Ask Me Anything: Holly Hagan - TV Personality, Nutrition Coach and Ditch the Label Ambassador!


Holly Hagan

Question

  • VIP (Public Figure)

This AMA is now closed. Thanks for all of your questions!

Hey everyone! 
I’m Holly Hagan - TV personality, nutrition coach and Ditch the Label Ambassador. I try to use my platform to raise awareness of the many mistakes I’ve made in the past when it comes to diet culture. Educating people on the correct way to look after their body and mental health. I speak a lot about my experience with eating disorders and fad diets which were a product of years of appearance based bullying both on and offline.

Meeting Ditch the Label I felt an instant connection to the brand and new it was something I wanted to be involved in! Since then we’ve worked on many partnerships together and have even spoken with MPs in the House of Lords on the topic of body image. I’m so proud to be a Ditch the Label ambassador, they have not only helped me but many of my friends overcome difficult online abuse.

Feel free to ask me anything and hopefully I can use my knowledge and experiences to help you. Ask me anything from body image and nutrition to trolling and about my time on Geordie Shore. I'm an open book! ❤️

- Holly Hagan x

Can running on the treadmill do a full body workout or do you need to incorporate other things?

Hey Holly, my question is what is it like to be famous? x

hey! so its weird I don't class myself as famous. I guess I'm recognised etc but I wouldn't say famous. its a very strange feeling being recognised though its not something I think ill ever get used to! even ten years on I'm still baffled when people know who I am lol! x

Hi Holly, a question for you and Jacob tbh. What do you both think is the secret to a healthy relationship and making it last?

hey!  I 100% think communication is key to any successful relationship. trying to put yourself in the other person shoes and also accepting when you're wrong is a really important. we never argue in 4 years we've had 2/3 arguments and I believe our strong communication skills and boundaries are to thank for that x

Hey, I have been struggling a lot with binge eating and I'm too ashamed to tell anyone. A lot of my family members have been pointing out my weight gain , even in public and it makes me feel so horrible that I turn to food and it is a horrible cycle for me. What should I do?❤

hey! so sorry to hear that I've certainly struggled with these things in the past and I think it would be beneficial to speak to a doctor about you concerns. setting boundaries with your family members will be helpful let me give you an example

" I don't find comments about my weight helpful and id appreciate if you stopped bringing it up"

I think speaking with a professional is the best bet sometimes family members struggle to understand and lack empathy which can make you feel worse x

Hi Holly, great to welcome you to our community! My question: what has been your career highlight so far? 🥰

Hey! I think it has to be getting into the fitness industry and being able to educate my followers on all of the dangerous expensive fads there are out there x

Hi Holly! Great to have you here. What was your favourite scene to film and why was it the one with me in the House of Lords? 😂 But seriously, if you could choose one - which would it be?

hahahah! House of Lords was fabulous although I was very nervous LOL! I  think it would have to be Mexico series 3 we were so young living our best life riding a little yellow boat in the Mexican ocean it was so fun x

Is your calorie deficit weight loss plan suitable for breastfeeding mums, who need to have a higher calorie intake to produce milk for baby? X

no it isn't. nobody should be in a deficit whilst breastfeeding as the baby needs nutrients x

I really struggle to find outfits for larger chest and small waist. Would you ever make a fashion page?

I honestly just live in gym wear so I don't think people would care too much about what I was wearing unfortunately haha! x

Hi Holly! If you could go back and change anything from your own personal experience of being on TV - what would you change and why?

Where did you gain your nutrition qualification from and how long did it take you to complete? 

I completed my precision nutrition coaching course during lockdown it took me around 6 weeks to complete but I was doing it pretty much full time 5 days a week x

from someone who spent her entire teens and half of her 20s desperate to be skinny and pretty, honestly it just gets easier as you get older. when you know what you bring to the table aside from your outer appearance you can then really start to work out who you are as a person. what I've come to realise is you can be the prettiest girl in the room but if you aren't a good person you won't be attractive to others. being a good person and having a beautiful soul is what radiates though. id much rather someone tell me I have a beautiful soul than a pretty face x

Ok making this my 2021 mantra! Love this @Holly Hagan

      Hi everybody!
      I'm Michelle Elman and I'm a life coach, author, influencer and public speaker. You might know me online as Scarred Not Scared and most recently, I released a book on boundaries called The Joy of Being Selfish. I'm most passionate about showing people how to live their most empowered lives whether that's around boundaries, body positivity or dating and I work with DTL because I think it's important to demonstrate authenticity online and I believe DTL give people a safe space to discuss the issues that often arise online and through working with them, I hope to give people the tools to love themselves just as they are!
      You can ask me questions on any topic. I have worked with an array of clients on different problems so you will be hard pressed to find a topic, I haven't encountered before. To find out more about me, I'm @ScarredNotScared on Instagram, TikTok and Twitter and if you would like to ask me more questions, I answer questions weekly on my podcast In All Honesty or on Instagram on Mondays. 
      I'll be live on the Ditch the Label Community on Friday 9th July from 16:00 BST time, but you can leave your questions in advance on this thread.

      This AMA is now over, thank you to everyone that submitted questions and a huge thanks to Mia for joining us!
      Hello everyone! 😃
      I’m Mia Kang - a model, author, tv host and activist. I try to use my platform to raise awareness and discuss different issues like racial injustices, eating disorder recovery, body image issues, mental health (in particular anxiety and depression) and feminism. DTL and I have had a long relationship and as someone who was bullied and cyber bullied in school, I truly believe all the work that they do is not only important but necessary. DTL and I have partnered on projects together in the past but they have also supported me and helped me through things I have personally had to deal with, both online and offline. I’m so proud to become an ambassador for an organisation that I not only wholeheartedly support, but they truly practice what they preach. 
      Feel free to ask me anything! I’m an open book, and am a big believer in talking about things to break social stigmas. 
      Xx

      Best,
      Mia Kang / @MiaKang
