James Corden 'fed up with being unhealthy,' joins Weight Watchers
Wonderwall 2hrs ago

James Corden has partnered with Weight Watchers and is publicly vowing to get his weight under control. 

The late-night host got emotional while speaking about his struggle to get healthier.

"I've realized that every year for the past decade — probably even 15 years —on January the first I've told myself and anyone that would listen that I'm going on a diet, I'm going to lose a load of weight," he said on the WW Youtube page. "I'm fed up with the way I look, I'm fed up with being unhealthy, this is the year I'm doing it." 

"Because of that, over Christmas I've eaten everything that's in the fridge because in my head in January I'm starting this diet and it'll be a success. And as you can see it hasn't," he continued.

James said he got to the point where he simply accepted that this was his body and his life.

"It's starting to get me down in a way," he added. "I've never been able to stick to anything like that. I've spent a long time accepting that this is my body and that's it. But I really am sick and tired of just doing the same thing every year."

The affable host said he reached out to Weight Watchers and the company agreed to help him with his health-inspired goals. 

"I'm going to embark on this year of health," he vowed, "because I absolutely believe that [Weight Watchers] has the tools in place to make this the year that I really do make this change."

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
