I've thought this over and I'd definitely say it's being weak.

Lack of willpower is the biggest issue, nobody is happy being obese and anybody that says otherwise is in denial.

Another factor could be that people justify their obesity based on how many others are, which just diminished the chance they will push to get in shape.

As a side note: if you say it's because they're lazy, you have to also (and equally) say that they are unlucky in their genes or biological make-up. I know a lot of people who are lazy as fuck, but have the fortune of not growing fat as a result. Yes, they can do something about it, but they're also unlucky.

most it's because they're not diciplined enough to carry on. at work ther's this fat woman who wants to diet but only on tuesday, wendsday and thursday, because weekends are holy and friday and monday are also 'part' of the weekend according to her. so people like this make me want to puke in their face

Lazy = Unproductive

Lazy + No willpower against food = Fat

I'd say both of those are at least partially influenced by genes, though I couldn't tell how much. It's never just nurture or nature, it's an interaction between the two. I'm just saying that there probably are 'fat' people who are less lazy than some skinny people, as a point of nuance (which is something that mostly goes unappreciated in debates).

the majority of fatness is due to diet. Of course if you don't want to be flabby and unhealthy you definitely need to be at least slightly active.

some people are more predisposed to being fat than others, but probably 99% of them could do something about it if they wanted to. speaking from my own background, everyone in my family says that fatness is in our genes, but I'm willing to bet anything it's because it's because they're almost completely sedentary and eat rice like 6 times a day. correlation =/= causation etc

I'd say genes do have something to do with how easily you can get fat to a degree, but that doesn't mean those people can't be in shape. It just takes the motivation to do something. Nobody HAS to be fat.

I didn't, and both of my parents are overweight.

Oh yes, there is one answer to this because all obese people are the same.

Sure there are variables, but I'm sure there are some generalization that can be applied to most obese people.

I agree (see my earlier posts), except for those very few with a serious illness.

Agreed, unless you've actually been diagnosed with a thyroid issue, you're just making excuses for yourself.

Not to mention ruining all credibility for those that ACTUALLY have those issues. It's like crying rape, but crying fat.

I know for some it's just laziness, but to say that's the only reason is short sighted. Clearly each person is different, and not all will have the same reasons.

Most people I've met who say the first bit, when they actually do the math and count their calories, & adjust for their activity rates, aren't really eating that much.

Sure, metabolism speed plays a role, but for people who don't have retention problems, I think the effect is minor.
