Genes and big bones.


The difference between a "fast" metabolism and a "slow" one is about half a peanut butter sandwich per day.

If we are talking about people who are so disgustingly obese that they can barely walk then I absolutely do not believe that it was due to anything other than being extremely lazy.

Sure you can be large due to genetics, but there is a limit.

You're fat, you disgust me, and yes, you should kill yourself.

Hmmm...

All I have is anecdotal evidence to the contrary, but my wife's mother eats truly ridiculous amounts of food every day, does not exercise and maintains in the 105-110 range and has for years.

Seriously, she eats far more than I do, going so far as to get up at night and eat leftovers and/or sweets. It's a running joke when she stays at our house that 'no food is safe'.

I had a roommate several years ago that was the same way. Poor bastard was actively trying to gain weight using supplements and massive quantities of food and it just didn't happen.

But admittedly those are the only two I know of, and that's hardly a competent sample size.

Portion size is important too - even if you constantly snack throughout the day you might still be eating less than someone who eats 3 large meals. The details of most metabolic pathways still need to be researched further. But definitely if calories in > calories out you will gain weight, you just have to find out how to strike a balance where you want it to be.

Obese people can lose most of their weight by diet alone. So it's not laziness, it's ignorance. People don't realize how fattening some foods are.

If you're lazy, you're emotionally damaged because you're lazy. If someone is fat, it's in his or her genetics to be fat, either because it's in their genetics to have a really low metabolism, or it's in their genetics to be lazy, or it's in their genetics to be both. If you think about it, all we are are our (are are our lol) genetics.

There's no single kind of "fat people."

The ones I sympathize the most with are the ones who have fat parents and they're pretty much obese before they can remember. Their parents overfeed them McDonalds and KFC and they can eat whenever they want. That's a cause of fat people.

I don't think the emotionally damaged kind are too common but I can see it. I know people who don't eat a lot or eat healthy, but if they're ever going through tough shit like a really bad break-up, they just eat non-stop, like really bad junk food.

You also have what I think is the majority, were people get older, metabolism starts to suck, and their life gets boring and they just eat.

And some people just f*cking love food.

A majority of people aren't fat and because they've accomplished so little in their lives they want to tear down fat people and try to build themselves up with some ****ed up feeling that they actually did something to be thin, when most of even those people don't have to exercise.

In short, **** you self important cuntcandles.

I sympathize for "fat people" because I used to be overweight myself. I used to be scrawny growing up, then I gained a shit load of weight and actually got fat, then I lost a lot of weight in just several months from diet and exercise. I think in general people treat you with less respect when you are "fat" as opposed to when you are "scrawny."

Did your genes tell you to lose weight?

I mentioned that in my post. Sometimes fat parents can make for a fat baby and then that baby becomes a fat kid and so forth rises someday a fat adult to likely repeat the process with another fat adult who actually gets its on with them.

Even then once you reach a certain age you can see for yourself waht needs to be done and find the will power to do so.

Even with a slow metabolism you can work harder than others to make up for it. Its called dealing with it.

The only true excuse to me is whatever gland or thyroid problem as that legit makes it hard to lose and keep weight off. Other than that you CAN make yourself get up and get in shape.

Though i will say i dont mind a girl with some meat on her bones.........

I agree.

If a person is morbidly obese, then obviously they're lazy and disgusting. But I know some heavier people who eat well, and workout, and they're still big. Not OBESE, but they've got some flab. Maybe they aren't doing something right, but they're at least TRYING. Hardly what I would call lazy.

I watch Embarrassing Fat Bodies on TV quite regularly. Some of the stories on there make me sad

Some are really stupid though, like the woman who ate 10 Yorkshire puddings for lunch and dinner and when presented with vegetables she was like "why would someone eat leaves?".
