What a great thread for venting unfounded bigotry!

And to actively shun overweight people, well that is immature behavior expected from children not adults. How is their spirit of less value than yours?

This thread is just for people to poke sticks at "America: World Boggity Man"

Well unfortunately for most it's convenience, education... and price.
Most people people don't "have time" to prepare a meal that is both cheap and healthy so they stock up the freezer with cheap and nasty, yet convenient foods... and then when it comes to cooking it... all the kids dinners can be done in 15 mins or so.

Organic and naturally healthy food...in most peoples eyes, is expensive.
I mean Organic ranges in supermarkets are... but you can get fresh fruit and veg and pasta and so on and make a nice meal pretty quickly and cheaply... and this is where the education fits in... not everyone knows how.

Many people don't cook or prepare food any more.... they just "oven/microwave" everything.... all TV dinner, convenience junk.

It's a shame.

Again, being needlessly defensive.

I'm not devaluing anyone's spirit. I'm friends with several overweight people, and get along rather well with them. You are presuming that, so you can insult others.

I am talking about health. I am aware that there are books out there that say you can be fat and healthy, but there are also books you can read to justify racism.

Just because it agrees with your belief, doesn't make it really true.

I am talking about health. If you have something that isn't an insult, feel free to say it.

IM not poking at fat PEOPLE, im suggesting the fact that what america puts in their foods and the laws that allow them to put such things in their foods are disgusting and repulsive, no biggotry, people who are fat cant really help it, on the other hand the people who are fat because they are lazy, because all they do is eat and play games, then they need to tak e initiative, unless they are happy that wayor course

I am fat.

Now to me what is funny is how knowing that about me, some of you seem to think you know all about my lifestyle, how lonely and/or emotional I am, what I eat, how often I eat, how much I exercise, and where I go.

People talk about brainwashing and don't see that this focus on fat people is part of it?

You heard terror and Iraq in the same sentence long enough....now you get to hear disgusting and fat in the same. Where's it going? huh?

fat doesnt mean disgusting, i dont know where people get that, i know big women that are gorgeous absolutely stunning, and yes you can be a big person and be healthy, i just resent the people who use their weight for pity and get on welfare and dont do anything because they are "helpless"

I think two things are to blame. Parenting and the stuff thats in food these days.

If parents stopped there kids getting fat from the off. Maybe encouraged them to be more active and controled what they ate. That would help.

If food companys did'nt cram there products with so much crap then that would help to.

Ive got friends who are over weight because of these reasons. Now they want to lose weight they cant. Either they keep getting sold a con in the form of variouse mirracle diets. Or they lose weight just to put it back on again later. This saps there self esteem and they lose there will power.

The Answer is simple and they agree.

Eat less and move more.

You can buy my DVD at WWW...........

Only kidding. The causes are obviouse and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. Just because you fat, does'nt mean you have to stay that way.

I think it's a bit disingenious to blame incorrect calorie labelling for weight gain. I mean c'mon. If I get to the stage where I can't cut my toenails cos my overhanging gut is in the way, I know I have to do something about it.

I'm glad the causes are so obvious to you.
Science is saying it has just as much (as with food and exercise) to do with genetics and.....SLEEP.

Personally I gained 40 pounds in 2 weekswhen I went on prednisone. 6 months on it, 70 pounds. Did I start eating at McDonald's or drinking soda? Uh, NO.

Now that tells me that hormones don't have any roll at all to play. Right. Oh yes, it is so obvious. I'm fat so automatically everyone knows exactly everything about what I eat and do and how I live. Right.

Yeah, it's all obvious to me.

Typical woman blaming her hormones.

Only kidding again relax.

Yeah there are genetic causes for obesity but you cant put that down to all the people who are fat. The causes i mentioned would make up a bigger percentage.

Linking food & sex = National Obesity!!
We all know "sex sells" but isn't this taking it TOO far??
Even I, a healthy fit predominantly hetero female, find myself watching this commercial as if hypnotized!!
(And yeah...the salad looks good TOO!

I do believe there are differences in the way people metabolize food. My ex used to have to eat every 2 hours - or he would get headachy and irritable. But he was always drip thin. When on holiday together, I could only eat half as much as him - otherwise I would have come back as big as a house.
And I have a friend who eats enormous meals and can't put a pound on. Life just ain't fair

Yeah im like that too. My high metabolism means I can eat as much as i want and not put any weight on. I went to the doctor because i though there was something wrong with me. He warned me that although i did'nt put weight on physicaly. Fat can still build up around the heart and things. So i still need to be carefull.

Nuff said. But, go back for a second and re-read your OWN posts.

I think this thread is a great example of the crap clogging ATS' veins. Posters that feel they need to see their words on a screen.

Next time. Please, please think about what you really want to convey in YOUR thread and stick to it.

First it was Fat Americans, then just Fat Americans food choices, then American diet attitudes, then the FDA's fault, then just fat people, now, you pull out that, dispite your total aggravation with Fat Americans, you're sitting there munching junk food and pop whilst wasting away ranting at people on the internet. Classy.

Your point is fuzzy man and that makes for a crappy thread. Don't feel alone, though. Many do it and most times I ignore it and just move on, but, this thread aggravated me enough to post my thoughts.

Bravo.
