie then shared the story of a woman who had bowel cancer, but was fired by her doctor because of her weight.
“She could have lost her life because of that one doctor, because of a judgment they made,” she said.
Both Yvie and Angie also encourage people to seek referrals from general practitioners to see specialists.
This isn’t the first time Yvie has defied her doctor’s orders when it comes to her weight.
Last year, she revealed she had been ‘fat-shamed’ by her doctor after going in to check on a lump on her neck.

Yvie retweeted a video on Instagram of a woman claiming her doctor dismissed her health problems because of her weight and shared her own experience of being referred to a dietitian after complaining about a tumor in the neck.
“I have also been shamed by doctors about my weight for years,” she wrote.
‘In Sydney, I went to the doctor about a lump on my neck. Without hesitation, he asked me if I could go back to the dietitian without telling me what was wrong with my neck. ‘
Yvie added: ‘I want to know what’s wrong with my neck. F**k you. F**k guys. And you wonder why people would rather die than be slandered like that. ‘
The reality TV star also claimed that defaming fat people discourages people from going to the doctor.
