But I cannot walk because my feet hurt so much so how am I expected to lose weight?
So many foot problems can be related to being over weight:
- Type 2 diabetes
Foot pain such as:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Posterior tibial tendonitis
- Hind foot arthritis and many more.
Please seek help and advice from your local podiatrist.
You may require a routine foot treatment, foot care advice, footwear advice or supply or the prescribing of specialist insoles or orthotics that will help you walk without pain.
Changes in the size of your feet
Being overweight can cause feet to ‘splay’ and become wider and the arch of the foot flatter.
This is particularly evident in childhood. When you are young the bones in your body haven’t hardened so if a child is overweight the arch of the foot can flatten and cause a change in the whole structure of the foot.
It is vital to wear a comfortable, well-fitting shoe. For those who do have wide feet it can be more challenging to find a shoe that fits, but there are increasing numbers of footwear brands which are offering wider fittings.
Don’t try to squeeze your feet into narrow shoes which rub or pinch.
At the Basildon and Romford surgeries we are offering Foot scans that will tell you, your:
- Arch type
- Abnormal pressure points
- Foot size

Mrs Sushila Patel the Podiatrist
At the Basildon Chiropody, Podiatry and footwear Centre says: “Being overweight and obese, places increased pressure on your feet, ankles and lower limbs, which makes you more likely to experience:
Arthritis, foot pain and skin problems on the feet.
It can also create a debilitating cycle where people put on weight and then find it difficult to stay mobile and exercise, which can result in even further weight gain and make it harder to lose weight and regain good health.
As a podiatrist I want to help people address and overcome any foot problems and pain they are experiencing so that they can stay as mobile as possible and experience a better quality of life. If you do experience painful feet on a regular basis, please don’t ignore it, there is nearly always something that can be done to help.”

Feet for life month campaign 2014 is set to raise awareness of obesity and feet
As international concern regarding obesity remains high, the College of Podiatry has made this the theme of Feet for Life Month for June 2014.
With obesity rising in the UK, the implications of obesity on general health are vast.
Feet bear the brunt of weight in every stride.
Feet for life month aim to create awareness of the link between weight and feet.
The impact of this is often unrecognised, and therefore the campaign over the summer will highlight how being overweight or obese puts you at a greater risk of developing serious conditions.
It will also highlight how common foot problems in people who are overweight or obese, affect movement, and impact on walking and exercise.
Let your Podiatrist help you if you have any foot problems or painful feet.
